And No, I am not a fan of the Hot Cam
You mean overheated cam?

It's my opinion that the Hot Cam is not the way to go. I would rather run an OE cam than chance one of theirs.

Bar risers and taller bars

Can I have your opinions on bar risers and taller bars? I am running the bars that came with the bike, and it seems that I would be more comfy with the bars higher up. I have read the "cockpit" on the XR is tight, but I do not have any experience with this kind of "tuning". Seems the Rox riser is popular, has anybody had them slip? Thanks!

Take a look at this triple clamp and riser set. I have his triples on my XR650l with the 3" risers. I'm 6'2

Thank you, Steve. How does a tall bar position help you?
Where my bars are now, it feels like in some cases that I am too far forward and my arms are bent too much for good control. Seems a taller bar position would push me back some, right?

Righteo. To be honest the decompressor is pissing me off a bit at the moment, I'd rather be able to find TDC without having to baby it. Is that both auto and manual decompressors? Also, hows your bike going with the new cam... did you happen to dyno the bike before and after?

Cheers - boingk

So I've got this like new Scotts/BRP forward mount stabilizer post setup that I took off my XR650R. Supposed to fit the XR250/400 bikes. Though one of you may be interested.

This is a stock photo. It doesn't include the stabilizer arm. Like new: $100


PM if you want.
Im also selling my deliciously tricked out and delicately cared-for XR650R. Here's a sneak. More trick bits than I can throw a stick at: Trail Tech Vapor, BRP submount triple clamp, Clarke 4.3 gal tank...etc...etc. The list goes on and on.

I had CR Hi bend on my XR600, but for stand-up riding they were too low.

With the Rox Risers it was much better, and no I never had them slip at all.

Sounds good to me. And no offence to Prince Ruben, but if he didn't have serious engine problems before installation of the cam, he sure did after. Camshafts don't disintegrate like that for no reason. I'm thinking sustained oil starvation from a blocked passage or extended running on low oil level. Hell, throw in some overheating and you'd just about be there... but geez thats not a pretty picture.

Might get my oil cooler together before I throw a cam in there.

Cheers guys, much appreciated - boingk

Cheers HRC37, but for now I'm rigging my own oil cooler up out of copper pipe, t-pieces & 90' elbows. Bit controversial but I'll see how it goes.

It gets plumbed into the frame reserviour return line, right?

Looks alright, although I'll be looking at about 15 Euro (AU$30) all up including fittings. Just have to make the thing now...

Also, whats the consensus on aftermarket ignition units for the XR600R? Something like this is what I'm thinking of getting:

What do you reckon?
