Making a Taller XL600
I bought Achtung's XL600 (see post #21) and am looking forward to some good years on it.
Since I am Tallerman, I need a taller seat, an extended shift lever, and taller bars.
I bought a worn out seat and new cover on eBay and will build my own custom taller seat.
I also scored a cheap XR600 front fork and triple clamp ($70 on ebay). I will rebuid them and probably put in emulators. According to the gurus on Thumpertalk, that's a better/cheaper option than converting to USD forks. I will try to install a taller/better rear shock but am in no hurry.
I would like to hear even more ideas/watchouts for making the XL fit my taller frame. (Don't suggest a different bike, I already have a R12GSAdv and a DRZ400E--soon for sale.)
