A3 I think, but I measure accurately and send you a details with more pictures. Second question answer: you right! 3 plastic screws.

Take a look at this video recorded three month ago before SOPA remove it (music copyright violation).

Some more tank pics. Very easy to fit and provides some good crash protection apparently.

Looking at the Acerbis tank on justgastanks.com and it states that it fits 95-02 XT600s. Do you think it would also fit a '90 model XTE? I thought '90-'95 had no changes in the frame? I could be wrong though.

Olas, no it wont. Theres a little difference in the frame, but the killer is the older design plastic, so you need to chan the following to a post 1996 model: Seat, sidecovers and rear fender together wint the gastank. Otherwise it wont work, so no easy way.

Thanks, Jens.

That's a bummer. I'd like to find a plastic tank for my '90...I thought they made them. Did they stop production on these?

For you guys that have painted your engines, I was wondering what kind of paint you guys used. I started a thread in the garage but thought Id ask here. Im thinking I want to keep heat disapation in mind. I dont care if its from a rattlecan, or if I have to spray it with a gun. Im going to paint the complete engine, if I figure I can get some good paint for it, any advice/help is welcome. I would like some decent quality paint, but not looking for top quality, unless the price is right.

I do live in Canada as well, so I have to be able to get it up here as well.

Question Help

Anyone pls HELP ME
Is this shock adjustable? (LEFT)
It is from yamaha XT600 1986 - there's something missing, or it can add air (valve on top).

My XT 600 has no place for a valve. The 2nd shock is off a TT600. The TT 600 shock has a remote res. on it. Thump-On!!

Hello bosley,

The shock on the left appears to be a stock XT600 shock that has been modified with a Schrader valve added at the top of the resivoir. This valve allows the shock to be refilled with nitrogen when needed. This shock also can be adjusted for preload (currently in the stiffest position of three). Preload is adjusted by moving the upper spring collar which is held in place with a large C clip (see other groves on shock body). At the bottom there is a damping adjuster which can be turned.

As Big Ed has previously pointed out the shock on the right looks like a TT unit. I have no personal experience with the TT shock but from seeing other peoples pictures I would say it's a TT unit & Big ED knows his stuff!

All the best,
Pawlie

Hello Preppypyro,

FWIW:

I am no paint pro but here is what I did to paint my XT engine and it seems to be holding up quite well.

Parts that were blasted clean (to bare alu) at machine shop:

Cleaned and scrubbed with solution of water and "Sprayclean" household cleaner. Thoroughly dryed. Wiped with Pro Form final wipe solvent, Lightly primed with etch primer. Painted with black and then clear coated for finish (number of coats and sanding inbetween, up to you).

Parts with remaining old paint:

Surface thoroughly scuffed, repeat cleaning/drying as above, then black, then clear.

I used Plasti-kote engine enamel # 203 universal black and# 229 clear. Proform final wipe

I would say the clear has yellowed/darkened a little but frankly this is not very noticable.

Many will say to leave the head unpainted for best heat dissipation.

I suspect the respray paint I put on the head will not last too long. There was no stock paint left on the head at the time of rebuild. It was long gone due to heat.

I am in Canada too, these paints are at Lordco auto parts and probably others!

Good luck

Pawlie
