'Mystery' solved, thanks for link!
New decals , do you like them??
They look great Tritwin - Are they perforated to let the fumes out ? Cheers Glenn
Not perforated unfortunately,
hope they sit there for
Looks good. Did you make or buy from somewhere? I like the simplicity. I had been looking at some of the tank stickers and graphic kits on ebay uk but undecided.
Looking at this 1995 tt600e to buy.
Looked at and rode it. Most everything checks out ok. Only thing i was unsure of was the forks. I can feel the forks extending to their max when making small movements stationary. Never experienced this on my CRF or sport bikes. Was trying to find out more and if it is a significant concern.
Do the forks have rebound adjusters at the base, under the rubber plug? Or is it just Compression at the top?
Tried searching the web and through manuals, but no luck.
Welcome to the thread. I can’t read whatever that language it is but I think it says it’s a 1995 model is that correct?
To me it looks like it might be these specs?
Ok so you’ve got electric start, Ohlins rear suspension & I think KYB 43mm forks the same as a YZ of that time. So I’d research those forks a little more - I’m not familiar with them but some of the other guys will be - but to me it looks like a well cared for bike.
It may be that they have added more preload internally & hence it’s sitting a bit firmer against the top than usual perhaps?
good luck with the purchase. Let us know how it goes?
Cheers from down under.
Thanks. I went and saw the bike again today. Compression and rebound adjusters on the fork. Other then a little vertical slop in the rear suspension and the compression adjuster being to the max on the ohlins shock, the bike is in pretty good mechanical shape. Just ugly.
If i pull the trigger, you'll see me back here as a mess around with the bike over the winter.
The e model has a paioli usd 43fork similar to kayaba and with travel reduced to 270. Not good as kayaba however. Rear shock is a Sach without external reservoir.
S model, without electric start, has a Paioli-Kayaba (under license) 43 mm with 300 mm of travel. It’s quite different inside respect of Yz. Also the brake mount it’s different because of a brembo caliper. Rear shock it’s an Ohlins with external reservoir.
So @mikseven do you think they have put ‘S’ suspension on the ‘E’ model, or did the ‘S’ come with electric start as well?
The motor doesn’t have a kickstarter and I have not checked what the Technical Papers (title in US terms) say.
The owner had three TT-600, of different variation. He also has 3 other bikes and other automotive projects. So I could see him mixing and matching the parts. Which I am fine with.
I’ll let y’all know what develops and if I buy it.
S suspension installation on model E was very frequently (and good choice). S Model never produced with e-start.
However you can quickly check which fork you have. Paioli Kayaba 300 Mount right fork foot with plate and four bolts. Paioli 270 2 bolt integrated. Also the outer tubes are different. TTs are dark grey. Tte silver grey
Sorry for the late reply. Totally missed your question.
No, i only bought the 320 disc and adapter. It was a straight fit.
Hey guys, here is my new yamaha design on TTR “rally”, what do you think? It is not like oem, needed some hand cutting and shaping, but I’m happy with this result
Looks fantastic - Well done !
It looks awesome man! Good job. I hope the tank stickers hold up and don't bubble.
Looks smart - have you got a shot with the seat on to see the complete bike?
Hi, not yet - seat is under construction (suede top by H3D), I will post
