Honda XR650l Engine Build 2.0

OK, I have had this engine around here for a while and I figured it was time to build it up and see if anyone would be interested. I have been building up to today's assembly for quite some time. I almost got it all done but the Let's Go Out To Dinner bell rang.

Here is what I got done so far.

Bead blasted the cases and painted them with Dupli-Color Ceramic Engine gloss black.

I had to clean the cases, plug all of the bolt holes, blast, pull plugs, wash/clean cases, chase EVERY bolt hole to confirm that there was no blast media left behind. Hours I tell ya, hours of work.




New counter balancer bearings.



Countershaft and shift shaft seals.



New neutral switch.



New Pro-X connecting rod. Work performed by Engine Dynamics.



New updated shift shaft return spring (on right).



I chased the edges of the case gaskets with a Sharpie marker so the gasket wouldn't stand out against the black cases.



New XR600 countershaft, NX650 second and fifth gears



Lower end assembled.



OK, here is where I just got into wrenching and forgot to take pictures.

Wiseco 101mm, 10,5 cr piston. Cylinder and head bead blasted. Valve job, new seals. I had the stator cover, clutch, and rocker covers powder coated wrinkle flat black. The shop painted the valve inspection caps silver. They couldn't powder coat the countershaft cover because it's plastic and it would melt in the oven. You might notice the polished allen head bolts holding the engine together.

Cam in with new chain. Cover just sitting there as I still have to install all of the rocker arms.






They even taped off the RFVC on the rocker cover







Kicker. It's got a KICKER




OK, That's it for now. I have some more work to do before this engine is all wrapped up and ready to.

Oh BTW... It's FOR SALE...

Lemme give you my compliments on this build , 1st class / grade A in my book , but you know that already . That damn thing sho would look nice in something of mine .

And I'm not just saying that cause I owe you $$ ,And a apology for 1 of the peeps I told to pm you about a build either .I warned you


I'll get around to my end pretty soon, or longer . Unless I die of stress , or a gunshot or 2 to the head .

Of course not from myself , just from 1 of the asses I've had to get on lately , I've seem to be doing that quite a bit the last few months .

I think I'm gonna have to attend a few Anger Management classes .

Now , since thats over , whatcha got for a 650R that we can add-on to the bill that can hopefully be a revolving Acct with 0% interest .

his work is always gold

a beautiful motor!

Question though, why put the XR600 countershaft instead of 650L ?

So a kicker can be installed. Honda doesn't machine the right side end of the XRL shaft to allow the use of the intermediate gear that is needed to go between the kicker and clutch hub for turning the engine over.

Notice the different size of the end of the shafts and also the oil supply hole for the gear:
