Maybe another shot will help/not hurt?

Note the gas hog that is a rich jetted XR650R...
rider milks the white cow...(up to the top, then goes on reserve)
650 rider, Mr Buzzcut, needed 12 liters to return to truck...






Deep in these woods on the duncan creek trail, I thought of the elsalvadorklr when my bike wouldn't start or even pop.
(trailtech going to reset mode/acting up/BD battery pack dead)
It would be a bad thing to be here and have a bike that wont start!
In the end, nothing wrong, just lugging too much downhill on a rocky singletrack with high gearing loaded up plug...


the lookout on duncan peak


the spectacular folage in the previously burned duncan canyon


we crawled all over the landscape and up to the lookout


2manyrides did the duncan creek trail for the first time in 'bout 30 years!
Gotta get that single track!

Well, one can only hope that this time, i'll actually learn something from my mistake. Mabye the fact that i need to spend hard earned $$$ on a new wheel hub will help making me think twice before doing anything stupid.

I just bougt a new hub on ebay from an -89 bike, though it looks identical, i'm not sure it'll fit my -95 bike. What do you guys think?

check volts at kickover...of your are not getting anything over 30volts, new stator time...at least for me this seems to be the issue

should be getting my stator soon, so Ill let you guys know...

The reason I say it might not be your cdi is I have 2 that I use, one was taken off the bike and running and kept as a spare...the red hot shots one...and the oem was on the bike when it died...

since I could not get my bike to start after swithcing back to the red cdi...we are all guessing my stator got cooked...

soooooo

yeah...Ill be looking for oil cooler mods...Ill see what that xr400 guy has to offer...I need cheap now...or save up some...jejeje
What kinda voltmeter you using? Analog or digital? Is one better or quicker reading to use?

Eh?

Tried out my "new gearing" this weekend, 14-48 seams a little low for fast dirt roads, really reving at top end.
Going to swap the rear to a 45 and try again.

Wicked

started with
15-45 too fast to get over logs while lifting the back and feathering the clutch!
New rear because old had flogged out bearings, came with a 48
15-48 still a little fast on the take offs, feeling it's not perfect want more low end grunt!
New front 14 because counter shaft showing wear and I got an Unkown JT 14 spocket with a nice wide hub to counter the wear. Had to modify so very tight, not coming off in a hurry!
So 14-48 too many RPM, next change rear to 45 and see how that goes.
My first BRP so the learning curve might be a little on the low side.

I use either 14-45 or 14-50

14-50 for races/dirt only

anytime Ill be riding dualsport or anything tarmac I put the 45 on the back...

the 45 on back does a nice job of taming down the revs, however I still feel that on the road the xr needs a 15 front so I will be looking for a 15-45 like you had...

what was your top speed with 15-45?

cheers

3 or 4 pages back you can read the benefits of each with schraubers posts, ghost mutants posts and rogers posts!


all good info

what I could gather from all the posts is that a good analog meter is EASIER to read while kicking over to get a reading, however only a really good digital meter will give you the peaks in volts which is what you are after when looking for volts at kickover...

at least I think thats what I read...

you can use the 89 hub just fine...just get the newer style bigger bearings and install them along with a new internal hub spacer, seals, and odometer drive off a new model year xr...

this is what I did to my 88 hub when upgrading to newer style cartridge forks..excel wheel, etc...

Man I have all this too for sale, but nobdoy knows or want any of this stuff down here...jajaja

you can also buy and xrsonly speedo drive eliminator...if you do not want to buy a new odo drive...

Well, a press was probably not needed, i blame it on a very tired monday morning

Thanks though for the info, i guess i can use the bearings, spacer, seals and speedo drive i have for the -95 model then

The only OEM sprocket available for the 6 spline XR600R is 14. Given what I have seen with counter shaft wear I don't want to use anything non-OEM.


I am running a 14/43 combo which I really like on the road and fire roads. I would gear down if riding more technical terrain.

you sure can bud, its really easy...just switch everything over thats useable from the old hub THAT IS NOT BROKEN! jjajajajaja

new bearings for sure!

cheers

P.S. remember that once you remove bearings you must tnot REUSE them unless in an emergency...jejeje they get damaged when removing, its almost impossible to remove them without taping them in an axial manner...

this is true, there is no oem 15 tooth for our 6 splines however I bet THERE ARE OEM sprockets for other bikes with the same design as ours with 15 teeth,

whoever finds that EL DORADO wins a big hug, or a beer, jajaja

The NX650 has 6 splines and was spec'ed with 15T up front. That has been discontinued.

The GB500 also was spec'ed for 15T -- and is now discontinued.
