Good Morning from Maine, I am working on a project right now and could use a starting point. I have a 97 XC600 mono triple. I have just come across a pretty fresh long block with the SLP 654 kit. I am going to stay away from the pipes on this one, Maine is cracking down on it, and I would like this thing to be as dependable as a fake triple can be. I will be running the 38's that were on the old engine. The gearing and clutching are stock and the jets have been left alone as well. I will be adding a 136" skid and keeping the x-tra 10 front and rear. I am assuming that I may have to fatten up the mains a bit. So now I am ready for all of the different opinions on jetting, gearing and clutching. This is my play sled and will be used for some aggressive trail riding and some minor off trail stuff in the spring. I have another 97 XC 600 that is completely stock with 3500 trouble free miles on it, so when this one ended up with moisture in the CC from sitting off season, I figured it was a good opportunity to make a toy.
