Windmill....

Larryboy--will mark it on the GPS and try to take that "shortcut" sometimes when riding solo I kind of miss turns

Looks like to me you need one of those "dteering sampeners" heck you could have probably flown across that section at 60mph!

Opps sorry

That's what everybody says, I wanna see somebody else actually try it. I've done it on the 610 and the XRR and that's as fast as I care to drop into foot deep holes that look flat.


I'm outta here, gonna go wobble my way thru the woods for a few days...

Not sure what elevation you are running, but guessing you have the 19e needle, about 10-15 clicks out from full rich on the adjusting screw, and about 1.5 turn out on the A/P screw?
Just trying to eliminate the obvious.
I was able to figure out the problem with the hesitation/stumble last night, just before giving up on it. When I pulled the carb entirely apart, I didn't put the pump shot adjustment screw (the one on the bowl of the carb next to the exhaust header, also known as the pump bypass screw) back to the right setting. It was turned all the way in, giving way too much fuel off idle causing it to bog. I turned the screw out until the bog went away, and it seems to run pretty good now. Rode it about 25 miles with no sign of any issues.

It still leaks a bit of fuel out of the small tube at the bottom of the float bowl when leaned on the kickstand though. I suspect this is the float height setting. I did not adjust this when I had the carb apart.

crank problems ?

I was curious about XR650R's and what seems to be a problem with the crank lock'n up, I bought one a good while back that had the crank & connect'n rod locked up, & when thers a bike be'n parted out it seems a good bit of the time the motor has locked up and the crank is toast.

Is it just my luck or is this a common issue with the XRR ?

I wouldn't call it common, there was an issue with the big end thrust washer clearance on some of the bikes, it wasn't a big prob though. Like anything, run the crap out of it and not maintain it, something's going to give. On the XR, it's usually the big end.

That's one of my favorite roads! I have had the XR WFO for what seems like forever on that road. I have even had the 950 two-up and seen 100mph. 125mph solo. I really like when you went through the wash and the sun was setting. Makes for some good times. And no I didn't go through the wash two-up. I still wanted to be married after the ride. I remember my last two-up ride to Gonzaga. We ran into a Canadian chap named Elvis. He was on a 990s solo and couldn't catch me. At Gonzaga, he asked my wife if she was scared. Her reply "no, I was just taking pictures".

Thanx for the input Ride Freak, I'd love to get that monster run'n but kinda think'n that buy'n a used motor off Ebay mite be the best option,aint been easy find'n info needed to what it'll take to seperate the motor cases & then replace/repair the crank but what I've found it sounds purty technical.

I'm slightly dissapointed in how much fuel you can't get to in the IMS 4.6. I consider it a 4.0.

Never had an issue with my 4.6 IMS tank on holding the correct amount of gas.
