Thanks for the info. Any recommendations on where to attach the choke cable?
Some place it will reach and you can reach with the tank on. Make sure it doesn't pull on the 90*, fragile plastic that breaks easily.
Right about here, it takes a little tweak to the bracket but ends up under frame line so its safe from boots, branches etc. Also can turn it off with the side of your boot.
Same question but maybe from 0-1000' elevation?
Just picked up this 03 and shredded my plate the first time out...
Where has she been all my life???
I just picked one up myself

Here is my situation:
I am at 2000'. I am running a 22.5 PJ and a 1.2 AJ. The pilot screw is set at three turns open per the manual as a starting place for tuning.
The bike starts fine on the first kick and idles with the choke on. It dies shortly after the choke is turned off.
With the choke off the bike will start momentarily and then die. If I catch it running with the throttle it will rev and is rideable. Coming back down to idle it dies.
I am wondering if it could be the float level, the manual does mention a too high of a float level making idle tuning impossible.
Second question, what is a good initial place to set the idle adjuster. Once it is idling of course.
Any thoughts are appreciated.
Can xrr carry weight?
i reckon they can now
the added plate near the bolt mount will stop a lot of the side flex causing the ally to fatigue
nice work poppy
Indeed...how much does it weigh compared to the stock item?
3.2 kgs v 1.1 kgs .. but the 1.1 was just the ally sub no chainroller and bracket
so 2 kilo's more there abouts .. marginal to say the least ..if your loading up a bike ....i would rather have a heavy sub and make the trip or 2kgs less and maybe not make it home
there's aprox 40 hrs in making the first frame .. lets hope the hard work has been done .. test fit it tomorrow then off to the pwdr coaters ...then the real world testing starts
Saved more than that by getting rid of the OEM and fitting an Acro.
One think to consider, should your luggage be heavy, and cause failure, what will the point of failure be?
With the ally subframe, it is the subframe... Shearing the mounting points on the mainframe will be a huge issue (or not?)
Yes that has been discussed .....indeed we thought .. but i would be inclined to think the bolt would shear b4 the mainframe ..by adding the plate it will take most of the sideways flex out we hope and thus a more ridged fixing
it will make it alot user friendly when adding panniers or a rear rack os\f some sort ..trail side repairs possible if they do fail
i think to bust the backbone of the frame out it would be an almighty crash and tail slap ..of wich the ally frame would also be in the poo but if you bust the bolt out of the backbone . wouldnt be riding home anyways .. think me be in a chopper or ambo
And....what was the experiance like
Got a point, maybe not make the bolt to too high a grade.
Just picked this Bad girl up. . . Needed alittle TLC but she cleaned up well. . Now just to order new springs. Im way to heavy for the stock suspension. Need like a 11.5 or 12 for the rear and the heavest I can find in the front is .49
anybody have suggestion on where to order springs? Racetech?
This is a heavy bike. It's my bike.
Yea, but you're making the Yammer and the Suzy? look bad!
I know this is beating a dead horse,but I need some opinions on what spring rates to use. I weigh 185 i'm 6'5" and I plan on packing some lightweight things in my coyote saddle bags... I have stock springs in there, and I want to do all the Borynack fork mods, with the shim stacks etc. I'm just torn on what spring rates to use. Should I spring it for the added weight of my gear(40-60lbs?) and oversized tank(4.3)? I was thinking of going with .45 in the front and 10.5 or 10.2 in the back?
Any help appreciated!
Now... it's been awhile, but I THINK i have a 10.5 in my rear and I used to weigh as much as you... No idea where I got the extra 15lbs recently...
Either way, I think the rear is a bit low. I'd probably go 11 or 11.5 now with the matching front springs. I have a Acerbis 6.3, Race light, and carry 40-70lbs of luggage semi regularily. I weight 200, 6'4" + gear
For the front, you can play around with with a spacer / cut spring till you know. Once again, my suspension never or rarely bottoms, but it's a bit too soft for my liking and when I load her up with fuel and lugage it's sagging more then I want. It still rides quite well though. I need to play around with it more but i"m looking for a big boy rear spring and forks springs though.
With that said, size your weight, your gear, half to 3/4 of your fuel, and consider luggage weight. Then base your decision on this.
If you want a 10.5 I think I have an extra one in my garage.
