Keep very good fresh synthetic oil in that motor change the oil filter for a stainless steel one. Then ride it a lot and have fun. There are so very many good pipes with the XR-600 it seems the louder they are the better they perform too. I'd try an Apovoric on it and see if you can't get it hitting closer to what you own. They are very reliable and make a awesome mountain goat. prairiedawg :):p:)
