That I did...good way to start my day with a little humor.... This area would be perfect for the outdoor sports if it wasn't for a stupid war... Thousands of miles of trails, mountains, creek crossings, river crossings...Turn this place into a tourist trap for the dual sporters...

Sounds like you have answered your own question...

Rather than get into a boring nuts, bolts and a detailed conversation...sometimes, 'a picture is worth a thousand words'...


If she looks like this, run away...




If she looks like this, stay a little while and see how you feel...




And, if she looks like this, throw ALL the money at the seller and ride off into the sunset with her...




Hope this helps, good luck...

Broke a drive chain-now rebuilding the motor

So the first real outing this year broke my drive chain (primary drive, maybe two years old, less than 1000 miles) even though the chain is still tight and has all of its o-rings, well except the link that exploded. The first outing also almost broke my borther-in-law too; he had no idea what kind of riding he was in for.

Anyways, it took out my crankcase. If you haven't got one of the xrsonly case savers, I would strongly suggest you do. My factory case saver actually turned into a case destroyer.



Since I have to split the case, might as well rebuild the whole thing. And as long as I am rebuilding the whole thing, might as well build it up right?

So I just ordered all of the individual parts for HRC timing chain setup and some seals, crank bearings, and LH case. There goes $1k.

Next I will be shipping my head and cylinder off to xrsonly to get it opened up with the 102mm 11:1 piston and oversized valves, springs, etc.

It will come back and include a Hot Cam St. 1 and a Falicon rod kit.

So what else should I be doing or looking out for? I should be getting into the transmission tonight to do some measuring, but are there any parts that I should be replacing while I am at it aside from what I have already mentioned? Bearings that are prone to failure? Gears?

Oh how I can't wait to get this all back together.

Looks like a sweet setup.

Great, another shiny bit to put on the list.

In this picture it really looks high...I don't see how it couldn't work great. I'm going to try and mount this fairing with the quick disconnect mounts from Baja Designs. I have severial different lights that I use...this makes changing them very easy. The mount aren't cheap...good stuff never is.


Then I'm going to use this mount for my Garmin 478 (I'm not going to use a road book unless doing a DS event). The mount can be gotten from Charlie...

Well folks it's a sad day here. I have to sell the XR. It was something I tried to get for close to 5 years and now I have to let her go.

details here:

I just hope it goes to a good home. with any luck, I will be able to get another one soon. I just have some bills that need to get paid.

Interesting. My 2011 P-Core 4 is very quiet and legal. Maybe just look into a new insert and/or repack it. I found the PC T-4 to be much louder. PC's Type 496 is their quiet series.
