I think Honda switched to the XR650l shock for the XR600 in the mid 90's. Don't know which year.
I just thought of a way to find when Honda changed to the larger body. Go to cheapcycleparts and start checking the shock body part #. When you come to a year that has a new # then you have found the change.
