Romain,

No problems using a 3AJ engine(better gearbox and cooling fins etc),
lf you buy a 1VJ engine, l would be interested
in buying the kick mechanism from you to fit on my 3AJ,
You should also consider a 3TB engine, l think the demolition store in Narbonne has a low kilometered one available at 500€
Just let me know if you need any advice,
where in Toulouse are you from?

Matt

Ps l have some ténéré parts for sale:
koyo steering bearings: new !
a few C3 engine bearings: new
exhaust OEM: almost new
gearbox 1VJ: good shape
and much other parts!

2nd try to answer you....
thanks for your advices.
so according to you i can only change
the engine and install a 3AJ one keeping
the 1VJ carbs and airbox?
about the 3TB i wondered if its the same
think and if the kickstarter is adaptable?
promise if i don't use tkis kick i tell you.
otherwise i live in toulouse city just near
avenue de muret and try to re-adapt myself
to climate and life in a big town (of course
tlse is a big town!!) after 2 years under the sun....

Romain,

Did you get my mail message?
http://home.main-kinzig.de/aludwig/
http://www.xt600.de/

These sites are in german, they explain how to tranplant a 3TB/3AJ engine to 1VJ frame,
trannslate with altavista to french if you don't speak german,,

l would take 3AJ or 3TB engine, along with improving the cooling/thermal characteristics of the 1VJ:
re jetting
bigger oil cooler
mud guard vent holes
3AJ airbox,,
