87 XR600R starting procedure

Steve,
Last year you posted your procedure and when I used it the thing fired right up. Mind posting it up again? You'll save me a lot of legwork. Legwork... get it?

Looking for an 18" drum brake rear wheel

Merry Christmas gang,
I'm looking for an 18" drum brake rear wheel for my 87 XR. I thought I would see if anyone is parting anything out before I go have something laced up.
Thanks,
Big Bastard

Rekluse clutch on an XR600R

Anyone tried to adapt the Rekluse from the XR650R or the CR500R to one of our bikes? Are the standard clutches interchangeable on any of these models? They don't make one for the 600R.
