    I found this photo from the 2003 1x bike showing the oil sight tube and the special oil fill hose.

    Well I'll be damned...I must have looked at that photo a million times and never took notice. My bike is the later 2005 1x bike and didn't have that setup, but that 2003 bike definitely does have the site tube and something else going on by the filler as you explained!

    Unfortunately the order I am waiting for to finish the build has yet to arrive so I have been finding small odds and ends to do on the bike. Today I temporarily tightened both wheels to create a rolling bike for the first time since 2012!

    I managed to find the silver Renthal Fatbars at a local shop so I fitted them to help wheel the bike around for a few photos. Nothing too major in these photos but just some different angles and most notably the introduction of '1x' race numbers. The bike is officially now a 1x replica....at last :freaky

    (Excuse the quality of the photos but they were taken with my phone)

    This bike is looking priceless!!!

    I know you mentioned it one of the earlier posts but I couldn't find it, which brake rotors are you using? They look serious business

    Both are by 'Braking'. The front is a used floating 270mm rotor from Johnny Campbell's actual BITD race bike (courtesy of fellow in mate Slickwill), and the rear is a fixed waves rear rotor available online still.

    The quality of their rotors are amazing!

    Totally agree Johnno, they looked awesome!! As they cost a fair bit I will probably leave them for later, but would like to eventually.

    From the pictures you posted a couple days ago. What is that on the back right side of the swing arm? Maybe a GoPro mount? And on the left side I see a couple extra tabs on the swing arm, I'm guessing they are for a chain guard.

    Bike looks great!

    Well spotted! Yes that is a GoPro rear facing mount. Those tabs are OEM on the Australian XRR and for a cheap looking plastic chain guard which most guys remove.

    What type of carb did the Baja bikes run? Certainly looks like a CV carb, possibly with a pumper.

    You would think so, but nothing fancy actually - OEM. Because they were a factory team back then there were certain decisions to leave the XRR looking somewhat stock which encouraged people to buy them off the showroom floor.

    Also the benefits of a pumper in desert (flat out RPM) racing would be minimal, maybe only fuel efficiency being a positive but they had change-overs regardless.

    Hey, the race pipes are rare these days, I was just lucky finding mine and I had to clean it up and get a new sticker plate to make it look new again. You have to rely on someone not knowing what it is and selling it cheap because it's 'too loud'.

    Alternatively the HRC tipped stock silencer is great. I have only ever made my own tip by using a hole saw to cut out the smaller diameter insert which essentially becomes the diameter of the HRC tip but maintains the spark arrestor. It sounds great and helps the bike run better. Google the hole saw modification, it is quite popular.

    Hope this helps!

    :deal

    Diane was nice enough to get me the jetting setup for the 1x XR650R's yesterday.

    The bike: Pro Circuit Race pipe, open side cover mod, HRC cam, Batwing.

    The Jetting (stock carb): B53E needle in third position, 178 main, 68s pilot and 2 1/4 turns on air screw. (if that main doesn't do it they used 168)

    Just a short video to share the sound that the bike makes with the modified air intake and the Beastly Pro Circuit Race Pipe!! This is the first time she has been run since the total rebuild :)

    Wow that bike sounds NICE!

    ps purchased dirt tricks/ironman 15/45 recently as recommended by your build - very high quality sprockets. Next up will be the braking rotors!
