      Hi Steve, 2nd gear on my 1997 XR650L is starting to moan under load. You did the 2nd gear mod (I think you put in a CR gear set) for a friend and he loves it. Would you have time to change mine anytime soon?

      Steve: RZ Rob told me you would be a good guy to get a hold of if you don't mind for a few XR 650L questions. I have a 1995 XR650L that I bought a couple months ago. Have put maybe 600 miles on it. When I bought it I figured it needed a clutch since the lever was adjusted all the way out. A little while later 2nd gear got sticky for me so my brother and I replaced the clutch.

        Strangely, it had new clutch plates in it, basket looked fine. We replaced anyway and it shifted like butter for about 5 miles and 2nd gear is again super tough to get into with an up shift or down shift.

        Al Baker's XR's Only down here in Hesperia tells me they are 90% sure it is my shift hub and I am looking at a complete rebuild. 1500 I take them the motor, 1800 I take them the bike with motor still in it. Ouch.

        If I knew I would have to spend 4 grand instead of the 2 grand I bought it for the XR650L would not have been my choice. What are your opinions with the symptoms if you do not mind and thank you. Brian H. Calimesa CA 92320 909-208-4756

      Hey Steve, Erik down in San Diego. How's things. Still have the bike, but not much time to ride. Had baby #2 a year ago.

      I did rebuild my front forks. You would have had fun watching me do that.

      Hope all is well. Erik
