sounds good. a little quieter than stock but i had that all drilled out. sounds deeper though. power seems to be just fine, hard to tell with ice on the roads. were there was dry pavement i gave it some gas and the front end comes up easy as pie. now on to 628 bore. also jetting seems fine. tim

Is that an '86 XR600 with dual carbs? Are you the one that stole that from me as well :bonk: Just messing with ya, but I did have one for a few years and then it was stolen from me back in '90 :thumbsup: Awesome bike!

I got the second to last available...so some lucky fool snagged the last one. It's gonna be a race as to who gets theirs first, as I ordered a day after Timothy but since the guy ships from Oregon and I'm in NorCal, we'll see. I'll post pics when I get it.



Ryan let me know how your install goes. And post a pic with and without your side cover, for reference purposes of course!

Mine came today as well. I'll hold off posting pics unless someone wants me to.

I was amazed for paying $115 to my door, I got the beautiful pipe, very clean adapter pipe, fancy hose clamp, gasket, stainless allen bolts, and strap as well as 2 stickers, a pin, a leather keychain, a T-shirt, and a hat!

Install was easy, I didn't have any problems with the strap as tim did, but I have a 650L if that was the difference.

Haven't ridden it yet because I have to install the new carb as well, but it sounds a lot better. Not too loud, but a nice deep mellow tone. Sounds just like my buddy's SV650 with a Yosh pipe. I noticed the air flowing out the tip was a lot more forcefull, which shows better flow.

Conclusion: If these pop up on eBay again and you have a stock pipe...Get one!!!

Supafly do you think I will HAVE to rejet the carb?

it is an 86. been sitting for about 7 yrs. and yes it is awesome, 56mm of carburation to work with. when it get's bored to 628 i should be able to put a pretty good amount of gas into the cylinder. mega thump. sorry to hear about your's. i don't worry to much because i don't think your average low life thief would be able to start it, maybe even break a leg on a kickback, hopefully.

All the other stuff that came with it.

...Installed! No install pics because it just goes together super easy.

All done. Much better than the matte black turd that was hanging off before!

I doubt you'll have to rejet, but the risk you would be running is too lean of a mixture, which could in turn overheat the motor. XR's Only sells an oil temp dipstick for $40 that you should get for your bike anyway, and that way you can keep an eye on the temp until you are able to rejet.

[B] :thumbsup: Put my new and might I say extremly nice looking exhaust on. Went on very easily with no problems just as supaflyryan said. The sound is just great 100% better than stock. The power increase is dramatic also! Thanks for the headsup on the pipe on ebay! :thumbsup: :bonk:

i'am also very happy with mine. just today i was able to go up 1 more size main jet, also opened up the air box even more. holy smokes!!!. almost pulled it over going into second. kind of scared me :bonk: front end comes up EASILY IN 3RD all this and the roads are wet. :thumbsup: not bad for a 20 year old big heavy pig. alot of extra power for $ 115.00 ex. and $10.00 jets. tim

I am happy with mine as well after riding for a few days. I have Dave's Carb Mods done and along with the exhaust I went to a UNI pod filter instead, and was able to stuff the electrical things inside the airbox. I'm very happy with the power the bike is pulling now.

Great score guys!!! I'm gonna keep my head up. So do you think the sound is within decibles of stock ? any ratings ? I do dual sport rides, and a sound check is a must with an expensive tool at 3,000ish rpm. Need to be 92 db or less.
