Yes, i've thought about that when i begun to gather info about the XT600Z engine that didn't use the frame as an oil tank. Below the battery theres enough room for a custom built one and im thinking on going for the DR650 and grizzly 2 into 1 intake manifold


Hell yeah Highside!

Vander, with a bigger rear wheel that SR would be perfect Nice shocks, didn't know that brand though, im going to think about it. Could use a fork upgrade aswell... it is good with this engine but with the extra weight of the 600 it is going to be too soft The same goes to the brakes aswell xD

Bit tight, but with some effort it is almost there:



Could anyone tell me if it is possible to run the XT600Z engine with the SR250 electric system or it would be better to get the cdi, voltage regulator, yada yada yada from the XTZ? I already have the wiring harness of the Tenere but those things are missing...

Cheers

T'day;
perfect fit!


the 600Z engine is a little bit shorter than the 250 because of the location of the starter motor


my gf showing the new silencer position


transmission offset is reduced to 1cm with the engine 1cm more to the right side, i'll try to balance it with the heavy stuff moved to the left side of the bike


another problem, the front sprocket is welded to the nut


thats all for today

Thanks, i already had seen that cafe racer :)

After hours and hours looking for rear shocks, i ended up ordering twin XT500 Wilbers with 365mm lenght and 105mm stroke

Any ideas about the front forks?

Taking care of the lower engine mount


The main mount is ready with the bushings back from the shop


Mounted with only one mount and it already stands stil

Looking good, man! I really thought it would be too much work to cram that engine in there but you're making it look easy. Good job!
