89 tt600

Recommended Posts

Hey all

As a young man in my early 40s i developed an interest in xr/tt 600s 

Have owned 5 xr600s over the years but have recently gotten hold of an 89(i think)TT600..

Its very Original which i love but needs some tlc here and there.

So here we go

 

The old oil level question.

 

Do i check the oil tank dipstick hot or cold?Dipstick screwed in or out?Thanks.

 

Its quite smoky on startup but settles down to almost nothing when warm,So im starting with oil level first.

 

However with some rattles coming from high up im guessing a worn top end,valves or stem guides.

 

Will post pics soon but can tell you its the white frame model,red seat,white plastics with red edging on guards.

 

I love riding this thing,i race a 13 ktm 450 xcf,but for fun factor wheelies and skids this thing puts a smile on the dial!

 

Many thanks in advance

 

Wayne

Hey Wayne, I'd like to see some pics..I haven't seen one of those old girls for years..

Dry sump deal = go for a short ride 10 to 15 minutes , then check it with dipstick unscrewed..Mid ride or when returning from a ride is the way to get the most accurate readings..

From memory I think it would hold about 2.2 litres....

Cheers
