1986 XR600R
You saw the before pictures earlier in the thread... here are the after! I have white sidecovers coming from eBay (the ones from 86) in white with the red sticker background.... Other than that I put the baja designs LED tail light and a mx style UFO fenders all around. That's a XR650R headlight. Acerbis flip down mirrors. Flush mount turn signals and we're on our way to the DMV!!!

That's the trail out behind work... the "lunch break" trail!

I've had my 95 since 96 as the third owner. Best mod was suspension, and sorting out the jetting.
Another mod I don't believe was mentioned, if you are stuck with conventional forks, is a fork brace. I never believed this to be a big deal until I installed it. No more flex, and now quicker in the corners.

This has left me with scads of parts cluttering the garage like the original front end off of the 1991, a spare stock muffler or two, some tanks, and a whole bunch of other stuff that'll end up on eBay once I get off my butt and get them listed.

Do you still have one of those stock mufflers hanging around? What would you part with one to fit my 1996 XR for? Lookin' for an oversize tank as well if you've got one laying around.

Thanks!

I have CR Hi bend bars with 2 inch Rox bar risers on my 2000 XR600R. I'm 6 feet tall and this is perfect for me. I was able to use the stock cables by rotating the throttle 180 degrees. These risers are a great design and allow you to rotate front to back to get the best position.

That's an awesome part! Do you know if Rox makes a setup for fat bars (bars and clamp both 1.25") or a 7/8" bottom and 1.25" top?

Great little piggy shots!

I also own a 650R, but there is nothing quite like the simplicity of the XR600R.

Here's my '97, which I bought last April. She runs like a Swiss watch and has the necessary pieces-parts to keep The Man away while riding the slab.

In a perfect world, Honda would still be producing these beasts with an aluminum frame!

I believe they do have the same part for fat bars. I bought mine direct from Rox online.

I *may* be joining y'all's ranks here shortly. I'm tryin to work a trade for a 95 XR600 that needs TLC for a bicycle. Dood's around the corner. Sez the bike was running when he parked it 8mos ago.

So... what's the secret handshake?

Its not done, so I can't get too excited. Sounds good tho!

Good luck on your transaction, my man -

But the secret handshake is not all that secret: It's laid out there in plain sight on a bike/platform of proven technology over 20 years old! I always loved the XR600s. Glad to see so many people posting them up here!

I'm tryin to avoid that!

Spin around three times in a counter-clockwise direction

Hope she fires?

She won't understand the Deutsch. Try some きれいな言葉 in Japanese, especially during this Tucson cold spell. She should fire right up.
