Anyone replaced a clutch lately? I was going to order OEM Clutch Kit(plates,springs etc) from Honda but it's listed as discontinued.

Anyone have a lead on the complete OEM kits?

I bought my bike years ago with an Edelbrock. I loved running that carb, it pulled fine, got great gas mileage and was easy to tune. But when Edelbrock stopped stocking parts to rebuild it (especially the accelerator pump), I saw the writing on the wall and sold it while it still worked. And I went back to stock. I can't say I'm overly impressed with the switch back to original. Sure, the stock carb, properly set up, pulls REALLY hard on the top end. The bottom end bobble that people talk of isn't there when you you have the jetting right. But the mileage sucks when you DO have it set up right. It isn't such a bad compromise when you have a 6-gallon tank....but bad mileage just irks me. And my stock carb with the jetting I have doesn't have the hot start/tipover issues other mention. And the Edelbrock was the bees knees when it came to re-starting after a tip-ovah.....

I bought an extra rebuild kit and am still running the Eddie. I love it, really love it. Easy to tune, tolerates altitude and imperfect tuning well, great mileage, and it' always starts really easily. Doesn't matter if it's been upsidown and stayed that way until I woke up. One half-hearted kick and it always starts Don't know what I'll do if/when the Eddie ever wears out and can't be repaired. Maybe megasquirt or steal the FI off the honda quad with a sorta similar top end

For those that may have missed my posts a ways back, according to an Edelbrock tech I spoke to last week, they are gearing up to make replacement parts (at least the accelerator pump) again. If what he told me was true (and I don't know why it wouldn't be but these things happen) they were supposed to be available again in a couple of months. If you have a working Edelbrock that you like, I'd hang onto it and see what happens.

I could punish my 2002 XRR down to 23 mpg with the stock carb, just wringing the poor things neck, but if I rode smooth with a little short shifting I could get 45 mpg out of it with the same jetting...that's one strange carb.


Edit...XRPOWER, tell us about those pipes, love it!!!

I ride mine exclusively on the street,, and get 42-48 routinely. Mind you, that's commuting on the freeway with the occasional canyon flog. My range on a stock tank is right at about 110-120 miles.
Strange carb indeed when I read about 23 mpg for some of you.

With the stock carb I saw worse mileage than my TRUCK once.

FCR adapter?

Hey guys, I've finally decided to go for a Kehin FCR and have some questions. I've found a 41mm FCR from a 2006 CRF450R and want to put it on my 2003 XR650R and can't really figure out what adapter to buy to make it work.

I've read of guys making them or buying them from places like NOSS, Sudco, Power Barn what do you recommend using for the CRF carb?

I'm also running the HUGE IMS 7 gallon tank, any experience with this tank and the FCR carb would be helpful thanks.

Talk to Mikie1 on ThumperTalk. Apparently he has done both and has some good insight.
