I tried to add the TT choke plunger to (1986 bike) but it got in the way of the fuel tap on my Clarke tank . Have an Acerbis tank on the shelf same situation there. I went back to the handlebar mounted (stock) set up.

Cheers,
Pawlie


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.[/QUOTE]

My spark was very tiny as well mate, was expecting more but it still started the bike? is you plug wet? can you smell fuel? try unscrewing the float chamber/drain valve & let some fuel piss out on to the floor.

You need not be so timid with the carburetor. The rubber/plastic boot will push up out of the way of the wrench. Just put a 12mm wrench on it, and lefty-loosey.

Sorry,

I'm gonna hold on to it for now and have another crack at fitting up the TT choke plunger another time.

thanks

Thanks for the responses and the help, I think. When I said narrower I did not mean narrower than 12mm, but closer to the actual width of the brass nut so as not to slip off the side of it.

Yep 12mm, we wasn't measuring the width of the nut, a 12mm spanner is the size you need it has 12mm written on it.

Nice setup. I like the black on black
What type of exhaust is that? Does it look like a direct attach or was it a one off job?
