I bought a pristine 1993 XR600 this last winter and have just now been able to get it out on a few rides. I didnt like the bike for tight terrain at first, but am now getting the hang of it. I need advice on how to make this a little more friendly on the tight trails here in Oregon. I have already added Protaper CR Hi bars and have gone with 13/48 gearing. Here are a few ideas I have to further tame this bike. Your input would be appreciated. 1) I have a Clarke 4.7 gallon tank and wonder if putting a stock one on would help the bike feel more slim at the seat/tank? 2) Go with 13/50 or 13/51 gearing. Has anyone tried this gearing? 3) Add wide pegs. 4) Gripper seat cover. Any other ideas would be great. I like the bike and would like to keep it, just need to tone it down a bit.
