your can get a raiser on ebay.de from time to time, something with "heckhöher"

Also you could tension up your rear spring if possible.

Pic of mine with the item installed, vs my buddys in front:

Where'd your buddy get those crash bars. Those look pretty nice.

high rpm bogging

i have yet another xt question i was able to get my bike running reasonably good i just took it on a 250 mile trip yeasterday. It ran good except around 4800 rpms or so it starts to breakup it seems like its not getting enough fuel?. It stalled out on the freeway because of this, but when i kicked it over it started right up and it seems fine but it still does the high rpm bogg this happened to me twice the second time was to test if it had "cleaned itself out" but it had not. A little history on the bike..i have changed the fuel tank cleaned the fuel petcock cleaned the carb/s no less than 3 times fresh oil and plug . Thanks in advance for any help and i will try to get picture of the bike on here asap.

Almost sounds like a fuel starvation. Check the needle and seat for obstructions and the petcock, as well as trash in the tank.

Can someone help me figure something out? My TT600 has a leaky petcock, and I've heard from Clarke MFG that Yamaha still uses the same petcock now, as before.

But, when I call a local Yammie dealer, they have to order in a petcock for that model.

Should I just go by what Clarke says and get a regular Yammie petcock and see if it fits?

Got this for mrs ztaj, she's wanted one since she first saw one when they were released, (she had an xt125 @ the time)
I've just done about 450 k's (280 odd miles) bringing it home in heavy rain at times and it seemed really easy to ride (small compared to my bike,DR 750)
I have a question, Where is the oil filler/level indicator, I've looked but can't see it in the obvious places.
Well , it's been a while since I've been in here, but I've run into a bit of a snag with the XT. Due to lubrication failure the top end has had a melt down.
My question is....... where can I get the parts to re-build it. Cam shaft rockers, piston(oversize) rings, head, thats about it for now, the motor is still being dismantled at this stage so the list may grow.
Also the DR750 has decided it needs a bit of a re-build too so cost is an issue

Well, I decided to be a regular ADVer and tear apart my unworking petcock before any of YFF's replied. NO GASKET. NONE.

So, $.10 later, I have one. Whee.

Jatz it's a shame about the bikes. Hopefully the XT will be back up & looking good shortly.

rear shock

I took the rear shock out of my '86 XT and removed the spring. I found that there is a 3 position adjustment for the top spring retainer, Mine was set in the middle position, I moved it down 1/4" to the bottom position and also added two 1/4" shims under the spring retainer for a total of 3/4" of preload. The shims were cut from a piece of 1/4" Alum plate using a 3" and 2" ,respectivly ,hole saw to form a gaint washer. The bike feels pretty good with alot less spring sag in the rear.

JT front sprocket orientation question

Guys, this is going to sound dumb but i'm going to ask anyway. I'm in the middle of installing my JT countershaft sprocket and am confused at to which way I should install it. Should the stamped "JT" logo and tooth count: "15T" be facing out? It seems logical to me that the lettering should be outward but it just doesn't "look" right that way.

By the way, I had to use a gear puller on the stock CS sprocket that was on my bike. It was frozen solid on there and for a second thought the sprocket was going to taco before it came off the shaft!! Grease those splines to avoid some headaches in the future!
