Awesome!

glad you found out what it was..makes sense the prox being the issue...you didnt know how it was rebuilt, the crank that is...make sure they balance it after...

just to clear up a bit...

my frame reservoir has the odd flake or so that ends up in the strainer....thats what the strainer is for..

I DO NOT HAVE ANY flakes at all inside the engine or crank! that would be disastrous as you well know!

now report back

cheers

dont wrap steel headers.. Water will soak in and they'll rot...If you insist get stainless headers first..

Some additions to the ole' 88

I'm making her a bit more road worthy every day... New BBQ side rails on my Manracks rack, (thanks Mike)


And a set of Dirtbagz supports for my new Scout bags.




She is almost ready for the 1200 mile trip to Dawson City Yukon over the Top of the World Highway...

Welcome Nick If it's like my 88 and kickstart only, all it will have is a rechargeable battery pack for when the toggle switch is ON it SHOULD light up your taillight (for DOT and most state inspections) There is no need for a conventional type motorcycle battery, since it does not have an electric start.
As far as the taillight there is a TON of them on ebay and many other bike parts sites, just pick one you like. I would recommend converting over to LED on the tail light and signals as they draw way less on your stator. AND not to mention they are brighter and should last longer.

Hey man,

Could you take some close up pics of your pegs and the mounting point (don't know how to correctly describe it)??
I have an 87 XR and am wanting some wider pegs, but all of the pegs for sale are for 88 and up and I want to know it those would fit or at least kind of fit..

The pegs are all the same.

if you look at these

the 'gap'is pretty wide..

which as for older XR's this gap is significantly smaller..

Royal, it looks like maybe the only change is they started putting the springs on the inside of the peg rather than the outside?
If you weren't so far away I'd send you the old pegs, pins and springs from my '95 so you could see if they fit but it probably would be cost prohibitive.

Nah..

old models


the newer models have a piece of cylindrical sticking out of the main piece. Old models have a flat surface..

thanks for the offer. but receiving stuff from the US is hella expensive.. :(

It looks like then, all you'd need to do is make a couple of spacers to go where the cylindrical pieces are, weld them to the peg mount and use all the late model hardware with the later pegs, unless I'm missing something else here.
