Just Bolted them on, waiting on a good weather day to try them out.

What did you do to make the 600R side panel fit?

Very nice L BTW.

Hey all--

Haven't been here for a while, and for good reason. Been looking for a certain ride and finally found it: '97 600R, very clean, has a Wiseco piston and has been bored, but the guy wasn't too sure how far. Said it was the "first stage" piston, so I'm assuming it's probably just a .020 or .030 over. Also has a Hot Cam and Supertrapp exhaust. I'm really tickled with it so far, with the obvious exception of a slightly sore right leg. It's my first big single; I've ridden all sorts of stuff but never owned anything past a 400. Got a quick (cold) ride on 'er yesterday afternoon and the torque is absolutely amazing. Thanks a ton to Old Cooter for the help and advice in buyin' 'er!

Apparently I'm not allowed to post pictures, so maybe this link will work:

Looking forward to a lot of fun and long time with this bike!

Those pics are so damn cool. I can't wait to get mine in the water. I have some great creeks and rivers to run in, sand bars, deep holes.....big fun. Last time I was in 'em, I was about 28 years old and on an '82 250R 3-wheeler. Maybe I've found the fountain of youth. I know I've found the fountain of "sore right leg" after tryin' to get the pig runnin' this afternoon. Damn.

How long have you had that tank on the R? It doesn't look yellowed at all.

      Hi everyone I just purchased a 1986 XL600r that was running ok when I bought it two days ago, but would bog down around 1/4 throttle. I drove it around some yesterday staying off the throttle, and she did fine , but not running quite right.  At one point after shutting her down in town, had a real hard time (10 minutes) trying to restart her. I finally got her started and got her home. I tried to fire her up the next day in order to try and tune the carb for the altitude Im at. 
      Long story short, she just wouldnt start (wheras before it was very easy to start) - almost like she wasnt getting spark. Well I pulled the plug wire boot and the wire was completely disconnected from the coil! I figured this wire having been super loose while riding was likely the poor throttle issue I was having. Well reconnected to the plug wire to what I think was the coil, then pulled the plug to check that it was super black and sooty. I replaced with a new plug and.... still nothing. Not even close to turning over.
      Whats going on here? My next step is replacing the ignition coil and wire with a new one, but anything else I'm missing here? Thanks.
      edit: this bike had a new stator installed last summer.

      How the hell are you supposed to get that thing out? I bought that overpriced motion pro tool, tried heating it and soaking it, and it still will not move a millimeter. Do I have to use an impact driver, or do I have to drill the peening out? Can I reuse the retainer once it is out? Can I just loctite it back in later, or should I re-peen it?

      This bike has only 249 original miles - is OEM including 1994 red, white, and blue color scheme, bike was garaged and covered and only ridden a few miles a year as it was NOOP registered for past 18 years - bike is street registered now, transferred from family, clean title. Only updates are new D606 tires, battery, and all fluids, etc changed.  Bike is in excellent condition and runs even better; includes original tool kit too!

      I'm looking to convert my xr650r to full DC power and was wondering if anyone here was using a terminal bus bar ? something like this one : https://www.amazon.com/DSC-TB01-Terminal-Block-Splits-Input/dp/B005K49NMW/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1510464051&sr=8-2&keywords=bus+bar&dpID=310kVzto9uL&preST=_QL70_&dpSrc=srch
      I'm looking to make the wiring a bit more simplified if possible, and have a single organized place like this that everything can connect to and run to battery would be incredibly useful.
      Thoughts ? Suggestions ?
