u should have just bought a xr600 and just redid all the paint the way you wanted it.
How much fun would that have been?
Yes there is some frustration but I enjoy projects like this.
I was going to rebuild the XL; then I got a good deal on the XR chassis so things got mixed up for a minute.
I thought I could use allot of parts from the XL but I'm finding out differently.
I'm just taking two basket-cases and making one decent bike, the problem is they are two different motorcycles.
