No, you should worry when it goes north of 300F. Average reported oil temps for these bikes is usually below 275. It's the long stints at either highway speed or extremely low speed that make them heat up.

Power peaks around 5500 and nosedives thereafter so there is nothing to be gained by taking it past about 6000. The CDI limits rpm to between 7500 and 8000.

Slater, mate, this is one of those bikes where you simply change up gear when you start to run out of puff. Waaaahhhh... Waaaaahhhhh.... and so on. Easy as pie.

Yep I pressed off the auto decomp, welded the holes shut, and re-assembled. Problem is now it runs so well that it slips the clutch a fair bit. It was slipping lightly before, but much worse now. New EBC clutch is in the mail. I had a Barnett on my CBR, but the EBC is held in high regard it seems, and was $50 less.

Should be riding next weekend.



Boingk I like your style!

slater,

Don't forget to oil the new clutch friction plates prior to assembly.

The clutch steel's also should all go in one way. The steels are punched from sheet metal and have a smoother. rounded edge on one side and a sharper, square edge on the other. I always put the sharp edge facing IN.

Fact or myth I don't know it's just something I do.

True: This is from the KTM LC8 manual, but the same idea. Although, it doesn't mention which direction; maybe that part doesn't mater?

The clutch disks are punched out. The sharp edges
on all of the disks must point in the same direction.
The round recesses (for demounting) must be in
the same meshing.

help please?

Hey all,
I'm a newbie to this thread- but a xr600 lover from waaaay back (just bought my 4th). Thanks for all the good info here.

Could someone help me out a bit? I am missing the plastic piece that protects the top of the swingarm from the chain. Since I don't remember what it looks like, I'm having a hard time picking it out from the parts diagrams. Is it SKU: 50911-MN1-670 SLIPPER, CHAIN ? SKU: 52170-MN1-671 SLIDER, CHAIN ? Or something else?

Also, does anyone have any home-spun ideas for replacing it?

Any help would be much appreciated. Sorry to introduce myself with my hand out. Thanks,
Pete
