Someone with an XT350 manual help me please, I've misplaced mine.....

The new rings are marked with RN on the face, I'm assuming that means up. Correct?
One ring is Square edged, the other has a slight bevel.
What ring is the top (squared I think) and does the beveled ring go with bevel up or down?

One more what torque is the headbolts?

Thanks

I'm going to keep looking for that danged book but I'd really like to get this back together tonight....

Did you leave the old on the cylinder maybe? IT might need needed replacing.
I took it off when I sent the jug off and had the sleeve replaced.

Hey guys how do I replace fork oil... I have the clymers manual but it doesn't really explain it. I want to also replace the seals and dust covers. Do I just undo the bottom allen key bolts to let the oil out? ( I'm trying to do it without removing the shocks if possible)

I didn't say you need "the" Yamatool. I said you need "a" tool. I never had the special Yamatool for the float height or the valves. I made my own. I was trying to point out you can't do it with a 10mm wrench and a flatblade screwdriver like you can most other dual sports.

Z: I assume you know the difference between oil control and the two compression rings. The bevel ring goes in the middle and all markings face up. Check your PM's.

Thanks for the offer, just came in from work.

Well this looks interesting. Found this under 2000 XT 350 heading. I'm not exactly sure what the size jets are in this or if it'll even fit our bike though? Would be nice if it had some different pilot jets and main, secondary jets though.

520 Drive Chain

I bought a 2000 XT-350 and was wondering about the conversion from the 428 to the 520 chain and sprockets. The parts guy at the local Yamaha dealer said the old chain was good enough for the bike and the 520 chain wasn't needed along with being too large for the bike. Truth or is the parts guy full of crap?

I'm not really sure what to do here either. I guess it really depends on how hard you ride (apparently some people snap 420's easily). But I really don't wanna be one of those guys with a busted engine block because my 420 chain snapped in two. I wish someone could tell me exactly which sprockets at stock and the length of chain needed to go the 520 route. Sprocket Specialis has the the conversion kit but their is no price on the website and I have yet to call.

Ya know, I don't think I have really had to use choke at all. That is not typical with this bike, correct?

I have to choke mine when its cold (I live in Las Vegas so cold is relative) but once she's warms it starts up easily with no choke and like a half kick.

Did these bikes come stock with fuel petcocks that had the screens underneath them, the ones you can just unscrew from the bottom? Mine doesn't have that so i'm just curious if maybe it has been replaced before.

My old 83 xt 200 i had before this just had a little cap you could unscrew on the bottom of the petcock to clean it out. it was really nice
