Of course the 600R CDI probably has a rectifier stage 1st thing, and 100VDC would probably work.

maybe an XRL CDI has a magic wire to cut (internally, after de-potting)? Prob. too much to hope for.

Anyone have a CDI schematic for either?

If someone would donate me a dead 600R CDI and a dead XRL CDI, I'd take 'em apart and try to pin them out.

Damn, there's the long-lost never-done XRL upgrade part, the CDI...

Did you ever do this?
I have a 650L CDI and a 600 CDI shouldn't be too hard to come by. If you are willing, I will get the parts to you. Let me know.

I've never played around with it, I looked up some parts a while ago though.

I still have the stock exhaust, piston, cam so there's a lot I'd need to do before needing a better CDI.

You can get what's basically inverter on a chip.

I bought a xr600 because of articles just like this one

Hello,
I was reading articles all over the net etc on the xr600, It has a huge following all over the world, I wanted a dualsport that was somthing different than my other bikes, i can plate anything in arizina ( one of my ktm 300,s is plated )
Anywas I scored a 1998 that was a garage find with only 250 miles on it. I ride out of my house and really put bikes to the test , I have two modern 450,s and two late model 300,s, both of what many say are the best bikes ever. I made a loop I named after ernsburg because of its difficulty. my friends thought i was nuts taking the xr6 on it, I was blown away by how good the bike did. the engine and suspension are amazing, No i can not go as fast as my ktm450 etc, but it willl go basically anywhere the others will, just not as fast. I do think it is incredibly comfortable though. For rocky roaads and fast sections, on a real long day, watch out, the thing is a cadi in that,
Next time i go to baja, its gonna take front seat to my newer bikes !!!! even my 450 xcf,yz450f and 300,s

The Big 6 took the podium at Baja 12 years in a row. That's a remarkable winning streak.

Not afraid of the weight or power thing!

I haven't the opportunity to ride a XR650L or a XR650R but am interested in upgrading for more power and better suspension modern features.

Is the XR650L significantly more powerful than my XR600R?
I know the XR650R will be, especially uncorked but how much more?

I would be looking for more hp for road and higher speed off road stuff.

I guess what I am looking for is whether the XR650L is a sufficient upgrade from my XR600R or should I pony up for a XR650R?
I would have to find a blue plated one as it is getting to be a bitch to plate off road bikes now.

All experience/opinions welcome please.
loved my 600r s.....LOVE my 650r try one,am sure you will see what i mean!

I finished building this bike a couple of weeks ago and it went to it's new owner last Saturday.




I finished this just the other day. It's for sale.
