    Hey Bruce,
    I'm gonna chime in here with a possible scenario that happened to me on a non XT machine. Worth checking into.

    Bike would run great for 5-10 min then warm up and off idle response would go wonky(bog)...Bike would continue to run well at higher revs/ throttle openings.
    I chased perceived carb issues even swapped out carbs with a buddy who had the same bike.
    Exact same symptoms would show up. Pulling out my hair at this point and a guy on a forum pipes up and says check your coil!
    Coil changed...Instant solution to problem!
    Apparently there is more resistance in the electrical (spark)at idle/low revs..... Combine resistance + heat degradation =Poor spark at just off idle/. Again bike would rev up and pull hard at higher engine speed.
    Worth investigating.
    Good luck! Love your TT!

    Thanks for the input, Pawlie. I don't think that's what's happening here but I'm willing to look into any avenue at this point. I have an XT600 that has a known good coil I can try.
    I'll give it a shot and report back.

    Small little update on the TT again: I did some work on the back end of the bike.
    - New exhaust
    - New fender
    - New taillight/licenseplate holder
    - New fenderbag

    The sound of the exhaust was absolutely obscene so i had to fabricate a baffle for it, worked out quite alright :)

    Only 1 little hurdle to overcome; the taillight is led, so naturally, 12 volt DC required. The TT generates 6 volt AC :) But i think i can come up with something to make it work.

    Looking good Glenn!
    I’ve nearly got mine installed on the XT.
    Made a little bracket to hold the reservoir in a similar place to the TT.

    Hi OzCRU , Thanks mate - I was given rubbers that fit round the frame and reservoir by the people that rebuilt the shock . I was going to use metal cable ties but they didn't look right - you may have noticed that one cable tie is black and the other is green , I ran out of black ones ! All I've got to do now is re-wire the front wiring loom with waterproof connectors . . . . . . but that's a project for the winter ! Can't wait to see your's fitted to the XT , Cheers Glenn

    I made this set up a few years ago. eBay DG muffler with several DB killer inserts so I can tone it down for ADV (roads/people) or in forests, or run the bigger insert at home. Bought a couple of stainless bends from an exhaust shop, quick bit of stainless MIG-ing and voila. The headers are the OTR ones. I likem.

    Forks are from a TT600s. It’s a Paioli on Kayaba License. It’s almost the same. The brake caliper is Brembo instead of Nissin.

    I have the same with some enhancements in order to have a better response on fast tracks

    Thanks for that
    Have you got shots of the right hand side and did you modify the brake pedal? From memory the brake pedal travel is limited by the frame and by lowering the pegs the brake would be too high. How did you solve?
    Cheers

    You are right, I have lowered footpegs by 30mm so there was lever too high....I needed to cut some lines into lever and bend it down, than weld cut lines, no big deal
