Have you removed the clutch cover and inspected the spring loaded roller arm and the star shaped piece on the end of the drum? This is the first place to look. I have not seen a shift drum go bad. As I have said in an earlier post it's most likely bad 4/5th gears. No way to confirm but tear down. Sorry.

Hey G.O.S...

So i went into the honda shop today and asked for a jet, and they brought out one of those plastic cases with the little dividers, full of em,(just like last time) and I got a 58 fo $2.79 with tax.That seems odd that your local shop wouldn't have something similar Is the person you were dealing with there knowledgable? You know there is always the one (or two) guys at the parts counter that can't find their ass with both hands. Also as I suspected no go on mikuni jets, I was told the owner was the person I talked to and he didn't know what he was talking about. Anyways, cheers.

yes they brought out the same plastic divider case for me, but they only had the same size as the one i already had (65) and nothing smaller. the xl600 is not as common in australia so even the old guy at the parts division doesnt know that much about parts and stuff, all he ever said was 'xl600? they go hard'........yeah mate

usually its me that knows about it and its just getting them to listen closely to what im saying instead of ordering the wrong part and finding out 2 weeks later that its the wrong one. for example i told them to order the PH series keihin pilot jet and he didnt listen and wanted to order the same one i had last time (PD)

urgh!

all is good now. though!

Damn Jets

Well you get the benefit of year round riding weather, we get the benefit of better parts availability.? Yea, they had the 58 and 65. You'd think they'd have a better selection. The xl is not the only honda to use a kehien carb. (sorry about the spelling). Starting my 99' xr 600 to xl suspension swap next week. I will have 18" rear wheel and disc brake!

winter project

Currently working on my 1986 600. Thinking about the same kind of project. 18" wheel with disc, new forks, removable subframe and different air box. A "mule" if you will. Based on a flat tracker with down turned exhaust and some cargo capacity. For simplicity, run equal size tires front and rear.

But, now that I have the head out and found the culprit of the leak. Rocker adjuster let loose and ate the crank. Big project is held up by the task at hand.

gorilla your jet feels pretty good, starts good when cold and warm, the real test will be starting when its at 110degrees, but im confident that it will be great.

going for a ride tomorrow with a bunch of boy racers on their 250 race replicas (ie: posers) no doubt the XL will own them. also put on a new chain and sprocket, gear lever and airbox tweak so she is ready for the glorious Australian summer.

and what a beautiful summer it is looking to be!

Good. before my friend messed with the air screw, It was 1-2 kicks half choke cold, and 1 kick warm. And like I said previously, I could have done it in flip flops it was so easy. But never had it in 110 degree temps. Your winters are pretty mild too? It's about 15 degrees F here, so riding is not so favorable right now. But tinkering is. Starting my tear down tomorrow. Have fun on your ride(probably don't need t tell you that). Take care.

No no, i mean that when the temp gauge is reading 110 celsius, its a bit hard to start. thats 230F.

that said i have run the bike in ambient temps of 50(C)+, which is 120F without it overheating, ahhh the luxury of an oil cooler.

over heating is anything past 120C (240F) in my book.

well, if you and the rest of the world would just switch over to the standard system of measurement there would have been no confusion!
