ADVMoto (Adventure Motorcycle) magazine addressed a some common issues among used Honda XR650Ls by rebuilding the top end with a JE Piston kit. Read the guide here!
There's a lot of XR600s and 650s out there with a lot of miles on them, and they're probably still kickin'. However, a lot of them are probably consuming more oil, smoking, and gradually losing their luster in power.
ADVMoto chose to go with a JE overbore piston kit, paired with cylinder work done by PowerSeal USA. The result: drastically reduced oil burning, cleaner oil, and power revival.
