    NICE MOD! Did you just cut an OEM oil line? Do you think it makes a difference in flow or volume?

    thanks Jeff!

    there is a reason I did not modify the banjo bolts and that is in order to maintain stock flow or flow of volume if you will

    If I had a bad ass hrc pump and reversed oil orifices in the case then yeah its recomended to drill out the upper banjo bolt holes equal size and match them to the LOWER banjo bolt hole sizes

    the reason I did it this way is

    1. there are too many bends and kinks and dents in the stock oil pipe and its also metal and more prone heat, its also thin!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    mine was rubbed by a loose old header and I got tired if the small weep it had.

    2. this braided line is extra strong and the internal diameter is the same as the external diameter of the original pipe...so you do gain a little more volume from lower banjo to upper banjo but Im sure it has no effect on how much gets to the head, as that is determined by rpm and restriction mostly in the upper banjo bolt hole.

    if this line were all metal then it would kind of act like a heat sink before entering the head which would be very cool in my mind and something I would love to do down the road...

    so far so good after 100miles now and city driving too,

    :D

    New XR600R owner here. :wave

    I have been given a broken '88 and have to fix to ride.

    There's no spark when I kick it through. Tried numerous times - in the dark.

    A buddy of mine has an '86 XR600R - and I was going to swap the CDIs to see if that's the problem. But I have looked at a couple of replacement houses and they all show date ranges of 1988 to 2000.

    Can I use the older CDI to test for spark? :scratch

    I have a CDI you can try

    It's probably the pulse generator

    Uh, ok. :D

    Pulse generator - do I need to try a spare or just get one off fleaBay?

    hey nixels welcome fellow 88er

    ok
    first try stator resistance: 230-320ohms

    then try primary and secodnary coil resistance
    the try cutting and snipping some nre wire off the sparkplug lead and rescrew the honda cap back on

    then if nothing try replacing the sparkplug cap resistor with a metal rod

    if none of this THEN try cdi as its the only one you really cant diagnose other than by switching a known good one

    if its not electrical then try other stuff like compression check, leakdown test, valves etc...

    good luck and welcome man!

    read STEVES rebuild thread for a step by step rebuild if you have to do so.

    Welcome !

    Like Christian said, start with the easy things like a new spark plug and plug cap and take a little of the cap wire before you rescrew it.
    Also, visually check your wiring harness where possible without having to remove the entire thing. Look for bad spots / connections, pay special attention to the frame ground.

    Also, check or disconnect the kill switch, it could be robbing you off a spark right there if it's shorting out.


    The stator could be the problem, but is expensive to replace, so measure it if you can.

    I replaced my pulse generator myself recently with a good used one from Ebay, was about 30 bucks, so that's not too bad.

    Let us know where you stand, good luck !

    Hahahaha good find!

    In other news: I've organised replacement gears from Steve who has posted them to me a couple of days ago. THis should fix my transmission problems and prevent/delay the 2nd/3rd gears explosions.

    I have also just ordered a big bunch of stuff from the states, totalling $500.

    Gaskets, springs, filters, cam, rockers, cam chains, seals and a variety of other small things. Should be here soon.

    All that is left is to get a top end kit, get the cyclinder bored and honed and choose a piston. I've changed from the high comp Wiseco, now either the 99mm Wossner or the 100mm JE. Since Im not resleeving I am leaning towards the Wossner.

    Cheers,

    John
