Your repair manual should have instructions.

And, I agree, that breather needs to be relocated for water crossing; no reason for it not to be run up higher.
Luke gave the oil pump his once over and called it good while we had the bottom end opened up. We also did spin the pump around and verified it pumped oil. This is my first engine rebuild, so I'm relying on those with more experience in cases such as these to make the call...I'm two-three weeks out from firing up the motor...wish me luck!

I replaced my oil pump for a couple of reasons - the most important being relatively cheap peace of mind .

I bought the 2000 XR600 as a basket with an oil-starved top end (reason unknown). That was the engine built as the 628, which went well over a year trouble free. Every time I checked the valves they were in spec. I changed the oil and filter very often.

Then after a week in Baja it blew up - and since there was no super obvious reason the top end starved for oil again, it made sense to replace the original pump that had been in service when two top ends went phlooey.
Slightly lean jetting was likely the slow death of that motor at sea level, but an oil pump is cheap when you're spending that much to put a couple of motors together.
He checked the pump, that'd be good enough for me

Finally had a free evening to do some wrenchin' and post up some pics from this past week of the rebuild...it's finally starting to come all together bit by bit

Airbox is in! Thanks for the reminder macma111


Guest wrenching help this last Saturday for the top end was my long time buddy Dave - non ADV but he's talking about getting a DRZ

New HotCam - finding the "T" mark on the flywheel to set the timing was a bit tricky, but I finally found it and the timing marks on the cam gear lined right up.


Valve cover on -



I missed getting a picture of my neighbor Greg this past sunday. But he came right over to help me lift the motor into the frame.

Front suspension coming together - Rebuilt by Promotion Suspension in Vancouver, WA

Rox Risers

FMF Powerbomb Headers


Spent the last few evenings scrubbing and soaking the rear brake in Chem Dip. Finally tonight got the rear brake back together with new pads and installed. Looks way better!



I finally received the choke plate I ordered from XR's Only back in January tonight! Whew...looking to start deep cleaning carb going into the weekend and hopefully get that installed ASAP. Soaking the front brake tonight and I need to drag out the wiring harness and clean the grime off of that mess. Later Cheers! I've got serious XR fever

No Sir Wib!

This bike has some cool SRC Fork Protectors and Fork Brace, so no fork boots required.

I'll have those fork protectors on very soon. The SRC fork brace is on.

Be sure to go on good mud and rock ride, before we ride together. I couldn't bear to watch all that new shine getting spattered and battered.

Might have to host a "show and tell" meet up at our place Ken when this bike is finished

It's not going to look showroom for long!
