i have a 1986 xl 600r with an XR motor in it, the top end is a lil tired and i have the almost complete top end of the original motor and its in very nice shape. will the jug and piston from the XL bolt in and work on the XR bottom end? what needs to be done to make it work if it will and can anyone answer if this is an interchange that can easily be done cash is tight thats why i thought i might be able to go this route until i can afford to rebuild the motor properly. my email is jranseth@email.com if i cant get back into here thanks to anyone that can help
