Does anyone know if a triple of a pre 1991 XT600 or any other model will be a direct bolt on to the headstem and forks.

I'm hoping that if I pick up a new top triple clamp and headlight bracket all will work out.

Thanks
Hi
A bracket from a 1996-2003 (4PT model) vil fit as this is the XT600E "new" version sold in europe after they discontinued selling them in the US

The earlyer years might fit but the headlight is different so you might have problems there

XT675 Cylinder O-ring

I stopped by my machinist this morning and he won't touch it...... I almost don't blame him, but a competent lathe operator could cut this groove. He suggested simple gasket maker and a google search shows that many old Britbikes employ this method instead of a base gasket.

Tonight I am gonna try to put it on my lathe and see how it looks. If there is significant risk of ruining the cylinder, I will just go for the gasket maker. Otherwise I will try to cut the groove. Sadly, my best option for holding it is a 3-jaw chuck. Would prefer a proper mandrel to support the whole length. We'll see how it goes.

Interesting project. Always wondered about hotting up the XT. As they say there's no substitute for cubes.

I suspect the chamfer should be a tad smaller as the o-ring would be a little stretched. I'm surprised the machinist didn't point out the fact prior to commencing the work.

I must admit I only feel the vibes in my hands. Still liking your work Radan. Ever considered a matching (smaller) set of passenger pegs?

Changing my fork springs & giving them a revamp. I don't have a manual & was just wondering how much oil is in the manual for a 92 600?

I'm gonna run 10 weight probably. It's going to be well loaded so I thought heavy oil would help.

What's everybody running in there's?

Thanks

Quick question, I have both 17" and 18" rear wheels, which handles better? I'll use 130 80 17 or 130 80 18....

Checked my manual, here is your answer.

Each fork 538 cm3 (18.9 Imp oz 18.1 US oz.)

Oil level should be 6.10 from the top of the fork.

If you need a manual, check over on the hubb site in the Yamaha Tech. I am pretty sure that is where I got mine.

Good luck.

How are you going to get an RPM reading from your engine to the tach?? Is there a way to just plug this tach into some existing cable to get a reading?
