    Xr600r motor in a 400ex

    Thanks for the info. I bought an XR because it was a good deal and not having intentions of riding. Thought I would clean it up a little and resell but its still in the garage

    Did you have any issues with the kick start hitting the frame or footpeg? How did it do in the sand? Probably rips pretty good.

    Do you have any pictures of how you did the gas tank to clear the head?

    FNG needs help

    Thanks for the help. I was planning on leaving it off, I couldn't even find a tab to put the rubber onto anyways. I'm sure I'll have more questions the further I get into this rebuild.

    FNG needs help

    Well I checked the VIN and receipts that came with the bike. Turns out its a 1988 with a 1989 bottom end. Did the XR600r have a oil separator in 1988? From the pictures I found on the net its suppose to hook on the left side on frame beside the carb. Is that right? My rear shock reservoir is mounted there and I don't even see a place for the separator to hook? Still confused.

    Thanks, I don't have it. So, I'm guessin' he did take it off.

    Bought a basket case 1989 XR600R and I can't figure out were this rubber part goes. Any help?

    440 big bore kit care

    I have a 2000 400ex that I put a 440 big bore in. I put the big bore probably 6 months after buying it brand new. I've never had to tear it back down to fix anything. I don't race, I'm just a weekend warrior. Mainly do dune riding, trail riding and the occasional track. I have air shrouds, added an extra oil cooler, added a larger oil tank and only run 110 octane. I use Honda oil and change it after every 5 rides. Its going on 13 years and it still starts and runs good, I finally had a shop do a leak down test and they said everything looked good. Anything you can do to keep it from getting to hot is good. I think that's why mine lasted so long.
