Be patient Grasshopper.
I tried the find a K&N breather with a nipple at the local Auto-rama, but nobody had them in stock. Found a small push-on breather filter and used a nylon elbow from the sprinkler section a Home Depot. The hose is black vinyl (5/8" I think). This starts at the top of the case, comes in next to the upper shock mount and just lays into the air box.
I had to trim a tab on the bottom of the seat pan to keep from pinching the hose. Seems like a little mist/blowby residue is on the inside of the air box, but only a little. If anything, it is just another surface for dust to stick to before it hits the filter. I opted for the air box mount thinking it is the most shielded place to have the filter, and it's higher than the carb so in theory, this filter or opening will be the last place water can go. What ever filter you choose needs to breath as good as possible. That piston moves a lot air. Pics to follow.

Quick chain/sprocket question?

I'm planning on a longish roadtrip soon and going to go with a 14/40 OR 15/40 combo on my 88 XR600. Was wondering IF I need to get a 110 OR a 112 link chain to go with it. I have a 14/45 right now with a 112. Didn't know since I would be going dow quite a bit in rear sprocket size if a 110 would be better.

It's not THAT high geared.... I was told by a 650L owner who has done this trip that he had a 14/40 combo on and it was very good. My 14/45 gets a little buzzy at 60+ now

I think the L has different internal gearing.

I have 14/47 on my '88 XR right now, and it does get buzzy on the highway. But, it is as tall as I want to go for off road. It is taller than I would like in tight spots. 14/50 is better for trails, but of course miserable on the highway.

For good gearing both on, and off-road, I think the best solution is to add a TE610.

Thats what i fogured that the L was geared somewhat different. Maybe switching the front from a 14 to a 15 and keeping the 45 MIGHT work. I was told 1 tooth difference on the front sprocket is like 3 on the rear..

Correct. 1 front = 3 rear. Your idea of going from a 48 to a 40 rear seemed to be a bit excessive. And yes the XR and XRL do have similar transmissions with the exception of the main shaft which is 1 tooth different. So that does make for a difference.

I was running 15-43 with a 17" SM. With the 18" i saved a lot of fuel, but for off road was too tall..A 40 rear is too tall for a stock 600R...Just my 2 cents.

Best luck for the trip.

sucking ziploc filter goooooop take 1.

soooo

this is my technique for oiling and storing filters now

Im a cook by trade and souvide cooking is very popular...it seals in the juices,

well I did this with my filters

first you pour two or so capefull of uni filter oil in a new zilpoc bag....

you then smear it in a pattern similar to the shape of your filter

then you blow the bag up using air you can gingerley put the filter in the middle of the oil sandwich

then you seal the zilpoc bag up leaving a small hole or aperture where you can either use the tremendous SUCKING ability us humans have jajajaja

OR

use a vacum tube or safesail machine they sell at the walmarts...

this is what it looks like all sucked up



easy peasy...oooops thats someonelses line

OH

you then need to airdry the hell out of it in the sun!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

my issue was I was lame in not using solvents or cleaners, and it took me forever to clean the old oil off the filters and gunk, not too mention that process was not as good as using solvent which does it in seconds...yeah maybe I lose some filter life but hey

beats spending a morning cleaning the damn thing

cheers dudes
