Re: Dave's Carb Mods

When the going gets rough, I tend to ride like the pig is a trials bike..slow/methodical obstacle negotiation... and I'm not reluctant to duck walk if things get really nasty. There's a small group out in Fallon (if I recall), they're on ADVRider fairly often.. they seem to focus on hauling across t...

Re: Dave's Carb Mods

I did daves mod, removed snorkle and run UNI filter. Stock exhaust. When I replaced the stock carb it was at 158 main, 52pilot, 1.5turns out on pilot screw and one .022" shim under needle. It ran well with those settings, however perhaps a bit rich. The CV lag was annoying so I picked up a TM40 whic...

Re: Dave's Carb Mods

First suggestion, use the <enter> key.. it's hard to parse that wall of text.. I have purchased the smog removal kit and will wait until the bike has been ridden for a while to make sure there are no issues before I install them(warranty). Smog removal kit will not necessarily void the warranty, how...

Re: Pit Posse Off-Road Tire Changing Kit

Pressure gauge and valve core tool pictured are junk, stick gauges are never very accurate and the valve tool 'wings' make it difficult to use if spokes are at all close (that style doesn't work well on my XR). And who needs yet another 12mm wrench or valve stem fish tool??? I have a set of those sp...

Re: Dave's Carb Mods

You'll find jets here: http://jetsrus.com/a_jet_kit_dirt/honda_650_XR650L_1992-2009.htm Note that there are 2 sizes of pilot jet, mine has the 23.5mm short version. The bottom of that page has the D shaped pilot bit which you'll need to adjust the pilot. You'll need screwdrivers (various phillips an...

Re: Dave's Carb Mods

IMO absolutely. Mine is a 2016, ran terrible with the stock jetting... It will be running lean which isn't good, it'll run hotter as well. The difference is immediately noticeable. You'll need a pilot screw D shaped bit (motion pro and others have them) you'll also need to remove the brass "welch" p...

Re: XR650L oversize gas tank, Acerbis vs. Clark vs. IMS tank

I think I would agree, however the extra .7 gallon in the Clark might be worth a bit of ugly. There's a lot of places out here 100's of mile from gas.

XR650L oversize gas tank, Acerbis vs Clark vs IMS

I'm trying to decide which tank. Acerbis 5.8 gallon, seems to have interference problems with regulator/rectifier and oil dipstick. Clark 4.7 gallon, need to fab stabilizers IMS 4.0 gallon, haven't found any reviews of this at all.. I think the Acerbis is right out, I don't need 5.8 gallons and the ...

Re: Queries to XR250R Mods (uncorking)

Dealers should have various sizes of jets, you need to know what carb brand and often the jets come in short and long versions as well. Jet sizes depend on a lot of factors, mods, elevation, etc. You're best bet is to learn about jetting, how to determine if you're lean or rich and start with the fa...
