    I have a 2002. As I was attempting the utbdr, everything was going great. Day 4 a knocking sound started at idle and while I was riding. I continued to ride. The bike ended up bogging out and wouldn't go over 40mph. After towing it back home. Tore the bike apart. Thought it was the cam. Replaced the cam. Had work done on all 4 valves after getting a compression test. So the top end is in great shape now. Started it up and the knocking is still the same. What in the bottom end could it be? My buddy suggested the crank. I'm not the best with bikes. Any advice would help.

    Nothing wrong with wanting it to look nice. Especially if he drives it in town. My friend rides an XR600 to work and parked in in the front on the side walk. The thing is definitely not a looker. Always dirty, and scratched up plastics, he refuses to make it look nice. His manager told him he couldn't park it in front anymore. I wasn't surprised.

    Check the clutch/adjusters?

    My clutch knocks but it's been doing that for years. Maybe yours is slipping...

    What, you got a date or something? Put your hello kitty sticker over it, and call it good. Hey, did you ever get that pink fur to stick your rims? I really think it needs more sparkles.


    Put the god damn bag back on that piece shit and ride it. My panels were new in 2002, and look they look fucking spectacular.

    Btw, I don't think this bike has ever got anyone a piece of ass.

    Of course it has not gotten any "A" piece of ass......... "a" piece would mean only 1 when the XRR is obviously capable of getting its' owner many, many pieces!:lol3

    Doubt that also actually, think you need a Harley for that. But I'm sure it'll get mine a few times, they all do sooner or later :D And, after a few off's one doesn't notice the damage anymore, but until then I'll keep it neat, nothing wrong with.

    Bike is starting fairly easy now and as I rode it into work the wheel got off the ground as I darted into the commute lane. :D

    I am still seeing a few issues. Sometimes I still get a loud backfire when kicking it over. Scares the crap out of the dog. :rofl

    I am still getting some popping on de-accel, but other than that it seems like its running great.

    Man so much fun to ride to work. I get a lot of WTF looks from people.

    Anyone got an idea where to find a used RAD cush hub or similar? Can one order spare rubbers? :1drink

    I am not sure what you just said, but I am guessing you are talking about the radiator mount rubbers? You should be able to order those. IF not, should be easy to make as well.

    I think he's referring to RAD hubs, with the cush drive. Pretty sure you can get replacement rubber

    Right... :huh
    "b" and "n" are too close... sorry. :evil

    Yep, was talking about those (got it edited now). There is no cheaper alternative - or is there?

    Thanks!

    Just got off the phone with Kyle at ElectroSport after waiting for him to call me back from last week. He never called and they are amazingly hard to get in touch with! Anyway, my tail light bulb from the kit imploded within the lense and I need to replace it but have no idea what to get. He claims they never made kits even though I have all the instructions and directions with their name on it? Well here I am needing a damn bulb and have no idea what to get. Any suggestions? (yes, I already combed through the literature I have, to no avail) :D.

    Does there exist a mirror(s) that I can get on my XR that wont blow back at 75mph? I have a double take and its impossible to get it to stay. The lower mount ball is loose in the housing and moves. The RAM clamp is solid and does not move. Once I go fast, the mirror becomes only good at looking at my arm. I love the doubletake, if it would stay still!
