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.

USD conversion

I know i saw it mentioned in a thread somewhere, but for the life of me, i can not find it now.
correct or ?
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.

I had some pretty nice stock shocks before too but the real reason for the switch was the ability to tune them. I am still working on dialing them in now but they are already nicer than the stock ones, especially with the big tank full of fuel.

Stock suspension

Looking for some sag info for a stock suspended 2000 with very little miles or wear.
I am about 180 lbs with gear and althought the bike feels great for the general trail and dual sport riding so far I will be riding it in the upcoming Sandblast Rally which is basically fast sand Forrest roads with the occasional deep ruts and large dips in terrain.
I would like a range of the correct static sag and rider sag from those that can help.

Might be the bike is set fine but as the second owner and the fact that I have never touched it the time has come to make sure.
Thanks

Yo ALL,

I bet this will be my last post here this year, so - Have A Super Silly Season to All!
Will peek in here again on the other end, and if you're going to light up some dynamite then don't forget to throw it away next hmm?

I think 80-100mm of sag is good. You really need to revalve it, and you will find the recipe for the shim stacks somewhere on this thread. That is the biggest improvement you can do to this bike.
