Axle

Sorry but it is the 1993 and forward that has the 17mm axle. Just like the XR650l that came out in 1993. 1992 and back has a 15mm axle.

In XR600, I've had an '88, '92, and '00.

This is the gospal truth

I've just gone through this. A mission to swap out wheels on a 91 didn't work out and the project is still currently stalled.
All suppliers I spoke with stated they couldn't supply me with a set of wheels.
Then cycle gear said no problem, 91-2000 are all the same. I got all the ducks in a row for a saturday transformation only to find something is not right in regards to fitting the front wheel.

Oh, they said they'd make it right and make me happy...
But a new to me bike that I've only put 9 miles on due to the fact it sits in the garage on a stand with out a wheel...
Let's just say....unhappy.
Cycle gear has sent off the assembled warp 9 wheel to utah along with my original bashed front wheel.
In order to do what's quickest and easiest they first tried to find a set of bearings that will fit a warp 9 hub and a 15mm axel. There is no such bird...whatso ever.
So the next thing is to take the original hub and fit a warp 9 rim and stainless oversize spokes. Cycle gear is to supply a new rotor. That still doesn't get me new bearings and I may get a store credit. But I'm out a back up oem front wheel. There's no way to be happy.
I had my heart set on a matching pair of new hubs and wheels, so... I just bought a used set of forks and an axel from a 94xr600l, Now after I scrape the dough together I'll have to buy another warp 9 front.
When that happens I intend to just swap out fork tubes in the clamps on the 91 with the 94 forks. Don't tell me this wont work...or...do tell me before I buy another front wheel.
Here's a repeat from an earlier post. just got the 91, just got all the ducks in a row.
Next day after fitting the rear with no trouble I find the front didn't jive.


Still waiting for a front wheel so I can further determine what's up with the shifting between 4th+5th, and do a leakdown test.
I've pretty much come to the conclusion that I'll need to run my 1992 motor in the 91 xr for this season while I sort out the 91 motor.

That may be true, but even an amateur lathe operator could easily a sleeve to allow the (I assume overall larger) Warp 9 bearings work with your stock axle. It probably would have been cheaper than them shipping the wheels to Utah.

Axle

Better yet just but a late XR600 or XR650L axle and spacer. The speedometer drive also if your going to use it. Otherwise the odo delete spacer.

my mate has a 97 & i have a 92 his axle is smaller diameter. *** the diameter of the axle differs were the thread is & the fork where it threads in OR where the where the speedo drive end of the axle is *** i cant remember exactly it was a few years ago when we found out.
speedo drive included is different in the ID diameter also.



the reason i found this out was my speedo drive shat itself so my mate said use his until i get a new one that's were we found out when fitting the 97 to a 92. so easy fixed i use his axle. LOL no go either then noticed the problem of the axle & the fork leg where it screws in.

Ya, I talked with warp 9 'bout that, they make all their spacers, you've got the inner spacer tube in there too. I figured it could be done, he said otherwise.
Cycle Gear is footing the bill to make it right. No shipping...waiting.

Looks like someone swapped your buddy's forks for the older style. All the axle part numbers are the same from 93-00 44301-KAE-870

both of us bought our bike from new
maybe the AU was different to the US ?
1992 was with the blue backings & red seat/white block letters 600R
1997 was with the purple backings & red/purple seat

I'm cleaning out my garage of XR600 stuff. I've been hoarding parts in preparation for the zombie apocalypse which I've now decided isn't going to happen.

I put my spare 1987 XR600R motor in the flea market with other stuff like 1991-up shocks, stators, and other bits to follow next week.

Quick question:

I'm putting heavier Race Tech springs in my '96XR6 and the instructions ask if they are internal or external top out springs?

Any insight?

Thanks.

Question for the experts

I'm a novice mechanic ( i can adjust valves and change fork oil) but am absolutely ignorant about electrics. My question is this: I want to put a key switch on my Xr6 and was thinking of taking the one off my son's crf100. I think that the key switch just interrupts the circuit when off like a kill button but i'm not sure. The switch on my son's 100 has two wires coming out the back. Could I put it on my XR6 inplace of the kill button. Anyone have some insight for my dumb ass.

That is what I did on my XR6. It basicly makes the ignition think the stop button is pressed. I kept my kill button so I didn't have to fumble for the key while riding. Keeps someone from jumping on, kicking it to life , and riding off. It does not keep them from putting it in a pickup and driving off, but it makes me feel better.
