Well, she runs strong but has more leaks. Including, shifter, kick starter, and stator cover. I plan on restoring this bike totally within the next 5 years. How much money are we talking for the engine? Maybe new sleeve, piston/ rings, valves, and especially shifter shaft as it is stripped pretty badly. Parting out is not an option. She will be ready for cross country. Even if it means $2000... I will do most of the work myself. Other than gears and what not. I don't think the gears need replaced but you never know. Just need a rough estimate.

Whoa! Talk about a flash back. I bought one of those new off showroom back then. Had the same leak within a couple months. Bike took me to south america and AK. Was stolen when I got back then 6-8 months later police called...they recovered the bike. Needless to say she wasn't pretty but rode it for a few more yrs.

Good to see your going to keep yours running. I've owned at least 6 more of those Hondas over the yrs. Picked up a 95 a couple yrs ago and restored it....still have it. I spent less than $2500 and that included purchase price.

How can I install this the rest of the way? Got it from Xr's only and is advertised to fit.

Since the bike is still fully functioning, I put on some bark busters:

That red crap is filter oil for k&n air filters. I personally would NEVER run a k&n on a bike that sees dirt. Hopefully your filter was not run dry....

That figures. Well, it was run dry and not my choice. How do you put it on or in? Also what am I missing for the factory setup? I didn't buy it myself but apparently it was from xrs only website.

Leaking petcock.

There is a rubber disc inside the petcock and it dries out over time. Two choices. Replace the petcock assy or look up an early Goldwing petcock and the parts are available separately. You would have to drill the keeper rivets out and tap for hold down screws.

The OE OIL SEPARATOR assy is missing. See if you can fine one on E-Bay

Mount a late XR600 chain slide. You will need to drill and tap for the two mounting screws. Your model slider is no longer available.
