I don't know if the Honda you have can be wired that way. Most Honda's are set up to draw ignition power from a battery. This means you need a voltage regulator/rectifier, etc.Some XR's come with a headlight and a taillight, handy for getting out of the woods after dark. If you have an XL you will probably have to use the XR stator,harness,and CDI to convert it to no battery. The plate on your frame neck should have the model number on it. I would check the dirt rider forums (advrider and others)and see if you can find someone who has converted your model.

1983 Honda XR 350 - Reattaching the exhaust pipe w/ flanges.


I cant quite figure out which spacers you are refering to. The only thing I can think to suggest is the exhaust schematic on bikebandit.com. If I knew for sure I could try to look at my bike but there's no telling what previous owners could have done. Sorry. I'd really like to help.
