    Ok. That's interesting. Maybe a 2 shot mold. I'm always amazed with how molds are designed and what is possible to manufacture with them.

    I would assume they tried to vulcanize the 2 pieces together and it didn't get got enough?

    Re: NEW PROJECT! 1994 Honda XR600R Supermoto

    I have been making some progress on this. I ended up replicating the battery pack that was in it since I knew it worked.



    My bench is a mess, I have about 5 projects going on right now, but 10 1.2V nicads will give you 12V



    My son helping clean those nice Excel wheels!



    wiring rats nest before



    Cut out the corroded plug and bullet connectors





    And after with soldered wires



    Everything is wired, parking lights, blinkers, brake lights all front and rear work, high low beam headlight, horn all work. (Well, waiting on a blinker relay to arrive so they actually blink, but they do turn on properly)

    But I never found a home for these orange and white wires out of the stock harness..... Any thoughts?





    Got the carb cleaned, it was full of yellow lacquer and some dirt, but overall not clogged like some carbs I have seen.



    SO MUCH YELLOW



    And here is the spark plug WITH NO SPARK (I feel like I've been here before......)



    I believe I have the killswitch wires backwards, I believe have B/W on the bike to B/W on the switch and Bu/W on the switch to ground. It should be Bu/W on the switch on B/W on the harness and B/W on the switch to ground....

    If I can get it to fire all I have left is to bleed the brakes and shes out the door!

    So “muck” yellow agree though; it doesn’t look too bad

    Loose Wiring; Idk.

    Glad to see new cleaned up wiring and battery go in to freshen things up. Did you make the battery or buy?

    Good to see the little one growing up working on bikes! He will never forget

    Vaya con dios with the spark hopefully it’s just reversed wiring

    Thanks man!!! I did make the battery pack since I had the nicads for RC already and they matched what was in there before.

    Im glad to have his help and iot is good training for him to work on his own bike!!!!

    got the blinker module installed and now the blinkers work!!!

    Pulled the carb again and saw I installed the float wrong, got that corrected and the bowl now fills with fuel!!

    Tried kicking a bunch and no start still, pulled the plug and dry as a bone....

    Yes, I have spark.

    With compression off, I kick till it builds peak pressure, I think pull in the compression lever and kick hard. Not even a cough. Brand new plug in it and it is dry as a bone. I cleaned the carb thoroughly, but it isn't getting fuel into the cylinder. I am choking it as well. Tried a shot of starter fluid before I kicked as well.

    Might I suggest not doing that then?

    Made that bad decision a couple of times on my YZ450 which started relatively easy. Still wasn't a good decision.

    What was the sequence ?

    Also ... Try to remember it on a hot day after doing 80 miles of riding in Maine while uphill and after picking up the bike the 20th time. ...

    kick it over to top dead center, pull the compression lever and kick one click, release the lever, and kick like a mule.

    It's funny, I had a moto buddy stop by last night and he used to have a 426 and he said the exact same thing!!!!! We both took a few laps in the dark on it! The new headlight is AWESOME! SO bright.

    I'm still thinking your jet might be too constricting.....

    I see some guys kicking over an xr650r barefoot with the right setup

    Nah man, maybe Im just a baby about kicking it. No way I could do it barefoot!

    It starts with maybe 4 kicks and idles PERFECT and runs like a champ. I thought I was gonna have to fiddle with the carb more, but I'm not touching a thing.

    Bringing it back to the owner this weekend, sad to see it go, wish it was mine, but it will be nice having the garage space back since it is getting to be snowmobile season. I might be doing a complete top end in my sled next....

    If someone is barefoot kicking an XR650R, that poor thing must be sooooo far down on compression.
