4H works well enough if you do not go too fast.

Yes, I had to up the mains in both carbs and the needle setings [the reason behind the change]. The result is an awsome top end rush that will easily over rev if you don't shift in time. Before it was very flat with no acceleration at high RPM.The high end rush is almost 2 stroke on nature. Totally changed the nature of the bike with no loss of tourqe.

Made another change to the xt600 today. I removed the xt oil tank from the rear left side and installed an oil tank from a tt600 that goes in the frame where my battry box was. I'm running a battry eliminator and removed the battry box. This change moves the oil tank to a safer area and moves the wieght lower and more centralized. I can also run a wider rear tire.

noise and parts for sale

well guys I just sold my XT600 so I will be leaving you and heading back to my KTM 640 ADV thread...

Before I go I want to mention that I have a spare rear wheel for sale and a spare tranny. PM me if interested.

I bought both when doing the rebuild but my tranny was good so did not need the spare I bought and the wheel I bought to make quick changes from streets to knobbies. The guy talked me down enough I did not want to be generous and hand over the spares!

So rear wheel is $90 plus shipping (but I will do the cheapest possible), and the tranny is $45 with shipping. I will be shipping these out of Kingston, Ontario Canada.

And that noise racheting from the right side is the auto decomp sticking is it not???

The only racheting noise I have ever heard comes from the kickstart when the motor is running and you are holding the kickstart lever down. It should stop when you release it. The noise comes from the kick shaft area. If you hear any from the decompression area you may have the arm adjusted too tight. There should be some play before it engages.

I fitted the Metzeler Enduro 3 Sahara tyres and am very happy with them.
Fitted the 130/80 size on the rear so it looks a bit fatter than standard.

Seem to be a good dual purpose as I ride about 50% road and 50% dirt.
