Does anyone know if there is a bike shop in Vegas that carries any XR's Only parts? I need a Case Saver and front wheel spacers. Any advice? I would by them right from XRO but the lack of an address is alittle tough!

Let us know how the wheel spacer things work out.

Just be careful when putting the turned-down upper race in the frame. It has a really thin edge that looks like it would be easy to damage when installing it. I used an old bearing to help me tap it in my frame. Went in pretty easy. Would have probably went in easier if I had chilled the race in the fridge before installing it...

Went for the 2nd ride in the boondocks last weekend since putting on my CRF front end. Tons of rutted, deep sandy trails. With the suspension set up nice and a Michelin S12 on the front, it made for a good time with no incidents.

Help a newbie w/ some potential carb troubleshooting?

Hey guys. Bought an 01 XRR from a frined in the spring with a motard setup. It had a straight K&N cone air filter instead of airbox. I hav since had the motor rebuilt converted back to factory airbox, removed the Akropovic exhaust and went to factory exhaust. I have since installed all the accessories on it that UI wanted to make it a dirt bike again... but it has fouled a plug and I think I am on my way to fouling another. I does not want to idle and smell really gassy in the exhaust smoke. Anything short of full on carb re-jetting I can do first? I WANT TO RIDE THIS BEAST!!! Thanks.

Sounds like it's jetted for the old setup and is drowning in fuel...rejet is the only fix.

I don't think there is one, but I'm sure Sportsman Cycles (3475 Boulder Hwy) would let you have it shipped to them. Great folks there (same building as BITD HQ). Its a KTM dealer, but the only dealer I found in town that was knowledgeable, helpful and generally the sorta place I'd wanna do business. I think I hit most or all honda dealers in vegas last summer when I was in town for the race, but its possible I missed one or two. There was a discount tire shop that also had some parts and was generally quite helpful - not a bike dealer though if that matters. I don't remember the name, but I'm sure you can work it out:)

"Most definately out of spark"

JM, I'd pull the stator-cover first. If that lot has gulped water then your chance of a spark is little, but also you want to fix this gulping habit.
Dow Corning makes some RTV for electronics, a clear silicon which doesn't stick too hard but seals very well, used to 'anti-vibrate' electronic components. This stuff is perfect to watertight the grommet-area where the wires come out - if this is the gulping-cause.
If dry then you need to measure the various current & voltages, unless you've got a stack of spare parts which you can use/swap.

Any good way of mounting a license plate on the fender of an XR? I want it to hang down and be visible.

Any product available for this?
thanks
