MX, your bike looks great too. My 600R is a 95'. I decided to keep the stock header and shield and run the Supertrapp IDS2 it came to me with. I repaired the Supertrapp and repacked it. Got my handguards on and tomorrow hopefully get my black excel Rim back on front. changed back over to CR HIGH bars from the Henry/Reed bend and man this things is a serious dirt contender. I don't like the Sedona tire on the rear, so I'm going to put my Tractionator on it ASAP.

. Your bike is the way that I remembered on how the XR600's were back when I was only dreaming of one. I recently just sold My 1985 600 and it was a dual sport like my XR650R is but I actually found myself wanting to ride the good ole 600 more often because for one I could thrash it but it was just a simple thumper with nothing to worry about but an occasional chain tension and is my oil full. The 600's sit a bit lower as well, and that aided in some feet swingin hill climbs for Me. Mine had the stock header with a super trap as well

 New tank and graphics installed. Got another foot of powder last night though so I am still a few weeks out from hitting any trails locally.

 Thanks man! Its been a fun winter build so far .... she's got a fresh OEM top end rebuild and a Dot-Com jetted '08 CRF450R FCR as well now. =)

 

Getting a XR600R street plated up here is impossible not to mention the XR600R is a pretty rare find up these ways to begin with. I figured why not build my own .... that way I get a street and trail with the look I wanted and the magic button. Haha.

I've just purchased a pristine 1993 XR600R. Less than 5000 miles on it. The previous owner replaced the rear coil with one from Eibach and he also installed a rear lowering link kit and shorter fork springs as well and added a 15 42 Gear setup for better highway speeds. Other mods include trailtech speedo, 5" round headlight, supermoto style plastics, clark tank, LED brake light and signals, DG muffler.

CRF 450 forks with CRF250R triples/stem and All Balls racing bearing conversion kit.

I was going to do this to my XR650R. I have a few more questions, how much did you spend, Recommendations on where to find, are you now running a CRF450 front caliper and wheel and do You know if that set up also fits the XR650R? Thank You!

      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.
