Are you talking about where the seat bolts go through? If so, I might have a set.
Steve, numbers 4 and 5.
Probably have #5. I'll look for #4
Yeah, this parts shock of mine has not been serviced since it left Japan 30 years ago
I didn't spend a whole lot of time trying to remove the cover, but I think its just pressed on. I was wondering if there was a way to remove it without destroying it. Only thing I could think of was to drill a pair of holes and use the slide puller with the right attachment to yank it off.
Having never done the job before, I was hoping someone would chime in and describe the right process.
I was missing one of those fender grommets too for the parts bike. However, I found a usable substitute in one of my bolts lots purchased off of ebay. Which I needed for something else during the rebuild.
I'm considering doing the XR650L swingarm on an XL600 as well.Any input on what I'll need to watch out for/ modify to get it to bolt up?
I have the rubber grommets for sure. I'm sure I have the sleeves as well, but I'll have to dig around my shed a little more for them.
Steve and lambrain- Thanks for looking for those pieces for me. Much appreciated.
velocipus- Not really much more to say than what I've already posted.
The swingarm itself is truly a bolt-on. You'll have to use the XL linkage and the XL shock will work too.
The biggest thing is welding on brackets to the frame for the disc brake set-up.
Good luck with it and if you have any other questions, feel free to ask.
I was all set to get the rear wheel mounted up....got some new parts.
The difference between the CR axle (top) and the XRL axle.
But, I ran into problems with bearing and seal fitment on the sprocket side so....I hung the wiring harness...
....found the handlebar mounts and bolted them on then went back to the Honda dealer and picked up the best cheap bars money can buy. Remember, I want this bike to look like an XL600R and that means no fancy Fat Bars or anything like that.
Not much accomplished and probably didn't warrant any pics but, what the heck, everyone likes pictures.
Hey Bruce, I can't find the sleeves, but if you pm me your address i can send you the rubber grommets!
I was just thinking if you got the rubber bits and collars. Guess I'll have a look at the parts bin.
Better late than never eh?
PM sent. Thanks man.
No worries Steve.
I finally made it to the parts shelf. Think slashing one's way through the thick jungle.
inner grove is 14mm x 3mm
The hole will accept the collar.
Washer end is 22mm
overall length is 17mm
Hole will accept the 6mm seat studs.
I went to take a picture of these bits but the dam battery is dead. Recharging now if you want a pic.
LOL. I know the slashing through the jungle all too well. You've seen pics of my garage.
Those numbers sound right.
I mailed you the rubber parts today!
Got 'em today. Thanks a lot lamebrain, that was very cool of you and very much appreciated.
Maybe I can do the same for you in the future.
New old stock factory Honda rear fender.
Looking good so far, looking forward to seeing it done.
