    That's why mine used to kick back on me. The reason I got rid of that beast. At 145lbs didn't have enough arse to kick it after it broke in after a rebuild.

    Very nice. I just started striping down my 85 TT600. How hard was it to add the lights or make it an Xt? Any threads on that? Thanks

    You can get a electic parts from a XT 600. It will most be "bolt-on" deal. You need to mount a battery box.
    i have seen them mounted right by the oil tank. Or right above the air box. You have to mount a key switch too! Hope this is a help!

    You could put an xt oil tank on it on the back and mount and xt battery box. You will have to make mounting tabs either way. However I would just put a battery eliminator under the seat after you put the electric parts to run your light and save the weight of a battery. Some question the ability to run blinkers , but if you use led turn signals and adjust the idle up a little it should be fine. I do not run blinkers and have no problem. The eliminator is about the size of a d battery. Accell makes them. Its just a capacitor. Let there be light. thumpthump.

    Yesterday I've done some trail riding with my yammie and after a while I stumbled on a nice watercrossing :evil

    I thought "when those guys on Youtube (redbull sponsored :D) also can make it threw a 1 meter deep puddle than it could be done with my tt too!" I should do this, one time must be the first time... Even I was allone this coulnd't be much of a problem for me and my 31year old beast, right?

    hi I have a 98 tt600r kickstart, a couple of times when she wouldn't start (no spark) I found it was earthing out ,as these bikes have no battery it makes all the difference ,1st time was the horn earthing out muck thrown up by the front wheel messed up around the horn so cleaned the area / connectors and all well 2nd time one of the 3 wires soldered into the turn/indicator switch came lose and earthed out so resoldered and all well,also was it raining when she was playing up ?as I had trouble in the rain when I first got mine turns out the suppressor cap was shorting out ,so dried out the cap some wd40 in there and taped up the coil lead all well ,hope this helps steve

    Hi Fantuzi

    I have the same bike and your setup looks excellent. What year/model of Yam TW200 did the screen come from? I can't find a screen associated with that model when I checked Google Images for the bike.

    Cheers

    Hi Tuscan,
    sorry, that was my mistake. Checking again the source, I found that it is from a BW50, not a TW200.

    I don't know if ebay links are allowed here. So look for the key words
    Yamaha Windschild BW50 on Ebay.de

    It seems to be an accessory shield because you dont see it on a BW50 image search on google.

    Cheers

    Ed, have you come across any street legal tires for the TT600? Mine is an 84. My riding is about 50/50.

    could any of you identify what kind of fairing is this? looks very classic, yet I'd love to have it on my 2003 ttr. thanks, friends.
