That could easily be fixed with some cutting, but the shock itself is also something like 2 inches too long. I kinda knew that going in, but was hoping I could make it work. Back to the drawing board.
How much do you want for your TT600 shock?

I checked everything and there is current going to the two plugs inside the tail light but still no lights. What else could be the problem? Thanks in advanced

My brother and I finally found the problem. The ground wire was broken but still attached to the terminal so we never thought of that but thanks anyways.

Another question, does anybody knows if a 130 rear tire would fit on the stock swing arm? I'm currently running a 17'' rear wheel. A 2.50 to be exact and would like a little bit more tire and no, I'm not the kind of guy that needs the widest tire but I think anything below 110 tire looks like a bicycle tire.

parting out 2000 xt350

Posted this on the flea market. Hit a rock, fried the motor. Parting out everything else. All of it in very good condition. Near new carb with 6 hours on it, Cycle Racks rack, Clarke tank. Looking to get 1/2 of list prices. PM me with questions or requests. I'm on the Western Slope of Colorado. If you're close enough and buy enough we can avoid shipping.

PM sent about the tank.

GaMtnRider, I'm not sure I want to sell that shock yet. I think I may have found a way to make it work, while also leveling the bike for my planned front end improvements. If it doesn't work out, I'll let you know.

Nice! I love the crash bars!
How much does the windshield improve your protection?
Cheers!

carb for sale

Well, I sold the Clarke tank but everything else sits in my garage taking up space. If you need anything email or PM me. Example...the carb only has six hours on it. Cost me $454. I'll part with it for $200. I'll throw in near new carb joints for nothing. If your bike is running like crap get it going again with this carb. I want to move this stuff. tell me what you need.

John

Well, I went 'n done it: sold my 95 XT350 for $1300. Ad on Craigslist this morning, sold it this afternoon. It's gone.

Now in the market for a good used something with six speed and 'lectric start. Husaberg? Sure would be nice.

If you still want a dual sport and liked the XT350, The WR250R might be worth taking a look at. I still have my XT350, but it just sits now that I have the 250R.

If you are looking for more power, or nearly all off-road, Have fun choosing between Husaberg,KTM,and Husky. Hard (but fun) choice to make.

I'm looking at all three,,, poSTed at ST-Owners my next dual sport will be my world bike so a 650 or so would be high on the list. Still holding out for light weight but the Terra looks awful good. Sure wish Honda would put the new 450 Rally bike on the showroom.

I owned that XT for about 10 years and only put 9000 miles on. Do I really need a dirt bike? Hell yes!

Sounds like what you really need is a big "World Bike" and a cheap and light 2-smoker.

Howdy all! I'm the dude that bought goerge's xt. I've been looking for a mid sized ds for a while now, something to keep my nighthawk and my tw company and I think this bike will fit the bill. I'm going to study up on this thread and learn some more about the bike before I do anything major to it. George cut me a good deal on this bike, actually he cut several hundred dollars off his price because I wasn't getting a really warm and fuzzy feeling about the top end noise (a noise that seems pretty common on these bikes from what I've been reading) so I'm going to check the valves and the cam chain tensioner and if they are ok I'm gonna change the oil and ride the wheels off it.
