I'm not sure that I'll do that... the plastic thickness seems a little lower than the stock tank... uhmm

ora maybe I can try to put the fan in a lower position on the rad..

Anybody interested in an e-start for the XR650R, if so I need at least a half dozen people to get the Joe Racer e-start back in production.
With the new Lithium ION batteries available now it will also help reduce a lot of the weight. PM me if interested.

I will try a push start, need to get a buddy to come over. I don't have a truck so I cant roll it down a hill.
When you try to start the bike, Can you kick the starter from TDC without going just past TDC?

I am 220 lbs and if I try to start at TDC I can stand on the starter and it may barely move.
I would say if you have the same issue, you should have good compression.

Any chance your header is full of fuel or water?

Try starting in 3rd gear. First is too tall. Second may work if you use the compression release to get the engine spinning. May have to do the same in 3rd.
Good luck

Clarke 4.3?

Must depend where you have your fan mounetd because both myself, and my buddy (using my 4.3 Clarke) easily fit the SPAL fan behind the right rad.

Our fan is mounted between the emissions tabs on the back of the fan. I could dig up a picture with enough searching.

You rotate your tire/wheel backwards to get to TDC?

Dunno yet but I'm estimating 3 times that going by memory of what a Joe Racer e-start used to cost.

I don't really know what the actual weight will end up being since the new Lithium batteries will shave a few pounds off.

Me too, if the price is similar to what Baja used to sell them for. I don't want to pay more then the next guy but there is a lot involved when putting these things together.

I'll keep you all posted on weight and price as soon as I know more.
In the meantime, mine kicks over first kick every time, it's when it's vertical, hot out and your exhausted that makes you want the e-start.

Stay away from the primary drive chains too. I love rocky mountain atv, but a hundred or so pages back you will see my broken crank case caused by a pd chain that failed premature. Also, when I posted my review of the pd chain on rmatv explaining how it cost me over $2000, rmatv gave me my money back (for the chain, not whole motor) and deleted my review. I got paid off and didn't even know it. Bastards!

Yeh, I was scratching my head on that one too.

Anytime the crank moves backwards the decomp kicks in, correct?

Cold weather temps...

Gents,

Quick question about coolant temps in colder weather. I've noticed that my coolant temps aren't getting past about 135 to 140 degrees according to my Trailtech Vapor computer, in the mornings, when commuting to work with ambient temps around 50 degrees. My commute distance is about 7 miles on arterials. Anyways, I let the bike warm up for about 30 seconds or so before leaving in the mornings; maybe I should let it idle a little longer?

Will my temps being so low cause any long term issues? Otherwise, the motor runs just fine and pulls like a freight train.

Thanks!!

JT

Yes please, I'd be interested too.
If price is right (ie not over the top) I'll buy it in a heartbeat.... but probably and hopefully will wait eons with actually mounting it.
This bike I'll never sell, and once old/ancient and dilapidated I just might want to have the option of mounting the kit then - if I'll remember it, be free of Altzheimers that is.
Now, what were we talking about?



Serious, keep's posted on the price, an better tell the weight-gain to someone who cares a bout that

You're not alone, in fact I think Larryboy is deadwrong here.
You only may rotate backward if the auto-decomp system is inoperative, so with a HRC-regrind or maybe also with Stage 1/2/etc hotcams? Definitely not with a std cam, it'll lift the one exhaust valve immediately.
Pls note Medisyn?


Larryboy, you have no habit of posting wrong info, contrary even - you're sure bro?

Never really thought about it, I have always done it that way. If I'm wrong, I'm wrong. The decomp activates under low rpm like a kickstarter going forward, I roll them around backwards with the rear tire, always have.
