    It's a decent fit, but not as good as on my other motorcycles. It's held on by magnets and designed for motorcycles with flat tanks, but the magnet's are strong enough to keep it on the tank. Bought it at the Lidl, a german supermarket, don't know if you can find it anywhere else.

    I've not had one with magnets but from my experience of my riding style, I'll be sticking with one that's tied down fast

    My riding style is quite fast, but the magnet's are really strong. I wouldn't put my fingers between the tank and the magnet's...

    The red and silver colour scheme looks way better than mine with blue and yellow, looks so much better

    That's a testament to the Yami XTs that it can be so abused and still operate, well I'm assuming it still operates as the fuel would have been long taken. Not so sure about the extra fuel been held in place be elec cables from the outboard battery. I note the rear rack has broken off, not surprising, there made to carry much weight. Makes my old girl look like a much loved Tenere.

    Just put my "Maltese" graphics on my US conversion I did back in 2003.[​IMG][/IMG]

    The graphic kit came with both left and right sweeping fender graphics. I ruined the correct orientation graphic so I put the other on, then I ruined one of the checker blocks and got creative with my humor to fix it.[​IMG][/IMG]

    I found out that oversized foot pegs listed for a TW 200 bolt right on!

    I added a 1990 3AJ Tenere to my garage yesterday.

    Its not perfect, and whit 72k kms on the clock I think it needs a new piston, as it smells burned oil as it runs. Cosmetically not perfec ither, has some corrotion here and there on bolts and the spokes as front faring dont sit nice to the tank after some erlier fall (front subframe bent a little). Front brake disc in need of replace also. Got it cheap thro and think it will be a fine bike after some upgrades.
    It has this colorschame:

    And bike as it is (seller pic thro)

    By the way, is the XT600 cylinder borable, or is it coated?
