  1. Hey guy's Let see your PIG's, I dont have much mods other than uncorked and street kit. But I have a long wish list. This pic is last weekend out on a ride near Midle River in New Brunswick. Denro
  2. So I recently bought an 85 XR600R. My 1st bike when I was 13 was a 79 XR 250 and loved it. Now I bought the best bike from a young kid who said it was running in his ad. Of course it wasn't when I went to look at it. But, the price was right after I talked him down a little. My son and I have replaced the CDI, plug, and coil pack ensuring it had a good spark. We cleaned the carb, adjusted floats (it's the duel carb set up) and discovered that the mixture screw was missing, which we replaced. My son managed to get it started a few times by relentlessly kicking it over because he's 15. Haha. It idled unpredictably and cut out mostly within a minute not to be started again until it cooled. It ran long enough once for me to ride it up and down the road a few times backfiring with almost every gear shift for about ten minutes tops. It seemed underpowered but was still able to lift the front wheel off the ground slightly during takeoff. Now I didn't tell you that I had bought a compression gage and checked it prior to all this. It was roughly 70psi which I was told by a coworker was plenty to get it started and ride on. With all the difficulty starting it I decided to check the Haynes Manuel that I have and check the actual compression spec which I should have done from the beginning. Now that I realize I'm at/under 1/2psi compression I'm doing a little research as to what to do now. I'm not a mechanic, but I've gotten my hands in there doing simple repairs and whatnot. If I have a manual I'm pretty much good to go, but a full motor rebuild is a little daunting. I have a good friend that is an auto mechanic that lives right down the street that just started getting into restoring bikes that is willing to help me out. My biggest concern is the availability of parts for this motor. I've seen some stuff here and there on the web, but I'm looking for any suggestions that can point me in the right direction. I Really LOVE this bike and would love to see it ressurected, but I'm afraid I'm going to get too deep in to my pocket to have it make sense. Any info or suggestions welcome!
  3. so today I was going to go out for a ride, almost got to my buddies house, when the bike died, thought it was maybe out of gas, so i pulled in the clutch and went on reserve. I was still rolling so i popped it up into 3rd to try to roll start it, but no luck. stopped and pulled of to the side to try and kick it. the engine was siezed. this had happened before once and it ran fine after i let it cool down. so i let it sit and got a cup of coffee. i came back out to start her up, but i couldnt find tdc. the kick start would turn and turn but no hard point. it was harder to kick through the cycles and it has a weird squeek sound from the cylinder. any ideas on what happened or what the problem is??? it was running just fine 2 weeks ago i took it out on a 6 hr ride no overheating nothing. i has just been out of service because i cracked the tank in a biff about 3 rides ago.
  4. Hi all, long time stalker first time poster. Had my xr600r a few years now brought it with everything done lucky. Anyway it has sat in the shed for 3 or so years regoed and ready to Roll just to lazy to get my Lience. Now have it and I'm riding it to work Everyday saving ks on the car doing about 200 250 km a week, Loving the bike hasn't missed a beat but doing 80% of that Highway I want to set up for 100% road. I have picked up a set of cbr600 rims done some maching on them Got them to start fitting and taking shape but gave up on the idea Now I have my Lience it's back on. Has anyone on here done it? how much work is realy involved? Is the Juice worth the squeeze?? Ect ect. Send in your pics cbr rims or not show me your rigs!! I will have plenty more questions to ask you all that have Cheers.
  5. I have a 1993 XR600R that has been dual sported. Top end was rebuilt about 1000 miles ago. I have a miss in the engine that begins as you accelerate after the engine is warm - about 5 to 10 minutes of riding. As I accelerate, the engine feels like it cuts out intermitantly . If I slow down it runs strong with no miss. I have rebuilt the carb and everything is to spec. Engine idles fine. New plug. Any ideas.
