Yes it is possible. You can use the electric starter taken off a Honda XR650 or buy a XR650 electric start kit which fits on the XR600 for about $800 (Non-Honda Parts) or $1600 (complete kit using OEM Honda parts) from Joe Racer. Click on the links below to read more:

Found this bike rotting and I'm fixing it up. Can anyone please help me identify the model? First I thought it was the XR250 but the engine block looks a little small for a 250cc. Electric start.

The Honda XR 200R had a 195 cc (11.9 cu in) engine that was shared with the Honda ATC 200x but with a different camshaft and carburetor. This engine ran 10:1 compression ratio and was over square. For the 1984-85 model years, the XR200 had a smaller version of the same 4 valve RFVC engine as the other XR's in the line up. The 200cc RFVC engine shared many parts with the 250cc RFVC engine. For the 1986 model year, Honda reverted to the 2 valve engine that had powered the XR200R before 1984 and variations of the 2 valve engine continued to power the XR200R until the model was dropped altogether.

Will xr 250 pipes fit a xr 350

The 1985 XT250 has one exhaust port so its header is a single pipe.On the other hand the 1985 XT350 has two exhaust ports and double header pipe.I don't think you can fit either one.

How do I replace the drivers side low-beam headlight bulb?


Remove the electrical connection off the back of the bulb which is the center bulb.
Twist the bulb assembly counter clockwise and remove bulb.
Fitting of the new bulb is the exact opposite.

Can i turn my 1986 honda 600 kick start into a electric start

Not unless you change engines to one that already has an electric starter. A 1986 bike is not worth what it would cost. The frame would need to be altered for the new engine to fit. Please rate my answer. Thanks.

New bulb in now wont work - no power - wont turn on to reset lamp

first, make sure you have the correct lamp. the lamp for the xr-10x-l looks like the xr-10x, but the plugs are different (common mistake). make sure you have the AN-XR10L2/1, not the AN-XR10LP/1. to reset the lamp timer (with the projector plugged in but off), hold down the enter, down arrow, and menu buttons and press the power.

Hello there: I wonder if I can replace the rear shock of my XR 600R 1992 with a XR 650R 2002 rear shock. Cant find any information about the full lenght of either? Thanks in advance guys. Cheers.

Hi Manolo,

with regard to your question, YES, you may use an OEM rear shock from an 02 XR 650f to your 1992 XR600. Both models have the same link type ro it should fit perfectly.note the placing though, you may need larger bushing to fit the shocks.

hope this helps. if you have other questions, please let me know.

Not really a problem.

Yes you can change your XR400 to electric start.
Just find a parted out 400EX 4wheeler.It may be easier to find a complete blowed motor and get everything you need at one time.But I did ship a complete bottom end to a guy in Italy and he did the conversion.
