Are they the same ?

4 posts in this topic

I need a new clutch basket for a '94 XR600 and have been told by a wrecker that the NX650 is the same. Can anyone confirm either way this information ?. The part is interstate so can not be accurately compared before purchase.

I would think that the clutch baskets are the same. Have you tried cross referencing the part? You could try xrs only they are very good with parts for the 600/650's

Just did a little further research on this, and it appears that the two bikes are geared differently therefore the clutch basket is not interchangable between the two bikes. Also it seems there is no aftermarket clutch baskets available for the xr600.

Oh, welcome to TT.

While the clutch basket is the same, I know that the primary reduction is different. The gear is part of the clutch basket and can't be swapped(I think). The gear on the crank of the XR650L and NX 650 has 32 teeth. The gear on the XR600 crank has 34 teeth. Because of this, I would think that the gear on the NX clutch is going to be different than the one on your 600.

Perhaps you could get the 32 tooth geat for the crank when you get the clutch and that would work. It changes the primary reduction and will gear your bike for a little higher speeds. You could compensate with a one tooth smaller countershaft sprocket. However, I'm not 100% sure that the NX650 clutch and gear will fit.
