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 .

Good morning everyone...

So per my posts a couple of weeks ago, some of you might recall that my XRR had lost compression and that it was suspected that perhaps the auto decomp mechanism might have become stuck. It turns out that, because of really cold weather here in Washington state, my XRR's coolant temps were not getting up high enough to allow certain moving parts to get up to optimal operating temperatures. This caused oil to get past the piston and in to the combustion chamber, thus gumming up rings and valve seats. After a tear down and thorough cleaning, new gaskets, rings and fluids, she is running better than ever. To remedy the coolant issue, per another inmate's suggestion, I blocked off 75% of the radiators surfaces with a couple of pieces of cardboard. Morning temps on my commute in to work have been much better. Whereas before my temps were in the 110-120 (!) range, now I am running in the 160 to 170 range at 50MPH, and higher with traffic lights/stop and go stuff. So don't be a dumbass like me and not believe what your Trailtech temp sensor tells you, heh heh

All of that said, what temp range should my coolant be at, optimally? The 160s to 170s sure are a huge improvement, but should they be any higher, say, 180s?

During the tear down I did verify that my thermostat is working properly...

Thanks everyone!

JT

I recall my thermostat opening around 180 or so, so I am going with that as what Honda thinks the ideal running temperature for the motor.

As per the manual… the stock thermostat will begin to open between 176-183.

CR/F conversion tripleclamps are finished... finally. We just need to install a set to verify fitment. We're down in Morgan Hill, CA. Anybody in the south bay have an XR650R that we could borrow for an afternoon? Will hook you up with a $100 discount if you want to buy a pair of tripleclamps. Product and pricing info will be up on our website soon, but most of them are already sold. There will probably be a few sets left over, but not sure how many until we talk to everyone on the list.
