Starter Set

Hey guys, does anyone know where to get a starter set for my bike? I've tried everyone from Yamaha to AJ Sutton in the UK, every place says "part is obsolete" I managed to get the rubber seat out, reversed it with some success. The bike is running, (which it always was), and the plug is not cold fouling as bad but I would sure like to get the right part installed. Any ideas?

starter set tip

www.boats.net says that the same starter set is used in these bikes:

1982 XT550J CARBURETOR

1983 XT550K CARBURETOR

1984 XT600L CARBURETOR

1984 XT600LC CARBURETOR

1985 XT600N CARBURETOR

1985 XT600NC (CA ED.) CARBURETOR

1986 XT600S CARBURETOR

1986 XT600SC CARBURETOR

1987 XT600T CARBURETOR

1987 XT600TC (CA ED.) CARBURETOR

1988 XT600U CARBURETOR

1988 XT600UC (CA ED.) CARBURETOR

1989 XT600W CARBURETOR

Maybe find a good used carb and tear it apart? Just a thought...

I went to a single carb set up. You are welcome to mine. You figure out the shipping and it's yours.

Wheels are mounted, both the same size - had to make my own spokes! rear hub is the XT550's with Husqvarna rear rim, axle and altered spacers and front is 100% Husqvarna with the XT550 rear rim, plus I had to bore out the triple tree to fit the 40mm Husqvarna fork tubes.
So, are you out riding it???

It must be cold up there, a "good for you" for the true riders. I'm originally from the North East and now in Florida. Bikes are nearly year round here. However, I've become puss-a-fied with the weather here, and it is still cold for me here now - freaking 58 today! Al-stinking Gore- can kiss my Irish! Hope all goes well with the carbs, keep us up-to-date.

Took my XT out of winter storage this weekend. After six months of storage, dropped in a new battery, turned on the fuel, kicked it slowly twice, hard once and she fired right up!!!
