Hey guys. Wondering how many of you would be interested in this.
The other day a buddy and I made a spacer to eliminate the stock speedo drive on the hub. I installed a trail tech vapor and then my speedo/trip cable snapped on my 97 xr600r. so I started looking around online and only found one company making them. Wasn't impressed, didn't state what alloy it was made of, no real dimensions or description other than it was raw color and it fit an xr.
If enough of you guys want one we're thinking about doing a run (20+ people would have to be interested in buying one). It would be raw aluminum. made of QUALITY aluminum. Most likely 7075. Made in the USA. And we're not looking to make a huge profit. They'll be pretty cheap. Were just wanting an excuse to hang out and drink beer and make some metal chips. Only profit we want is our beer paid for and maybe some gas money for the run to get materials and tooling.
Here is a picture.
Please let me know if you're interested or if you want one and we will be able to make you one. Thanks for reading!
ALSO! This is a 97. So I assume it's the same hub since 1990? This will only fit if it's the same hub as a 97 stock honda xr600r hub. Someone please post the crossovers if you know it.
With this spacer you have to do nothing more than remove the drive assembly and slide this on. You do not have to remove the prongs in the hub that drive the speedo assembly. The spacer fits perfect as the drive did. If interested PM me or respond here. Thank you!

FYI... The XR600 front axle diameter is 17mm from 1993 thru 2000. Prior to that the axle was 15mm.
