Capt E,
Looks like you have a pair of budding road race and off road racers in the making.
Great pic.

Enjoy.

There's any AC LED for my XR?


Plug & play... no battery needed... plenty of light... great wind protection also...

a fool and his $$$$

Time for an introduction - bought a project - '95 XR600R street legal and currently licensed. knew it was gonna be a rebuild, didn't know it was gonna be as much of one as I do now.

Haven't ridden dirt in 25 years, been riding Sportbikes, need to save that nonsense for the track, so I got this to do some fire roading and easy trail riding.


3rd gear is jacked up, little end of the rod is galled, found lotsa nice copper shavings in the oil tank screen, frame needs some welding (kickstand bracket) and looks like it's been welded on before. Suspension feels good, so that's a plus. Pretty much every bearing is gonna need to be replaced.

Cam & Rockers don't look too bad, though there is a lot of carbon on the valves & piston crown. Imagine at least new valve springs, piston, rings, rod etc. Should have done a leak-down test before we tore it apart, but the valves don't appear to leak (sprayed a bunch of carb-clear in the ports and nothing wept by the valves)

Any and all advise, recommendations, pointers etc, gladly accepted!

here's a pic of the beast after we stripped it.

there are several experts on this bike over at Thumper talk, they know everything about those engines, and i mean everything.

this is the 2000-2007 Xr650r thread.

Shoot, mine runs around 220-230 all day long. I decided I needed to try to put the thermostat back in it. Hopefully it helps regulate the flow and keep the fluid in the rads longer.

I have my fingers crossed, I have a Spal fan I need to install, and next step after this is fluidynes.

It can reach 220 but shouldnt be that hot all or most of the time. Putting in the thermostat will not change the time the fluid is in the rads. I'd take it out again except outside temps are less than 5 C (40 F)...

Kind of a question with no answer, but how mych do you guys normally budget for a full teardown and rebuild? My bike doesn't 'need' much, just every bearing needs re-greased, fork oil needs changed, chain and sprokets are due, wiring needs cleaned up, etc. Just a bunch of little stuff. I'm thinking by that point I'm not very far off from taking it down to the frame and painting it, plus addressing anything else I may find along the way.

Think I can do it for under $500 if I stay out of the motor, with no suspension work? I'm laid off so I have plenty of time with little money right now. Or maybe wait until I have money, just do what needs done and plan on a rebuild next winter.

If you have the time to do all the work yourself it will cost you very little money , its the labour what hikes the cost , the parts are cheap . 500 should be more than enough .
