RR overheating? Happens to me at extended periods of high speeds (anything above 60ish )

I can likely safely assume the european model they'll be basing them on is a 2KF like mine, so I can just go by year. Now how to indicate which year mine is when ordering is a different question. They make these for several bikes but they are all listed on one page with no way to select a year/make/model. So I am asking them, in English, how to do that. They're pretty affordable, and I imagine I'll be welding on some crossbar action and maybe some of those cool steel tube hoops, with all the bracketry already laid out for me via their minimalist racks.







I wish they made one of those racks (the red luggage rack) to fit my 2002 600E ...!!!!! It looks like just what I am after...!!

I need someone to buy the pannier racks and ship them to me apparently. The people who make them will not respond to my questions, even translated to italian. They don't seem to ship to the usa on their site, or have a place to specify the model number for the individual bike of that style of rack in the ordering process. Frustration mounting. They may have that rack for your bike. check http://www.accessorimotocross.it/ind...re-rally1.html

OK so made a tool for the forks. Works a treat. I've now changed to 15 weight oil, progressive springs, new seals & given everything a good clean out. Also a new heavy progressive rear spring & new cush drive rubbers.

Test ride felt OK just gotta put me fork boots back on.


Oh I hear the trail calling to me.

I don't know if I will get the old girl up to snuff again.

Cylinder is so worn out that it rattles like a sob. I may try to find a used cylinder some day and have it bored to fit the piston. 40k miles is a lot for the old thing.

You're absolutely right it looks like exactly.
And how satisfied are you with these tire? Would you recommend me?

Dimensions:
Front 90/90-21
Rear 120/90-17 or 130/80-17 (you have?)

A friend have Tire still in the garage and can't advise me (experience).
But this does not seem like TKC80 and it's on the XT (dimensions) come to me those bigger stopper and profil rounder, maybe they will change the rim profile...

very satisfied !
Used to have shinko and these are better on the street and MUCH better off road
i've got a 130 on the back but if it where now i'd go for a 120
only con is that they are a bit loud, and so far only got 1500 km on them so not know how long they will last
I got them from a friend who sold them to me with less then 100km on them (he sold the bike and had them left over)
so i got them very cheap (50 both with 2 michelin reinforced 3mm inner tubes ) :)

Looking for some help from someone on the eurasian continent. Anyone? Will pay you for your time & effort. Need these shipped to the US which they apparently don't do. Italian speaking a plus.

Funny you should say this. I was just joking about this possibility with a few other inmates last night. I have an XT600 in Wisconsin, and getting parts is a real pain. My best success has been KEDO in Germany, but it is still slow and costly to order them.

The funny part is that I am moving to the UK on Saturday and will likely get another XT600 once I arrive. As an aside, I made my own rear rack for the XT since ordering one was costly. Not real pretty, but it worked great on my last trip.





The racks cost ~$30 worth of tubing and a bit of steel plate. The higher cost was the tubing bender. I already had all the other metal working gear to build them.

Nope. It went into storage yesterday. I was nearly finished rebuilding the engine with a 675 big bore kit when I found a spacer from the tranny output shaft that I had forgotten. I don't have enough time for a 2nd complete tear down/rebuild before I leave so it will just wait for my return.
