Wow, thanks for all the support and info guys! I'll give the gear inspecting a crack tomorrow as I'd also like to make sure the 'getting stuck in 3rd' is solved too.

Re the cases being split: I would say they have definitely been opened due to the ProX rod.

However I might have found where some of the metal is coming from, the inside of the counter balanced has these marks...not enough metal for everything I've found but why would they be there?




Interestingly, the marks are in each of the holes?

That looks like some of that floating material accumulated in there.

Hi - new owner here. I picked up a 2000 XR600r a few weeks ago. It's seeping oil from the valve cover gasket. I have a new oem gasket, but don't have a manual yet... Can anyone provide the valve cover bolt torque values for me? Is there anything else I need to be aware of while changing this out?

Thanks in advance!

My manual is only good for models up to '93, so I'm not gonna risk giving you bad intel, sorry
And welcome btw !!




Steve, what values do you use in adjusting the valves?
My Clymer POS manual says 0.05mm (0.002 in.) intake, and 0.10mm (0.004 in.) exhaust.

Then this guy on a Dutch forum says to go with 0.10mm intake and 0.12mm exhaust, no clue as to why...
This would only cause unnecessary valve train chatter right?

Rocker cover bolt torque. IIRC the 6mm bolts are 8-9ft lb. The 8mm center one is 12ft lb.

I don't use a torque wrench for these as I have a calibrated wrist.

I just run the small bolts down and with a stubby ratchet (4") just give a tiny bit more.

NEVER use a LB torque wrench on these bolts or you will be heli-coiling all of the holes.



I use 4/1000 intake and 5/1000 exhaust clearences.

That corresponds directly with what the guy on the Dutch forum says. Where did you get these values, does it say to use these in the Honda manual?

Intake play is twice of what my Clymer says... At this point I'm more inclined to follow your advice than Clymer's, I just find this strange

My 85-86 (87) honda service manual says 0.10 for intake and 0.12for exhaust.

Question about the Oil in the frame.

Should there be any oil on the stick when the engine and frame are COLD?

I checked it and there was just a drop on the end of the stick, put it back and gave the piggy a good shake, still no oil on the stick and I didn't see any oil as far as I could see in the frame itself.. Is this worrysome or just healthy?

4-5/1000 is what the XR650l uses and it has the same cam as the XR600.

I'm at work and don't have access to my OE service manuals until later this afternoon.

F*ing Clymer

0.10 & 0.12 it is, thanks fellas !!

Royal, if your oil seeps into the engine instead of staying in the frame downtube when parked for a while, this would indicate having to revise your oil-pump..

Oil Seal, Leak Stopper15107-MG3-000


This is the seal inside of the oil pump. I replaced the one in my XR600 and the oil never bypasses the pump anymore.

I would like that very much !! As long as it's not in Russian

Oh btw, mine's an '87 model, maybe this is a problem? I believe there is a seperate manual for these years...
