info on '83 XL600R motor mods?

Recommended Posts

I just bought a nice condition '83 Honda XL600R. It runs fine with 7400 miles on it original. But I was wondering what type of motor mods are availible to make this bike just slighty stronger? Is there bigger cams and higher compression piston kits availible? Is there a over size bore kit? I am looking for something just slightly more powerful than stock. If anyone knows of anywhere I can find these aftermarket parts I would be grateful. Eddie Kinney

I had an 83 that I put 15000 miles on,(mostly dirt). I never did anything to the engine other than Jets, Opened up the airbox a little. UNI filter a supertrap E.A.R. slip on. Better bars, Acerbis hand Guards, Clarke tank, 90/10

DOT tires (Pirelli), replaced the fenders. That's about it. Great bikes.

I have a friend back in PA. that has the same year, he put on an XR swingarm and rear wheel. And a CR fork and triple tree. They make a great dual sport or commuter bikes. :)

Someone mentioned (Al Bakers XRs only) as a source for aftermarket parts, good place to start, also try THUMPER RACING.
