hm... I have no idea about the frames but I see a nice centre stand on this pic! It would make the chain lubricating a joy!
Any availability (frack knows how it has to be spelled :) of this?

I have done some fuel consumption testing on the high speed dirt roads and it is returning about 4.3L/100km or 23km/L which I am very happy with.

Nice beast, where did you get the acerbis tank? I was checking the acerbis webshop (zero usability, tho, really annoying place) and the tanks says XT 600 95/02 BLACK 0001599.090. Does it fit to my 2004/2005 model?

not to mention the acerbis site went: We inform you that from 21/05/2012 onwards will no longer be possible to order items from this site. Contact an Acerbis dealer for purchase information

Now, before dark I put up the new stainless pegs (by Bosley) with my daughter. She helped a lot :)

There was a little play with the springs (I greased everything well, of course) but all fits properly now.









Haven't ridden yet but stading on them is awesome so big improvement from the stock one!

I have pivit pegs on my XT660R... Hope they fit the XT600 I hope to replace it with...
If not these Bosley one might be worth looking at..

@ Zombie Stomp: Your model looks like a 2KF/2NF. The only way to get some for this model is to ask in some forums or to built one youself. I have mine from Hepco&Becker, searched for them on ebay for a year to get a fitting one. As far as i know they arent interchangable. There are different ones for the model 87-89, 90-94 an 95-03.

@ bosley: Nice modifications. Need to get mine on the dynamometer when i am done setting the carburettor up. I am testing my setup with an lambda sensor at the moment.
I have a modified airbox with a mesh on the top, K&N airfilter, modified carburettor, Stage 2 camshaft with more and longer valve lift, larger stainless mainfold and a LeoVince Exhaust.






@ pappito: It is very nice to lubricate the chain. But I leave that to the chainoiler a friend of mine developed himself.
But it is good to change bothe tires/rims at the same time. I had loosen all bolts and was about to take the rim out when the tire company figured out that my reartire was sent back to their main depot. :(

I purchased the tank from this store - http://www.motorcyclesuperstore.com....600-95-06.html
I am very happy with their service and communication. I was told when I ordered it that there would be a 3 month wait as a black tank was a back order from Acerbis. I was given the option of getting my money back a couple of times but I was happy to wait and it was on my door exactly 3 months later.

Stator Rewind

Stator Rewind Q:

Any recommendations for stator rewind?

- Electrex/Electrosport seem to not deal with old XT's any more.
- Ricky Stator asked me for a pic of my stator first , so they can tell if it can be done - NOT TOO ENCOURAGING
- CustomRewind.Com does not answer the phone or eMail.

Any Ideas?
