Hey guys and gals,

Im curious if anyone has a decent decal source. I dont know if my searching just sucks or whatnot, but I would like to get the tank decals for my xt600, and cant seem to come across any. If anyone knows a decent source for a decent price please let me know!

This project might have been done to a newer European version TT600 (those had electric start from the factory).

The US-TT600 and US-XT600 frame are similar, yet the TT600 frame is lighter as it uses thinner tubing under the seat.

Your chain guard looks good. You might think about using some coating to dampen the vibration. Raw aluminum may vibrate and crack without something to dampen it. In the USA we have a product called truck bed coating. It is sprayed on the inside of a pickup truck bed to protect it from scratches and dings. Might work on the chain guard. It is a rough surface so maybe could be sprayed on the inside to dampen it. Just a thought.
Yes send to my email too (HQ-jpeg) - looking forward
Thank you

Thanks for information I think powder coating will be fine.

He use a 59x TT600 frame. He had to put the battery under the right side cover. Work great!!!

A 59x tt 600 was from 85-87 My xt is an 86. You would think the basic geometry would be the same. Mtothef's xt was a 89, a black engine bike. He had the alignment issue. The plot thickens.

Then the issue with allignment is even worse, since by design the TT lacks the (wide) sprocket dampener in the rear wheel hub.

I have 2x TT600 swingarms here in the garage waiting for my TT600 swingarm conversion. I want to do this conversion while keeping my XT600 wheel. Sprocket alignment is one of the main issues, that is holding up the project.

Is the inside surface of the tt swingarm wider than the inside to inside surface of the xt swingarm?

XT swingarm measurement is much wider. Rear wheel bolt is longer too.

As far as alignment, 1986-1987 (1VJ) European Tenere swingarm and rear wheel combo could very likely fit your application, never the less, I'm not sure you would be left with any issues of your chain clearing the frame.

The clearance issue is that the drive sproket on the 90 silver motor is 1/4 inch wider than the 86 motor . I have to move the sproket in or the back sproket out without hitting the fram. Narrower is the wrong direction.

With the wheel in place the inside measurement on the 86 xt is 8 3/4 inches. the surface of the rear sprocket to the inside of the lft. side swingarm is 13/16 in.

In comparison to our 49R US-XTs, the 1VJ Tenere Sprocket is "further out", with the corresponding swingarm side being also "further out" (assymetrically). The 1VJ Tenere swingarm is made of steel and looks almost identical to our 49R swingarm.
