Primary jets

I'm still waiting on another Keihin jet that I think might fit as a secondary main. However, along the way I found this source for primary carb jets: http://www.motorcyclecarbs.com/Teike...Parts_C784.cfm. Not sure whether this is the long or short pilot jet.
As previusly mentioned, these folks are sure nice on the phone -- I ordered that Keihin jet from them.

Rear Brake Pads

There is a slight difference between the pre 92/post 92 rear brake pads. The location of the spring attachment point is further apart on the post 92. I was able to purchase the later model springs from Babbits for just a few bucks. I have not installed the springs/pads yet, but they look like all will work.

On another note: I purchased two oil filters for my 1986 XT350 on ebay and they ended up being the wrong ones. The seller refunded my money, but did not want the filters back. Here is the ebay link http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...TQ:MOTORS:1123

If they will fit your bike let me know and I will mail them to you.

BTW they are Wix 24936 filters.

Laugh

I got a few pictures of my bike so I figured I'd share.

Got rid of this tired old trailwing for a mt21, much better off and on road

Just shoing off how I mounted the cans, the springs really quieted every thing up. FYI They are seat springs off of a walker mower but I'm sure any old springs would work.


The Acerbis headlight, makes the bike look younger but man is it lame... Not recomended for night riding. I am currently looking for some sort of upgrade.

And for the best part... My custom, budget, "dash"

It's a bad angle, the zune dosen't block the tach or speedo.
The rest are here

Extra fuel?

One of the many great things about the XT, that small 16oz of fuel could get him another 50 miles

secondary jets

Okay, I give up trying to find main jets for the secondary carb. So I rolled my own. Assuming this photo uploads: the one on the left has the right outside dimensions (8mm, 1mm pitch) but way-wrong bore. Second one has 5x0.8 thread, and I seem to have a million of these lying around. Drilled/tapped to put them together (3rd jet, after running through the 8x1 die). The 4th jet is what it's supposed to look like.
Yeah kinda crude, but I just used hand tools. And it works, dammit.

God only knows, but maybe out of an early '70s Honda Four (had a couple of those). I started with about 12 of those first jets (probably three sets of four), and a gazillion of the 5mm threaded ones (all different sizes). I suspect these "#2" jets were used in about everything.

I wrecked a few before figuring out how to use a die holder as a vice: put in a little piece of metal to keep the jet from screwing through the die whist drilling on it. (Hope that's clear enough to picture.)

Gonna try to screw it all back out tonight to swap the 5mm jet out. It went in clean enough, so I don't think it'll be a wreck.

That motorcycle carbs link has about everything except these secondary main jets. (That's just about everything I really need right now.)

Hi all, I was very happy to see an XT thread going. Great bike, obvious limitations here and there but tons of fun and great for lots of things.

I will have some carb questions coming soon but for now I was wondering if someone could enlighten on checking the valve clearances. I was told by a local mechanic that they are set from the factory and they don't need to be adjusted. Is there truth to this? If not any insight on how to check the valve adjustments would be great. Thanks!

Alright! I'm tired of my forks crappin out on me!

How can I keep them from blowing a seal so often? I swear I have only riden the thing 4 times since the last time I replaced them and they are leaking again

Maybe I should get a DRZ?

I remember someone talking about a fork swap?

While I'm at it I would also like a little more power so maybe I will re-jet it and find a slip one muffler.
