I am on a SUPER tight budget with this bike so I don't think i'll be getting anything from vintage spoke :) I am thinking about this high pipe from Flow:

And then one of these straight core reverse cone mufflers from Cone:

I have posted a bit more info about the bike here if anyone is interested:

Wiseco watch out

Dude be super careful with the Wiseco. HAve you got enough clearance.

They like to seize in air and oil cooled bikes.

Mine had factory clearance of 2 thou and seized at 60mph / 100kph on the freeway.

Kedo in Germany sell their Wiseco pistons with the factory clearance marked out with a new clearance of 6 thou.

Hope it's of some use to you

Hey Brewil, I had them bore to .0035" clearance. So far so good! I also ended up getting a new header/midpipe from Flow:



And I just got a muffler from Cone Engineering in the mail yesterday so I will be getting that set up here in the next couple of weeks.

Here's the muffler mocked up:



I also picked up a stator, flywheel, and cdi from an sr500 that I plan on swapping in. Does anybody have a wiring diagram for a 80-81 US model XT500 with the CDI??

That pipe will probably work just fine, but, muffle much ? Doubtful.
I like the Yam 500s, I have a couple of XTs , one that I dug out of a dumpster and another I bought cheap and stuck at auction sans paperwork.

appearance & performance pretty decent.
i had the same header with a supertrapp muffler, made for painful riding.
don't forget to rubber-mount it in 2 places

I started the bike up so I could get a feel for what it will sound like, I think it is just about perfect sounding. Noticeably quieter than my old pipe :)

Cool bike!

Brings back memories...

My dad had one when I was a kid. In the summers I used to hang out at the workshop where we stored our motorcycles. I usually rode mine all day, but occasionally would get the urge (and courage!) to ride something with a bit more power than a DT80 or XR100...

I couldn't reach the ground while sitting on it, so I would set a milk crate in the middle of the drive, roll the bike out to it, climb on and go. Of course, there was no stopping until I got back to the crate, but luckily enough, I never had an issue.

Man, that thing was an absolute animal compared to the little bikes I was used to riding!

Awesome story! Since owning the bike I have run into a number of people who have some sort of connection to an XT/TT500.

Not much has changed with the bike, i've just been having fun with it as is. Took it up in the hills the other day:





Actually, I did find an XS650 frontend for pretty cheap and I started mocking up the FZR600 rotor with the R6 caliper:



Need to make a bracket and a spacer, paint the wheel and replace the fork seals and it should be ready to bolt on. Oh, and I need some new tires in a bad way. I am thinking some Shinko 705s.
