    It runs great! I haven't figured out if I like the bars or not, I just threw them on to try them... Because the stem was custom made to make it fit, the nut is in the way of the stock bars so I use some old risers and fliped the bars... I'm going to run them a while then try some drag bars, then maybe some with a little rise to them... Not totaly redneck, just not into all the bling, bling... and not competing with the Jones'... I build what I ride & I ride what I build... At least I'm not bitchin about what exhaust is or isn't gay, I wouldn't know... Seen my other bikes? Look in my photo albums here: http://home.bellsouth.net/personalpages/scripts/community.dll?ep=16&ext=1&groupid=3192&ck=&ver=3.0 If I have to explain, you won't undestand!

    This is for all you that talk about all those mods you do... All the money you spend... I mod my own, weld my own, wrench my own... I laugh when I think how much I saved and still out there tearing it up... Traded some welding work for the bike. 84 XL600R... Put $40 in a pulse generator, put the front-end & wheels I had here that I got free a while back... and $20 in paint... That is a total of $60 & some work... The Frankenthumper:

    1st ride... It's a dog

    Haven't done a compression check, But from the kicker feel, it is good... way more than my triumph... it requires use of the decompression lever. Tuning carbs shouldn't be a problem... I've done banks of 4 carbs on the old SOHC CB750 and other 4 cyl bikes... Basically asking if there are any tips/tricks specific to this bike? Or if the tried & true stuff that is universal is it...

    1st ride... It's a dog

    Got the 84 XL600R running and took it for a ride yesterday... DOGGY! esspecially on the top-end... I took the carbs apart for a good cleaning and everything looked good, I didn't note the jet sizes or the location of the clips on the needles (dumass) It has the stock exhaust that rattles... stuff broken off inside... I'm cheap, but looking for a Supertrapp & a K&N filter... If the carbs are rich & causing the doggyness, that may help... any oldtimes around with experience on the older 2 carb models know any other stuff to wake this one up?

    I have aquired a 194 XL600R

    Thanks guys... The bike is fair... no back fender... I have an old pick-up tool box laying here, so I cut some diamond plate out & bent a fender... The front-end needed rebuilt, but I happened to have a inverted one from a 02 RM125 that was modified by RG-3 so it is now on it... Currently has steet tires/wheels for motard I'm not going to run a front fender
  8. it needed a pulse generator to get it running... Anyway, now that I know it runs, what are some cheap upgrades? I plan on ditching the stock airbox for a K&N pod and a universal slip on Supertrapp... is the stock dual carb system good?
