no, steel


Will SR 500 wheels fit on an XT?

the front has disc brake

Can you run a TT front wheel on a XT and still retain speedometer function?

no.

Are XT/TT seats interchangeable?

yes.

Do XT's/TT's use different carb's

yes

Am i correct in assuming that that the TT didn't have a lighting coil?

dont know

I'd like to possibly run a SR front rim on my XT for more street riding with my pop. Also, i'm trying to locate a replacement seat, and am wondering if a TT seat would work.

tt seat will fit, but it sucks like the xt

This bike is a kick in the ass. Rode 700 miles in 4 days last week and the bike ran perfect. started first kick every time. It barrelled up the north cascades highway passes and then tackled 2 foot deep snow covered logging road passes. i'm in love!
good luck
