Okay here's one for ya. I used to own a '96 XR650L which burned up in a house fire. Whats left of it is sitting in my buddies barn. The bike is all there except of course for the plastic & rubber bits & the rims. I'm not comortable using the frame but was wondering if there's any chance that the motor might be okay if dissassembled & checked for tolerances. Would the high heat affect heat treating on the internals? The motor actually looks OK & turns over freely. Just a thought. Might make a nice addition to a used 600 with a blown engine if one could be found. Not all that serious about the it, just kicking it around for a future winter project idea. Seems like less money would be spent just buying another used XRL than all the trouble of reviving the 'ol girl but I did lover her back in the day. Lots of round trips from Boise, ID to Spokane, WA on her.
