    I think 80-100mm of sag is good. You really need to revalve it, and you will find the recipe for the shim stacks somewhere on this thread. That is the biggest improvement you can do to this bike.

    Hey gents, can someone guide me on my jetting? The bike's been running fine, but it's always had a slight hesitation between the pilot and main circuits and popping on decel downhill. Now that it's cold, it's acting hard to start and the idle floats all over the place.

    Uncorked, vented airbox (SRC perforated number plate) with a full Big Gun pipe.
    68s pilot
    178 main
    B53e needle with clip on the 2nd notch
    Primary riding area 30 ft - 4,000 ft.

    Thanks!

    Long time listener, first time caller. I've been reading this thread for several month in preparation for a D/S conversion I'll be wading into after the first of the year. I really appreciate the time you inmates have taken to write this stiff up. As a very small, random token of my appreciation, I've got a FMF Titanium4 slip-on up for grabs. I took it off to go with a quieter model. It's dinged up a bit, but hey, it's free. Cover some shipping for me, and I'll ship it out right after Christmas. PM for details, pics, etc. First come, first served.

    Thanks for all the replies, but the sweepstakes is over. lstzephyr was quick with the PM and takes home the prize. I just read his Baja report. Crazy. I really appreciate the effort that goes into some of these very detailed write ups. Have a Merry Christmas!

    the circuit that resides between the pilot and main is going to be the jet needle. i would try to drop the clip on the needle to the 3rd notch from the top. if it is still poppy and has the hesitation, try the 4th notch from the top. that is all i have for you.

    Hi All,

    Recently found an unused Hyperpro rear shock for XR650R for 150 bucks on a local 2nd hand marketplace.

    Does anyone have experience with them? Worth the money and the effort, stick to the stock one or look for something else for the future?

    As it looks I am marrying my XR650R, so stocking up on upgrade items in a good price should not be a bad idea, should it?

    Cheers
    S.
