How do you check the Oil level ? Do you know how the Oil circulation Work ?
Are all your Oil Filters clean , there are 3 in this Bike

The mechanical Rev Counter or speedometer was Standart on European XL / R .

Hi, Thanks for the link, vast amount of input there!! To answer your query,am more up on the oil system now and yes i cleaned the strainer and replaced the paper filter but was not aware of the third one inside. Check oil bike upright unscrew dipstick,wipe, drop back in, re check. Last check after i had it running 3-4days ago level was 2/3 up stick. Checked it 5mins ago and it has 20mm on the bottom so i'm still a bit concerned i may have some leakage some where.

Back to my issue on hand, I see fork seals and dust seals online, how do I know which ones are bad and need replacing??
I would like to have that old cover from you. PM me. i can send that plastic bracket/wire-and-oil-line holder thing you need as trade. Let me make you cover for cheap. It will have heavy duty thread used in its construction.

You can't do it. The mirrors are only sold as an assembly.

I just sold the set of folding aftermarket mirrors I was using too. You should have broke those a week ago.

Engine must be on normal operation Temp. and running upright the last few minutes befor you check the oil level .
Check always the same delay time (1-3 Min)after you kill the engine .
Running the Engine on the side stand give wrong readings .

I have had a glass shop cut a mirror and glue it on for $7.00 a couple years ago. They just stuck it over the broken one. They said they could have removed and completely replaced it also.

I got new aftermarket mirrors that were an exact replica for $15 here in Oz, have a look around they are pretty cheap on Ebay too.

He's going to bead blast it, check over the rockers, and replace the copper washers that go on the shafts. That way it comes back nice and crispy, looked over by a professional eye, and I can just hit it with paint.

Who has time to look at a tach??


Rev the piss out of it and shift.
When I do the above I feel like I am going to float a valve. Can you rev the piss out of these motors?

XR600R to XR650L electrical

OK, here's what I've got: Running 1995 XR600R (kick only), 1995 XR650R frame and electrical components. Goal: make a street legal bike with the XR650L frame, XR600R engine and all XR650L electrical, minus battery. Engine seems to not be much of an issue, other than some basic maintenance (rebuild carb) it runs fine. This bike will be run 98% of the time in the street with a SM setup. Not looking to keep a large battery on board or add the giant left rear compartment with all the electrical connections, would prefer to keep the wiring harness as small as possible. 3 wire pigtail coming from XR600R stator has three colors- Yellow/white, red/black, and green. Have looked at the BD kit, which seems as small and tight as possible, but wanted to get some feedback from those that have gone before me with respect to how to best proceed, and see if I needed to pony up the 4 bills for the BD, or could make a frankenharness out of what I have. Competent at marine wiring/electrical, never tried my hand at rewiring a motorcycle. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

you will need to have some sort of battery onboard to run XR650L wiring harness. It requires one to start. XL600 harness can be run with battery eliminator, or you could run XR600 harness with Dualsport kit attached.

Hi Remove the ali bash pan and the strainer is in the bottom of the down tube which has the oil line to the pump attached. Drain the oil and disconnect the flexible oil line and unscew the remaining piece from the frame. Strainer attached!!

Thanks Klaus will try that again. Am still having some difficulty starting the beast. Once running it purrs nicely.
Tried the techniques described here for this bike and maybe I am not quite doing it right. Will keep at it while my leg holds out!
