MX, your bike looks great too. My 600R is a 95'. I decided to keep the stock header and shield and run the Supertrapp IDS2 it came to me with. I repaired the Supertrapp and repacked it. Got my handguards on and tomorrow hopefully get my black excel Rim back on front. changed back over to CR HIGH bars from the Henry/Reed bend and man this things is a serious dirt contender. I don't like the Sedona tire on the rear, so I'm going to put my Tractionator on it ASAP.

. Your bike is the way that I remembered on how the XR600's were back when I was only dreaming of one. I recently just sold My 1985 600 and it was a dual sport like my XR650R is but I actually found myself wanting to ride the good ole 600 more often because for one I could thrash it but it was just a simple thumper with nothing to worry about but an occasional chain tension and is my oil full. The 600's sit a bit lower as well, and that aided in some feet swingin hill climbs for Me. Mine had the stock header with a super trap as well

 New tank and graphics installed. Got another foot of powder last night though so I am still a few weeks out from hitting any trails locally.

 Thanks man! Its been a fun winter build so far .... she's got a fresh OEM top end rebuild and a Dot-Com jetted '08 CRF450R FCR as well now. =)

 

Getting a XR600R street plated up here is impossible not to mention the XR600R is a pretty rare find up these ways to begin with. I figured why not build my own .... that way I get a street and trail with the look I wanted and the magic button. Haha.

I've just purchased a pristine 1993 XR600R. Less than 5000 miles on it. The previous owner replaced the rear coil with one from Eibach and he also installed a rear lowering link kit and shorter fork springs as well and added a 15 42 Gear setup for better highway speeds. Other mods include trailtech speedo, 5" round headlight, supermoto style plastics, clark tank, LED brake light and signals, DG muffler.

CRF 450 forks with CRF250R triples/stem and All Balls racing bearing conversion kit.

I was going to do this to my XR650R. I have a few more questions, how much did you spend, Recommendations on where to find, are you now running a CRF450 front caliper and wheel and do You know if that set up also fits the XR650R? Thank You!
