If you go to boats.net & select your bike & then select something like your swingarm, then select (for an example) part 28, it will give you all the other bikes that use this part.

Or you can put that part number (90387-121H1-00) in to Google and Ebay & find the part that way as it will be used on many Yamaha bikes.

Not sure how many miles are on your front forks but they might be due for new fork oil. Mine came out looking like espresso and was likely contaminated with moisture due to outside storage. I also went with a heavier weight and new springs. The "dive" issue never went away completely for me but with new springs and fork oil it is good enough.

As far as emulators, I asked a Racetek rep at the IMS show in California about the XT. He said they install a generic kit that works on any conventional 41mm oil-dampening fork. I plan to approach them before hitting the track again.

ADD: By the way, what make rotor did you go with?

Hey Justin,

I didn't rebuild the calipers/master cylinder, but I know it won't make enough of a difference. The caliper body flexes, and the bolt pushing the master cylinder (from the lever) just makes the feel mucky. I'd like to get a decent remote reservoir Nissin master cylinder, or a decent 16x18 radial. I did try a brembo knock off 16x18 - improved feel a lot, but the crappy build quality meant that let any back pressure out, clamping the caliper on. 16x18 with only a two piston caliper gave good feel and ok, but not great power. still needed two-three fingers with a bit of strength for stoppies. At a guess, I'd say that with a four piston caliper, the 16x18 would be pretty good.

On that note, I'd also like to try another caliper, probably a four pot caliper off a FZR250 (3LN). I've used these on my old SRX6, and my current SRX6 appears to use one too. Probably have to make a relocating bracket, which will be a bit of a challenge for me.

I usually try to change the fork oil once a year of so and use 15 wt oil. The stock springs are pretty soft, so the wish list also includes heavier springs and emulators. Without emulators, the damper rod setup will just never do everything well, no matter how well it is tuned. If the bike parts fairy does come along, I'll see if anyone locally can supply the generic 41mm emulators.

The disc is from EBC and comes with the relocating bracket. If you're going with a non-stock caliper, then I reckon go with the early R1 disc, since they'd be cheaper and easier to get a hold of.

Cheers,
Phil

Trouble Starting 1985 XT600

Hi all.... I've been lurking here for a while, and just last week picked up a 1985 XT600. It seems to be running really well, but I have a tough time starting it. I've looked through the forums here and read many versions of the kickstart procedure, but my bike seems a little odd in that I'm finding that the only way I can get 'er to start is to hold the throttle wide-open and just kick the s*** out of it. Also, the PO said that it 'doesn't like the choke'. Is this odd for a cold bike?

Is it unusual to need the throttle open when kickstarting, and if so, does it point to any potential problems that need to be addressed?

Thanks all (in advance)!!

Joe

I've got a 1985 bike,43f model.
From cold mine likes choke & a tiny bit of throttle,I get the piston just over TDC & swing on the kickstart,usually starts between 1 & 3 kicks,even if it's been stood for a couple of weeks.I only give it full bore when trying to clean the plug if it's flooded,but it's ages since that last happened,you seem to have a unusual way of starting the beast.
I'd check the plug see what the mixture looks like,mine likes choke when it's cold,(quite often over here).
If you have'nt already done so you should give it a good service,have a look what jets are in the carb,check the airfilters good.You never know what the PO's maintainance was like until you inspect stuff

Thanks Mark! I was just messing with it, and am able to get it started consistently now, but ONLY with the throttle WFO.... Unfortunately, now it won't idle.... I'm going to have a 'professional' tune up done next weekend... I want to get a good 'baseline' and then I'll do the maintenance, but for now I need to get it running 'right'

3TB exhaust/frame

On 3TB model, exhaust is a part of frame. Does anyone have some experience how it works, especially with some aftermarket exhaust.
Is it necessery to make it stronger for hard luggage?

I would just mount a bar/pipe/piece of metal as to duplicate the newer bikes frame. Mount it from the right passenger peg and up/backwards towards the exhaust and frame.

I even think that some laser exhausts for the early years included such a piece of metal

There is some talk on XT600.de about this, here.

XT Adventure Accessories

Hi Fellas. I was messing around on the internet looking for ideas for mounting panniers and came across this website.

https://tciproductsusa.com/index.php...th=144_167_192

It has a few farkles specifically for an XT600 that I thought you may be interested in. Maybe you new about this site, but I didn't. Prices seem kinda high, but I have not been able to find much for XT specific add-ons.

Luggage racks, wind screens, panniers and such. Just thought I would pass it along since XT accessories are so rare, at least in the states. Made in USA.
