Steve will hopefully drop a note in here soon.
That's pretty much what I've gathered too, stock is best, but I've painted myself in a corner with the rest of the aftermarket parts. The stock cam with a high compression piston is supposed to build up some dangerous dynamic compression.

Time to unload some stuff laying around on eBay to raise the $400 to buy the hard weld top end.

Owyhee,

I wouldn't use a Hot Cam if you paid me.

Does that answer your question???

You have to much $$ and time invested to risk using a POS Hot Cam.

I don't want to be saying I told you so.

Thanks for the direct answer. This week I'm going to give Megacycle and Webcam and call and see what they recommend grind wise for my application.

Actually, yes, and it was that thread and the bike peeking at me from the corner of the garage that prompted me to finally figure out what to do to finally get that bike done (correctly).

Here's where the bike sits as of August 2010, the last time I worked on it:





It shares parts/farkles/wheels with my stock 1999 XR6 but is currently sporting a 5.8 gallon tank, 1995 CR500 forks, and there's a WP Superadjuster floating around in the garage somewhere.

Something I found out the hard way was that while CR500 forks fit with the big Acerbis tank, CR125/250 forks will not. The 125/250 fork's lower pinch bolts install from the side rather than the front and hit the tank at about 30 degrees of fork movement.

Hey all,
Just a quick question, probably pretty simple to answer for the XR600 guru's but I need to get confirmation so I can get some parts ordered. I am working on a 1986 XR600 and along the way decided to open up the carbs and give them a good clean. When I put them back on and opened the fuel, it started leaking from the bowl gaskets which, as it turned out, are pretty well toast..
I need to order a gasket set but can't figure out what type carb it is, the only indication is the Keihin logo and "PH" on the side, not much else. Being the first time I work on these bikes, I figured I'd ask before getting orders wrong, etc..
Below two pics for reference, thanks in advance guys!

fork springs and rates you like?

hey guys...

what rate fork springs have you guys used and how much do you weigh?

I think I weigh a bit much for the stock springs in my 98 forks, and I also have a 4galon tank on, I think I ride aggressively and need something better up front.

I am getting a revlaved an reworked shock for the back so Im stoked about that but need some beefing up in the forks.

Racetechs' site is weird, they recommend .51 but offer a .46 for a 170lb rider for desert/enduro

what have you guys used that works?

heard eibach's are great but they offer a .42 and .44

I read somewhere that for a 180lb rider .43 where good but really want to make the right choice!

Thanks dudes

Just order the OEM original bowl gaskets from your local shop or from Cheapcycleparts.com. I don't think there are any aftermarket options...
