It's Scott Summers old bike so I'm assuming he had one of his boys do it. I've heard XR's only used to do it too, not sure though? :thumbsup:

Dude, that is a SWEET bike. Plus, your buddies' XR's are pretty sweet as well. I bet that thing is fun to carve around the streets of italy. I wish I woulda known about that when I was over there last summer; I would have LOVED to take a look at that thing. If I venture over that way in the future, it would be appreciated if I could check it out.

Not a good photo, but it's not about how good the photo is.

Let's see a pic of that scooter in behind.

Don't knock the scooter. . . it's got less chicken strips than the CBR600RR behind it!

I bet. I love scooters.

      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.
