Help Please.


Just got a 87 xr600l.

Great bike!!

A couple of quick questions, it seems to run hot, do these bikes generally run hot? Water boils on contact with the valve cover!!

The forks make a click click sound when they are extended and then pushed in. I don't think its the head bearing loose. Seems like its only at the top of thier travel. Sounds like a rattle ofer bumpy ground.

Any good sites to explain carb adjustment/setup for these bikes?


Ride safe,


I would think any air cooled bike would run hot enough to have water dance on it.:excuseme:

came lean from factory.
