    Yes, a manual is on order. Thanks for the input. I was thinking the cyclops bulb is the way to go.

    New to xr600 electrical help

    So I have done further research and picking around the bike and answered some of my own questions. The wiring appears to be from a Baja design kit, as the colors match their wiring diagram on their website for their general kick start kit and there are various BD parts. Then for whatever reason someone put on acerbis lights front and rear. The stator only had 3wires coming off, so I'm assuming it had stock stator. I guess what I need to do now is find the led light I want, hook it up, turn it on, them make sure I'm getting enough voltage to charge the battery. If I'm not getting enough juice, I need to rewind. Does that sound about right?
  4. Hello, I just picked up a 96 xr600 this weekend! After riding home with the sun going down, I quickly realized I wanted more headlight. I believe it has the acerbis dhh halogen headlight and just isn't enough. So then my research lead me LED replacements and AC and DC circuits and stators and all that good stuff. I think I have a general understanding of it all, But just a few questions. Looking in the airbox, is that silver thing with fins the rectifier? It has Baja designs logo on it. What's the black box just forward of the silver one? I notice there is a battery, the previous owner didn't even know it had a battery (he didn't have the bike real long) where do I get a battery pack like that? How do I know if someone put in a rewound stator? Anything else I should know about this before I start changing lights out? Additionally, the bike has an FCR carb. It is mounted in the bike crooked (top towards left hand side of bike) because the frame is in the way. Is that proper? Or are there different manifolds I can use to get it straight up and down. Thanks for your help Jeremy
  5. hello. So last time i went riding i noticed there was oil on my right boot. So i drove back to the truck, loaded up and went home. Anyways, so i checked it out and noticed there were two little holes in my clutch cover. One at the top left corner of the Y and one at the bottom right corner of the last A in yamaha. It looks like the letters were bulged out also? Is this common? im obviously gonna take a look inside when i get a chance to make sure everything in there is ok. but if everything looks ok, and i just replace the cover, is this going to happen again? Thanks

    "Blind Jump" Questions

    i think downhill jumps were the hardest for me to get my confidence up in......once i actually did one, it seemed easier to do than most jumps, but you are going a hell of a lot faster especially with gravity pulling you into the landing
