Hi, I was amazed i had no replies on my last post so i'm gonna try again, someone must have some input on this. I'm doing some rejigging on one of my XL600R's to improve it for road use only and wondered if anyone has been here before, i did search the forums but haven't found precise answers. I've stripped the bike right down to the frame and i'm having it powder coated, i'm then going to fit a late XR400 rear shock with Xr600 (1999 model) forks with progressive springs, leave the airbox off completely and fit 2 50mm cone air filters. I'm thinking of chopping a few inches from the back of the frame to shorten it slightly and leave the carring rack off then fitting new rear mudguard (KTM style). I know i'm probably looking at the need to re-jet the carbs, so i'll replace the exhaust while i'm rebuilding, probably a FMF unit but was wondering if there was a shorter alternative on the market?? Has anyone done any of these before and did they work/not work? Thanks for any input on this.
