Hey quys while installing this case saver I noticed my sprocket has play In it ? It is very new as is the shaft? Are they this way even when new or are jt sprockets junk
its normal, brand new they have slop in them and jt seem to be good sprockets. you can check out the write ups on swithing to a xr650r sprocket, they take all the slop out with a better fit.

all good, some use the xr650r sprockets as they are wider but the side to side movement is normal providing the retainer and sprocket are in good nick

You've got the answer right.

Since the gear retainer index's in the slot on the counter shaft there should be almost no movement side to side. Fore and aft rotation = worn gear and shaft.

So the xr650 sprocket will work and is better. Does it just bolt up with no mods.?

Hey All,
I have a problem with my XR.

I am attempting to line up everything on TDC so that I can replace the timing chain, and the markings on the flywheel are nowhere near the inspection hole when on TDC. With the flywheel marks lined up in the inspection hole, the piston appears to be on BDC prior to the compression stroke. Needless to say, the markings on the cam sprocket are way out.

The engine was running before I removed it from the frame..

The marks are on the flywheel are: | | |F |T


got me stumped....any ideas???

In the small hole on the stator cover you should see the T sideways. The piston will be at TDC. If the cam chain is off it doesn't matter about compression or exhaust stroke. Get the chain on the bottom gear and the top gear like this:




Be sure that the cam lobes are DOWN.


Unless you have removed the stator rotor and installed it 180' out there's no way the piston will be at BDC with the T mark in the hole.

New '89 XR600

Hi everyone,

Bought my first offroad bike the other day, 1989 XR600 which has been bored out for a 630 kit. Also came with bashplate, frame protector, larger pegs, new spring, hand protectors, aftermarket headlight and renthal bars.

Previous owner just replaced the front axle, wheel bearings and exhaust valves so shouldn't need to pull apart the engine for a while. Choke lever was broken so I have ordered parts to replace that.

Pretty keen to learn to ride on the dirt too! Pics to follow:




Cheers,
John

Cheers for that, Steve, It appears to be that sometime in the past, the flywheel has been installed 180' out.
I cannot get the marks to line up with the piston on TDC.

The last guy that was in here didn't own a set of allen keys either, apparently. There are a few allen headed bolts that have been minced by a cold chisel and a lock nut from the tappet adjustment was loose and floating around.
My guess is that it was dropped, and rather than find it, it was just replaced.Luckily, it did no damage while it was loose in there.
