The XT600 Thread

Ok, since all of the other makes seem to have their own threads, I thought I'd start a thread for the XT600, outcast that it seems to be. Hope we can share pics/info/tips since they're few and far between here in the states.

Here's a few pics of me on my 1990 XT600 this afternoon playing in the snow:

Her first trip out in the snow:



This ain't so bad:





All done and back in the shed:

Good luck finding the tank. :) From the research I'd done, they appear decently hard to come by, unless you go through one of the European places.

As for tires, I've currently got some MT-21's w/ about 2k on there. They were pretty new when I picked up the bike, should have changed them out for something a little more street friendly. I've got a set of the Mefo Explorers waiting to go on sometime this spring. In the snow we got here, I couldn't get much traction. I've got a small hill on the side of my house and couldn't make it up the hill, had to try to get turned around and head back to the lower half of my yard. I think w/ some studs, they might do better, but I doubt I'll be finding that out anytime soon.

Suspension Info

I had contacted WP Suspension about if they had anything for my bike, or a US dealer. They had a guy named Jim Lindemann out of California contact me with the following info:

We can also rebuild the stock shock to new, about $175.



See: www.wpsuspension.com.
If you'd like his contact info, I can get it for you.

I rented one in New Zealand last October and had a blast with it, rode 50/50 gravel and twisty tarmac. I'm trying to rent one again for this weekend!

What kind of tank do you have on there?

That looks to be the Tenere large tank, at least based on other pictures I've seen of the tank.

Newbie - XT600S questions

Hi All... I have a 1986 xt600... needs an oil cooler installed before spring... now living in Arizona... no pictures yet, but, looking to try first with 3/8" oil hose; from tank outlet, to, cooler mounted under head on right side and below twin pipes, exiting left and down to sump... initially, I am planning to just drop down in space between lower case and bash plate... just commuting for now, do not expect to utilize bash plate until final fitting and trim are in place... since I still have the original oil pump, my thought is to not increase the load on the pump by asking it to push the oil back to the tank through the cooler... eventually would like to install a 'low oil sensor' in the tank...

Thoughts or recommendations???
'to do no harm' is a priority

Cheers
Mike

I would stay away from the exhaust. You are trying to eliminate heat , not absorb radiant heat. The front left beside the cylinder is a more common location. It is also the cooler side of the motor. The oil line would run from the tank down the left side above the clutch cable to the cooler, then back and down into the sump as before. THUMPTHUMP

ok here's mine....
Bought new in 2005, now done 38000kms with no problems. Gets used for play, commuting 114kms per day, adventure rides and just whenever I need to go somewhere. Would have liked an F650GSD but at twice the price of one of these I would have been crazy. It took me a while but I love this bike now. It aint the most glamorous but does everything I ask of it and then some.

Andy.
