Xl600 engine swap

Recommended Posts

I have a 94 XR650L motor/frame. My daily rider is a 86 XL600 with new plastic and clark 4-gl tank, bike runs good (starts on third kick). Is it possible or worthwhile to put the 650 motor in my XL? I could build the XR but it needs a lot of lovin to get it on the road. Both bikes are titled for the road.

I need the magic button, I have bad knees that are gettin worse with age. Just wanted to know if it was do-able.

Yes it is, in fact I saw a picture of one here a guy did, and till he mentioned it, you would never have known. I think he did a little rework of the mounts, but no frame mods if memory serves.

Use your XL600 head and carbs on the 650 motor. That way you get the magic button and keep the power and response of the dual carbs. Use the XL header since it flows better. If you search it has been done.
