Thanks, me too. Unfortunately I haven't touched it for 5 months or so. Got a case of builders block.

LOL, yeah I know, I'm really dragging this out.

I need to take the bike to someone who can build me a hose from the rear shock to the reservoir, then get the shock rebuilt. Not going to take a chance on just measuring it and giving the specs to whoever builds it as more times than not, my measurements suck.
There's a local guy who says anything that Race Tech can do, so can he--I may give him a shot.

But right now, I'm attempting to get my TT600 running again. When that's over I'll migrate back over to the XL--hopefully.

Awesome stuff brucifer.

I'm going to beef up the frame, possibly like this:

Its an 1983 btw.

Any suggestions bruce my man?

I have an xr650r front end I'm going to put on it. I don't want to go USD, because I do not want total damping loss in the case of a seal failure.

Are you going to put an oil cooler on your bike? I have 2 xr250 oil coolers. too bad metric oil fittings are so god damn hard to find.

What kind of tank are you going to put on? I'm looking for a big one that works with the stock seat (which I plan to widen).

Any suggestions/help very much appreciated.

Thanks!

Pics soon.

Cameron.

P.S. Just built this xl for a buddy. yz450 front end, custom exhaust, k&ns, xr600 swingarm, 18 inch rims front and rear, trailtech battery in custom underseat battery box, custom seat, hella headlight, led tail light.

This is during the fabrication:

--Your pic didn't show up so I don't know.
I would ask Steve (mcma111) about that. I think he has some experience beefing up XR650Ls.--

I have an xr650r front end I'm going to put on it. I don't want to go USD, because I do not want total damping loss in the case of a seal failure.

--Good choice. Those are excellent forks. Probably one of the best conventional forks available.--

Are you going to put an oil cooler on your bike? I have 2 xr250 oil coolers. too bad metric oil fittings are so god damn hard to find.

--No oil cooler. The climate is so mild here it doesn't warrant the installation of one.--

What kind of tank are you going to put on? I'm looking for a big one that works with the stock seat (which I plan to widen).

--I'll be using the stocker.--

Any suggestions/help very much appreciated.

--I'm sure there's guys in the XL600 or XR600 threads that would be of assistance. I'll help with whatever I can.--

Thanks!

Pics soon.

Cameron.

That's what I was thinking too, Manos.

I'm courious about that hybird engine what pistion did you use? Was it purpose made to compensate for the longer stroke that a xrl engine has? You know I see alot of people cometing on using a xrl engine in an xl frame but that is the backwards thing to do as that xl600 engine with that short stroke runs way better than the lathargic xr650l engine even jetted and piped. But the rolling chassies is far superior, 18" rear wheel, longer lighter swing arm, much better shock, better seat, more choices for after market tanks, and better forks. That would be a darn good dual sport! Put a smaller battiery in and fit a slimmer side panel. O by the way xr's only exhaust makes the most power. If you dont belive me buy them all yourself and test them all. Cobra vs stock = dont wast your money keep the stocker, supper trapp good afforadable replacement I ran one on my xl600 works good, white brothers about the same as a supertrapp watch for the stainless pipe cracking at the canister base, xr's only best design that uses megaphone and diffuser disc's for the best cylinder scavenging Hope to see you get yours done soon!

The piston is just an off-the-shelf JE for the XR650L.
