The amount of spring pressure determines the rating ie 1.1 or 1.8 (atmospheres/Bar)
Outside pressure holds the cap shut, the lower the pressure the easier it is for the cap to open.

XR stuff

I had a gentleman by the name of Creeper on this site redo the head on my 650r. Did a good job. In fact somewhere on this site he put up pictures of all the work he did. I have the batwing in my airbox and it is probably the best bang for the buck that I have used. Seemed to smooth out the power and pulled harder off the bottom and make jetting less critical. I got mine at Precision Concepts but I do not know if they are still available.Also if you run the stock cam do not cut holes in your side panel- it will run worse.

Guys, I am just clueless about this bike I guess.


I just checked the oil after about 100 miles (if that) of riding since I changed it. I'm pretty sure I'm doing it right, but with the result I get, either oil is just disappearing or it's leaking somewhere. I can not find where it is leaking if it is, and there is no oil under it where it sits, or in the skid plate, or in the air box, or in the left crankcase. What I get is a very small amount of oil on the tip of the stick. When I changed the oil, I put a little over a quart and a half. Noticed it was a little low 3 days later, so added a very small amount more. (below 2 quarts)

I'll go over the way I check it. I start it, let it idle for about 5 minutes, turn it off, tilt the bike up straight, pull the dip stick, wipe it off, dip it back and pull it out and look. Am I doing something wrong?


Also, the bike is still ticking. I read a thread about ticking on here and was sure it had to be the manual decompression out of adjustment, even though I adjusted it after the valve check. The lever on top of the head does not move at all. So apparently it isn't that.

I have a video but windows vista (ahhh) seems to be having trouble reading my SD card... so I'll upload it when I can.

This is VERY frustrating.

Here is the video, when it processes it will be available to watch. I was pulling the manual decompression a little to show that the noise that it makes is the same as what I hear.

Ride Height & Airbox spacing?


Is the ride height an optical illusion due to the tyre ?
Has the airbox been moved to allow for the tyre rubbing through?
Would appreciate more info on the setup.

The US boys appear to have different output stators than the OZ versions.
I have considered redirecting the supply for the flasher can to charge GPS etc.
Supplies 12V8W x 2 per side DC, should be up to a small GPS, any thoughts?
Any info on how the OZ safari bikes were set up would be appreciated.

Sometimes I can't tell if someone is serious or not. Maybe this is an inside joke? We all know that the spring pushes the rubber plug deal against the bottom of the fill neck - which in turn pushes the cap top up against the tabs on the top of the fill neck. Outside pressure doesn't hold the cap on...

Sorry V-rider,
I worded it wrong. My bad.
The guys were talking about the bike boiling and i was thinking along the lines of.

If we ride our bikes up to higher altitudes the cap rubber plunger held in by the spring will open due to less outside air pressure.

Cheers
Glenn

Dave37,
It maybe the case of checking the valve clearance again and see whats happened.

With the oil level senario,
It is a pain to check it sometimes.
I have checked mine and it seems low then run the motor a little more
and the oil on the dip stick seems to appear from no where.

Go for a ride for awhile and check it straight away when you get back.

How this helps
Glenn
