    I am looking to buy a oil separator and hoses for the L. Does anyone have one they would sell? Pm me and let me know. I might have some stock parts we could trade for. Thanks Ben

    Lonestar,

    Best bet is to find a CRF-X front wheel. X axle and speed-o drive and your set to use the OE speedometer. If you can source these parts it's plug 'n play. If you want to use a Vapor computer then a R wheel will do. Depending on what triples you get you have a couple of choices for the stem. Emig if you use CRF triples, OE if the RSW triple or get a CRF and turn it down.

    So if you get the CRF forks turned down you can use the stock XRL triples?

    XR400 oil cooler

    Figured I would give you guys the first offer on this one before I put it in the flea market. I'll post it up there tomorrow. The first buyer fell thru so..... I have an XR400 oil cooler for sale. Its just the cooler, no lines or anything. Its in a bag, wrapped in duct tape, and then another bag. Didn't want it leaking on my stuff. :lol3:lol3

    After looking on Ebay I figured a good price would be... $110 shipped.

    Ya, I had it on a shelf because someone wanted it. Since he was using the postal system with a check I gave him a lot of time. However its been 3 weeks with very little communications. So I've decided not to sell it to him since his last email said "The wife should have sent it out a week ago, I'll check it out when I get home and email you back." That was about 4 days ago. If his check ever shows up, I'm ripping it up and trashing it.

    So its now for sale again. Do you want it?

    Today I did some maintenance on my XR650L, so I took the opportunity to examine my chain slipper roller. Here is a photograph of that roller after 29,000 miles of wear. :D

    For the purpose of comparison, here is a photograph of the same chain roller after 8,000 miles of wear. :deal

    I am very pleased with this chain roller; it only cost $10, and is virtually maintenance free. :D At this rate of wear, my chain slipper roller might last the lifetime of the motorcycle.

    This chain roller makes a little noise, but I don't find it objectionable. If you decide to install a similar chain roller, I do recommend you add extra grease to the sealed bearings. :deal

    Ill be doing this mod when I get my new chain and rear sprocket next month. Am already on my second stock roller in 40,000 miles. They cost more than $10 from the dealer.

    I am going to be putting a stock tank up for sale. It has a nick in the paint. If you are in the market let me know.

    I am also going to be unloading a set (4) stock cables. Clutch, choke, throttle(2)

    Noob question here...should I leave the fuel on or turn it off when I shut down the bike? The guy I got it from said something about the tank vapor locking when you don't turn the fuel off but I have no idea what he meant by that.

    Turn the petcock off. Make it a habit. Nothing worse than opening the door to the garage in the morning and have a three gallon puddle of gas on the floor.:eek1 What'll really cause you to pucker up is the click, click, click of the water heater ignitor:huh

    So... I think all of my clutch questions have been answered, but there is one more issue I am trying to diagnose.

    At lower RPM's the bike is a bit jerky. The engine seems to be running smooth, but the bike seems kinda clunky, hard to describe... As soon as I increase the rpm's a little, or downshift, it smooths out again. I've checked chain adjustment, and the only other thing I've changed is putting on a Moose CS sprocket, but it had the same issue with the old sprocket also.

    Am I just lugging the engine too much, or do I have worse things to fear?
