Hey guys, I'm looking for the plastic frame guards, just above the foot pegs, not the metal plate style, but the zip tie "Y" shape style. Any leads? Thanks

xrl bottom end with xl 600 top end

i have just done a dry build with a rfvc 650 bottom mated to xl600r barrel,stock piston and twin carb head.
without gaskets the piston is 1.3mm above deck height.so with double base gaskets and stock head gasket i should just about clear zero deck.
has anybody done this without issues..valve to piston clearance etc.
any advice would be great.

Acerbis made the white ones. Don't know if they're still available though.

That much piston above the top of the cylinder is not going to work.
The head gaskets are designed to be between a flat surfaces and not another gasket.
If you want to pursue make a 1.3MM solid copper cylinder base gasket.

Back in the late 70's when alcohol fuels first hit the scene, I was riding a Moto Guzzi Sport and tried two head gaskets to reduce the compression to something that the alcohol/gasoline fuel could tolerate without knocking like a forge hammer. The stack of gaskets just would not hold a seal long.

Doesn't alcohol fuel like higher compression?

If you make a 1.3 mm copper , there might be a chance that your timing chain will end up tighht. Ask me how I know...

When alcohol/ethanol fuels hit the market even my 6 cyl. Ford knocked when using these fuels.
I was relating this experience to lend creditability to my recommendation of not using two head gaskets based upon actual experience doing so.
I ran two gaskets for quite some time as I was riding my Sport daily to work.
After a rather short time the gaskets would leak and burn through.
Because of the poor reliability of two head gaskets I made a base gasket of pipe flange gasket material. It was a little thicker than two Guzzi head gaskets.
There was a reduction in performance but the bike got me where I was going till I could put lower compression pistons suitable for the newer fuels.

Here's the old Sport outside my "pad" with it's custom cover:


It was a cool bike. I had to be the first Sport Biker in Houston. Note clip on handlebars
and 10 HP worth of stickers:

Thanks for posting the link, my enthusiasm was cut a little bit short when I found out they only make Aluminum rear sprockets but I'm still happy there is a option for custom sprockets.
plus they have that hard coat option and a option to go Xtra Lite.

Go to Fleabay and type in


99 XR600R Acerbis Frame Guards


And I bet you may find some there.

Or try Power Sport Junkie or many others for the UFO brand.
