1983 xl600r cam rocker replacement

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

just wondering if someone can tell me if 87 xl600r engine parts are compatible with the 83 xl600r? ( specifically the rocker arms for the intake and outake valves)

I would say yes. Although they differed in how the manual decompressor functioned--the '83 had a 5th valve that opened and let compression escape whereas the '87 opened the right exhaust valve to accomplish the same. I thought that particular  rocker might be different but looking at Cheap Cycle Parts online diagrams, there appears to be no difference.
