Changed my clutch basket and primary gears to 650L ratio today to see what it is like. Was 4750 RPM in fifth, now 4350 RPM's at 65MPH
Not much difference otherwise, still 1st and second throttle roll on wheelies. About the same as changing one tooth on C/S as far as I can tell. Although numerically it calculates differently. it feels like it widened the trans ratios a bit. More on that when I drop the final ratio close to where overall ratio was for comparison.

Changed my clutch springs back to stock, (the real reason for going in there) feels sooo much better at the lever, no slippage detected at all.

Today I got my aftermarket CDI and put it on.

I thought while I was in there I would check the stator ignition wire for resistance. Manual says it should be 300-500 ohms. I have over 100. Since it is an aftermarket stator and seems to work good should I be worried? I would hate to fry the new CDI. My pulse generator should be here Thursday so I am not firing it up again until it is done.

Gots a new problem today The yamaha is almost done so I went ripping aroung on the xl for a bit this am to come back home to an oil leak Not a happy camper not just got one almost fixed and now the baby has to go down, My question is the oil seems to be comming from bening the front sproket, can I pull the sproket and slam a new seal in or do I need to split cases and get a bearing for it along with the seal the sproket has almost 1/4 turn of play in it now but does not feel like it has any up and down movement to it

Counter shaft seal is easy to replace. Stab it with an ice pick and pry it out. Be sure to clean the counter shaft prior to removing the bad seal as when you install the new seal you don't want to drive any crap in to the engine. Look at how the seal sits before you remove it and be sure to set the new seal at the same depth. It can go in quite a ways and rub on the bearing inside if your not careful. Oil up the new seal before you install it.

Oil the outside too? No adhesive?

Oil inside and outside. Helps it slide in. No glue.

I would skin the outer surface of the seal where it presses into the case with a little sealant, personally. I would also put tape over the CS splines before installation to make sure the lip doesn't get nicked upon installation.

I would also recommend a genuine Honda seal, not aftermarket.

Well I picked up my barrel yesterday after getting the new liner bored. Looks good. Also the new Pro X rod kit arrived from the USA, so dropped it off with the crank to my crankshaft guy. Hoping to get it back this week, and start reassembly.
Still no idea where the shrapnel came from that stuffed my motor. Been suggested to look at the old piston for a piece missing, now if l can only find it!
As for the balancer gear being out of alignment, lm just going to make a new mark where the old mark would have been and run with that. Nobody lve spoken to has ever successfully removed this gear so l'll just leave it alone and run it about half a tooth out and hope for the best.

That's some sort of old school Honda works racing part. I doubt anyone's got one of those. Otherwise it just looks like a stock skid plate with added side protection. Probably welded on. A good fabricator could do that sort of thing, dunno for how much through...

thanks Carter.

im just dreaming anyway. im still doing the basics to my 87 xl600r, but i couldnt resist a blast and ceramic coat on the header. oh and some sidewinder ti-moly sprockets and chain. uni airfilter

then just a good ol DE-CRUSTING, but there so many nooks and crannies its very difficult. i keep finding surfaces with vintage virgin crust layers.

my goal is to spend an inappropriate amount of money on my old honda and i'm succeeding so far!
