My current 1985 XR was a bit-o-trash when I got it too:
But later she looks like a new bike:
Got mine in same ish state..
pic does make it look better than it actually is lol.
Hey dudes since Im a convert I just wanted to let you guys know that they are selling the exact same carb I have and that xrsonly sells at a nice profit in ebay at a very special price of $157!
here they are:
the only difference is that it does not come with the intake adapter...but thats pretty much a sleeve they put on...so you could have one made or get one.
comes with the exact same jets and needle and needle jet the xrsonly comes with except that Im not 100 percent sure on wether its bored out, Im not sure mine is either but at this price it be nice to play around with...
Its no fcr41! pumper but its halfway between the oem carb and a pumper...
my performance is pretty damn good now, and you get the benefits of a dual float system that makes stalling and deflooding much easier, etc...
just thought Id put the word out dudes!
Aint that a 2stroke carburettor?
Which handle bars & what bend do you have on the bike?
but if you read a bit youll find out it was used a lot on many fourstrokes...ballards WON like 6 asutralian safaris on a slightly modded tm38 flatslide...on his xr600
PS. Xrsonly sells a kit for our bikes NEW for only $260, comes bored, with jets, throttle and new cable...also the intake adapter I speak of
they are cheap because they are more simple in design, have less metal parts and initially were designed for 2 strokes, they are also on a million bikes...meaning price is lower...how many bikes can you name off hand with a 38mm keihin roundslide like our bikes have stock?
mikuni flatslides right off the bat, bmws, kawasaki triples, etc...the list is long!
even the atk605 came stock some years with a mikuni flatslide on the XR600 ENGINE...look at the complete atk thread for proof!
The Kaw triples ARE 2 stroke. Notice the air , not fuel screw - 2stroke. 1 cable -2stroke. The vacuum of a 4stroke can hold the slide open.
Yeah, I believe you if you say so, but those carbs don't have a push cable.. Ain't that a bit tricky? For competition use i'd understand, you'd want as less friction as you can get from your throttle pull. but on the streets? meh...
On another note, received my 'newer' XR shock today! 50euros shipped. P.O. Couldnt tell me about the VRS (ven racing suspension sticker that came with. I'd just take it as a proof of rebuild.
what your point?
tell that to geoff ballards
after all a carb is simply a metering tool for air and fuel...
not trying to cause a discussion here but a lot of people are having issues with their stock carbs from wear...for very cheap you can get a better performing and new carb...
just trying to help
go over on tt and check out the many threads on flatslides...a new one calles xrsonly carb kit...
all good bros!
p.s. if you care to read there are many mikuni flatslide tuning pages on here...my carb has the air screw towards the back of the carb and is tuned much in the same way our stock carbs are tuned...in is rich and out is leaner, the reverse of the stock carb.
guys the push pull vs pull only has been beaten to death...
suffice it to say the even the flatslide has a spring loaded FLATSLIDE that will shut it down even if you cut your cable...
man hard sell
who wants a rebuilt and beatiful stock kehin carb
first $250 gets it!
Didnt know that, I believe you!
Now I want you to believe in me and somehow with that knowledge send me an stainless performance header plox!
dude at this point Id sell you mine...they are restored and polished! jajaja
I dont have time or money to save up for a twin exhaust muffler...
so I BELEIVE IN YOU!
Christian, I used a TM38 on my XL600R/XR650L hybrid bike when the stock 650L engine was in it. It worked killer. I'm more than likely going to use it on my plated '95 XR600 if I ever get the top end back from my frickin' machinest! lol
jejeje hey bruce, been reading a lot of your old posts over on tt, tm38 included
I for one would love to know what you end up with both jetting wise and engine mod wise
yeah its a killer carb once you tune it a bit...
here is the one thing that does it for me with this carb
while running lean it over on the street...it wont die
do that with the oem carb and post back guys..aint gonna happen and the reason is a dual float system that will keep correct fuel in the bowl(correct pressure on float valve) even at extreme angles...
the fcr41 is another great performer in this regard
I have a '96 XR400 in the garage fitted with a TM36 that has been on it since '97, never a problem, only repair was the float needle and seat last year. BIG improvement in performance across the board.
XR650R has a 17mm front axle, correct? And, pre-88 XR6 had the 15mm axle, correct?
Up to 1992 the front axle on a XR600 is 15mm. From 1993 on the axle is 17mm.
If you want the rebuild guides, I have them ony google docs. They are public domain and not copyrighted and may be freely distributed. If you want them just say so and I (or anyone else that has the links or docs) can send you the links.
I'd like them!! mounted the shock today and it fits 1-1, if you take the upper bushings from the old shock.
Only drawback is I found out the shock is leaking, so it wont damp.. Like I'm at sea!
@ elsalvadorbuddy: I took some pics of the intakeboot I uses to mount the XR on the standard airfilter boot. will upp them later.
