Would like to transform a Yamaha TT600RE

Hello

Just bought a Yamaha TT600RE 2004 and are going to change the front fork for a first step to change this bike. Yes many will say why don,t buy a TT600R right away, no I like to have a E-start and I have own a KTM690EnduroR 2011 also but really like this old engine of Yamaha.

The front fork will come from a KTM of course a WP fork with complete brake and disc. However I want to raise the bike in the back but there are no raise bones to buy or does anyone knows where I can buy them? Öhlins rear shock is hard to find and Öhlins would not built one, I have asked.

I also want a spare rear wheel for road and heard about XT600 will perhaps fit och KTM LC4 wheel, both with cushdrive. Can anyone confirm that please?

Will post some pics when I mount the fork on the bike.

This is how the TT600RE looks today




Here is some pics what I did to my Yamaha XT660R but it is sold now

Some TT600R came with a cush drive hub standard here in Australia, maybe the last of the electric start ones, not too sure.

Thanks for reply, seems that only TTRE has the cush drive here in europe. Heard from a german forum that I can use a TTR rear wheel with the other spacers fron the same.

The shock and forks from a TTR600 will bolt right on your TT600RE. Worlds better suspension that also will raise your bike some, but you probably know this since you mentioned Öhlins ...


I fitted a rear wheel from a 2001 ktm EXC400 to my TT600RE with a little work, just some spacers under the brake disk and some other simple stuff. No cush drive though.


I understand you like the old school yamaha bikes. Simple, reliable, not high performance machines but will run forever.

Thanks G600. Has found a german guy who fitted a LC4 rear wheel to his TT600RE with another spacer. Got the writing how the spacer look like and waiting for a KTM rear wheel to test on it!

Suspension was terrible on this bike and had to change it fast. Found a Front fork with tripple clamps from a KTM450 Steve Ramon Edition 2005.
The front wheel came from a Shineray XY250 and it is bolt on the KTM front fork. I went to a mehanic wotkshop and they did a copy of the KTM stem to fit with the TTRE
bearings and it went really easy for those how got right machines. :)
The front headlight is a Acerbis Halo. A funny thing is that I took the caliper holder from the KTM and mounted it to the stock TT600RE caliper and it fitted straight on and the brakepads are identical
how could I have this luck?

Now I wainting for a rear KTM wheel to be modified with a spacer, thanks again from 3rad from helping about the spacer. The winter planning is to paint the frame black but now I only want to test the bike.

Here is some picture, hope someone get some idea to do the same mod!

Wow! Really really like the XT 660 R Black and white Version! Perfect!

I only would have changed the swing arm in addition (the aluminium supermoto one)


Is this an 18" rear wheel?
And how did you fix the Supermoto-tank-plastics, did you buy a R-gasoline tank, because of the different fixing points for the plastics?

I had both, the TT 600 RE and the XT 660 (X-Version), liked the motor of the TT too, but in comparison to the XT 660 motor, it was like driving in slow motion mode ;-)

Hello

Thanks very much. Believe I have tried to find a supermoto rear arm but not. I loan one from a friend and tested it. Perfect fit BUT I had to have it back! :(
Look here when I fitted the rear arm.

And here when the bike was finished for the first time!

Correct it is a 18" excel from offtheroad.de bought a XTR hub and mounted the 18" on it.

About the plastics, if you see I had to cut the panel a little under the seat to fit the X plastics. It was perfect fit and looked damn hairy, really liked the look of the XTR.

Yes I say it too the XT if revs a lot better than TT
But it is to heavy so the fun on gravels are much more fun with the TT

Look here also
