    I dig it I just love all black everything. You can't really go wrong with a black red and white xr either. What do you want for the completed xr?

    Looking to get $3500.00. I built the motor two years ago for the PO and he spent 2K on it. I have all of the receipts. Has about 800 miles of street usage on it. Cal plated! I have an early Baja Designs kit for it also.

    The white one will be less. $2500.00. I doing the motor now. Same with the Baja Designs kit and plated.

    I would really really appreciate it if you could take a picture or three of this... anything will help.

    I have a 92 XR600R that had a blown shock, i found a XR650L shock on ebay in great shape for cheap that I slapped in there. it runs great. and holds both wife and I .

    I would like to make that shock as long as possible, so if I need a spacer I can get one machined, I just am not picturing where it needs to go.

    Seems I ride the 400 more than the XR6 and the wife wants to start riding again... looking for something dual sported that can be easily kick started or has the magic button. The bike I'm looking for also needs to be low or have the capability of being lowered to fit her 5'3"

    The XR600r is CA plated and is fairly clean. I've had it about a year and half and haven't had it out much. It has an aftermarket silencer but other than that it appears stock. As far as the dualsport kit on this bike... there isn't much there. One mirror, a headlight, and tail lamp - that's it. It is currently registered.

    I'm in Creston CA 93432 if anyone wants to check it out. I can also send pics via email if needed. PM me or email me at horsepower-ranch@sbcglobal.net

    I haven't posted this in the flea market yet... wanted to see if any of you guys were interested in a trade first.

    thanks,
    steve

    I'm looking for a Desert gas tank (larger than stock size - the bigger the better) for a 85 Honda XR600 that's in fair/useable shape. Tank does not have to be pretty. Faded & scratched up is just fine. If you have one or might know someone who does, send me a PM.

    UPDATE: An inmate contacted me and said he has a Clark Desert tank that's on a 88 XR600. Would the tank off the 88 bolt right on my 85 XR600 without making any modifications?

    Thank you for your time.

    It looks like the Clark tanks for the 88 XR600 will only fit 88-2000, so it will not work on my 85.

    Thanks for the link, Steve

    Can you give me more help with this? When I look at the shock shaft, the top channel through the shaft has a lot more material than just a normal thin peened over edge that I've seen in other shocks. The diameter of that channel is the same for over 1/4" downward until the seat for the needle. And looking at the bottom of the needle, through the shaft from the clevis end, it seems to be probably three times the diameter of the passage through the top of the rod. Am I missing something obvious?

    Maybe the '85 shares the tank mounting system with the XL600? Does it attach to the front of the frame with two bolts that screw in laterally, or does the frame have two peg shaped nubs with cylindrical rubber bushings around them?

    The 85 XR600 has two bolts mount to the frame and the rear of the tank has a rubber strap. The 85 XL600 has the rubber bushings up front and a single bolt holding the rear. Clark gas tank mfg says the 85 XR600 gas tank will fit the XR600 (85-87)

    can one of you guys tell me if the earlier and later output shafts are interchangable? i.e. would i be able to sling a newer version in to replace my 6 spline version?

    thanks

    I'm pretty sure that they are interchangable.

    Greetings, all!

    Just bought an XR628R from a fellow inmate. Ad found here:

    http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=920703&highlight=xr628r+street

    It is a glorious bike, with lots of tasty goodies. Unfortunately it does have a few niggling problems that I could use advice on.

    The Edelbrock Quicksilver II carb is giving me trouble at cold starts. Spent 1/2 an hour kicking it the other day with nothing to show for it but a bruised right foot. I followed proper procedure and it'd run for a few seconds, but then die. Seems like fuel starvation, possibly linked to an issue with the accelerator pump. I know that this carb has been discontinued and that parts are becoming scarce. I need to pull it and check things out, but I am hesitant to put much time into learning about a discontinued and unloved carb when I could sell it and pick up something with better support and community knowledge. The question is, what to get? I've heard the Mikuni TC series are nice, as are the FCRs. What I want is easy starting and smooth performance through the range and I'm willing to sacrifice ultimate WFO power to get it. Based on what I've read, the Mikuni sounds like the better choice for my needs. Which model? Is there a good plug and play option with an accelerator pump?

    The other issue is with the electrical system. It is all AC, with a DRG/Dirt Freak dual-sport kit. The turn signal relay is not designed for AC so keeps burning out. I installed a standard relay but it didn't work either. I'm thinking it may be wise to hook a rectifier to one side of the Ricky stator to supply DC to the turn signals, horn, Vapor and other accessories, then leave the other side AC for the headlight and ignition. Does this make sense to anybody?

    Thanks in advance for the help!

    I think an old school non-electronic relay should work on AC. You'll want non-LED turn signals.

    It's possible to run a split AC and DC system, but easier and simpler to run a single DC system. Either Ricky Stator or Trail tech for a reg/rectifier. You'll additionally need a capacitor or battery for the rectifier to function correctly.

    My XR6 has a TC carb. It took me a while to shake it out, but now have it running pretty good. Easy to start, hot or cold for most part. With that said, it has a small flat spot in the middle just past 1/3 throttle. Comes on hard after that, but is annoying.

    Personally, I'd look for a Keihen FCR or similar pumper carb first. I'm on the prowl for one, but not desperate as mine runs just fine with the current setup. The FCR will give you the most HP and biggest kick in the pants from the seat.
