NICE MOD! Did you just cut an OEM oil line? Do you think it makes a difference in flow or volume?

thanks Jeff!

there is a reason I did not modify the banjo bolts and that is in order to maintain stock flow or flow of volume if you will

If I had a bad ass hrc pump and reversed oil orifices in the case then yeah its recomended to drill out the upper banjo bolt holes equal size and match them to the LOWER banjo bolt hole sizes

the reason I did it this way is

1. there are too many bends and kinks and dents in the stock oil pipe and its also metal and more prone heat, its also thin!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

mine was rubbed by a loose old header and I got tired if the small weep it had.

2. this braided line is extra strong and the internal diameter is the same as the external diameter of the original pipe...so you do gain a little more volume from lower banjo to upper banjo but Im sure it has no effect on how much gets to the head, as that is determined by rpm and restriction mostly in the upper banjo bolt hole.

if this line were all metal then it would kind of act like a heat sink before entering the head which would be very cool in my mind and something I would love to do down the road...

so far so good after 100miles now and city driving too,

New XR600R owner here.

I have been given a broken '88 and have to fix to ride.

There's no spark when I kick it through. Tried numerous times - in the dark.

A buddy of mine has an '86 XR600R - and I was going to swap the CDIs to see if that's the problem. But I have looked at a couple of replacement houses and they all show date ranges of 1988 to 2000.

Can I use the older CDI to test for spark?

I have a CDI you can try

It's probably the pulse generator

hey nixels welcome fellow 88er

ok
first try stator resistance: 230-320ohms

then try primary and secodnary coil resistance
the try cutting and snipping some nre wire off the sparkplug lead and rescrew the honda cap back on

then if nothing try replacing the sparkplug cap resistor with a metal rod

if none of this THEN try cdi as its the only one you really cant diagnose other than by switching a known good one

if its not electrical then try other stuff like compression check, leakdown test, valves etc...

good luck and welcome man!

read STEVES rebuild thread for a step by step rebuild if you have to do so.

im running 3.00 -21 and 510 - 18, 460 is good, ive run 410 in the past but only cause they were cheap as
