I have the acerbis tank. If no tank heating is needed then I'm more interested.

Where did you get the adapters for the carb?

A mate machined it for me.

Grego, you got the hot start button, I think that would really help get the XR running after a fall.

Adam, The 39mm is off my KTM 525, we're at 5K' here so all our motors take a pretty good hit on HP, almost 1/5th which really sucks. On this motor I just put in big valves, a 540cc kit and a mild cam. The 41mm carb compliments that build with the extra flow. The guy who did the work has a some other mods he does to them, it's supposed to feel like FI. I know that crazy statement but apparently he's really good at getting that carb to work perfectly with that motor. It already did pretty damn good. DS mileage usally runs right at 50mpg on these bikes. I expect to loose a couple mpg but it won't be far off as long as don't get carried away with the throttle.

I might sell my CBR wheels though.

yeah... not sure if the hot start and choke knobs are accessible with the tank on (got a clarke 4.3g fitted now but looking at getting a 7g IMS for long trips).
might have to convert them to cable operated.

i originally bought the 39FCR to use on my '81 XR500R. unfortunately it doesn't fit due to clearance issues between the throttle assembly and the frame.


i'll give it a bash on the XRR, as is, and see how it goes.
the guy who will be setting the bike up has dyno'd another XR650R with similar mods and a 41FCR... it will be interesting to compare results.

The XR's only have found few HRC high compression pistons , they are pricey but very rare , so if you want one dont miss your chance .
