No just some cheap paint. I know it won't last forever. Will redo it again when needed. I do need new tires, but may wear those down a little more. As for the scrapers I will pull them off. I don't ride much mud anyway. Thanks for the tip!

Those tires still have plenty of life left in them. I love stock tires.

Changing engine oil and filter. There's got to be an easier way.

Depending on how crazy I go with my winter build, mine may look like that too. If I can find a stroker crank it will be a definite. Thats a good idea to set it on blocks with a drain pan below. Its shocking how much oil is still in these after a full drain.
Must be your first time huh? lol

Stroker crank is or will be a custom build. The xx uses a very short rod compared the XR650r. Probably one of the shortest rods known to man.

i am trying to diagnose why mine wont bust off as quick as it did with less than 100 hrs on it. it has 300hrs on it now,and never had a valve check for cleareance, imagine its about time ,maybe new rings too, and inspect the head.gonna do compression check and check valves first i guess.i cant complain with 300hrs and needing maybe a little top end work.

tbird88 I would really look at your valves and valve seats as well as checking your cylinder to make sure it is not worn out, these things can make the bike loss power very easily. I work on cars for a living and I know that in racing applications valves can take alot of abuse and not seat correctly or start to pull into the seat not allowing them to seal and allow compression to be lost. Also be sure to check the valve clearance before you disassemble it, it may give you some indications of your problem before you do your disassembly. If your valve clearance is tight then the valves may be pulled into the seats. If they are lose then you could have valve tip wear or rocker arm wear. Good diagnosis before disassembly always makes things easier then hoping after your reassembly that everything is going to work.

Just tried a spray wax on my plastics. Used Meguires Ultimate Spray Wax. Bottle says it can be applied to paint, plastics, headlights etc. It went on easy and looks good, but gave the plastics a static charge. Won't use it again. Makes your hair stand up. Not a good idea in dusty conditions.

Made a PVC tube tool box today. Anyone else do this? I made a 2" x 12" then decided I wanted bigger, so made a 3" x 12". Just gonna wire tie it on under the rear grab bar. There is a natural curve there for it to nestle. Will get some pics up in a moment.
