Here is my '07 XR650R blacked out.....except the seat. I think I kinda like the little bit on "Honda Red" left on the bike.

Hi All

Thought I would post a pic of my bike XR 600 R 1996, wet and cold here in Wales UK.

Hi All.

Been bored over here in Wales, feel rough, weather been rougher, so thought I would have a play with my bike.

See if you think it looks better or not?? I have got to re do the side pannels with some new red backgrounds.

Hi Thumpnred which USD front end have you used? I found it quite easy after I found some one to do some machining for me.

Hi Silver City.

Thanks for that, I must admit I have tried a few newer bikes and I still prefer the motor in the old XR, lovely torque.

i keep switching back and forth between the pictures and the fenders and forks and the whole graphics kit really sets it off. that bike looks more like a CRF which in my opinion is bad a**. i can honestly say i have not seen another one like that. well i have but it just didn't "flow" like your bike

I have been thinking of getting a CRF sub frame, seat, pannels and air box and grafting that on my XR, but I think it might be going to far, mine is a 96 the same as yours and it was almost the same when I first got it.

I prefer riding it than playing with it, bit like a good woman :thumbsup:

      so today I was going to go out for a ride, almost got to my buddies house, when the bike died, thought it was maybe out of gas, so i pulled in the clutch and went on reserve. I was still rolling so i popped it up into 3rd to try to roll start it, but no luck. stopped and pulled of to the side to try and kick it. the engine was siezed. this had happened before once and it ran fine after i let it cool down. so i let it sit and got a cup of coffee. i came back out to start her up, but i couldnt find tdc. the kick start would turn and turn but no hard point. it was harder to kick through the cycles and it has a weird squeek sound from the cylinder. any ideas on what happened or what the problem is??? it was running just fine 2 weeks ago i took it out on a 6 hr ride no overheating nothing. i has just been out of service because i cracked the tank in a biff about 3 rides ago.

      Hi all, long time stalker first time poster.
      Had my xr600r a few years now brought it with everything done lucky. 
      Anyway it has sat in the shed for 3 or so years regoed and ready to 
      Roll just to lazy to get my Lience. Now have it and I'm riding it to work 
      Everyday saving ks on the car doing about 200 250 km a week, 
      Loving the bike hasn't missed a beat but doing 80% of that 
      Highway I want to set up for 100% road. 
      I have picked up a set of cbr600 rims done some maching on them
      Got them to start fitting and taking shape but gave up on the idea
      Now I have my Lience it's back on. 
       
      Has anyone on here done it? how much work is realy involved? Is the
      Juice worth the squeeze?? Ect ect. Send in your pics cbr rims or not
      show me your rigs!!  I will have plenty more questions to ask you all that have
       Cheers.

      I'm getting down to the end of working on a nearly bolt on EFI conversion for my xr650l (and maybe yours too!)
      Our bikes only came with crank sensors so have provisions for mounting them, nbd.
      Cam sensors on the other hand...
      I believe I can use what appears to be a very convient casting in the valve cover that with a little milling should accomadate a standard sensor. It lines up almost perfectly with the camshaft. I've already found that there is some variance in how Honda cast these bosses, ie: with or without holes in them. Doesn't matter though, just a few more chips left on the table after the machine work.
      So what I could use are few quick measurements to make sure this works.
      Need inner and outer diameter of the two bosses(red and blue) as well as the center to center distance of the two.

      Hey all, after a busy summer of school and work I've finally carved out some time to replace my busted countershaft. After reviewing several threads about the kickstart addition, I decided this would be my chance to have a kickstart/easy button combo bike. Luckily enough I found a '95 XR600R basket case with a blown head but very useable bottom end with all the kicker bits I need!
      Pulled out the engine last night and now I need a little bit of sagely advice from the wise folks here at TT:
      First, I need a gasket set for the rebuild, will Winderosa/Mooseracing be okay, or should I only put in OEM gaskets? Also, I'll be splitting both cases this week to get all the parts out and begin putting them in the L, but is there anything specifically I should be looking out for when inspecting the donor parts? Any tips on splitting the cases in general? Finally, I know there's been a handful of people who have done this mod, and I know everything fits into place in the L bottom end nicely, but has anyone had any strange issues? This bike will be carrying myself and some gear to Baja this winter for ~3 weeks and it needs to be dead reliable, or at least as reliable as it was last year in baja.
      Thanks to everyone on the boards who has helped me out thus far, the kickstart add on threads are very helpful! I should say, this is my first complete tear down so any advice/tips are very welcome!
      Here's a pic of the engines out on bench:
