Shock swap!!

Hey all, well I've got a replacement rear shock lined up, good price, wondering what else needs replacing, rubber mounts? etc and does anyone know of a place I can find how to swap shocks easily. Cheers all round, life in Tropics warm and easy.

So, good price hey, do tell. It's been some time since last post.

I had D&R motorcycles at Roma do an entire rear end rebuild when I had my shock rebuilt.
Trick is that the original bearing kit is very $$$. The XT600 kit is well price but one bush is wrong length, meaning you need to order one orig bush. If you want to retain old parts, just check how much free play you have in swing arm and up and down with shock installed. It might be ok if your not expecting to much from it. I did two week rally and have much more planned for my 10ray

Laugh XT600z Tenere 34L

Well I just got me a 83' XT600z Tenere. Swapped for a KTM basket case I had in the shed. Pretty stoked. Goes well with the 96' 660 and 90 '750. It's a runner too, has a 49L engine in it. For the price I'm not too concerned but if I could get my hands on a 34L engine............well let me know. Cheers.

Seat height


I need some help please. I need from someone who owns a 1983 xt600 tenere to measure the distance between the top of the lowest part of the seat to the top of the footpeg (basically where you sit). Doesn't have to be exact but close will do.

My new rig

Hi my names Steen, I'm from the hills outer east of Melbourne. Recently bought a 96 xtz660 with 25k on the clock. Haven't been on a bike for 10 years so just getting the hang of it again. It's got a full custom exhaust but it's so damn loud it hurts my brain after a while. It came with a brand new stain tune muffler but it won't fit the custom headers. So wondering where I can get a standard set of headers or the stainless ones I seen around? Cheers!

Hi there Damo,

Just checking out some of your photos.
Interested what handle bar risers you used and what bar on your tenere. Looking at changing mine. Also did you keep the pivot bearing in the fork tree or remove that too?

I have added comments to the photos to provide more detail about the mods and what to look out for

Following is a snap shot of the key changes.
If anyone wants the info here in adv land, let me know

Photo showing offset mounting holes and ventalation hole that I cut into the guard

Photo after removal of indicator and bracket to allow full lock steering

Photo showing the new indicator mounts and extra wiring

Photo showing brake hose minor relocation

This also shows fixing the speedo cable to what use to be the indicator mount arm

And the finished product
