Well, I hope it's only his clutch. He needs to take it out and do WFO shifts from 4th to 5th and see if it does the same thing. When I've had clutches going south that's where they'll slip the worst.

I'm officially the 4th owner but when I went to title and register the bike as a street legal DS bike I tracked it down to the original owner and he explained the bike had been stolen from him back in 1990. He was totally cool and just signed over the old title to me, mostly he was please to finally find out about what happened to his forest friend.

Over the last couple years that I've owned it, I've noticed that occasionally it will slip or feel like teeth are missing in 3rd gear as I'm accelerating hard to 4th gear. I only notice it on the pavement and only if I'm really pushing it, its almost a feeling of very slight wheel spin on loose dirt, then it catches and runs fine. And it only usually happens once while in 3rd going to 4th. I've honestly never tried to just ride it in 3rd to see if I can get it to slip repeatedly either.

I'm a little hesitent to pull the motor and split the cases to find out that nothing is really wrong but I was mostly wondering if this might be a common problem for our big pigs. Anyone else feel this happens to them? I've checked the oil every time I've changed it and nothing metal is showing itself but again, this could have happened years ago with a previous owner.

Thanks for your input. Later Travis
Been here, done that. My 1985 XR600R was slipping in and out of 3rd when it was under load. My advice? What ever you do, do not buy used "flea-bay" parts to use as replacements. Just order new gears and replace the couple worn ones that are causing the problem.

While I was in there, I replaced all of the gaskets and seals also so that I would not have to worry about drips or leaks for another 25 years.

Here are some pics of the VERY minor rounding of the edges that will be all that it takes to get those gears to disengage with each other.

Thanks everyone for the suggestions. I'll start at the clutch but I'm thinking its more likely a gear issue, but I could be wrong. And yes if the engine comes apart, she will be getting a 628cc kit and a stage 2 cam. I've also been playing with the idea of pulling the motor and dropping it into a Honda CB-1 chassis my buddy is going to give me. We're playing with the idea of a big single cafe racer. Hooligan bike. The CB-1 was a race bike that the class was eliminated and he had spent well over $15K just on the engine so he broke it up and sold the engine to another racer for $8K and kept the rolling chassis. It should be fun. We'll see.

Thanks again for the suggestions.

The 600s (and also the old 350s) are noted for 3rd gear failure. If the 3rd gear dogs come off, major damage results, ask me how I know. The first sign is while in 3rd, the tranny slips in and of gear quickly under acceleration like the clutch is slipping.

Ok I'm back, and now with a Staintune pipe that fits my 88-90 twin headers.
I got it for a steal due to the dint in it, which according to a couple of muffler guys, won't affect the flow that much. I have priced getting the can reskinned but it's worth more than what I paid, and frankly would be just burning money. I have better things to buy!

Heres the before and after I hit it lightly with a wire wheel and scourer.




With the full system:



Finally, installed:



Also I believe that christian wanted a front on photo of my headers?



Cheers,

john

nice, ship overseas? jajaja

THATS AWESOME john

very happy for you

let us know what your jetting ends up being and how you like that staintune...im very jealous

times are rough once again down here, I had to sell my fmf powercore and am trying to sell other parts and bits for the baby and tests and all that jazz

Im very envious of your exhaust! jajajaja

for now I have the stock system and thanks so much for the pic, looks just like mine, its just the angle that threw me off

a real question however is this...how much jiggle room do you have at the ports on the head in relation to the pipe diameters...mine seem to have waaaaay to much room for error

I was thinking of making some copper doughnuts that would fit on the outside flange of the headers so they center nicely on the ports

did you have this issue too?

enjoy the bike btw

christian

Do any of you know if the passenger pegs this guy fitted are commercially available? (or something similar)

Or is this custom work ?

You could have a XR650l shock. My XR600 has the knob but my XRL doesn't have it.

Possible, but in my opinion unlikely, from what I know there are NO xr650L's in the netherlands..
