And at the current currency rates that cam comes out to $275.0. May as well get a Mega Cycle cam.

Xl600R rear suspension link

Hey,

I am looking for a rear suspension link for my XL6R. The link links the rear shock to the swingarm...I think. There are two zerk fittings on it, and it looks kind of like a dog bone. If anybody has an extra and is willing to part with it, I would be happy to pay for it.

Thanks,
Jack

The Hot Cam stage one arrived today as well as the 1989 XR600 cylinder head cover. Just doing a cursory fitting on the 1986 Xl600R, the only snag is that I'll need the XR bearing that goes on the sprocket end of the camshaft, as the Hot Cam shaft size is a bit smaller than the XL. It is also necessary to flip the sprocket over to get the cam chain alignment right. Red1 in his posts had indicated that he had to mix and match rockers but as far as I can tell everything lines up fine. Pics tomorrow.

Question need some help

Having a problem with my XL6.
Lately, when started, it has developed a miss, right off the idle, quite often it will just stop. It will start again immediately on the first kick, sometimes keep running, often just stop again.
The problem is just off idle, plenty of power and no hesitation when throttle is applied.
Have pulled primary carby apart, blown out all the passages that I could see, cleaned the jets with compressed air.
Bike has a new ricky stator, coil, CDI and spark plug.
I have replaced the fuel and cleaned out the lines....

Got me confused...any ideas???

Did you clean out the emulsion tubes right under the main jets? They will collect fine grit over time.

Not when you consider the cost recommended spring kit and rocker face hardwelding for the Mega Cycle. It's over $600 when you include all that jazz.

If it's the same as an 84 xl250r, it looks the same compared to my 600 (if anyone knows for sure, chime in) then I have one and I'm in Akron it'd be a cheap, reasonable price let me know-kevin

That's one of the reasons to look for an alternative.
1989 Rocker Cover from E-bay




The Description when purchased said it was a 1989 Hot Cam, The box it came in said 93 XR650L.
Installed in cylinder head cover with sprocket reversed. Also the sprocket end of the camshaft is larger on the XL600R so to make it work a 1989 XR600 Bearing was ordered. This was my best guess to how it would fit when in the head.




One extra large rocker.




The rocker cover and cam sit on the 1986 head and so far there doesn't appear to be any obvious problems other then the center journal seems a bit off center. The camshaft bearing will be here Wednesday.

+1 for rebuild or at least tear it down to see what the damage is.

Brad,

Do the olde screw driver Stethoscope trick. Get the biggest screw driver you have and put the handle to your ear and the tip at different places on the motor to try to locate where the noise is coming from. You can also remove the rocker inspection covers and look at the cam and rockers. Check if one or more rocker arms has a lot of play. That will tell you right there what's wrong.

I'd wash the engine and frame above the engine first to keep dirt from getting into the motor
