    is the FMX frame like the Domi or the L or is it different altogether ? ... in the pics i've seen the plastics seem to hide the downtubes
    also will the cush hub fit the L or better to go with aftermarket

    Parts fiche shows the FMX 650 frame to be unique. I'd go w/ the aftermarket cush hub because you know that it's a direct bolt-in. My $.02.

    Anyone know if there's an available 43T rear sprocket.

    Closest I can find is a Sunstar

    Steel Rear 520-42T
    Product # 2-356542

    Am I being ridiculous for really wanting that extra tooth?

    Looking for some Wolfman Side Racks for the XR. I regret selling mine and want another pair if anyone has some lying around.

    Rebel Gears will make any tooth count you want (within reason, if a 122 tooth is considered reasonable) for anything you want it for.

    Those bushings are no longer available even though they still advertise them for sale. I ended up making my own. 8mm ID x 10Mm OD x 12.5mm long ( would need to double check that though). With this, you can use the standard 8mm sprocket bolt/nut sets and gain a much wider variety of rear sprockets for the L.

    No need to make your own. Use these bolt liners from McMaster-Carr.

    They're a bit long so order these 10mm shims as washers under the nuts.

    They also have them in 18-8 stainless at 1/2 the price, they just didn't have a drawing.

    Blue smoke on decel normally indicates valve stem seals are gone

    Did it do this before the carb swap ?
