Yup, you're right on the money. Thanks again! You can tell why I'm not riding today. How about you? We've also got the grandbabies over today, so my #1 assistant is wiping noses and organizing fun activities for the kids. The weather here has been really hot and dry for weeks. We finally are getting monsoon rains in the afternoons and it's cooled off into the 80's. The wife bought a TTR 225 this week and she's wanting to ride. Back to it... Kelly.

So a brief update on my situation. The locking ignition switch I got for an american XT turned out not only to have different plugs and switching setup, but the thing was a piece of junk. The entire lock cylinder and tumblers could be easily wiggled out with the key and the top plate was very abused looking. So I'm working on returning that.

Then on German E-bay I found not only the brand-new replacement for the frame steering lock, http://www.ebay.com/itm/380424099838...84.m1423.l2649

but I also found an ignition switch that looks like it would fit the wiring I found on my German XT. http://www.ebay.com/itm/390418937399...84.m1423.l2649

The only uncertainty about that one is that the chart in the listing indicates only that it will fit 1991 dt125-R and 1991-1995 XT600s of various type/year combinations (-K, -KH, -KN).

The thing that makes me want t buy it though, is the 6-terminal plug (small blade connectors inside) with 5 terminals in use and the extra bullet terminal black wire with white stripe. That matches the appearance of the connections found on my bike. The American one had only a white plug with bullet style connectors inside. As for the colors of the wires going into the 5-plug, I don't remember what they were.

Anyone have a photo or scan of 1991 kickstart euro-XT wiring harness pertaining to the ignition system?

I've got time to work this out, I'll probably throw a krypto lock on the front wheel for the first little while riding it.

Once I get done with the very busy DMV crap.

I cross reference part #s at Powersportsplus.com. When you click a part number and scroll down the site tells you which other bikes that part fits.

I tried that site, as far as I can tell yamaha used the same carb in the XT and TT 600 from 1983-1989 and the power valve/diaphragm and slide I need is not available stock anymore so it is after marketet hunting I go

What is weird is they advertise different years for that part when I thought they all should be the same. 1986, 30mm bore?? is this actually the same for the 1985?? and the rest of the years?

I always trust their schematic. If it says it's right, I assume it is. Sometimes part #s change over the years. I had a breakthrough on my kicker problem last night! After cross referencing parts at P-Plus, I downloaded an XT550 service manual and found a pic of how the dang thing goes together. I had it wrong. Now I can put her back together. Good luck with your search. I did see a pair of carbs on Ebay last week for about $75 US.

I just bought an old froze up one for parts.
I watched a youtube video and the guy was having the same issue running lean and popping through the pipe on acceleration.
It seems the setting up of the carbs secondary is a bit tricky to get it to open at the right time,
(synchronizing the carbs)

The steering lock is on the side of the headset rather than integrated into the ignition key. I will need to read up in the clymer manual I got with it to see if it covers removal of the cylinder.

It has the rear rack and toolbox. I'll make my own tool roll and kit, no tools were included. I'll be looking into side racks of some sort. I want to carry minimal stuff on the cross-country trip with this bike. I e-mailed dirtbagz to see if they make tube steel standoffs for the sides. They make xt225 and 250 ones.
Nice bike! It is probably the coolest XT you could ever get. Nice score.
