Sure, a lot of parts will interchange between the models, but a lot wont. Ask me how I know.
I'm currently rebuilding my XL600RMG, and have already been caught ordering XL600 parts when I actually need XR600 parts.
I suppose if the RMG/LMF wasn't sold in your part of the world, its largely irrelevant, though might be an issue if buying parts from overseas.
SORRY!! I was totally wrong, must have had a massive brain fart!!
You could still buy the parts you need and have them posted over though
If you see me coming, better step aside. A lot of men didn't, a lot of men died, all because of my shit brakes.
