someone set the garagefloor on fire again.

Cut the airbox open. All I could find on the web was people cutting open the side panel (airboxcover) for extra air, but with sidewinds (I ride a lot of tarmac lol.) and leg covering the cover it would mean the airflow is not the same..

Drilled a lot of holes and flattend the edges with a file and a soldering iron.

So, this is my attempt of a Honda XR 600R ( XR600R) 1987 airbox air box mod (for later searchers lol)

JA JA!

keep us posted

hey

will you ever ride dirt with the bike? if not then I would ditch the airbox and stick a fat pod filter on it and surround that with a pseudo airbox much like ATK605 bikes used.

they have much better flow abilities than our xrs...

check the atk thread for ideas...not only does my tm38 flatslide get used a lot on there but the system I just mentioned on both the rotax engine and our engine

just food for thought!

Yeah, because here in the netherlands we have like a lot of RAIN and cold dirty weather.. which means my jetting would fluctuate quite a bit between summer and rest of the year.

On top of that I will be riding dirty when I grow the balls for it, oh, and get some tires suitable for the rides they plan..

well Im off to check my frame screen filter after the clutch change and maybe filter my oil

you know strain the oil with a coffee filter, it works and I use that oil for my truck now

Yeah I planned on only down hard packed dirt (gravel and the likes) but I just recently saw the "offroad rit" video's which looked fun. Now I'll have to buy another set of tires if I want to join those rides.. and then I want a set of sumo wheels.. Oh man the numbers..

Turn your computer off and back on. Try again.

Cool, I tried that but no luck. I can muscle the wheel over (and hear it scraping the pads) and after a couple of revolutions it gets the tiniest bit easier. But as soon as I apply the brakes and let go, it goes back to being really difficult.

So any other thoughts or suggestions? Ideas on how to pinpoint the problem? I'm just sooo close to being finished.

Thanks,

John

Some times the brake line/hose will break down internally and while you can push fluid to the caliper it will not allow the fluid to return thus brakes on all the time. Have you loosened the caliper bleeder and than tried to rotate the wheel? If you did and it still doesn't rotate it's time to try another rebuild or replace the caliper.

Where are you? I have a few calipers.

Yeah I tried that a couple of times and after a while it began to work. I would barely be able to move the wheel, loosen the bleeder and then as the fluid started to rise up out of the tube, the wheel would get easier and easier to spin. If I tightened the bleeder, I could continue to spin the wheel fairly well (about 2-3 revolutions per spin) until I used the brake again, and then it would lock up.

So by this diagnosis, it appears that fluid isn't returning to the master cylinder and so keeping the pistons stuck out, is that correct? So when I loosen the bleeder, the excess fluid drains out and allows the pistons to return to their seats and the wheel to spin again?

In this case, changing the hose would be the correct procedure, yes? It just seems odd that it used to work fine, I cleaned the pistons and caliper, reattached it and then suddenly the hoses collapse? Weird.

Thanks,

John

You still haven't said where you are. I have calipers available. Brake lines also.

Spares. Never enough spares...
