Anyone an idea where I can get my hands on some spokes, with ideal length?

XR600 front hub, 19" excel rim ...

Would like to try the lacing myself

Thanks Hurco!!

Dropped them an email.

Also thinking about an 19" SLR front wheel. Would this be p&p with the axle of the xr600 / calliper?

Just wondering...

Decided to stick with the 21" front for now. seems alright.

Added fender & light.

Next up is front fender. Then all can go out for paint.

Update :)



Struggling with the monoshock. This is from a Kawasaki ZX ... something (quite old). Did the paint & refurbishing but the shock is way too soft.

When I sit on it it easily drops 3 inches giving me almost no clearance with the tyre. Any idea I can get some air in it to harden it ?

Next up will be custom exhaust / seat & tank

Thanks,
Wannes

Have it rebuilt and re-valved for your application

Learned this is the wrong spring.

The Original XR600 shock is perfect however too long, its ass is pointing to the moon.

Does anyone know if an XR400 monoshock is shorter?

What about a lowering link for the stock xr600 shock?  Looks like this one will bring you down 1.5" from stock, not sure if that's enough,

http://www.xrsonly.com/xrs-only-lower-lowering-link-fits-honda-xr250r-86-95-xr350r-85-xl600r-83-87-xr600r-85-2000-xr650l-93-15

There may be other options that work as well, like the '80's xr250 or 350, just guessing since that lowering link fits a lot of different xr's.  Upper mounts might be different.
