My 97 Xr600r after 2500 miles of the Tat.
Cleaned and inspected.
Been waiting for a while, but it finally turned up....Been on manufacturer's back order for a few months. (possibly while they made it)
This is the cam chain tensioner holding tool for the XR600. It will also do the XL600 and XR650L.
I know that many will use bits of wire, cable ties etc, but if there is a tool made for the job, I would much prefer to use it.
For those that wish to know, the Honda Part No. is 07973 MG3 0004
I'm in the process of changing my front axle from the 15mm to the 17mm due to swapping on some newer forks. So I think I'm good with the bearings but I need to find a spacer/distance collar to fit. The Honda part 44620-ML3-790 is apparently obsolete but the 650l part is available. Does anyone know if they are interchangeable?
Nice ride in the Nestucca today, rib I broke yesterday didn't hurt to bad.
Bought an FCR40 from a crf250 a little while back and finally managed to get it on and get out for a ride.
On long gearing (15/43 I'm pretty sure) it power wheelies easily in 2nd, 3rd with a light pull on the bars.
Starts 1st kick cold or hot and clearing it after a drop is just a case of a few kicks with decomp in then a big kick to start.
Everything bolted in fairly ok, kept the stock intake boot and tucked the carb up under the frame rail on a slight angle.
Used some poly pipe and the end of an old bmw intake to stretch to the airbox, had to bend it round a little so might try find a 650l intake to straighten it up.
Xr throttle cables/housing don't fit so used the crf unit.
100% the best thing I've done to the bike, went from a solid old tractor to something that actually gets down and boogies on the open sections, still a big heavy bastard in the single trail though.
What was that gap caused from? A washout? Glad you weren't hurt really bad, could have been much worst.
You didn't break a rib if it doesn't hurt too bad. Next time either go faster or pull the front end up and you'll skip right over that little dip.
Xrays say #6 rib broken (Not on a motorcycle, hydrofoiling: )
but who am I to argue? Doc promised it would hurt worse each day for 3 days before it started getting better, and there was nothing to do about it. Hasn't been that bad and had little effect on riding, but other motions bring out the pain real good. I'm surprised how helpful 400mg IBU is on this one.
Looked like a washout that was repaired with a short culvert and just filled in enough to cover the culvert. Blended right in to the terrain and didn't see until I was right on top of it. It's way deeper in person than apparent on the video and there is no lip at all to get a bit of a jump from. I could have powered the front end over but would have taken a huge wack in the butt on the other side. I'd almost rather take it in the front and arms and shoulders than in the back. Anyway for better or worse I tried to brake rather than power over it. Nothing hurt, nothing broke, except my mirror fell off shortly after that and now lives somewhere in the woods.
I found a spacer but then I also found the hub that I had powdercoated that it belongs to.
I have a front wheel hanging around that I thought was a XR600 but someone wrote XR650R on it. I checked and the XR600 and XR650r hubs are different. I thought the rim was bad and I could have chopped out the hub and sent it to you but upon inspection I don't see any damage to it. More crap taking up space...
If you can measure the length of your spacer I will check that against my XRL spacer. If the XRL spacer is the same or longer then you can get a L spacer and cut it to length if needed.
Hi All, whats the +- price for a full rebuild on a used circa 95 XR600? I know it will vary greatly on the condition of the bike, but im just looking for in the ball park range and general wear and tear rebuild + new top end and possibly fairing and lighting.
1000 bucks, seems there was one posted a page or two ago
Mcma I believe had it and was HRC kit
But he's talking about a bike rebuild, not an engine rebuild kit. He said fairings and lighting too. Seems like he would take it to a shop?

Nope, do it myself of course! Always been curious ´bout the xr600, coming from a 690, dr650 and even a 450RFR, the XR seems like an appealing project.
If I lived in the good ol' USA I'd take it off ya hands. There hard to find that clean where I live.
Sold it last week, took awhile don't know why seeing it was in fantastic condition.
People tend to look for shiny new bikes I think. Only some of us appreciate solid air cooled machines like that.

Dear friends, my name is Eli. I’m from Saint-Petersburg, Russia. I’m 56 years old, 40 of them I travel by bike. I bought Honda XR-600R, year of production 1993, a while ago. Excellent device which at the moment I’m getting into shape (correcting omissions of previous owners) but I have a problem. I found a manual for old XR, with drum brake, and wasn’t lucky to find it for model having by me – it was designed for USA as far as I know - frame number JH2PE0406PM800211. Have you the manual for such model or might be can advise where I can download need manual from? Because even adjusting valves I’m not sure that make this correctly as new and old models can have different valve lash.
Also one moremoment surprising to me. Hose from crankcase breather usually comes to air box but on my bike thereis a T-joint on the hose. One hose from this T-joint come down and finished with valve, the other one come up but not finished with something at all, it is just opened. I didn’t find a place at the air box where hose can come to, there are nor fitting neither a place for fitting (sometimes fittings are just broken). Could you advise some thing about this aswell? Great thanks for possible help in advance! Best regards, Eli.
