    Hey folks, have an xlt 93 580, a year ago it started to run on 2 cylinders and started to analyze the sled. Cleaned carbs, changed carbs, changed coils, ext. didn't measure but two of us assumed that the crank was out of phase. so started to pull it apart, found that a lot of silicone was...
  3. 580 xlt vs 600 xlt

    Hi guys back again.I just picked up a 580 case /crank that came with clutch, mag, stator, coils. And pistons, though the mag side is burnt. Can I drop the 600 cylinders on this block?

    Hello all, Have a 93 xlt 600 Triple with the monoblock engine and need a head gasket. Before I go tracking one down, was there a non-monoblock engine for this model year? The gasket kits I've seen look different from kit to kit and just say they are designed for the 1993-1994 xlt sp. Could...
  8. Spark plug size.

    I have a 1997 xlt 600 limited. I think I have the wrong spark plug size. I am using br9es but I fouled different plug each time I ride. Only reason I am using that size is bc that's what was in it. Carbs are all the same I know it's not the carb setting. I found on ngk web site that br8es is...

Usually it always works, but this year for whatever reason, it just burns...
