You need all those parts-AND you want them at a reasonable price?? Good luck.

As mentioned, E-Bay, Craigslist, or some of the after market suppliers will be your best bet.

For the amount of parts you need, he might be better off purchasing a complete used engine and keeping the old one for parts.

Service Honda has the best prices. Not the best service, but the best price. When I spend more than $200 or so I always use them.

Ebay works too.

What happened to the motor? Something serious if a new con rod is needed.

Before spending a lot of $$$ on this engine, take a look in the cases and check the trans gears. You can see in well enough to check when you take the cylinder off. If there is significant pitting on the gear surfaces it might make more sense to look for a replacement engine.

well he bought it used, took it on a few rides and we noticed that his bike smokes! after three more rides it became worse until the motor itself ate all the oil! 2 of his rockers were shaved in half and the cam lobes are in bad shape. he wants to get a new conrod and timing chain just in case.

i checked bike bandit and they seem to have all the parts that my buddy needs.


good news is he found a brand new piston complete with rings still in its original packaging and block in his mechanics house. :confused: he also found a 1985 XR600 engine thats missing a few parts but the cam and rockers are still there. will parts from this engine fit on the 87' model??

Looks like they are compatible.
