im still saving up for cws chain adjusters and cool valve cover tops..

someday

however if money is tight or for the mean time a good regrooving and paint will go a long way...

thats what I will be doing...

you aussie bikes already have a DC voltage regulator, so just find out if you can how many watts its rated for no?

test ride a success!

hey dudes, just letting you know the test ride and hrc cam breakin was a success

I am going to have to play around with jetting a bit I think howver the performance even on a stock comp engine is wonderfull...

I really got a very powerfull lidrange now that I did not have before and its snappy from low to mid...my topend is the same howver cyclewizard saud I might need to jet down a bit or play with the needle and main so I can get all the performance out of the topend...

the test ride itself was another ordeal!

cause of the big rains a river I used to cross getting down to the beach was about waist high...and I wasnt about to drown my bike o the test ride so I had to ride about 10miles up again...

this led me to run out of gas, twice!

secret reserve and supersecret reserve got me to within a few hundred feet of the texaco gas station! jajaj

so a mild 1 hour test ride or so became a nice 3 and a half hour ordeal! jajaja

anywhooo

the bike rips, Im happy just need to tweak some stuff on the carb a bit but overall the engine feels nice...

cant recommend cyclewizard stuff enough!

thanks

p.s my oil temps were about 15 to 20f degress overall cooler than before the cam swap...Im thinking my jetting might be a bit rich as a result...I had a couple of flat feeling spots when pushing the bike uphill a bit...not blubbery, just a little flat at that throttle setting

When it's dry, I can ride faster than any Africatwin or Supertenere, whit whatever tires it's packing. This was
mostly macadam and stone... so no grip problems :)

You're still crazy!

The terrain I ride on goes from being to rocky, to packed, to soft wash sand and it all changes real fast and constantly. I love desert riding.

Hey! First post. Hey I bought a Moose Racing Shorter black lever and it said it was for OEM and It is like 1/16th of an inch thicker and did not fit my clutch perch. Do you know which perch I should buy to fit it? I bought the item : 1CNHA18 . Will this perch work? Its moose racing :

Question ??????

OK last week ran the BRP 60 KM ride shut it off restarted about 6 times no worries started first or second kick.
This week ran the BRP about 35 km or so shut it off, no restart, waiting waiting waiting about 40 minutes later and 100 or so kicks it finally fires back up, don't shut it off for the rest of the ride. Get back to base, some 70 km round trip shut it down, try to restart, nothing again.
First ride leisurely
second ride a bit faster, harder.
So it seems a heat issue, what do I do now?? Any suggestions besides selling it for something else?

Many people who have a definite heat issue seem to end up with a bad CDI. To test, heat the CDI and try to start. Otherwise, begin with the basics, check spark, fuel supply, compression, stator. I had a bad stator once which led me to kick the F@#** out of the kickstarter, started only occasionally and I had a bad stator. It's a simple problem in the electrical or fuel category, most likely.

Yeah that is where I'm at. pulled the tank off while we were waiting for it to cool down and couldn't see any spark at all, thought the strator was dead. Put it all back together thinking long walk back to truck, one last go, fired on second kick.

IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII

BET
ITS

THE

STATOR

ask me how I know this

just so you know xr600 arent known for bad cdi, unlike the xrl which is



it can also be the pulse generator...

If I had a long hill by the house I probably could of pushed started my bike with the faulty ricky stator

if its not your stator then look elsewhere...

but given my very recent experience the thing that fails most electrically on our bikes is the stator...after that I would say the plug cap resistor, then the pulse generator and lastly the cdi...

in that order...

let us know bud
