Try Motion Pro. They don't list a choke cable, but at worst, you can send them yours and they'll duplicate it for you.

Carb issue

I just finished getting a recently aquired 89' XT600 back on the road. Gas tank & carb cleaning, fluids, plug, valve adjust, etc. Anyhow it runs very well now.

I do have one issue with the carb. It has a slow drip, drip, drip gas leak - not a gusher like a bad needle valve/float situation, just a drip. Maybe 2 drips/minute.

Any ideas?

Just got my 89 xt going too

hey got an 89 here that I just got going after 13 yrs. sitting. I had to clean the float needle seat with pointed piece of dowel rod spun in a drill, if the rubber on thje needle is still in good shape that should make a new clean surface for the needle to seat into, just grind it down the same angle as the needle and spin it a few turns. I had to mess a round a bit with float settings myself, but sometimes it still sticks a bit and a little comes out the overflow when i turn the valve on. I think my gas level is running about 5 or 6 mm. and it runs pretty good.

Recieved my footpegs here in Australia from Bosley couple weeks ago and recently fitted to my ex Australian army XT. Excellent fit and a great improvement from stock. Thanks






While I was at it I ordered a Wilbers rear shock absorber and Wilbers fork springs from Kedo and fitted everything. Quite reasonably priced as we dont have to pay the VAT. 350 euro for the shocker and 80 euro for fork springs plus 80 euro for delivery to Australia.

Took it for a spin on some local tracks. Feels like a different bike. Will be able to load the bike up now with confidence. Used to be very soft and spongy and quite oftened bottomed out on potholes when loaded. Plenty of preload and rebound adjustability now. Recommended highly to any XT owner.

I'm a cheapskate and bought some TW200 foot pegs but they look to be a similar size but are made of crudely cast steel and nowhere as pretty as the ones you guys have been posting. They perform waaaaaay better than the stock pegs! I just put 50 fireroad, jeep trail and single track miles on them the other day, complete with water crossings and some asshat pulling into my lane and forcing me into a 200' skid through a grass and rock filled ditch... kept the bike upright through the whole ordeal. Stock pegs suck!

shinko 705 tire pressure on my 89 xt 600

Hello everyone, just looking to see what pressure everyone is running these tires at. I got them at the standard 22psi front and rear and they feel kind of squishy and squirrely, especially the front, thinking about taking them to 25 or more and seeing if that will stiffen them up a bit. The old trailwing I had on the front before did not feel like that.

I will have a set of carbs in the next fortnight that are coming off a perfectly running bike, I am using the motor for another project and I have no need for the carbs
