The topend on those motors are angled forward about 5º more than the bikes so those boots are angled more so the carbs are flat, (level with the ground). That angle forward was the biggest hurdle I had when putting the 660 hybrid in my XT frame , the efi takes care of the tilted carb issue.

So what solution do you recommend, not going EFI?

I'll angle mill the snout on those carbs where they slip into the boots bolted to the motor to drop the rear down , you'll be fine , even if they would end up a little angled , just can't be too much. I have to mill the od anyways to fit better in the boots so I'll can just tip them a little instead of being straight . it should be the same as my bikes if your motor is sitting same as stock. As long as it's within a few degrees I don't see it being an issue , mine was about 6-8 degrees and it ran but really wasn't liking it , kept getting a bunch of fuel that would flood it out, but would run great with the front wheel 6-7 inches on blocks. It wasn't exactly jetted right either so it made things worse , I was just testing the motor for function.

My hidden agenda

Post by Yami » Thu Jun 23, 2016 4:35 pm

I have to admit I have a hidden agenda around my projects. smile:
Started out this project as a double TT600 project. Needed many parts so an
idea was to buy some cheap spare part bikes. Doing like that, the costs
was starting to get high. So I started to think of the economy as a preproject.
Could I decrease the costs by fixing/chopping and selling? Very early I included
another 2 project bikes into the economy project, 2 XT600Z from -83.
When I checked last year there was only 25 34L registered in the country and
now I got 2 of them.

When starting this eco-project I was aiming at zero costs for the purchasing of the bikes.
Seemes this soon is a reality so I am thinking of expanding the eco-project to
include spareparts I bought along the way from EBay and others. Maybe expand it
in another step to include the renovation costs. However, I have a nice grip of
all the costs today.

When I present the numbers I am doing this in Euros. The swedish currency SEK (Crown)
is rounded up to closest euro which is 1 Euro = 10 SEK for simplicity in counting.

I have bought 14 bikes for 7070 Euros in total right now.
Selling bikes and spareparts gives my total purchase cost is only 441 Euros at
the moment and counting down. I have 5 bikes left, 4 project bikes and 1 2KF to be sold
when repaired. I still miss some parts for one of the XT600Z and my customized TT600.

The negative side having an eco-project like this is there is almost nothing
going on with the 4 project bikes, except collecting parts.

Hi guys, :wave:
Been a while since last update. I´m looking into the forum now and then. Projects still in my plans but nothing to report about for now.
I can almost not walk in the workshop I have today so I took a decision earlier and is now in the process building myself a bigger workshop.
Will probably fill that up too, but there will be place to have a couple of ongoing projects. smile:
