issues

hey dudes...

well I took my IMS tank off today to try and fiddle with the mounts...

they are perfectly symetrical thing is the mounts or holes on the tank arent and the right side sit higher, making the tank tilt ever so slightly towards the right...

I angled them as much as I could downwards to get a little more height and then put an extra piece of rubber between the tank and rear rubber mount...

now I have a solid half inch or so between the right lobe and valve cover... it barely had an eight of an inch or less before..

now when doing this I take the tank off and discover that my carb slide cap was barely on...missing the rear screw and it was very loose...

I was under the impression the slide and all worked under vaccum so if its not completely sealed it wont work


someone tell me so?

anywhoo

started the bike after and no issues...has anybody experienced this? did I suck dirt in or something?

weird..

later guys thanks

christian

the carb slide is under vacum yes and you likely did suck in a lil bit of dust..but at the same time the slides themselves are pretty sealed off from the rest of the carb...think of it much like a piston in a crank case.....or atleast most of the slide carbs ive been in were this way...admitedly the needles in them arnt a perfect seal and some have a small secondary needle sized hole but thats minor

hey thanks shortlife...well here's hoping...

I would of thought that sucking in air through the top of the carb like that would cause the bike to not run well...

geez...

Well, I got my bike all put back together. Seems my fork legs are from a different year as they are KYBs and have both comp and rebound adjustment. I believe they are fit perfectly to the bike but I'll swing by my buds shop to verify the lower bearing has no issue, but it seems perfect as is. I need to switch the tailight wires around as the brake light is constant and the license plate light activates with the rear brake...woops! I think it is a vast improvement in looks and I'll know this weekend how big of an improvement the front end is. Total work done yesterday :

CR500 front end
Moose road warrior headlight installed with Baja Designs dash mounted to it as well as turn signals
all new cables
DRC edge 2 tail light
CR250 rear fender

Hey guys,

I pulled the plug out of the XR and found it to be pure black. Never good haha. I decided to throw a new plug in it and fire it up to ride it after it'd been sitting in the garage, and so my friend could ride it too. The power issue I was talking about earlier, the same from the video, is not as bad now
not sure how, but it's not! It gave me some trouble in 1st gear, but once I got it 2 or higher I could pretty much rip on it without and "hiccups", but when I slowed down and got it back in to 1st it started the same. I was going to play with the air screw to adjust the idle since the bike was warm and noticed that my carbs would pop away from the intake boot and come back (real quick motion) like a backfire almost. I changed the bands to smaller ones to make sure the fit was tight, pushed the carbs as far in as they could go and tightened them down big time. Didn't seem to matter after about 5 minutes of riding it around, when I pulled over to check it was still doing the same thing. Is this a worn intake boot or what? It seems like this XR just wants to give me problems. Always.

Do you have dual carbs? What I have found to make the carb installation easier is to warm up the intake boots with a heat gun. What this does is make the rubber a whole lot more pliable and the carbs go right in. Plus give the boots a squirt of WD40 for lube. Another thing to take a look at is the pilot jet. Make sure it is clean. A restricted pilot jet will give you a bad idle and just off closed throttle. Once you get the throttle open it changes to the main jet which if not clogged will run correctly.

It's an 85, so she's rocking dual carbs. I got the carbs (to what I thought) was as far into the intake boot as they could go and clamped them down, but I feel like I need to get a smaller clamp. I'll pull off the carbs after work today and clean out the pilot jet, that may be a key issue. You're full of knowledge as always, thanks a lot!

The carb boot has ribs inside that engage the ribs on each carb outlet so it should be very difficult to separate them with the clamps installed. It is possible to knock down those ribs in the boot over time if the carbs were clamped down without being fully seated. The rubber also dries out and becomes noncompliant, further complicating matters.
