Had a few ppl ask about the bladders and bag
heres a shot of them



the hole in the middle of the bags is to put over your fuel neck
the bags have eyelets to allow for the bags to be tied down but can still remove the bladders

the bladders are 12ltrs but hold about 11ltrs each side
they leech fuel vapor so cant be stored in your bags or tent ....hence the bag option when empty the bag just stays there ...is far enough forward to not impeed your knees

i think the bladders came from these guys

Need some Supermoto wheels

LEt me know if any of you BRPerz want to get rid of your XR650R setup. Also where can I find the backing plate for a Twin Air Filter. My bike came with a K&N and a Twin Air but just the filter foam for the Twin Air and I dont really want to run the K&N if I dont have to.

Sounds right as long as you put "this side out" towards the outside...

Wink rear shock

So what is your guys opinion on the rear shock. I am trying to do a mental cost benefit analysis of redoing the shock.

Everything on my bike has been rebuild/built up, except the rear shock (has 10kg spring). Last night I changed the bearings, flushed it, refilled and recharged. It had a considerable amount nitrogen in the oil which had to be effecting the rebound, I assume it seeped in osmotically through the bladder over the past ten years.

I was ready to send it to racetech for a rebuild and gold valve and maybe a rebound seperator valve, but was going back over the Bornyack stuff and he says the stock valve is pretty good. So now I am thinking to just rebuild it myself this winter, and just put new seals and redo the shim stacks.


What would you do? Send it to racetech for $250-350 and get everything done? Do it yourself and just replace the consumables? Redo shims also? Or just oil and nitro and ride the hell out of it?

I don't race so not interested in the cr500 hybrid.

I don't have any real complaints right now, but I am sure it could be better.

The oil filter goes in with the rubber ring facing out from the engine , it takes 1.6 litres to change the oil and oil filter .

How did you know nitrogen was in your oil?!

Just use Borynacks site and use his valving. I'm 93.5% happy with it =) Don't think it gets any better once luggage is on either.

hey there guys. long time listener first time caller. wanted to first of all thank everybody out there for all of the help, support, and information you have made available to all xr owners in the adv. rider community. what a great group of people. i have learned so much from this thread.

purchased a 2000 xr650r from a fellow inmate back in feb. the bike has very low hours and seems to be well set up. uncorked, rejetted, nice seat, tank, etc. after owning many different bikes in the past, i am having an absolute blast with this one. until the other day.

with my truck in the shop with major timing sprocket issues. i have been happily commuting on the pig. then all of a sudden it will not start. usually 1/2 choke and a couple of kicks and it is good. i have kicked the thing a hundred times in the past two days and nothing. i feel like it is not getting a spark, but why. went to pull the plug last night, but didn't bring the right size plug socket. ( bike is at my girlfriend's house and thankfully she is letting me ride her sportster )

here is where you guys come in. i feel like it is something very simple that i am overlooking. the carb is stock and it is definitely getting fuel. ( i can smell it ) the kill switch is not stuck and the decomp lever is operating freely. it has plenty of fuel in the tank and yes i have opened the petcock valve. i will get the plug out tomorrow and see what is going on, but in any case i have been looking for an excuse to post something here, so now i have it. thanks in advance for all of your help

one other question is ... do y'all have any recommendations on spark plug types?

best of luck to everyone, and you fellows down under keep up the entertaining posts. cheers

For me, hard starting is usually a sign of either a clogged idle jet in the carb (not likely in your scenario) or valves out of adjustment. You'd be amazed at having the results of the right valve lash....

To check for spark, you don't need to remove your spark plug. Just pull the cap and put it on a spare (doesn't even really need to be the 'right' one, either). It's a bit more figgidy trying to get it grounded and kicked over by yourself, though.

Hi ya'll,
I'm a bit overwhelmed trying to find a good aftermarket seat that fits the Acerbis tank. I've search and searched and there is almost too much information out there. Unfortunately, I haven't found what I am looking for. Some aftermarket seat makers (like corbin) have different model seats for different tanks, but none specifcally mention the Acerbis 6 gallon.

So here it is, I need a much taller aftermarket seat for my XR650R but it has to fit on an Acerbis 6 gallon tank. Let me know if you have this setup and what seat worked for you. Thanks!

My brother has an SDG tall seat and it seems to fit just fine with his Acerbis 6 gallon tank. It's a better seat than the stock, but is certainly isn't a Renazco or a Corbin seat.

Because when I removed the rebound adjuster it shot oil all over the place. I think my bladder might be bad.

Does your rebound adjuster make any difference that you can notice? It doesn't seem to change much on mine.

I've got a Corbin for the XRR, it fits all of the smaller tanks(IMS/Clarke) except the 6.3 Acerbis. Had a Renazco on my 610, it was okay for 2007 dollars, at todays going rate I'd look for something else...buy foam and cover make your own seat type of thing.

The bladder pressures the whole system. What you did was allow the bladder to expand and push the oil out.

The bladder is probably "worn" as per manual anyways. A new bladder is ultra cheap and might as well replace it. If you take it off, or reduce pressure to 0, it should return to unwrinkled shape. I bet it won't and that's when the manual says to replace.

Seat Concepts is worth checking out. Way better then stock, but I can't compare to other seats. Fits Acerbis no problem.


For spark plugs I just use the factory recommendations. They can be found at Napa here in Canada. I assume Autozone, etc would have them in the states too.
