Different gearing, similar transmissions
Softer (weaker) stock suspensions, different forks
Different compressions & HP
Same rear fender & right side panel
Similar frames, different tanks
One has both a battery & e-strart
Different rims
One's heavier

Pretty much apples to oranges. :thumbsup:

My riding buddy has a 93 600R. Bikes are almost identical, except I've got the magic button. They feel the same, ride the same, turn the same. Frame is the same. I think much of the bike is interchangeable.

The frame is not the same...but is similar. Many parts are interchangeable, meaning most stuff that fits the XR600R will also fit the L. Several of the aftermarket parts on my bike are designed for the R and did require modifications.

no. xr650l/xr600 exhausts are different from the r exh.