  6. Hey all, after a busy summer of school and work I've finally carved out some time to replace my busted countershaft. After reviewing several threads about the kickstart addition, I decided this would be my chance to have a kickstart/easy button combo bike. Luckily enough I found a '95 XR600R basket case with a blown head but very useable bottom end with all the kicker bits I need! Pulled out the engine last night and now I need a little bit of sagely advice from the wise folks here at TT: First, I need a gasket set for the rebuild, will Winderosa/Mooseracing be okay, or should I only put in OEM gaskets? Also, I'll be splitting both cases this week to get all the parts out and begin putting them in the L, but is there anything specifically I should be looking out for when inspecting the donor parts? Any tips on splitting the cases in general? Finally, I know there's been a handful of people who have done this mod, and I know everything fits into place in the L bottom end nicely, but has anyone had any strange issues? This bike will be carrying myself and some gear to Baja this winter for ~3 weeks and it needs to be dead reliable, or at least as reliable as it was last year in baja. Thanks to everyone on the boards who has helped me out thus far, the kickstart add on threads are very helpful! I should say, this is my first complete tear down so any advice/tips are very welcome! Here's a pic of the engines out on bench:
  7. Now for the fancy part. Our engineering group just bought a 3D printer so I made my own custom perfect fit adapter. It is solid plastic. I can't say for sure how well it is going to hold up but initial test are promising. Gasoline/ carb cleaner seem to have no affect on the plastic. It is winter here so I haven't got any real world field testing done. There are several differenet types of plastics that can be printed so I might want to try a few different prototypes. Anyone who wants the file, pm me and I will send it to you. If you know someone who has a 3D printer have them make you the part. We have the "Makerbot 2" it took 6-1/2 hours of printing time to make it solid. You will need to file off the lip of the carb in order to install the printed adapter. I used RTV sealant to glue it on. It's a snug fit, even without the RTV it's hard to get off the carb. I used DOT-COM's Jetting suggestions and it runs great. Thanks for all your hard work buddy! 158 main 45 pilot NCVT needle 3rd clip from the top leak jet is still stock - I think it is something like #65 Here is the total parts list and pricing. 2007 CRF250 FCR MX --- $130 Shipped - Ebay 2007 CRF250 Tusk throttle cables $14 -- Rockymountainatv FYI --- 4" longer than stock XR650L cables but will fit the XR650L housing.

Enjoy the new found power. *UPDATE* 5-1-14 A few members who have done this upgrade have reported that the gas tank was interfering with the top of the carburetor. Due to possible variations when buying a used carburetor or if you are using the stock tank or an aftermarket tank, this may be the case. It is very easy to remold or push in the area on the tank that is the problem. Firstly remove the tank from the bike and drain all the gas, leave the cap off and let it air out for a few days. Mark the area that needs clearance. This next step is very important, only use a heat gun to heat the plastic tank, this is the only safe way to gradually bring the plastic up to temp until it is soft enough to deform with some applied force (palm of your hand). Do this slowly moving the heat gun in small circles to gradually bring the area up to temp. I used a heavy pair of leather work gloves to push on the area I needed to deform. Once you get it to deform hold it there for a few minutes until it cools and sets. Put your tank back on and check the clearance repeat as needed. If you need more clearance and don't want to deform the tank additionally, you can cut a piece of 1/2" thick rubber and glue it to the rear rubber tank / frame bumper. This will raise the rear of the tank just enough to get the clearance you need. I am also still making the adapters for members who request them. If you want send me a PM and I will get back to you asap.
  8. Can anyone explain to me why the mid-pipe on certain XR600R/XR650L exhausts gets substantially bigger before attaching to the muffler? In most cases it is actually the same size as the muffler where it attaches. The XR's only mufflers are a great example of this and so is my White Brothers E series muffler. On the other hand you have the more traditional mid-pipe shape from companies like FMF for the same XR600R. The midpipe is relatively the same size from the header to the muffler connection. Even high performance street bikes use this approach so why is it different with the big single? I've been looking at replacing my White Brothers muffler lately because it doesn't have the discs nor the backing plate to make it USFS approved. I've been back and forth between the FMF Powercore 4 and the xr's only mufflers. I was wondering if the odd mid-pipe shape helps the XR's only mufflers flow better. From what I've read the XR's only mufflers are stupid loud and that would warrant a quiet insert for me and thus choking the high flow muffler, right? Also, for anyone wondering- the White Brothers header that was installed on my XR600R is VERY CLOSE to the same dimensions as an XR's only header at both the cylinder and mid-pipe connection.
