    Oil in frame needs a pretty wide and deep tunnel, found out myself on my XT600...

    Yamaha XT600E 'do I really need another motorcycle?' Scrambler

    So little update, paint happened and the bike has been put to the test a few times. Got about 1k km on the clock now of which most are off-road. Had a friend take a turn on the bike, was a bit more exciting as his bullit 125 ;) Oh yeah, the thing is LOUD! need to sort that out to draw a...

    Yamaha XT600E 'do I really need another motorcycle?' Scrambler

    Wiring harness done, everything seemed to work so that's a win. Did a little mockup, still undecided on what colour to paint the tank and side covers... Also thinking about ditching the guard on the headlight. Not too sure if i'm really fond of it.

    Yamaha XT600E 'do I really need another motorcycle?' Scrambler

    I'll take that as a compliment! Plates for the bike are on the way so time to make some progress... Finally started with the wiring, as nothing is in the same place as it was, some well needed re-organising is to be done. Most of the connectors up front will be relocated to underneath the tank...

    Yamaha XT600E 'do I really need another motorcycle?' Scrambler

    It's from caferacerwebshop.com, listed as 'handmade exhaust' but no stamp on the muffler or lettering on the box it came in. Looks well made, came with a mounting bracket which needed to be welded on in the desired position and RVS exhaust clamp for just under €110. Well worth the money imo...

    Yamaha XT600E 'do I really need another motorcycle?' Scrambler

    Last few week tried working on the bike after work when life let me. Starting to get there, won't be the most beautiful bike but that was never the intention, function is key here... The cheap china tank needed some love, especially after the metalwork, a thin skim of filler and a lot of...

    Another Yamaha SR250 build. Grand Rapids, MI.

    Off on a good start it seems, looks like she has all the potential to become a fun little bike. Following

    Yamaha XT600E 'do I really need another motorcycle?' Scrambler

    Yesterday build myself a frame to mount the seat to, which in turns mounts to the frame. This gives me a solid seat fixture which can easily removed. Still need to trim the back of the seat a bit to clear the fender. Fender is rubber mounted to avoid vibrations which could cause the taillight...

    Thanks, and no idea. It wasa parking lot somewhere.

    Some generic aluminium fender. Just have to think about a way of mounting a licence plate to it...

    Yamaha XT600E 'do I really need another motorcycle?' Scrambler

    Got a little more work done, bend and welded in a new frame hoop, and mocked up the fender, seat and exhaust. Still thinking about how on hell i'm going to mount the seat firm but easily removable. Some pics to give you guys an idea of what's going on. Oh and because the weather was pretty nice...

    Yamaha XT600E 'do I really need another motorcycle?' Scrambler

    As the tank didn't want to fit due to the oil in frame neck. The front of the tank tunnel was too narrow and at the back I could fit another tank in with al the leftover space. I decided to bite the bullet and make it fit like it should. Cut out the tunnel and made my own, after a lot of cutting...

    Yamaha XT600E 'do I really need another motorcycle?' Scrambler

    So got the bike running, the intake boots did the trick. Carbs don't seem to need work at all, checked the jets while they were off the bike and were clean as a whistle. I also did a little mock up of tank and seat, the problem i'm having is the tank tunnel isn't wide enough for the oil in...

    Yamaha XT600E 'do I really need another motorcycle?' Scrambler

    Stripped out the front end, cleaned up the frame in the rear and mocked up some exhaust bends. Took some measurements to make a first version of the front headlight panel, hopefully I'll get to making it later this week.

    Yamaha XT600E 'do I really need another motorcycle?' Scrambler

    So I started off by giving her a good clean. Doesn't look too bad underneath the dirt and grime... brake lever and pedal bent back into shape, flushed the brakes with new oil, few small bits sorted and checked. Hooked up a battery and after chasing a ignition issue due to a loose ground managed...

    Yamaha XT600E 'do I really need another motorcycle?' Scrambler

    So, thappened yesterday... Frame is titled, wheels looks straight, brakes seem to do something and that's about it. Mileage, history, if she's a runner,... is anyone's guess. Let's just say, if she runs with just an oil change it's a bargain, otherwise I'll kick myself for it taking up space I...

    1982 CB750F brought back from the death

    I was having troubles with excessive popping on deceleration. Ordered new cutoff valves because the ones in the carbs had creases which could possibly leak. After changing them out the problem continued to exist. Determined the problem was in the idle circuit which was running lean I tried...

    Took the girl out for a ride today and decided to snap some pics of her as she's standing now. Still a bit of carb (fine)tuning to do but she's getting there...
