I wouldn't sell it, you'll hate yourself later when you cant ride it. Espeacially after all the work and sweat you put into it, just to let someone else enjoy your hard work. Other than that it's a sweet looking bike. Good job.

Very nice work, I hope my bike turns out half as nice as that one.

I agree...don't sell it.

Looks awesome!

Hold on. It's never done. You know that, right? Now it's time for some suspension. Look for some later cartridge forks (1991 and up). It will make a big dirrerence compared to your damper rod forks.

How is the 11:1 piston? Does it ping on premium pump gas or do you run race gas?

How come the black tank looks all scored and scratched up? Is this the way the Baja kit looks new? The white and red stock tanks don't show scratches like this even after years of riding.

Nice restoration work, and I'm sure 'she' rips, but I still like the stock look best. My XR600 is a 'he' — no aftermarket emasculation.

possibly cause i rode it and got a few scratches thanks to a very small palm tree and it kinda came that way, but i already do have the upgraded suspension those came with all the parts when i bought the bike and i know its never done im already considering buying an electrosport speedometer. and the 11:1 piston doesnt even ping i ran it for a few hours before realizing i put in 87 octane and no pings so i filled her up with 91 and she runs even better.
