This is what I will probably have to do if I don't get another stator cover and I want to use a Ricky Stator.
That is what the people at Ricky Stator told me when I asked about fitting their 85 XR600 stator to my 84 XR500.

But you don't have a stator like our USA XR500s. Yours looks like a XL600.

So I'm guessing that the Ricky Stator will fit your stator cover without having to do any modifications to the grommet.

You will find out when you get the new stator. Don't loose your old stator grommet

OH! I'm an old fool!
Sorry, I understood the terms (names.
We are talking about replacing the sealing of the cable stator (swap the grommet).

The grommet stator my XR500R is not used, the cable is isolated sealant in the cover. The grommet stator remained outside of the engine.
You are assured of the possibilities of using the cover of the stator XL(XR) 600 for XR500r
Cover stator XL(XR) 600 has an additional bolt near the axis of the clutch?

Thanks Ivan

No, I'm not sure I'll be able to use the XL/R600 cover. Now that you've mentioned the extra bolt, I've spent some time looking at photos of stator covers and left engine cases on eBay. Now I'm not sure if I can seal up the MG2 stator cover to my XR500 case.

I saw the grommet external to your cover in the photo you posted. But it didn't occur to me that its supposed to be that way. So you do have a MG3 cover after all.

I suppose you could get the upgrade Ricky stator and glue on the wiring harness with silicone sealant. I'll have to consider that mounting method.

If you wanted a grommet to fit your XR500 stator cover, you would need a stator like I have. But that's too expensive for just the rubber grommet

I've got other projects on my todo list right now, but hopefully I can get a new 200 Watt stator before the riding season starts back up and I'll reexamine my plans then.

Hi guys!
I got a lot of OEM HONDA parts for my motor XR500R.
I got the crankcase gasket and gasket cover of the generator from the XR600R -1985! (These gaskets for XR500R are not available for purchase).
I made the fitting of gaskets.
We can use the gaskets XR600R for XR500R!!!!!!

How much did you have to cut the XR6 gaskets to get them to fit the XR5?

Do you happen to have a photo showing the differences?

Hope you get it all back together soon

I'm Sorry!
I had to create a repository for my photos.
This is the seal of the housing.

Gasket cover of the generator.

We must cut off only the tail, and the construction will turn into a gasket XR500R!


Hurrah! It works! ! ! I can insert photos!!!!

Hi guys!
In Saint-Petersburg returns to the heat (it's spring). The first day of the heat and the sun.
I had a little bit of time for measuring and fitting new parts for my project. It is a few photos of swing arm xr650l installation in the frame xr500r.


We can use the wheel XR500R with the drum brake. Should mechanical completion of (small) only and longer axis.

But I want to go to a disc brake.

Details will be later, when all the parts are ready.

Just a bump for the XR500 thread. Elk hunting on my 81 XR500 in Utah last fall.

All three sets of XR5 carbs I have came with a 58 sized pilot. One set of carbs is off of my 83, the other two are 84s. You can tell the difference between the 83 and 84 carbs because the 84s have an extra vent hose. I think there is a misprint for this listed in the Clymer & Honda manuals I have which show 55 for the pilot of the RFVC XR5. Otherwise it would be a very strange coincidence that all three of my pilots, from different previous owners, are 58s.

I'm above 5k feet and most all of my rides are up from here. I dropped my main jets down a size and I've been happy with my plug readings since the change. My engine is all stock with the stock exhaust and factory insert (the insert is larger than the XR6 insert).

At the time I bought the main jets I also checked out getting a smaller pilot, but the biggest size I could find without a special order for the same type of jet was a 53. So I tried it out...........one time

That was in the middle of summer and its the only time I've seen a 300 deg F temp on the vapor while idling at a long stoplight. So I went back to the 58 and have been happy since then.

I'm asking which type not what size. I have slow jets for the PWK/PJ carbs but I'm pretty sure they don't fit the XR5 carbs. These are the types available.
