Xl600 carbs

Recommended Posts

Hi, newbie to forum and looking for help and advice. I have picked up a cheap dual carb for my xl600r. The model on the carb is PH 61A and I was wondering if anyone knew what year they were from. I have done a little research and found there were quite few carb models for these bikes. Is this model 28 or 30mm? Also it came with 55 pilot 102 primary and 130 secondary jetting. This doesn't appear to be correct from what I've read and could anyone give me thoughts on standard jetting for this model. Thanks

You should do a search of this website as well as the many other sites that have covered this topic, the standard jetting for the model will be on a parts fische and a workshop manual which should be considered critical due to complexity of the xl600r versus your run of the mill 2t dirtbike. Dont start a new thread unless what youre asking for either an odd request about why your decomp system isn't working and you've extinguished all of your own ingenuity or you have new info about where you can do x or buy y to share.

 

Jetting has been talked to death and any insights especially on a popular bike such as the xl600r has been already been said somewhere. By asking a new thread you risk getting highly one sided info about one person particular bike.

Without much more than two quick searches on google i was able to quickly get all this info

 

From what I recall with my friends bike is you should leave the pilot be I think its a 55 and big carb is a 130 and small carb is a 120 or so . The key is to clean lightly and rebuild the carb though thats what makes the bike run sweet. If the bike is stock go up at most 1 size on any of the jets unless you live in an especially odd area where is really cold.
