Thanks.

My CB is only a 450, so it couldn't wheele on a dare.

I don't want to get my hopes up too much. Something can always happen.

I was thinking about a KLR, and it would probably be better for riding on the street, but I've done the KLR thing a few years ago. The thought of the weight and the lack of power steered me to the Big Red Pig.

Although this one seems to have some after market parts on it. It has the Acerbis tank, a red rear fender, a white front and a blue seat. So, it's not really a Big RED Pig. It's more of a Big Patriotic Pig.

Once it's home, I'll post pics of our "stable". My wife has a KLX250 and an SV650.

My other ride is a Concours14. An XR600 would make things complete.

seat cover

If anyone still has the original seat cover for an '88 XR6, does it have a rear logo????

Stator wiring question



I finally got a stator for my '88 XR600R.

Less than 90 days after getting the bike!

I bought the RickyStator unit and am trying to install/plug it in today.

The challenge for an electronics-challenged guy like me is that I don't know how to convert/interpret what I see to make the switch from old to new.



This bike has a battery & all the lights. So I think it should be dual output 100watts each.

That would suggest I use the wiring diagram on the upper left.

What I can't figure out is how to relate the green/white pairs to the original pairs in the 4-plug connector. How do I work that out? I have a digital multimeter that I could use to assist me - if I knew what I was trying to do. s

And once I figure that out, do I:

Cut the old connector off and add it to the new wiring harness?

Or

Cut the old connector off the wiring harness and add the four individual connectors to the wiring harness.

XR 600 Frame guards?

Looking for the frame guards, plastic style. Not the metal plate covers. Anybody have some, or where to get some? Thanks.

I got a bit perplexed as well when I got my Ricky for my XL.
I ended up tracing the old stator wiring back from the 4 pin plug a bit, and found a heap of connectors that I could plug the Ricky into.
Just check the wiring on your old stator from the 4 pin plug.

Plug and play...all good

So, I went down to the local signwriting shop today.
I have some original 1988 XR600 tank stickers. I wanted not to use the originals (who knows what the glue is like after all this time), so I got them to scan and reproduce the stickers on modern vinyl.

The reproductions are printed, not silkscreened as the originals were, but look pretty good anyhow. The red on the reproduction is a little "redder", but that is as close as they can get by printing. And seeing as how they are NLA from Honda, I'm not complaining.

The original is on top, reproduction below.

Lens assembly is the only thing I didn't make. Friend of mine made the hoop, I've made the ring around the lens out of aluminum, and the rest is made out of the baby-chair .

Tried it last night in my yard, works great. But here's the question. I've put the 60/55 bulb in it, and it varies in intesnity just a bit off the idle. I've replaced the rear bulb with a low power LED, so I figured it's the same power alltogether. What do you think? Can it doo any damage to the stator?
