Sure have, got sick of worrying about the rear guard falling off mid ride.
Have to repair the thread in the frame downtube, seems the original owner was very agricultural, ham fisted and took a liking to thread tape. I have been putting up with this also but since I'm repairing the other issue's I may as well fix it all at once.
Thinking I might drill out the threads in the drain tube and Heli-coil it, 8 x 1.25mm.

Looking forward to your pics! I have an 84 XL200R also, can't wait to see your XL250R pics too, what year is it? Pushed an 82 XL250R off the Base Exchange floor in 1982 and had it for 11 years. It was a great Honda.

I topped up my oil and went for a 20 minute ride. Came back and found this.
I checked the oil after the warm up and I'm at 80% on the dip stick. WTF?




And the Edelbrock pumper carb has hesitation when accelerating.

It appears you have a leak.



On a more serious note, did you possibly overfill?

I could have overfilled. Would it come out of that area?

I'd assume if overfilled it'd come out of whichever seal it busted first. Maybe that one was the weakest one.

I'd try draining all oil, checking gasket in that area, tightening everything back up, then adding suggested amount, and see where that gets you.
I've read more then one post about guys overfilling the XR, and having oil in the air box area. Could check there too.
Just my first thought. Might want to let some of the other more experienced 650R guys chime in too.

Nice e-start btw.

I opened up a couple of UPS packages, stared at the Flying Pig in Progress for awhile and decided to put on the new Seat Concepts rack as it was the only thing I had all of the for.

That starter is obviously defective. You should get rid of it.....Send it to me and I'll dispose of it for your...


A hesitant Edlebrock is likely the accelerator pump being plugged or not working. Fix your oil leak problem first, then work on the carb.
