Re the Honda shop Manual for XL600 84/85. Honda UK will only supply a photocopied manual and it is in the region of 40.
I have one, it came with the bike and is extremely useful. If I knew how to do PDF's I would make it available.

Re: Onderer and Shortlife

I went with trailtech for the DC part and found an MSR AC regulator for $15 at a local shop. It made a huge difference in lighting and startup. I've taken the carbs out a couple of times. It is a pain, but not nearly as bad as my 96 tiger was.

Kenny,
Any more info on the MSR AC regulator? Such as part number? Is it a generic unit you wire in, or an application specific for an XL?

I had mentioned a newer ISD2 Supertrapp for a XR650L would fit the XL600R IF the XL already had the midpipe for the old racing series Trapp, so here are some pics of what it looks like.







Mine has a rack and it was close, but not touching.


The ISD2 and the old Racing Series it replaced.

The old one got crunched up and hole poked in it from a crash. I'm not sure what I am going to do with it, I hate to chunk it because I just put that deflector on it ($) but the deflector and most of the disc are bent up. I might pound it back out, weld in the hole and put it on one of my 3 wheelers. I took the IDS2 off of my XR650L and put the stock muffler back on it. I try to keep my bikes looking decent, but my 3 wheeler is gawd awful ugly to start with and gets the snot beat out of it, so anything goes that keeps it going.

Really a wonder why Supertrapp doesn't off offer the IDS2 for the XL600R seeing as they still offer the racing series which has the mid pipe it takes to make the IDS2 for a XR650L work.

I have the same on my XL, doesn't seem to grip much on dirt, good on the slab, though. Trying to get mine to wear so that I can replace it with something more suitable

Onderer, is that a '79 Ford pick-up or Bronco you have there?
I bought a '79 F-100 short bed when I was 21 in 1987 and had it until 2008. I loved that truck. It was my daily driver and drag racer. I installed a functional 428CJ style hood scoop and painted it Rangoon Red, which was an early '60s factory Galaxie color. For an engine, I built a 9:1 compression 460 for it and ran consistant 12:70s in the quarter. It was all kinds of fun. Scared a couple friends in it.
Unfortunately the rust that had been repaired in the mid '90s came back with a vengeance and wasn't worth fixing. Still miss that thing...

After 24k miles the cylinder still looks good and the stock rings were barely worn. I sandblasted and painted the swingarm today. Not sure where it's going, but I'm having a lot of fun with the project. I will put up pics As it starts to come together.
Don't know if you have, make sure you check the wrist pin and connecting rod. I learned this the hard way and had to tear the engine back down to replace them.

How do you take them off? The stock ones have the nut on the top so you can get a wrench on them.
