there is no 180 off on the xrs...it fires every revolution...

the whole point of installung the cam lobes down at TDC is to help installing the rocker cover...and make it easy...

notice in the manual it makes no mention of being 180 off?...all it says is install cam lobes down...

check the condition of the gasoline. try all choke positions? try push starting it.

this is true

nice new gas and a little starter fluid will make a difference

this is of course if its carb related or fuel related...

if it will start by push starting then it might mean you are having stator issues...ie not enough juice to spark well

I've heard about it happening, but it didn't happen to me, I think my oil almost burned,
when I pulled over, opened the plug it was stinking and smoking :)

That almost sounds like you ran low on oil.

Well it's kind a hard not to get low, cause it's consuming more then liter per 1000km's , never
ren out of it, but it gets very low :)


P.S. Don't know what piston am I running, didn't open it, but am gone when it gets snowy, what
I know is, I'm running on NX's cilinder (so its 100mm minimum), and the question is, will the FCR39
be enough to feed it? (I've found one from yz400, and I think it's 39, am I right)

Keep it man, and make a list of what you want or need to do to make it what you want. Slowly get it done! DON'T go to the dark side and settle for a KLR, you WILL be sorry!


It's taken me 2 years to get my bike where I want it to be, it has been SO MUCH FUN!

The key is not to get overwhelmed and take one upgrade at a time and don't focus on the whole thing.
Stick with it, you will be happier in the end. If I can turn my 88 into a bike that has gone 7K + miles this summer who knows what you can do

its all from a cr250r, thank steve for this...he just said do this and that and bam! thats my front end

Im pretty sure that any cr crf brake rotor cover will work on these forks as they share almost everything...

all cr/crf forks share the same mounts, brakes mounts, clamps, etc...

cheers bud

Question carb jets

search really sucks, can someone refresh me, standard 88 carb, I got a 65 and a 165 main jet, needle only has an "A" on it and I just dropped it one to second from top, does this sound right?

Also for some reason my throttle is sticking now, didn't let spring go could it be the slide sticking from the through cleaning I gave it?
