XR600R A Bike Is Born Sicily
Posted January 23, 2008 - 01:03 PM
I want to say hello and thank you all to many hours of really good reading here on TT, for the insperation and for have giving me the guts to follow throu with this rebuilding. Im a swedish student that living on Sicily, I have a girlfriend and I love the climat down here. Today we had like 17degrese (celcius).. I have some really good things going on on my bike. It was a stock oildripping Honda XR600 from 98 that I buoght for a bargin:applause: .. I started to take of some some of the stickers and ended upp tearing the hole bike apart..Thats life..
My plan is:
Have XL600 cylinder 100mm 628cc
Not High comp. piston from JE 10.8:1
Have Hotcam 1
Not Hotrod coneting rod
Have Xr650r carburator (with smaller jets)
Have Xr650l intake rubber 60mm
Have K&N airfilter
Not SKF crankberings (sweden)
Have Cr500 USD front forks ("If" the front rim touch the ground 140$ ebay US)
Have Xr250 oli cooler (2 stay cool 15€ ebay france)
Not Blackbird racing grafics (Made In Italy)
Have Honda Xr650l rear pegs (10$ ebay)
Have Xr600r Original digital meter speed unit (overkill but cheap)
Not Fmf powerbomb and a matching slipon
Not A "light" porting job
Have Braking rotor front new
Have New Ek chain
Have Fron light US modell but with Hi/lo
Have means that I got it and "not" means not yet.
So now I would like to know what you guys think. Do you think 628cc is enough? Jetting options? Piston? Fmf powerbomb? A light portin job? I want to have the power early. Im not so intressted to have all the power in the end..Please let me know if you have any ideas or suggestions.
I have pic's if someone is intressted...

e xr400 is bigger but a gott this one cheap.. The fact is that Im going for a piston with higher compression (more heat)and the weather down here can be really warm. I had my first 46 degrease celcius last summer... Im just playing safe :-). Wanted!!![U]pics on the welding for the buddy pegs[/U]!!!!Wanted

Its time once again for some input. The frame is sand blasted and welded for the new passanger pegs (xr650l style) and the oil cooler: I decided to go for the big dady oil cooler (xr400)I putt the xr600 stearing steam on the cr500 YOKE.. perfect match even with the stearing lock:applause: . The cylinder is preperd for the JE 101 piston and the dowel pin and bolt flang was machined to xr600r spec. The Hot rod connecting rod is on place the old one had lived a hard life with to hot, to less and dirty oil.. I took some pics
I sold the speedo and now want to go for the vapor unit,
That's all for today
Enjoy.. I need help furter on with the carb.. Jets ecc ecc. The carb is from a stock Europe version XR650R..
