Hi Guys!

I'm Rich, i ride a 1997 XJ600N in red.

I am not new to the bike scene having ridden since the ripe old age of 16 (now nearly 26!) however i have found myself fixated mainly on the joys of Car mechanicing for the last couple of years until finally....i picked up my beauty from my older brother last year and now i definiatly feel the bug again!!

Since purchase, i've serviced, cleaned, and fettled with the engine and standard bodywork and now i'm ready to start modifying!!


1. upgrade the chain and F&R sprockets
(if anyone has recommendations for these that would be great ive seen some posts already but cant hurt to ask again, I've been told Renthal front (16T) and Supersprox (48T) are the way forward, however having looked at both suppliers I can't find the correct parts! :???: )

2. Convert rear end to a Cafe Racer Style. (After seeing some pics from Radare , this is a MUST!!!! :thumbsup: )

3. Upgrade Tail Lights to LED

4. Upgrade Exhaust

5. Enjoy it until the next project!!

Cheers Guys! hope to chat to you all at some point!

Hello and welcome to the site! :thumbsup: Keep us updated on your progress, got any picts? I'd say be sure to keep your old parts..... and then send them to me! :clap: Only kidding, as I'm sure the shipping from there to here would be outrageous.
