I got a 4.6 gallon tank from an inmate a while back and it needs to be cleaned out first. What should I be using?

Also I am currently getting 29.4mpg city mileage. I am stock carb + full uncork mods + FMF. Is that terrible?

EDIT: Also thanks everybody in this forum. I after many months I have my xr650r back on the street again thanks to your help. So much fun to ride.

slightly different topic: for those with usd conversions (front forks)...i am putting a set of crf450r forks (05 model) on my xr with a set of cr500 triples: going to use my xr wheel
what brake caliper bracket are they referring to when they say to use the 04 crf450 caliper bracket to position the caliper correctly. the more i look at the oem parts page, the more i get confused. i can not tell from the pic for sure, but i assume it is the bracket on the left in the pic i find - part number 45190-MEN-006
I know i saw it mentioned in a thread somewhere, but for the life of me, i can not find it now.
correct or ?

If it's bad, just use really hot water first. Close the tap, fill with really hot water and shake the hell out of it. While shaking, turn it upside down and pour it out of the fill hole. If needed, do it again. Once the garbage is out of it, put a pint of gasoline in it and shake it about again and drain that through the petcock to flush the remains and make sure most of the water is out of it. Re-mount and go about your business of riding the beast.....

Working on the jetting still.

I took the BRP out this morning in 35 temps. Kind if sketchy on the road with frost glistening on the slab. Once in the frozen dirt I took it easy throughout the ride due to the icy conditions. The bike ran awesome other than the idle always gets jacked up. Pain in my a**.
So I filled up before and after the ride. I did 56 miles and took 1.6 gallons = 35 mpg's. So at moderate throttle and not twisting the grip like usual, it got 35 :[ . Not great for dirt road and easy throttle riding.
Bummer.

Not sure where to go next. I do want to change to the 68s to hopefully help the pilot and idle. But mileage wise, WTH?

Hmmm, I run it right around the front of the left fork tube and back beside the frame. But I have the adjustable clamp that puts the bars forward and I roll them even farther forward, so the cable goes straight over to the fork tube.

Hey Doc,
I spent quite some time trying to get my XR front wheel to fit my CR250R forks and finally gave up and found a CRF front wheel on ebay. Fit like a glove and required no brake or hub mods.

would be easier, but i have both a set of black dirt wheels and a set of talon hub supermoto wheels (both xr650r) that i would like to keep...

going to either order a set of spacers from evolutionsuspension or go to emig and get the axle conversion that has brake caliper relocator included.....trying to save the expense of the emig relocator.

I understand. I was trying to keep mine in budget too. I ended up selling my XRR front wheel for considerably more than I bought the other one for. Let us know how is goes for you.
