I think that the pegs themselves might be the same for all years, but the way that they mount to the frame differs.
I have an '88, and the pegs mount differently than the '87.
Yeah I meant the way of mounting..

Could you be kind to show how they differ? I want some bigger ones on my 87 XR but if the difference is marginal I might be able to adapt the 88 and up to my 87 peg,, euh.. holders?

How does it feel when you run your fingernail through it? Any close-up photos?

How are your rocker lobes, are they flattened out?

If you think the piston and bore are still good to go, they probably are. You can have the piston checked out and measured at a shop to be sure if you want. Not just to check the size, but also to see if the shape is still good. Sometimes after a while either the intake or exhaust side, I forget which one, can wear down and the piston loses it's shape.
If you just replace the rings you still need to break them in for a couple 100 km's
Here's the history : it's a nx650 cylinder and piston, think I'll go with the ring anyway, and see what will happen. If it consumes a lot of oil this year I plan on going to 102mm bore. Regarding the head, I saw somewhere in the tread someone grinded down that middle bearing, and after riding it this whole year, and a man riding it before me didn't do the exchange... and the cam isn't damaged... think it's OK now :) .

You know it wasn't that bad. I've gotthe bike set up (bar risers) so I can ride standing pretty comfortably when needed. The 1100 miles was over a weekend so it was broken up fairly well. You know I've had a worse case of "Monkey Butt" riding my 92 Fatboy 300 miles

Thanks, the screen is a cee bailys model from a XR 650, it fit pretty well on my aftermarket headlight housing. The handguards are a MSR brand I got off ebay I think. Here is a shot or 2 of them.

Headlight

Jeff

Does that headlight housing have LED bulbs in those small holes on each side of the headlight that act as turn signals? How do you think the headlight itself compares to the OEM headlight?

Yes they are LED's and I now have them wired in as my front signals. In the pictures i still had regular signals installed. But I needed some clearence room for my larger tank so the signals had to go. The LEDs can be used as running lights or signals. And they are pretty bright. The headlight IMHO is brighter than OEM, with thee right H4 bulb installed....I think I'm running a Silverstar Ultra. I've tried a few different ones and this one seems to work best.

I don't really understand what you mean.
If you grind down the centre cam journal you would have to weld it up and then have it re-ground to specification again.
Your cam is completely fine? If the damage to the journal is bad, it won't be for long...
How does the bad spot feel?

what I could make out from those pics in my humble opinion was HORRIBLE black oil...

the centre cam journal looked like it had BURNT oil on it which can easily be cleaned up...if its scuffed or pitted,then a regrind or polish is needed...

again my humble opinion

I really also dont understand why its so hard for people to frequently change their oil...its old dirty oil and a combinatiion of other scenarios that does this, mostly running low on oil and the consequent overheating...

BUT damn!

change your oil peeps!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hey alaska jeff- are those the Kenda 270s tires? I really can't decide on tires if I want to get a 90/10 dirt/street or something I can travel on.
