    Hi if you after a bit of security in regaurd to someone nicking you xr when I had my one I just drilled a hole in the air box and fitted a push in switch from dick smiths which was out of sight worked so well it would fool me sometimes then a padlock on the back disc I always found what do you do with your gear more of a problem??? I think adventure rides just have to figure everyones going to be friendly and honest and till to date I have never had a problem. I miss my xr600

    Well done Johnny, that looks like Colmans on K Rd
    Here for a good time, not necessarily a long time

    Yeah look nice those wheels - should be able to put my new motard wheels on my XR600 on the weekend after a slight hitch last weekend (had to take front one to engineers to get bored out a little). Now all good to go - can't wait to get the mean machine going.

    Well this is a 650 thread after all...

    Anybody want to buy some wheels? I got them both on today but found the back one is not quite lining up on the sprocket side. If a put a spacer in there the disk won't line up (by about 3mm). Also can't seem to get the front calipers on - my old disk was a little worn and just can't get the space wide enough to get over the new disk (both 4mm but the old one was worn nearer to 3 - do I have to take the calipers apart or let out the fluid?)

    I've got so frustrated I've wasted 2 Saturdays on this I've put the wheels on TradeMe here. See pics of the bike on my other thread

    Stick a clean screwdriver in between the pads and lever them apart.
    Makes it a lot easier.
    Make sure you pump the brakes a few times before using them for an emergency stop

    Yeah tried the screwdriver trick but still not happening - probably next time I get a chance to work on it will go straight in - just how it goes sometimes I guess.

    Undoing the caliper bleed nipple first, may help.
