XR Reliability

The XR600 is an anvil of a motorcycle. WAY WAY under stressed. I had a 660cc kit in mine (10+ years) until an oiling problem killed it. Now it has an XR's Only 654cc piston. There is nothing like a BIG THUMPER. A cam, carb, pipe and away you go... Mine is 654cc, mega cycle cam and rockers, white bros. big tube (old style) header, supertrapp (long megaphone) race pipe and an FCR carb. YEAH BABY !!!! That's what were talking about. Good oil is all it gets. No noise. Easy to start. YEEEHAWWWW
