1985 Honda XL350R

I have an 1985 XL350R that had a valve head come off in the cylinder causing a decent amount of damage. I was able to locate a 1984 XL350R parts bike for $250 and was wondering if the motor is the same? Is it basically a straight swap if I want to keep the existing crankcase and throw the new motor on top?

Yes
83-84 Xr350 And 83-85 xl350r should work. 85 xr350 is the only different one. 83 xr350 covers are also magnesium.

Cool. Are there any good DIY's for swapping a motor out on an XL350R? I've not worked on these before and wouldn't mind some tips.

not that im aware of. It's pretty straightforward, just take care with the carb boot as they can crack with age and replacements are almost impossible to get now.
