1986 Yamaha XT600

Summary:

King of reliability

Faults:

Absolutely nothing has gone wrong with my XT600. All I do is routine maintenance - such as change oil, replace tires, sprockets, and chain.

General Comments:

I would recommend the XT600 to anyone. Reliable motor, excellent mileage, great handling/comfortable.

Probably the best characteristic of the bike is the amount of torque it produces. (On a flat road it will out accelerate many motorcross 450cc bikes)

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes

1984 Yamaha XT600

Summary:

It's a road warrior bike

Faults:

Stolen many years back - ran hard by thieves. Got it back - never started easily again. Hard starter now - used to start 2-3 kicks in the middle of winter. No other problems.

General Comments:

Otherwise great bike - tough as nails - lots of balls.

Fun to ride, but the seating position is not optimal for a tall guy.
