    Can somebody please verify and write (PM) whether Footpegs would fit on your motorcycle.
    Which dimensions modify to fit them.
    Thank you very much

    That's a rare bird...............I've been standing in the XR/ATK line for a few decades now:rofl And I've never even seen the bike in person, only photos.

    If I recall correctly, the early ATKs with the XR engine used an adapter to mount a single carb to the dual carb head. This is the only thing I didn't like about those early ATKs. I suppose after riding one I might find more things to dislike :D


    What kind of aftermarket frame are we looking for?...............A question for Lucky:lol3

    I thought it might be interesting to take a RFVC, air cooled XR engine and stuff it into a more modern aluminum frame, but which frame would be most compatible?

    ^^^^thing is Ive never seen someone succesfully do the swap...ive seen many threads with promise that dead end....

    as we all know a better frame would make the xr engine shine more

    anyways...

    hope somoene does this someday, sometime! that would be a sight to see and RIDE!:D

    Finaly found some time to disassamble my little pig, and I'm kinda confused! It's been worked on before I bought it... I knew it from the start, cause it has 100mm cilinder on... but what confuses me, looking at a camshaft (will take pictures tomorow)
    I tend to ask some questions. Does the XR shaft have the middle bearing? There is an assembly on mine that looks like decompresor, and I definitly dont nead it :deal . and if there is no bearing on the camshaft, should there be a seat on
    the head... uh... it would be easyee with the pics...

    Aluninum would be great......thats probable asking for alot. I would be happy with a chrome-moly well crafted frame. I was thinking about doing a restore job on my bike and the frame has always been a eye sore. But yes, it would be interesting to find a late model dirt bike frame that would adapt. I dont use a factory air box so I have more room.

    Allright, no bearing, but my camshaft doesn't look like yours!

    6,4,11 are what is troubling me! [​IMG]

    Sure it does. 6,4 and 11 are behind #12. These parts make up the decompressor assembly.

    but I have a manual decompresor, why to hell do I need these? can I remove it somehow? looking at it, it doesn't look like it's doing anything!

    It is also part of the anti kick back. There is no reason to remove. Mr Honda put it there for a reason.

    the drysump 250 has the same gizmo
    it rattled and I removed it
    can live with the occasional attempt to kick back of a little thumper
    a big thumper split my heel a long time ago
    that was very little fun

    it is your personal choice, of course you can remove
    but please do not complain if you get to pay the price

    When I bought my 600r the decomp valve was open all the time. The bike had oil contamination and oil consumption due to improper operation. It started easy but ran poorly. I adjusted it and now it runs great and starts just as easily. No more oil consumption. I add about 1 cup of oil between changes. Its a 95 xr600r with a 650 kit.

    What the heck are you talking about??? Your 1995 XR600 does not have a decompressor VALVE. It has a manual decompressor that opens the right exhaust valve and the assembly on the cam. Now if your saying the manual lever and cable were out of adjustment and the exhaust valve was open then the engine wouldn't run at all due to the valve releasing the cylinders compression.

    Quick question for Steve ,

    I've got my top end off : when looking at the head from underneath ( where the valves are ) there is a small pear shaped apperture on the cam chain side............what's it for . and where does it go ? Seems to be directly under the spring loaded compression pin.

    Cheers in advance

    That's the one , thanks . I'm glad it's nothing to worry about , as I've just dug a shedload of sand/grit out of it.
    The PO had installed a " homemade ":eek1 air filter arrangement , and there's evidence of sand everywhere. I was worried this might have been an oilway.

    I'm thinking of chucking it all in the dishwasher while everyones asleep on Christmas Day :lol3

    Once again , thanks for your help and great photo's

    Cheers , Stu