  9. So I ordered .47 fork springs and 11.5 rear spring for my xr600r from XR's only. And I bought the race tech suspension bible. So far I can't find any talk about what people have done for shim stacks or other fork mods. I have ideas about what I think I should do but why experiment if there is a known good starting point. I revalved my ranger about 10 years ago and I remember finding a lot of info online to help me with a starting point. I'm 6'2 230lb. The bike is plush now but bottoms bad when I get in the whoops and I blew out the bearing for the rear shock last ride. Any tips or tricks ? I'm not that great of a rider and no suspension expert but I'm pretty sure it can be set up better for me. I hoped the race tech "bible" would have some info in it but it seems like more of a sales tool for the gold valves...
  10. Ok fella's After doing a lot of research and not finding all the answers in one place, I have compiled everything you need to know for fitting the FCR MX to an XR600. I have all the Part numbers, prices, and pics of the finished install. She runs like a rapped ape now, Hands down best mod I have done to the bike since the rebuild last year. With a little tug on the bars it will wheelie in 3rd with 14-45 gearing. Second gear wheelies come up a little too fast for comfort. Ok on too the Technical stuff. Step 1. Buy a good used FCR MX carb off of Ebay. I got a really clean one from a 2007 CRF250 for $130 shipped Try and find one with the throttle and cables, your XR600 throttle house and cables will not work. Step 2. You need a intake/insulator boot from a XR650L. Can be had on Ebay for about $30 shipped This angles the carb in and down so it clears the frame and the tank. Without it the carb will hit the frame and the tank. XR600 left XR650L right Step 3. Making the connection from the back of the carb to the Airbox. There is a about a 5/16" offset left to right from the carb and your airbox. You can connect this junction several ways. I initially used some plumbing supplies from the hardware store. About $4 in parts. Basically a 1-1/2" PVC coupler and 38mm flexible PVC rubber joiner. Cut to fit and hose clamp it all down. Not the best but the cheapest and most straight Forward. I don't think the NOSS adapter that is sold will work very well here because of the Side to side offset created when using the XR650L boot. The Noss adapter seems to account for a vertical offset.
  11. Hello All, I recently started a project where I purchased a 1987 Honda XL600R basket case. The engine required too much to repair it, so I purchased a 1987 XR600R solely for the engine. I have already mounted the XR engine into the XL frame, see the images below. This is not my first rodeo, plus I have an Electro-mechanical Engineering background. I am seeking advice from experienced persons that have done this engine swap in the past and what needs to be done that i might have overlooked. The engine is currently mounted, has spark and clean carbs installed. Need an o-ring that I ordered to button up the oil lines. Then I can fill with oil and gas to lit up the XR engine, which is basically stock at this point. Here's what I got and I think needs to be done: XR Motor with the XR Carbs Will be using stock XL airbox. Will be using stock XL exhaust system. Swap XR Stator with XL Stator. Will I need to swap the rotors too? Will need a new rear sprocket and chain. Any recommendations on the number of teeth I should use on the rear with this motor? Will be needing a set of new tires too. Any recommendations on tires for street, trail, and dirt riding? Any advice will be helpful and appreciated to help save me some time and this old girl back on the road sooner.
  12. Hello everybody. My 1987 XR600R is having a slight issue with not wanting to start once it has run a while. It also doesn't really like to idle once it is hot. I make sure it has enough oil in it every time I ride it. I really love this bike even though I haven't had it a while so I would really like to get it to run well for me. I know these twin carbs have an adjustment for the opening of them but I don't know how to mess with that to try to fix it. Any information would be helpful.

