Hi there,
I'm making a project that includes stuffing a 3AJ engine in a SR250 Classic frame, you can see it here:
http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...=542521&page=7

And now i was curious if there's any power changes between the first versions of the XT600, the XT600Z and the final XT600E engines. I know that at some point, the Z had increased cooling fins and better oil pump but thats about it.

Cheers

btw Mezo, that Ten looks and sounds fantastic!

There is a bit of history here about the changes to the engines over the years, also on Ingo`s site as well here (needs translate).

Question Do I belong Here??

Hi to all
I have recently purchased an XT600E which is probably about as rough as you can get. I plan to restore it to at least be safe and reliable. I have gleaned heaps of info from this thread which has been great. Am I best to start my own rebuild thread or is it best to join in on this one? I have attached some pics to give you an idea of where I am starting from.

Hopefully the link works?
Cheers
John

Alloy Shift Lever

Here is a cross reference tip - shifter for 2003 YZ125 fits the XT600e perfectly. I picked up a Sunline alloy shifter for $30. Beats the heck out of the stock POS.

I've got one on my 1991 3TB, the version shown in the picture you posted. I have found it to sound great, not too loud (nobody wants to sound like a hooligan do they?), and with a really nice tone, much deeper than the stock exhaust. The finish is great but the fit needed a bit of work. The two mounting holes needed to be ovalised by about 3mm to get the bolts through and the slip-over joint with the header pipes was out of round by about 0.5mm which needed rectifying before it would slip over the Arrow headers which I'd already bought second hand. I also polished out the etched on warning "for off-road use only".

I don't have any sound recorded just yet but could work on that ...

Regards - Alastair.

I love my stock POS, it has been bend, and bended back around 20 times, where everyone else with alu had failed (broken straight of) But it sure looks nice tho'

My last dual-sport outing included about twenty get-offs and two full fledged crashes. Since my stock shifter does not have a foldable tip, I had to bend it back at least 3-4 times in one day. I am sure hoping that a more robust shifter with a foldable tip will be an improvement.

exhaust help 1986 XT600

I am drooling over all the lovely pipes on view here. I just took off my OEM/Bastardized Supertrapp for a bit of a clean up. I saw that there were no gaskets so I bought two. When I went to reattach the exhaust with the new gasket there was barely enough thread to put the nuts back on. Even with the gaskets out I am having trouble getting the pipe back in it's original position with the plates tight to the engine side of the bolts. I am unsure whether I even need the gaskets. I am also unsure of how to get everything back in it's original position, perhaps I am being too gentle. Any help appreciated.

I have that exact lever on one of my XT`s (came with it) thought it looked very nice as well, went to remove it & found the alloy splines had worn away (rounded off) and its virtually brand new.

So id say for long life span stick with steel, plus steel can be bent back in to shape, OK for round town but i wouldn't want to be in the middle of nowhere & have an alloy one snap or the splines round off (unless you have a spare with you).

XT600EB - 1991 - Wiring Harness

i have an Aussie Ex-Millitary XT600 and have electrickery issues.
given the wiring behind the headlight shroud looks like a rats nest i am thining it may be time for a re-wire from scratch.

i have only seen a harness on ebay once and there is a '98 TT600 harness on there now.

Any tips on sourcing one for less than the US$250 on bike bandit ??

I look on the US E-bay and see them all the time. The TT600 will not work on your XT600. Let me know, i may one for sale.
