- CustomRewind.Com does not answer the phone or eMail.

Any Ideas?
I was also interested in this topic a while ago, but received no responses. Since I have also found no information on replacement new stators anywhere on the web, I feel this is a worthy subject of discussion.

It is especially important to me as I plan to go cross country on the old XT. While it most likely does have only the original 11k on it (and counting), it's important to me to have one of every electrical component at least in someone's hands ready to ship, if not on the bike. The electrical/ignition system is the most likely to fail of any on the running engine (fuel, valve train, etc.)

I have had very good experiences with Ricky Stator. While they may not know if they can rewind it without a photo, which does sound strange, every stator they wind has a lifetime warranty, no questions asked. At least this was true of the replacement stators they sold as a whole unit.

So I wonder if used or even fried stators from this bike would turn up so that we may have a rewound spare? Last ebay search yielded only a very expensive used one or two.

Except for the gizmo that is apparently attached to our XT stators (is it a crank position sensor?), a rewind is a simple thing in theory. (New wires and connectors could get slightly more complicated since the connectors avaliable at retail places usually suck ass in quality.) There is even someone on the DIY site Instructables who rewinds a 150cc scooter stator with great success after the second attempt, who provides valuable insights such as making sure of no sharp edges and finding the right wire from a motor rewinding shop.

@ Bosley: Lucky Man!

@ A-Wind, Zombie_Stomp: It costs about 150-180 for a professional stator overhaul and its worth the penny/cent.
You can do it yourself with the adequate equipment. Here are some examples (german text):

XT 600

Thanks for the idea guys.

I definitely want it to be done professionally. My bike developed a no spark condition and I want certainty (although I already checked/verified every other possible player to be OK)

Thanks for the Ricky Stator suggestion, I might fall back on using them, but for now I would like to see if there is anybody who is specializing in XT600 stators.

I was thinking about sending it to (former Zweitakt) Ernst Teichmann in Munich/Germany, but I heard that his reputation is no longer what it used to be (particularly that he is outsourcing the work to be done cheaply with less quality).

Having said that, I don't mind sending it to a professional place in Germany or anywhere else in the world, as long as the job is done well and made to last.

@Bosely, your 3rd picture had more details. Maybe that's why it was taken down.

Hey guys... I have a 2002 600E and am wondering if anyone knows if the mid 90s side covers/front fender will fit ? I see the side covers look to be a slightly differnt cut but the attachments seem to be in the same places. I want black plastics and can get a decent new set from the US for around 1/3 the cost of ordering a set here. The part numbers I am looking to buy are 3TB prefixed if that helps... :)

Thanks

They fit from the models of 1995 onwards. They are listed with the type 3TB and additionally with 4PT. The older 3TB from 90-94 are a different design.

The difference can be seen best in the comparison below. Lampmask, tank, sidepannels, seat and rearcover have been changed. If you go for the older ones, you will have a gap in the front at the tank and i am not sure if it will fit at the back.

XT600 Piston slap help ?

Took me a while to find the right place, but i think this is it.

Just got a 1990 XT600, 21k Miles and after driving it 200 miles home from previous owner.
(who had the bike for 2years, and just changed oil)

2.7lt per manufacturer specs and oil still read low (as ive read online is super common for xt's unless you drive them around for 10miles)

Anyway, then, and now... it makes lots of engine noise, i dont know Lots about taking apart a motor, but i just
did the Valve Clearances, and the noise still remains. (all 4 were out of spec) So i'm wondering if someone could lend an ear to
the video below to see if they hear if perhaps it could be Cam Belt, or Piston.



I'm more then willing to try and take the top end off, to see what i see... but never having done it before, i tried to find
a good tutorial... couldn't find for xt600, so figured i would ask here.
Cheers !

Sounds like slap to me. Or low oil.

Check this series on XT600 engine dismantle / reassemble. A fascinating resource.

Good luck.

XT600 engines are built with a rather large piston clearance, so some piston slap on XT600s would be considered NORMAL, even desired.

Having said that, the noise on your video IS way too excessive. To me it sounds like someone (you) might have seriously messed up the valve clearances due to not correctly following procedure.
