Also, if the gears are the same, then what other changes may have been made in the tranny on the 650l (heavier flywheel, taller primary drive, etc).
Reason I am asking is that I am thinking about stripping mt 650l down to its bare essentials, running 14/48 gearing, and putting on IRC knobbies (stock for 600r - rear anyway) and will I have a bike very similar to the 600r (other than the short 1st gear, electric start with battery, lower compression, larger displacement).
My other option is to put a 600r engine in my frame.

For 1398.00 White Bros. has a kit to give the "L" 50 rear wheel HP, check out their site.

I know the starter and battery are weight that cannot be entirely lost but relocating a smaller battery along with that other stuff in the bolt on box would help me drop some weight. Also, I did forget to mention that part of my plan is to replace the CV carb with a regular dirt carb. If there is a difference in the flywheel weight, then installing the lighter one should improve throttle response and lighten the load a bit.
I also have a 600r rear fender already and that will shave a pound or two off of the rear.
