I need hand guards for an '83 and an '85 Xl600. I don't want to spend a ton. Any suggestions?

Thanks,

If you can find a running XL600 for under 1500 buy it, you can resell them for more than that easily.

Wow, that makes me feel really good. I picked up this beast for $500 from a friend, and apparently it was a great deal!



Rode it home (about 100 miles), tightened the chain, threw on a new tire, and now she's my daily ride. Oh, by the way, this is my FIRST bike, and I love it!

That was waterscm that volunteered mine and others' help. And the Zombie doesn't "stop", the Zombie keeps on Stomping!

Cry Need 83 XL600R Thumper Help!

Alexandira, LA

Tyring to restore my Thumper, been in my family since Mom bought it for dad brand new Xmas of 1983.

Bike is great but it essentially needs a new (running) engine, and the two plastic side panels, decal plates. If neccessary I'll buy a second XL out right if I can find one around $1500 or less.

I would greatly appreciate it, if you all will keep your eyes open for any of the above and point me in the right direction if you find anything. This is some perfect trail riding weather we're having down here and I'm getting anxious. Thanks guys.

Stephen

Good luck on side panels. eBay is your only hope. Unless you doing a "correct" restorarion, any universal front fender from Acerbis, Maier, etc will fit.
Do you know that the engine is bad, or just doesn't want to start?

i second that comment about the covers. the only decent one ive found in aus was in perth and was old and was 60bucks! so ive done about 5000ks without the airbox side cover.

The engine is cooked. Bad oil change by a local shop (out of business) while I was deployed overseas. The mechanic didnt follow my very specific instructions and failed to realize that you had to run the bike after the first quart or you'd get a bad reading on the dipstick. So he only added one quart instead of three. My fault of couse was failing to double check.

Expensive lessoned learned.

So, I essentially need a complete top end; cylinder head, crank rockers, piston, valves, cam, etc.

Less expensive to just find a working engine I imagine.
