I wanted a smaller tank than the 4.3 clark that I got it with. The R tank mounts differently. Basically it requires cutting off the pins that hold the rubber donuts and welding on new threaded mounts. I think I (my bro, really) used some 7/16 bolts drilled and tapped. I will try and get some pics. Not hard if you have a welder (or know someone who does :thumbsup:)!

What all are you missing? Turn signals and a brake/tail light are what I'm seeing in the pics. If you just need a couple things like that, it would be much cheaper sourcing parts than buying the BD kit.

Nice find, by the way! :smirk:

Looks good. Also mirrors and maybe horn? Not sure where you live, but there appears to be a complete XL 600r being parted out in Seattle's Craigslist.

Also, I wonder what changed on your stock exhaust- looks like someone pulled the guts out and inserted a tail piece- very loud? interesting...

thanks!

its missing quite a bit, all signals, brake light, ignition was punched (not stolen i checked the vin) kill switch, mirrors, brake sensor, indicator? box next to the speedometer, front light fairing and light mounts are broken... probably even more when i get into it...

if i do chose the BD kit, is the wiring simple, like one power cable to battery and ground? they obviously dont make a kit for the xl600 but i found one for the xr600 that would probably be my best bet... i emailed them a week ago with no response.

      I have quite a few things I need to thin out of my shop. Prices are for items only. Shipping extra. Please Pay attention to my shipping policy:

      I ship twice per month. When you inquire about an item, I will tell you when the next ship date is. It takes a couple of hours out of my day to get things to the shipping outlet so I will ship as many items as possible at once. If you don't like this, don't buy my items or be willing to pay extra for special accommodations. I will be as reasonable as possible.

      I will combine/box multiple items to save you as much as possible on shipping. Prices are OBO, but I am not going to take the time to box something up for nearly nothing. I have a very demanding work load this fall.

      It will take me a few days to have pictures up on all this stuff.

      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.
