    Well almost free. You pay for the shipping.

    I have a tank, seat, forks and air box off of a 1986 XR600 that I'd rather give away than throw away. Also speed-o, clutch, throttle cables. Front and rear brake hoses.

    Any takers?

    Using the XR daily on a 50 mile B road Commute which is fun. The clutch is slipping under hard acceleration. Never had this problem with the XL which has far more miles on it. Do the springs usually fade before the plates wear? I was wondering if I might get away with new springs. The whole kit: plates and separators (metal) and springs is about 70 euros here in Spain. I could always use parts out of the XL but still reluctant to start breaking the XL... I had another question but it`s slipped my mind:-) Not sure if I have the counter shaft sprocket on the right way...flat side in. What are preferences with regard to scintered or standard brake pads on these bikes? Have a great weekend!:-)

    One your clutch starts slipping , the fiber plates are done. Steels should be fine. I'd just do the fibers and springs if available separately. May save a little. Don't forget the gasket. Get the scintered pads , they work better and are affected less by water.

    If you have had any oil in the XR that contains friction modifiers, that will cause your clutch to slip also.

    I got a complete clutch kit from an eBay seller in the US for roughly $50. Plates, separators and springs.

    Appart from the original leather tool bag which is stuffed full, there`s not much
    storage space on the XR! Limited by a lack of suitable places to get a bungie hook around. The subframe is also short. Cannot get a net around the 22 Acerbis either.. Looking for luggage ideas in the form of throw overs, tanks bags, panniers...welded up racks etc. One other thing. If the bike is hot it will start but if left to sit for five minutes it needs half choke. Cold start, usual procedure and fires up on 2nd kick on half choke. Any tips on semi hot start ie. sitting for more than a few minutes from hot?
    About to buy a batch of Repsol 20/50 or Repsol Diesel 15/40..prices are similar. Previously have used both. Leaning towards the 20/50 for the hot Spanish Summers:-)

    Make sure that the oil you use has no additives in it as these will make your clutch slip.

    Here is a link to a post from a friend of mine on how he sorted out the storage space.

    If you wish to know more, as he is a RKI on this, just slip him a PM.

    I have a Baja Designs dual sport wiring kit I have yet to install. That and turn indicators and a horn. I think a price of $2750.00 is fair considering all of the work involved. I think I make about $10.00 an hour doing these builds.

    Great looking bike Steve. Shouldn't take long to sale with all those updates. Where did you get the stainless brake lines?
