Read the below..Fact is any 600RFVC motor goes into any 600XR/XL or 650L frame..Attaching carbs to the various airboxes and whether the single or twins carbs fit to the frames is where the problems come in..None

of those are insurmountable problems in themselves,,a bit of this.. :thinking: ,,,and a bit of this,, :bonk:  generally works.

 

I'll always say anything can be made to fit with a bit of work,,

For a novice to XRs I would stick to the dual carb engines that bolt straight in without any hybridization. 83-87 XL600 and 85-87 XR600.
