Judoka form the xR600 thread is coming down next weekend to do some famous baja stuff. Prolly going to take him to La Presa Rodriguez (32.427055,-116.892185). Maybe do a trail I've wanted to do since last Ancianos Tecate Enduro, Starts here (32.500079,-116.588116) and ends here(32.504422,-116.676228) or thereabouts.

Anyone have some tracks they wanna share? and anyone is welcome.

Odd. I have had both the XR600R and XR650L The tanks and seats were the same on them and I have interchanged them before.

Thanks and Happy New Year!!

I just looked at the XRL and CRF wheels. Both are 1.60. The difference is that the XRL rim is thicker material for being a street bike. The CRF is thinner for being a RACE bike.


Hope I'm not being a Post Whore by answering these type of questions...

It may have had something todo with the bigger tank, and the angle. But there was a gap in the horn of the seat, so... swapped.

Not any more than me , thanks for clearing that up.

The 600R also has the same rim as the XRL... and I haven't wrecked it yet, but I have very little experience with the 450R wheel and don't really want to run it if I'm going to trash it.

I remember seeing something somewhere about a bolt that is a quick release connection to drain the oil.... I did a change today and got oil all over the bash guard, which means, all of the F. I've found a few that are for cars specifically, but seen a bit too high profile and I'd be scurred to run them, like the fram sure drain and the Fumoto valve.

Want something lo-pro but easy as pie.

I bought my stator cover saver on eBay from forum member AKARob. However, I don't know if he is still selling them.

If you get a thin piece of steel, you can cut it into a sort of U shape then use high temp silicone to attach it to your case. I STRONGLY recommend strengthening this area especially if you have an aftermarket shifter (specifically MSR). I learned this lesson the hard way, mine is fixed with JB weld now but will have another piece over it soon.
