Ron, I was riding up in the San Juans and had a babyhead flip up and break the tabs off that hold the rear disk guard on, I didn't realize at first so I lost an XRs Only sharkfin somewhere in the Rockies. It also bent the disk pretty good, I started feeling a pulsing through the pedal on the steep downhills. Not a comforting feeling when riding up in 14K' mountains We were able to tweak the disk with a crescent wrench enough to get home. The bike ended up needing a new back disk, caliper carrier and sharkfin, a pricey repair

XR's only sells a integrated caliper carrier/disk guard. It's pretty stout and just the thing to keep that from happening if you're riding allot of rocks.

So, if anyone has a lead, or any ideas on finding those pump cups........

One last thing, although the cups are ethanol resistant, carb cleaner will destroy the cups real quick, so be careful.
That must be how I ruined mine, carb cleaner, damn! Wish I had seen this first. Just when you think it is safe to clean a carb with carb cleaner! Well now I have a TM40 waiting on a new manifold and throttle assembly to install. Sure sounds like the Edelbrock will be a lot easier to dial in for elevation changes. I am looking to take the pig up to Colorado for the RMAR and Westfest this summer and am worried about getting it jetted right for the elevation. That little red clicker on top of the Eddy sure is looking appealing for that!

Ya know, I actually found some huge boar decals on Amazon of all places, and they look very cool on the natural tank. I'll post up pics later.

Thanks for the great product!

I guess there is a few hundred miles left.

question on rekluse EXP install, replacing a completely trashed clutch

picked up a rekluse exp clutch
when you install these do you still use the judder and the thinner fiber at the start of the pack ?

also, when removing the old clutch it was really fried, some fibers were pretty badly worn, my downtube oil screen was also pretty full of debris from what looks like the disintegrated fibers, do you think I should pull the right side crankcase cover and clean the larger screen in the bottom of the engine ?
I flushed oil thru the frame and its clean now but am concerned if thats good enough..

thanks

Starkman, I'm pretty sure the cracked steering head was a rumor started over on TT, never seen a pic of it or heard from anyone who actually had first hand knowledge of one breaking, the XRR frame is very stout up front. Most of us don't subject it to any serious stress anyway. I call BS on the whole USD/frame issue. I wouldn't hesitate to do the swap if I could lay my hands on the parts for a decent price.

Looks like a great ride!

Agreed! If Johnny Campbell didn't break frames I can't.

As far as parts go, I used a 2001 CR250R set. I had them so the price was right. Interesting thing is they are stock with stock springs and valving. I'm sure you also read a lot of talk of spring rates and valving being off with the USDs. I ran damping at 3 clicks in from full soft on both sides and it seems real close. Of course running a 6.5 gallon fuel tank makes it too soft when the tank is full and too hard when empty. But they resisted bottoming well when heaviest and didn't hit my hands too bad at the lightest. I will say it has been a success. I used the adapter bearings and had to file the steering stops to get full range of motion on the CR tripples but not too hard to do. Another interesting thing I found was the CR brake hose was too short and interfered with my headlight, so I used the complete XR brake master cylinder, hose and caliper. It was direct bolt on. Also, I had Warp 9 wheels mounted on the stock XR forks and when I called Warp 9 to see what I needed to swap them to the CR forks they told me that the XR wheel was a CR wheel with adapter spacers and to make them fit just use the stock CR spacers. All in all the swap was pretty easy.

RideFreak, if you're serious about a conversion PM me. I've got the CR500 triples, a set a 47mm Showas, and even the front axle that you can have. I had to bite the bullet and buy Emig clamps because I had minimal time to get Burpy ready for last months ride in TN. You'd just need a wheelset and some machine work to complete. I'd rather have the parts go to an inmate that would use them then sell it all through FleaBay. I'm in Abq. If interested. I figure I owe you anyway because I used your schematic as the foundation for my DS conversion.
