    XT500 No spark

    Hi, I've just picked up a 76 XT500 that I can't get a spark on it. It's got a Rex Speed Shop ignition system, with what looks like new coil, plug, ignition switch. Any ideas why I can't get a spark?

    TT600R Engine Identification and CDI Help

    Hi All, I'm currently working on a TT600R engine (number 5CH-007423) and would like to know what year its, Yamaha can't help as they require the frame number and the motor is fitted to a twin shock Maico frame. I'm also trying to track down the correct CDI for this motor has tried a PVL but this didn't seem to have the correct advance curve as the motor was running very rough under full load at the top end of it rev range. If someone could provide a phot of the correct CDI and the wires that go into it it would help greatly. Cheers

    DR125 SEY Flywheel Removal

    Hi, I'm struggling to find a tool to remove the flywheel from a DR125 SEY (2000 model year) bike. Any suggestions either on finding a tool or a way of getting the flywheel off? Cheers

    XT600 Dual Carb Tuning

    Hi All, back again and this time XT600 mounted. I've got to pull the motor apart over the winter as it seems to be burning more oil than petrol. The thing it, if I'm in there I know the cam will be on it's way out and it's going to require a re-bore. So, what are the options for a Stage 1 cam, over bore and compression hike? Finally, is there anything else I should be doing to the motor? Cheers Blues

    XR600RK Tyre Pressue (Road)

    Just wondering what the thoughts are on tyre pressures for the road, as the Honda hand book states 21psi front, 15psi rear, I'm assuming this is the off road pressures?

    xr600 fitting an oil cooler

    You could try a search http://www.thumpertalk.com/forum/search.php?searchid=12503198 Seem to remember the somewhere on the WWW there is a step by step on fitting an XR400 oil cooler to a XR600 I think I'd get an oil temp guage and check that first though to see if you need one
