Thank you! Hope it works well.
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 :)
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.
One XT and 2 TT's here. Thanks!
Nice! I would love to get me a TT. Got any pics?
I've got no photos of mine but there is one on Craigslist in Kalispell, needs new plastics but looks in good shape firstname.lastname@example.org

Dan, I like your progress. I have an XT listed on Craigslist now, #4601016381 that has a photo of mine.
