No idea. I'm using a TT350 shock with DR650 spring on my TT350.
I think the XT is a different shock length though.

Yeah from what I have seen the banshee shock it about 1" shorter than the xt. But it is much stiffer and has more adjustment so I didn't know if I could make it work.

A Banshee shock wont work. Nor will a Yamaha Blaster. Both will work on a TW200 tho, which i also own. Reason being is that they are based off a regular non-linkage swing arm. The required spring rates are much different between a non-linkage bike and a linkage bike, just sayin :)

The linkage basically multiplies the shock stiffness. So a stiff shock will be reeeeal stiff on the xt

Thank you.....that is the kind of information I was looking for. I guess I will keep looking for a cure for my bikes mushy-tushy.

What was the last picture that was posted?

Oh, that was just a 'quote' reply to your post, the one with the front of the bike. Kind of odd that it wouldnt show up...

Gotcha....oh well. So how do you like your tw200? I read through a bunch of the big thread on here. People are doing some pretty cool things with them.

I freakin love it. I only got the xts to do highway and longer trips. I have an ATV tire on the rear, a blaster(or banshee, i forget) shock that raises the rear up 6 inches, and a 5.18x18 tire up front. Its pretty mean lookin. Geared down, this thing goes thru everything. And i mean EVERYTHING. Deep mud, deep snow, sand like none other, and keeps up on the road up to 55 comfortably, 65 if i crouch down. Check out TW200forum.com. There is a ton of info on anything you can think of. Too bad the xt350 doesnt have its own forum (sorry advrider, kinda hard to sort thru stuff here)

Can anybody point me to a good source for a master cylinder rebuild kit for a '85 XT 350 ?

I need to replace all the seals and whatever in mine. Aftermarket mailorder is best.

near new carb from 2000 xt350

I'm asking $150 for a carb with six hours on it ($450 new). Hit a rock and cracked the engine case and fried the motor. I've got the rest of the bike to part out as well as a Cycle Racks rack. I'm extremely negotiable on price at this point. I want somebody to get some use from what's left of the bike. PM me if you want/need anything. I need to get this thing out of my garage.
