1983 Yamaha XT600
It puts a smile on my face every time I ride it
Nothing except for normal wear and tear for its age.
Front brakes not very good.
Has speed wobble with the front mudguard on.
5 litres of fuel per 100kms; excellent fuel economy.
Good torque spread across the rev range.
Front brake fade a problem.
No stopping power in the front brakes.
Decompression cable, tappet clearances critical for easy starting.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
