    Ok, I'm going to pick up a basket case 1993 XR600 today for $275. The bottom end is still together, and that's it. It may or may not have a cam. My plan was to pull some parts for my bike, like the kicker stuff and maybe the first gear in the transmission, then sell off the rest. Any thoughts on other components that would be upgrades for the mighty XRL?

    j not so cool,

    Just letting you know the Vegas massacre can hit close to home to ANYONE in the USA.

    I belong to a off road/dirt bike club over in Marin (Marin County Motorcycle Association and my club number is 111) which is north of San Francisco.

    A club member and his wife were at the concert. He is a SFPD officer. When the shooting started he, his wife and her friend ran to cover. In one of the breaks of fire he told the girls to run as he went to tend to some of the people that had been shot.

    She was shot.

    She is dead.

    Left a couple kids with no mom.

    Let me put this in the most sincere way I know of.

    F*** YOU A******

    Truly awful. Terrible. Hope your club people can come together and help each other through these what must be terrible times.

    Wrap up yet another engine build.

    I have one of my engines posted here and on Craigslist. I have received quite a few call on the engine and a couple conversations have led to me rebuilding their engines. Olaf contacted me early last month. Monday he dropped off his engine for one of my standard rebuilds. I tore into the engine Tuesday morning and I found the cam, rockers and head center journal roached. With these items added to the rebuild cost he decided to buy one of my pretty engines. I am giving him a trade in on the dead engine core.

    Just up from the garage on another wrap.

    Thought I'd try something else besides black engine cases and black wrinkle side and rocker covers.

    Silver with smooth satin black covers. I had the lower end assembled and on the bench waiting for a buyer to tell me what they wanted.

    So Olaf contacts me this morning and asks me if I want the rest of the bike that the engine is out of. He is buying the above engine for his other bike.

    Yep, I'll take it.

    My machinist Mike at Engine Dynamics has expressed interest in a XRL. Looks like I'll be building him a bike.