  14. So let me start by introducing myself, I'm shifty00 (I would tell you my real name but I don't trust the interwebs haha) am new to this forum. I am a welder/fabricator and I have decided to build something fun as a project. I got a Yamaha Warrior 350 for building my buddy a rack for his RZR. This thing was beat but it was free so whatever. Anyhow I went to drain the oil and found about 30lbs of magical pixy dust on the oil filter. I did manage to get it running but it was spewing smoke and didn't enjoy starting. long story short I decided it would be more fun to make a hybrid rather than dumping money into an already "Meh" engine. That leads me too my purchase of a 1993 XR600R engine on Craigslist. I looked it over, some things are missing but all and all it looks ok, it came with a carb and at the time I was skeptical about the carb because it just looked too damn busy for an xr motor. And now after knowing what that OEM carb looks like I know this is not at all an XR carb. It has features I wouldn't mind but I have no clue what it is or if it would even work on the motor. It is a CV and a pumper and has remote choke (dose not stay engaged, feels like a spring pulls it back closed?) Anyhow can someone please tell me what the heck it is... I can't find a single damn marking on it, so I assume its some china crap but I really don't know. here is a link the previous engine owner gave me after I txted him asking what the hell carb he gave me.... http://www.ebay.com/itm/262774188434 Also can anyone tell me if I will have oil starvation issues if it tilt the motor at a sharper angle than it would sit in the dirtbike frame? I figured dry sump would be very forgiving in that area but I worry about oil pooling to the front of the head and stuff like that. I will have about 1,000,000 questions but lets start here haha. Here is a pic of the infant stage of the build. (engine is just resting in there no mounts made yet). Thanks for any help with my Yamda/Honaha YFM600R...

    Ive got one xr600r carburetor that came off a perfectly running bike. Everything on it works and Ive cleaned it thoroughly inside and out. It comes with the XRs only choke plate and throttle cables in perfect shape. Asking $175 shipped Off the same bike I'm selling the E Series muffler. Some of the bolts holding the muffler cap are broke off, it's scratched a little, and it's missing all of the original supertrapp style plates. Sounds great though and doesn't look bad at all. Asking $100 I've also got a hammerhead holeshot device. Black, in decent shape. 50 dollars shipped takes it.

  17. After wanting one of these for many years, I finally got hold of one. They are not very common here in Norway, at least not plated ones. It was all blacked out when I got it, and on it's way to a slow death... Here is what it looked like when i brought it home: Took off some of the black stuff, and rode it around a bit this autumn to figure out what needed to be done to it. Luckily the engine seems solid, so I will leave that until next winter. The rest of the bike was in need of some TLC Got it in my garage and ready for tear-down (The homemade exhaust has to go....) Tear-down: And then: REBUILD! Got the frame back to Shasta White: Adding parts Some details Neken Handlebars, ARC Clutch lever, Titanium bolts etc Working on the electric system, and adding a battery, a key,and charger for the GPS etc Details: USB charging New headlamp and LED turn signals Testing out the LED lights This is my winter project, and I will update as I go along. The key is just to turn the battery off and to ground the kill swithch
  18. Hi y'all, I just bought an xr600r dual sport, 1995. I'd ridden it about 100 miles half street half dirt. After bringing it back from the desert I rode it to a local car wash and power washed it, but since then I've had issues with it wanting to keep running. It will start up fine, but I have to keep it wound up in order to keep it from dying, and it sputters when I give it gas. Sometimes it dies anyway with a big "POP" when I'm stopped, and after that it takes a while to start again. At first I thought I may have sprayed some water in my exhaust when cleaning it, even though I was careful not to get the sprayer too close. On the way home from the car wash I rode a few wheelies to try and purge it, but that didn't help. It didn't have that issue when riding to the car wash station, and didn't have that issue in the desert beforehand. Is there something else I could have sprayed with the washer that may have caused this? I don't smell gas or anything before or after riding it. Thanks in advance for the help!
