Nice!

That is pretty cool. too bad they are out of stock right now. I will try and get one when available. But I would still like to know if and what years XRL wheel would fit. The wheels from the XR roller I bought are kinda beat up. Thanks!

Anyway, this is the latest pic of my XR6, nearly done, just tyres and sprockets/chain to go now.

Might need to rebuild the carby, see how it goes first.....
Y'know, we have almost the same bike.

1988 xr600

I've come into a 1988 XR600 that I'll be parting out if anyone is interested in anything.

CHEAP, I want it gone.

The motor is spoken for. Two sets of carbs.

For the same price (I think) you can get the Tusk clutch kit from Rocky Mountain and it has both the friction plates and the steel plates. A better deal in my opinion.

Installation is a breeze - 30 minute job.

Hey All - It's been a while since I've been in here, good to be back

My XR is still kicking strong and is in use almost daily. It's been 300 hours since I put in piston rings and lapped the valves, and the bike hasn't missed a beat since. It starts and runs flawlessly, and the valves haven't needed a single adjustment!

Anyway... I have a variety of issues, but 2 are important.

1. The rear brake pivot point has developed play, which makes the brake harder to actuate. The frame and pin both have some wear and I'm not sure if there's anything I can do about it. Maybe cut off the tab, fab a new one and weld it on? Maybe there's a modern style rear brake pedal with a a bearing that can be retrofit? Have any of you remedied this?



2. The clutch pull is too hard, it's harder than it used to be. I would love to lighten the clutch and also lengthen the effective motion at the lever. Do the clutch actuator rods get worn and start creating friction? I'm not sure where the friction is in the system, it's probably in the arm that goes down through the side cover. (It's not the cable). Has anyone mated up a hydraulic clutch to your XR? It seems like it would be pretty simple to do with one of the Magura kits.

XR600R Stator

Does anyone have a spare stator lying around?
I need one or two to experiment with.
They will be cut down and rewound so an old faulty stator is fine.
Preferably near Melbourne Australia.

Mine is an '88 too. I bought it about a month ago. Not sure about the size of the tank. I think 6 gallons? It came with two others. Both smaller. One is OEM.

It has the 18" rear, but he gave me a gold 17" too with a brand new tire mounted.

I haven't had the time to ride it much yet. Hopefully soon.

I would install a bronze bushing in a machine shop, restriffiting a bearing would mean youd take too juch material off, plus the bushing can be easily pressed in and off to replace

you could also sleeve the brake pin...either way works...however the pressed in bushing in the frame makes for a better solution

I had to do this for a worn swingarm hole on my frame
