    Dry sump yes, but wet clutch. The idea is, it just stores the oil in the frame rather than the bottom of the engine for better oil cooling and more oil capacity without making the engine bulkier. Possibly less windage as well.

    Headlight??

    Can anyone tell me if twinshock XR250/500's had High and low beam headlights?
    Did they even have a headlight on/off switch?

    no idea what it was but it had a light switch of some sort
    http://www.partzilla.com/parts/searc...LES/parts.html
    the same part was used on these models

    1981 ATC250R A CONTROL LEVERS + CABLES + SWITCHES 81

    1979 XR185 A HANDLE LEVER + SWITCHES + CABLES

    1979 XR500 A CONTROL LEVERS + SWITCHES + CABLES

    1980 XR200 A CONTROL LEVERS + SWITCHES + CABLES

    1980 XR500 A CONTROL LEVERS + SWITCHES + CABLES

    Any bugger on this thread have a XR250 or 200 RFVC primary gear I can borrow to compare the tooth pattern

    Nice one, man there aint much to the old Xr's compared to now days, no wonder they went like cut cats, pretty much even with a DR750 with a pipe when I drag raced my mates which was stock, and the thing felt like a 750 with all the torque and no weight

    You might be better off buying one off Ebay likely $250-300NZD landed
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/83-HONDA-XR5...-/201401832950

    There actually was one with new valves and guides last month for 200NZD landed for a 82 model

    Pretty common for older 250's to crack through the plug/valve bridge, I've not seen a 500 do it.
