I was looking at those, seems strange. I am worried I am too wide for those and I will just be looking at my body.

I use the large 280. I tried the inside mirrors but I am too wide. I tried under the bars but my large tank gets in the way

I beg of you, is there someone who can test a handful of CDI unit for me?!?! I still get no spark from my bike after changing out everything. I am not 100% sure that any of the CDIs are even good. I am chasing a ghost!! If I can eliminate the CDIs as being the problem then I can move onto other things. I will pay shipping both ways and give you some $$ or something for your time.




What is the likelihood of the flywheel magnets going bad?! Sounds pretty much impossible to me. The FW on my bike has been lightened but I say it is not the FW. The reason I ask is that is the ONLY component I have not changed yet. I do have a spare stock FW, maybe I will try it just because. Thanks again guys.

I'm not sure of how to test a cdi but if you send them to me I will swap them onto my bike and see if it still runs. Best option I can come up with, maybe someone else can do more but if you need to just send me a pm and I'll try them.

Yeah, this is what I had in mind. The only sure-fire way to test it is on a bike that is know running. Swap the cdi and if it fire up then it is not the cdi. I'll pm ya! Thanks

Yeah I can do that without a problem. I even just converted my seat to a dzus on setup so I would get to play with my new tool less electrical changes.

Yup, I put the head in a box, sent it to xro, and it came back with bigger valves. I think it was +2 on both sides. Its hard to say how much difference it makes, but it does something.

I don't have any pictures of it yet but I'll take a couple and post them next week. I switched the radiator shrouds over to a dzus fastener(which was quite easy) and added a dzus on windshield to my 8" racelight too. I'm a fan of quarter turn fasteners.

I've got a harley carb(hs40) and a master cylinder off a trx450 quad to add on too. That means I have parts off three suzukis, three different honda models, bmw, harley and some circle track parts on my xr.

I'd like to see how you did the shrouds too! Sounds interesting.

How interchangeable are the XR650R front wheel with the XR400R front? Is it a straight swap? Same axle size and brake rotor?
