Recently sold my 01' XR650R and decided to keep my XR600R that I rebuilt last year.

Got old man piggy 200w of light today.

Not quite as snappy as younger brother XR650R, but freshly rebuilt last winter. I have a soft spot in my heart for this bike. Now all it needs are some USD forks.

I bought the XR600R last year, split the cost with my brother. We keep it in Utah, when he comes out, he has something to ride. I completely rebuilt it, valves, tranny, etc, etc. So it's essentially "like new". After buying a KTM 450xc, something had to go, so I kept the bike that I've seen every part on and know every nook and cranny.

It's fairly safe to say I haven't experienced that. . . :p

I hate mud and that stuff was slick!

It's so nice! :excuseme:

What front fender did you put on it?

Is it the original XR shape? Did you cut/modify it somehow?

Thanks :-)

Hi...Im a newb here! posting from Central America, here in El Salvador!

Just rebuilt this 1988 xr600r to stock specs. Still have some tinkering to do like brakes, tires, maintenance, but almost everything is new inside.

Thanks!
