  1. Thanks for inputs...
  2. Need a set for my '84 as mine are worn and I believe causing my top-end noise. Surfaces have grooves worn in them where they contact the cam. Anyone have some sitting around or a good source?
  3. I'm looking for the following parts. Parts from a 350 and/or an XR should work as well, up through at least '86. ***NEED*** -Regulator -Rectifier/Regulator -Horn -Battery Hinge (bracket to hold battery in place) ***WANT*** -Compression Release Cable (from motor to kickstarter) -Toolbox w/ tools -Turn signals (Front/Rear) Thanks, Adam

  5. drmark may disagree, but I have had issues with carpal tunnel in my left wrist and through good chiropractic care along with related physical therapy it has been completely alleviated. I'm a firm believer that carpal tunnel and other similar issues can be resolved through good PT measures. From my experince, CT issues maily result from neck/shoulder issues that then transmit down your arm(s) to elbow and wrists. PT can take longer, but IMHO is a much better solution.
  6. I'm looking to get some parts for my '84 and need some input on what may or may not be interchageable with and '85 XL600, as I know someone with parts available from the '85. here's what I need: ignition switch w/ key and mounting bracket compression release cable (goes to kickstarter) foot pegs (fron right side and both rear) AC Regulator License Plate Bracket Blinker relay Thanks, Adam

  8. What I've found out so far for AZ is that I need to do a record search, vehicle inspection, and then if nobody shows up on the record search, I'll need to go through getting a bonded title. I'm thinking that once I call the police and make sure it's not stolen, I may go through the its-titles.com thing. I'm thinking I will be beter off to get a regular title rather than a bonded one?
  9. OK, I did a VIN # search with Carfax and Autocheck.com (the free versions- jsut says if any records for your vehicle are found). For both of them, they correctly identify my bike as an '84. Autocheck reports it as an '84 Honda Dual-Sport. Both report zero records found for the bike, so I would venture a guess that it has not been registered any time in the past few years. So far so good...
  10. Thanks dirtbikr. My VIN# is JH2MD1114EK0*****, so I think it's an '84 rather than an '85.
  11. Thanks originaldirt. It does have a clearly legible, untampered with number stamped on the steering head, it's the ID plate found on the opposite side of the head that is missing. I'll check on the VIN with the police and go from there. Thanks for the info.
  12. Go ahead and call me foolish to get it over with... So, my new bike, '85 XL250R had a missing/lost title when I bought it. I got a good enough price that($650) for a bike in excellent condition, in my mind, justified the potential headaches of getting it titled in AZ. So I've now found out that I'll have to do a vehicle inspection, then a Motor Vehicles Record Search (that goes back three years), send registered letter to last known owners (if any turn up) and try to get title or Power of Attorney to release ownership. If nothing turns up, I'll need to get a Bonded Title. Again, all this sound doable to this point. So now I'm reading my new Clymer manual and discover there should be an ID plate from Honda on the stem identifying the make, model, year, etc. I'm not clear at this point if this plate has the VIN#, or is the VIN# stamped on the frame (on other side of stem) and the plate has some other ID #. Regardless, this plate, which is riveted on, is completely missing from the bike, though the rivets are still there. So, will this plate being gone cause a major headache for me? Anyone have any experiences with something like this? Thanks for you inputs. Adam
  13. very nice!
  14. Thanks for the tips, starmoto. I'm in Phoenix AZ, so I'm sure I need to do all I can to keep it cool.
  15. Picked up an '85 XL250R today, appears to be in great shape mechanically and cosmetically, paid $650. A previous owner strippped most road equipment (speedo cluster, lights, etc), and I'd like to replace it to get it street-legal again. Also looking for any general suggestions on this bike, am new to all of this. Thanks! Adam
