  11. XR 600 top end refresh advice

    Hi folks - I'm new on here and hoping for some advice. I'm about to buy a '96 XR600. The seller has been very honest in that it uses a bit of oil and would benefit from a set of rings and valve stem seals. It'll be a restoration project but I intend to use it for the Spring/Summer first. I'm...

    Dominator / FMX
    Have a look at this: Honda fmx 650 | eBay See the crash bungs? If the bike goes down on the right it's going to smash the clutch cover and oil filter housing.

    Africa Twin
    Been struggling with this one. Bike was running great then thought I'd try a tank of the super unleaded. Within a very short time, she began too misfire.
