You have to do any machining to make 'em fit?

Is there a significant difference?

One thing I noticed on mine is that the brakes aren't quite as "grabby" as I'd like.

Maybe it's due for some new pads.. I haven't checked, frankly.
New quality pads, fluid and an SS braided brake line should take out a lot of the initial squishy feeling...

Well, a lot's of fitting included. I'we mounted the GSXR1000 front disc to ducati wheal, and it's a 6 to 5 holes fitting , and the back wheal is some 40 or 50 mm wider then the XR's fork. So it was an adventure, but it works now :)

whats the difference in power/torque output between the regular FMF Hiflow HD pipe for XR600, and the FMF powerbomb s/s for xr600??

I can get one of those, or an ABP..

I am of-course running a hotcam, 11:1 wiseco, and an FCR-MX 40..

From what I know the main difference is that Powerbomb delivers a nicer sound, a bit more of a low rumble beacause of the expansion chamber. Also, it's supposed to be geared a little more towards torque, where as the hi-flow pipe is for horsepower

BTW, if the ABP pipe is from Marktplaats or something local and the FMF will be ordered from the US, don't forget to take into account customs fees.
When I got my FMF Q4 muffler I paid about 230 Euro's including shipping, on top of that I got slapped with an additional 85 Euro's customs clearance.....

I have the powerbomb with Q4 setup on mine. Still getting my carb ironed out, but gives a good boost off the bottom and helped create a nice hard hit in the middle. Really comes on the power nicely and gives a nice sound without being too loud. Well made piece, too.

Just ordered a Works Connection rear shock for the XR 600 R to go with the new front end. The thing should handle now!

how does it compare in the top revs compared to the stock header? My piggy will rev, but there's no end punch..

I don't think there could be any doubt it will be better than a stock pipe with your set-up

It flows a lot better

I hope he's okay too.

When fitting my front wheel I am left with this space from the inside of the fork leg to the speedo drive spacer if I leave the forkleg in its relaxed position, I can eliminate this by forcing the leg inwards and then tightening the clamp, which way is correct

Tighten the axle into the left leg. Leave the bolts and cap slightly loose on the right leg. Bounce the forks up 'n down a few times. Where ever they land is where you tighten the cap.
