How about your yamaha dealer? Or, Sometimes E-bay has a cheap TT600 carb. I run a TT600 carb on my XT600. Runs good.

1986 XT600 carb

I am in the midst of taking the carb apart and am unsure of how to get the brass nut that holds the choke assembly in place on the body of the carb. I do not want to damage the brass nut, so is it necessary to pull this off and if so is there a special way/tool? Thanks for any help.

have you tried using the correct size open end wrench? I just did this last week, not sure where the problem lies for you..

I put a couple miles on my bike today. It felt nice and smooth, but it didnt feel planted. Im not sure if its tire pressure or just cold tires on a cold road.

The tires are prolly bout 2 years old but have very low miles.(still have some nubbs on teh edges)

Fired up the XT for the first time this year. 40 degrees here finally. When it's cold it takes about 20+ kicks for it to light off. Me thinks the choke circuit isn't rich enough. Good workout though. Took it for a spin around the block and added some seafoam to the gas and oil to the oil tank.

Had an issue with it flaming out or just quitting last year. Ran fine today though.

You guys that are putting a TT choke on your XT, beware that the steel fuel tank petcock gets in the way of the "new" knob on the choke. I had to customize mine a bit. That handlebar choke deal was junk so I just reach down now.

thanks Canon

Thanks Canon, I did have the proper size wrench on there but it is blocked a little by the black plastic trim. I am glad you mentioned that you just took your apart, I feel more confident now, but I will look for narrower wrench. Thanks
