Thanks, when I get to the end, I'll probably figure out most thing on my own . So as I'm reading, should I make an index?

^^^^

Absolutely DELUXE!

Dam it's all set up.
Question though, what's the set up in the last two pic's?
And another...
The rear peg set up is that a system that works only with the frame guards?

Started making the pegs myself, so I'll post a progress! There is a lots of things to be done on mine.
Should do the choke plate, clean the oil pipe and filters... And yeah, is there any cheaper solution for
sphere bearings in the dumper?

Fitting a FCR-MX 39

Hi!

I just fitted a FCR MX 39 carb on my -95 xr600r. From my first testride it seems to be running great!

However, fitting it in the frame was a bit complicated. The upper throttle cable can not be used becaus its touching the tank.

I have heard that fitting the same carb on a XRL works just fine. One reason for this might be that the insulator between the engine and carb differs between the XR and the XRL, another that the tanks differ. Does the XRL insulator fit the XR engine?

Are any of you guys running a FCR-MX carb on your XR:s or XRL:s and know of any solution to this problem?

I've heard people having that problem... I'm planing on fitting TM40! Did you fit some kind of spacers or it fits the stock rubber intake?

My FCR was from a yz 426f, the xr 600 intake rubber fits right on. Had to make a small spacer on the airbox side.

Installed and tested the XRs Only goodies I got for X mas:

Big Footpegs: Definitly worth it. Im 6'2 250lbs plus gear. I am much more stable standing. i don't teeter fore and aft. Major reduction in arm and hand fatigue. Easy install and they are Chrome! haha

XRs Only Power up tip: Replaces the tip on Supertrapp-type mufflers. It has a cone inside that supposedly helps the exhaust get out more smoothly.
Verdict: Its louder with the same number of discs. Effin Loud! There was a definite increase in power though. It seems to have soaked up some of my aforementioned fat jetting. It really cooks along in the 1/4 to half throttle range. Zippy!

Gripper Seat Cover: Like it! Install wasn't too tough with a decent staple gun. Really helps me grip with my thighs while standing. Seated in the rough it was much easier to keep my ass where I wanted it. Its a little harder to slide back and forth through the turns.

XRs Only Skidplate: Easy install. You need a T40 Torx Bit. Built solidly but a little rough around the edges. Does not reflect as much engine noise as another skid plate I had.

Real happy with all these goodies. The combo of the Gripper seat cover and big pegs really enhanced my comfort and control.

me too!

they are custom made at a sticker/decal place down here...

I gave them the side panels and they put on some vynil/sticker sheets and heated it on.

They have survived a lot of brushes and a couple of good get offs...

I will be doing them again whenever I get these looking bad again...

It was cheap here about $15 for both covers...

dont know how much it would be in the states but im assuming more expensive!

Cheers!
