Here's a good example of an expensive XL600R. Hope it's mint!

Freaking new bike with no miles on it. If it is that good, it is worth $3200. Hopefully been in the garage under a bedsheet since 87. And it will still need to be gone through.

around the world??!?!?! ....sounds expensive...is that your oil cooler under your headlight?

anyone got any input on a "missed shift"...seems if im hard launching every now and then it will find N instead of 2nd..its quite well pissing me off and im wondering whats up.....also when she is still warming up i get a shudder from the clutch..im guessing its due to needing more heat

as expensive as you make it ;) I like to sleep in my tent cook my own dish or eat local so we will see ;) and yes thats a real oilcooler under the headlight there ;) normally used by its brother XT 600 teneré they thought of a heat problem honda did not really care :)

about your gear change problem... how many KM or miles has the bike run ?? sounds like a wear problem on the gears where they interlock.
as for the clutch maybe the cage is a bit hammered and are the clutchplates a little stuck in the hammered bits. sorry for not using the exact words but I think you will understand.
both of the things are result of some heavy use.

have fun!!

Emile

considering i got the bike pretty well dead and brought it back..god only knows how many miles..i hate to tear into it as it runs flawless aside from the shifting..and it comes and goes..usuely only present on really hard launches...

On my XL that would happen when the shifter would get loose on the spline shaft. It seemed like it had to be tightened every so often... when loose on the splines I was missing second alot.

thanks carter :)

shortlife, the loose shifter could also be the thing but putting it on different wont help better is just to fit it with some loctite on the bolt and tighten it very well.
and opening up the thing is not that much of a job just get the complete gasket set and tear it open can't go wrong.

The PO was fixing it up on the verge of a restoration (he did a whole lot of unmasked spray painting, basically made a red and white mess for me to clean up) then got tired of kickstarting it. Turns out the compression was low so it needed a piston and valves, starts great now. The tank, plastics, and seat were in nice shape so I finished the resto job. I think I paid a bit high for what I'd normally buy a poorly running bike for but seeing what they're worth I guess I did pretty good.
I just miss my bike tons. I haven't had it under my ass in, two weeks? I'm not sure. Kinda stopped counting

The return spring on my kickstarter busted along with this little plastic ring thing. Just waiting on snail mail to crawl in with the part.

They hold their value very well. I bought an '83 in 2005, that's 22 years old, for $1400. I rode it for 6 years, then determined it to be worth $1500! I sold it to one of my best bros for half price, with the promise that I can buy it back for the same price when/if he ever sells it. He used the rest of his budget to buy his son a 110 Suzuki, and they have been having tons of fun!

the shifter seems tight on there

well the fact that she doesnt leak a drop...is my primary transport right now..and aside from little quirks here and there doesnt have any issues....ie if it aint broke dont fix it lol....ive got a few engines in pieces around allready that i need to wrap up before i tear another one down
