item from 04 going on to 03

Post  xr honda to the max on Wed Jul 09, 2014 3:12 pm

l have used many components from the 04 to make the 03 what l need
l used the new seat from seat California , used the fenders and it came with new ufo side panels
it had nice bars and riser keep that on bike
had the usually repairs to the swing area axle adjuster seized bolt and water in swing arm, had to drill out , worked out ok
Bought a digal temp gauge , new thermostat , check water pump , the original thermostat was broken and locked in full open , l used the carb from the 04 as the 03 had a broken spring on the flapper for the choke

the bike came with a pro circuit pipe and muffler smaller diameter then the big mouth l had on the 04 model , l left it on , the carbs were uncorked on both bikes and my 03 had 175 mains my 04 had 178 mains and correct pilots , l used the 04 carb as the anti back fire flapper had a broken spring
lt also came with a different stator and regulator not sure if its just ac or both ac/ dc , no battery or compastor , the coils on the the stator has full coils unlike the 03 original unit

All propper offroad tyres wear fast on normal roads , if you want longlasting tyres try some dualsport tyres , like the TKC80 or http://www.reifenwerk-heidenau.de/modules/reifenliste/view.php?point=5&rtyp=17&profil=101&pic=107 ,

Bike looks good so you have my permission to post more pictures .  Smile
