1986 Yamaha XT600 for sale

I am going to have to reduce my collection. I selling my near mint 1986 XT600. It only has about 800 miles on it. The reason it has so few miles is that it had a transmission issue (second gear on the shift cam would not hold) which has been repaired. It was repaired with a new shift cam. Works great now. It's in almost perfect condition. Before posting it on eBay I thought I would give the true believers a chance at it. I am taking offers. I am located in Atlanta, GA. Let me know if you are interested. Thanks.

Asrocytoma, I have sent the following pm to Troy on your behalf, but I would guess that if if he has not seen your earlier posts, then he has not been on the forum

Minty XT600

Sorry to report that since I've become the North American distributor for Kedo Performance Parts I have decided to keep her. She makes a great show bike. I just had to build a bigger garage for her.

She sounds absolutely lovely!

I'm sure you have made a good decision to keep her. Can't be too many left in that condition. I can't speak for the USA but in the UK they are now becoming pretty rare things. Plenty of XT6 E's still out here but hardly any early 1990's "minters". The bike was so damn useful for RTW trips in the 1990's, that most were literally ridden into the ground. Most that still survive are looking their age now...

What about a pic?