  19. Remember this guy? https://youtu.be/nRCpPP_uRjc By the end of his career, he had switched from his dated XR to another machine, but I'm not sure exactly what it was or if it is still competitive. There's three interesting questions here - 1. what he competed with, and 2. where he could have gone with to compete, and 3. did he make the right choice?
  20. A couple of weeks ago my 94 XR600 bounced off my trailer. I still don't know exactly what went wrong - straps came off the trailer, not the bike. I've been using this setup for years. Anyway, the trailer is low to the ground but I was going near 50 mph when it happened. Watched the bike slide down the road and luckily miss other cars on the road. Damage as follows: - clutch lever gone... Completely - left side of handlebar is ground down - kickstand (New... Put original back on) - left footpeg (hammered out) - left side of frame scratched up - seat and plastic on left scratched - front fender scratched up It also looked like the forks were tweaked, but I can't tell for sure. I used Google goo to figure out how to straighten them when twisted, but haven't confirmed it worked. Going to replace everything tomorrow. Thoughts on what else to look for? I swear looking from the rear the left side of the frame is a hair higher than the right but is that a serious concern? Been a lurker for a long time. Other dirt bike is an 84 XR200 that runs like a champ.
  21. Doing a top end rebuild on a 1996 XR600 and was wondering if anyone could identify the manufacturer of this piston? I ask mostly out of curiousity. The bike had been previously well maintained but needed a valve job. Ultimately I decided on doing the whole top end whilst at it. Remarkably, the piston/cylinder seemed to be in excellent condition, and were properly measured at the machine shop within the 97mm stock specs. My question is does this look like an OEM piston? Very little marking on it, and I know someone else has been in the engine before me as the gaskets were cometic so it could be either an OEM or aftermarket. Any insight would be appreciated. Thanks!
  22. Hello, Let me start by saying a bit about myself. been reading this forum for a while (great info here) and finally got a bike for a decent price which appears to be in good condition. So I picked up (what appears to be) a gently used 1997 xr600r a few weeks ago. This is my first bike that I have ever owned/ridden aside form a few homemade minibikes. I think I have read through all these forums and watched a whole lot of videos, but I envision myself dumping the bike on my front lawn the first time I get going. So far I have gotten the kick procedure down, which surprises me since I have read how difficult it is to start. (one or two kicks, always starts when cold) I know the choke has been removed so maybe that helps? I have also been practicing finding the release point on the clutch, rolling the bike in first and practicing my braking (they seem pretty strong at low speed) One thing that I haven't gotten comfortable is keeping my right foot on the brake and relying only on my left foot to hold the bike if I do go over, but I haven't really been up at any speed to keep my foot up. I'm still a little hesitant to gas this thing as I have seen them take off at pretty incredible speeds and don't want the bike to come out from under me or spin the back tire around. Should I be this concerned? I guess the fear is that I will gas it a little and it will take off and in the process of falling backwards I will open the throttle even more and the bike will go over... is that a realistic fear? What is the most common way to drop the bike? turning? how to avoid? any advice would be helpful... and anything else I should know about this bike? thanks for your replies, I've learned a lot from this forum.
