I know the R is 1; 3.083 and 2; 2.2125
Can anyone check the L?

Someone posted the whole set of ratios for the 600R and the 650L here a while ago.

Good chance to get handy with the search tool- try searching this forum for "600R 650L gear ratio" etc.

Can't I change just the first gear only?

You a 'LUGger?

Anyway, you can take an XR600R 1st gear (both 1st gears), and use it in place of an XR650L 1st gear.

If you use a 600R countershaft, you have the option of adding a kicker.

That sounds contradictory to what this poster claimed:
XR650L_Dave,

The ONLY difference between the XR600 gearset and the XR650L in terms of ratio is first gear. Second gear on up is exactly the same. The XR600R's 1st gear is slightly higher. Other than that, the gears are not interchaingeable between bikes unless you replace the entire gearset, including the main-shaft and the countershaft. I know... I tried!!!


Lemme know if I am not interpreting this accurately. Just curious since my '07 L seems to have a 'gnashy' sounding 1st gear, especially on downshifting into 1st.

I want to put the XR600 1st gears into my XR650L, so the spread between first and second is not so large. They appear to fit, but that post that said you must swap the whole gearset confused me.

I thought I heard you could change 1st over from a 600 set- could be wrong.

There are 2 different kinds of XR600R countershafts- at some point they went from 6 splines to the higher number of splines like the XRL has (14?).

Maybe someone tried a swap from a 6-spline countershaft?

I'll have to claim ignorance beyond that.

85-90 XR600 uses the six spline countershaft. The 91 and up use the same splines as the 650L.
