    Xr600 shock fits straight in, the front end can be changed but you need a spacer for the headstem as it is shorter than CR/XR. if you pull out the Airbox snorkel you will need to go up on the main jet, don't worry about the needle as its a waste of $30, just adjust the one in it if you need to.

    Luv em, bloody great bike to muck around on with heaps of grunt, I want to build a special when I get some time.
    4-strokes have one real advantage over 2-strokes. Like the "big bang" theory in street bikes, the firing cycles are spaced longer, letting the tire hook up better on loose ground. And I'm sorry if I have hurt any 2-strokes feelings, but what do I care?

      Yeah, I have done the air box Red, and I need to get a jet, I don't have the right one in my kit.

      I have just added 50mm preload and heavier fork oil to the forks, and it has made a heap of difference. Shock will be next.

            The wifes is running standard needle with clip in bottom position. Now running a 115 mainjet 102 is standard.

            Read that the 120 was good for standard needle but made the bike feel fat in the upper revs. It revs freely all the way now. Nice and smooth

            One thing I hate though is the rear drum. It needs to be adjusted after every ride.. Or maybe coise drags the brakes. I am yet to determin... lol

              G'day Pigdog
              I've got a mate who rides one out on the trails............ it's completely standard, with crap tyres.
              When he gets serious.................. you've got to be right on the ball just to keep up with him !!!!!!!!!!
              But he is some sort of ex enduro ace !

                Red, why didn't Honda ADR the F like Yamaha does with the TTR? From what I can see and what I've read the L is nothing like the F. Seems like an ADR F model would have been an excellent alternative to the TTR-A.

                      Hmmmm, yeah.


                      Hang on. I need to remember this is just a farm bike. I really don't want to go and do a lap of my track and find out I am quicker on it than the 250. That would be a disaster.

                      Might have to do vic series next year on one if I am.

                        Can you elaborate a little? Does the L model come out of the factory in ADR guise, and therefore needs no modification at all?

                        I would love to have a registerable F model for the little lady to get around on.

                          I think from memory they are built in different countries. Thats what red1 said a while back.

                            Well, with heavy fork oil and 50mm preload, it is great at soaking it all up, but the rebound is to slow.

                            Might have to try a little lighter, I think I went to thick to early.

                                Was gunna post earlier about being careful with fork oil weight. The forks probably don't have any type of blow off valve and if they don't by the time you get enough comp' damping feel with heavier oil they'll lock on high speed movements, hadn't considered the rebound.

                                Same problem for pre '85 competitors, common fix is drill out damper rods and fit gold valves.( EDIT I meant emulator valves )
                                .
