Yes, one fork was leaking, I have removed and fitted a new one. Not a easy task to do without the correct tool (the bar which fits inside the fork and retains the lower screw)

I have also dismantiled the carburettor, cleaned the jets, and changed the rubber manifold.Now the bike starts but sounds like a rat!

Yes, but If I unscrew it too much it also does this sound. The screw I wanna know the pruporse is the one fitted in the top, near of the valve head.

Thanks!
(I'll post more photos of the restauration lately)

I have a 1st gen 600 and it's different from your 2nd generation 600. I don't know where this screw is you type of. Looked at the microfiche and didn't even see the cable my first gen uses for decomp on the exhaust cam.

Some one will come along and help. Service manual would help too. Just have to keep at it!

All that does is hold the decomp cam assembly in place.

Your cable is F'd though! Did someone wrap the cable around a bolt??

Get a new one and there should be about .5mm to 1mm clearance from the actuator to the cam.

The old microfiche is much better...

I got my XT running this morning, new gas but the float got stuck open and a fuel line broke. Repaired. Now the carb is full of junk.

EDIT: My main jet was plugged as well as the pilot jet. Remove and clean, now it's rideable. There is a stumble around 3k rpm's though. May have to remove the carbs. Some nasty green junk. Long term storage tip: shut off fuel at petcock and drain the float bowl. That old gas really screws up the carb.

the screw you show use to retain the shaft on the cylinder head.... Don't touch it.
The screw I spoke is located on the cable (the cable get into the hole in the screw) and is not visible on your picture because it's 20cm left, and just behind the frame. I take a picture tomorow.
If you speak french, you can upload the Workshop manual called "RT N 50" here:

Is the position of the lever right acording to that photo?

YEP



1- Clearance system
2- Nut
3- Arm
4- Clearance 0.5mm when your piston is on the top position but end of compression.

Hope it helps you.

I just picked up a MooseRacing chain roller that has sealed roller bearings PN.1231-0036 . It came with the bolt and threads into the stock location with a couple of washers as shims...

Nice find !I ordered a Couple, one for top, one for Bottom. I'm having an Impossible Time tho find the SwingArm Chain Roller. Dealers are saying 1-2 weeks to get it. Not the block the chain rolls on, but there is a roller on the inside of the swing arm that is very worn on mine... After that, just gotta find a used exhaust, and someone to make me a rack to put my ammo cans on =) Anyone on here make racks for these things ? I dont weld

They would be better if you could bolt a rubber insert in to reduce vibrations to the feet...

My 2 cents...

Yes, rubber is good for comfort and long distance, but you try stand if you have wet boots? It is very annoying...
maybe there is some rubber gripped went, but I did not thought about it.

Thank you for note.

XT675 Cylinder O-ring

Good news, the XT675 big-bore project from nearly a year ago is finally going back together. I got side-tracked by a $500 YZ450f that had a cracked case. While installing the cylinder, I ran into a glitch. There is a chamfer on the bottom of the cylinder to receive the o-ring. When the cylinder is bored larger to fit the new liner, this chamfer gets much smaller (the machine shop did not re-cut it larger). Now the o-ring will not fit into the chamfer when assembling the cylinder.

Original cylinder chamfer:


Big-bore (101mm, +6mm O/S) chamfer:


A few thoughts I have:

1. Find a thinner o-ring
2. Machine the chamfer back to size
3. Don't use an o-ring
4. Use some type of gasket sealer/maker, but what kind?

Has anyone else run into this issue? What is the purpose of the o-ring? I know someone in this thread stated that is seals the crankcase. The base gasket is just a simple paper gasket, so I can see this being an issue with crank pressure/vacuum if not dealt with. I realize the crank is vented, but these pistons move such a large amount of air, I am sure the pressure/vacuum would be significant.

Hoping someone can help. I wanted to fit a tacho to my 92 XT600E.

I purchased a new tacho from ebay hoping that once I sorted the wiring and added the tacho cable from the motor everything would be OK.



Unfortunitely, the centres of the bolts holes for the bracked don't align with the triple clamp.

Does anyone know if a triple of a pre 1991 XT600 or any other model will be a direct bolt on to the headstem and forks.

I'm hoping that if I pick up a new top triple clamp and headlight bracket all will work out.

Thanks