  23. Hi guys! Long time lurker, but I don't believe I've actually ever posted here prior to today. My XR journey began in December of 2013 when I picked up a gorgeous 99 XR650L from someone who was leaving the country the next day and absolutely needed it sold for rock-bottom price. I got hooked, and wanted more. My best friend bought an XR650R, but not wanting to deal with the extra weight and liquid cooling, I bought a CA street legal XR600R a month ago for $1500. It's a 95 in reasonably good nick, burns a bit of oil and the PO had never done any maintenance, so, among other things, I bought a UNI filter for it, which has been oiled and installed. I also had an FCR40 that I bought for my XRL, but when I bought this bike I decided to throw it on here since I plan on transitioning the L into more of a touring dual-sport and having this as my hardcore dirt machine. Also, this is my fifth bike- I have two YZF600Rs, one for commuting and one for the track, and a V-Strom 1000 for long-distance super-touring duty. I may be a bit of an addict. So, intros out of the way (nice to meet you all in advance!), I have this FCR carb. I cleaned it top to bottom, installed new jets as per the excellent "complete guide" thread here on TT (45/158, NCVT on the 3rd clip, starter and air jets left as they were (I think 72 and 100 is what their values were)), set the float height to 9mm (it was around 14 when I got it, carb came off a 2003 CRF450R), fashioned an adapter from PVC and rubber hose so I could mate it to the airbox, installed an XR650L insulator, and hoped to be good to go. The problem is, it won't idle unless the fuel screw is four turns out. Hmm, I thought to myself, the motor is (presumably) completely stock, so it shouldn't NEED a larger pilot, but we'll try it anyway. 48 goes in, no dice, still requires four turns, sputters and dies at 3.75. 50 goes in, same. I've tested up to a 55, and the bike STILL will not idle with the fuel screw set to fewer than four turns. Does anyone have any tips? The bike feels ok with a 45 in at four turns, it will pull hard at mid- and full-throttle, and it feels ever so slightly worse with a 55 in it, so I am pretty sure that the 45 is correct and there's something odd going on. To that point, when I replaced the stock fuel screw with an aftermarket one (for ease of turning), I found a tiny chunk of o-ring in the hole, which I extracted. Is it possible that there's a chunk of something in the tiny passage between the idle screw hole and the pilot jet hole? Any ideas would be GREATLY appreciated! I'm starting to tear my hair out over this... I don't want to put the stock carb back in, but if I can't get this FCR tuned up...
  24. When I found my 97 XRR I called my friend to check it out with me so he could tow it home for me on his trailer if I buy it. I bought it, we zoomed home and took turns ripping it up and down the dirt road behind my house. I was in love and he was hooked. He wanted one too. He had some more important things to deal with for a while but finally he tells me he is ready to look for one. We start checking Craigs list daily. Call and arrange to see a couple bikes that sell before we make it to see them. We keep watching Craigs list and one day I see it. 86 XR600R for sale. $750. Its been on Craigs list 20 minutes. The add says it ran last summer but didn't want to start this year. Also says it comes with an extra frame that can be titled. Hmmm... Extra frame that can be titled?? I don't get it but for this price were going to go check it out. We arrange to go see it. We hook up the trailer and hit the road for the 45 minute drive. Halfway there he texts saying he drained old gas, put in new and it started. He says he raised his price on Craigs list but since we are already on the way he will honor the original price for us. Sweet! We get there and there it is. Gold rims, dual carbs and one hell of an exciting project. Its a little rough but nothing we cant take care of....were hoping anyway. It starts easy and runs reasonably well other than an obviously dirty carb. Turns out what wasn't mentioned on Craigs list was the extra frame was necessary because it was stolen, recovered by police and returned. The thief ground the VIN number off the frame. The owner says he bought a new frame from Ebay for it but has never got around to switching everything over. He pulls the frame out of his garage and its white, not orange. I check the year. 1989. He says its close enough in years it will fit. I hope hes right. We offer $700 and he takes it. We take it to my house where it will live since my friend does not have a garage. After ripping it up and and down the dirt road again we pull the seat and tank and its not looking right. Steve at ADV confirms that this year frame is not a direct swap due to dual carbs and shock placement. I hop on Ebay and someone just added a 1986 XR600R frame that day. Its the only on on there. I buy it instantly for $99 shipped with a bill of sale. Woo Hoo! $800 and we are on the way!!! Here it is when we got it. At home meeting its little brother. The new frame arrives! Sanding off any rust and prepping for paint.
  25. Does anyone know if or when Honda added an electric start to the XR600? If not, does it have a manual or automatic compression release? Thanks!
