new member looking at a 1991 XT600 with some questions!
I’m a new member to the site; I’ve been looking for a 600cc+ dual sport for a while to replace my baby KLR250. I’ve owned several XT350's and a DR350s in the past. I ride a Triumph Sprint RS 955i daily but keep a dual sport in the garage for the WV back roads and fire road rides! Anyway, I just got off the phone with a guy selling a 1991 XT600, he says it has 11,000 miles and is very clean with new tires but needs the choke assembly repaired at the bar and the left rear turn signal is broke. He did mention that the previous owner had the engine rebuilt, which bothers me... He also said its kick start only, does that sound right??? He is asking $1700 for it which seems high, especially if it’s a kick only bike, I can buy used KLR650's all day long in that price range. Anyway, please give me some feedback, I looked up the NADA value and in excellent condition it’s around $1200, I know it’s probably worth more than that but I’m not sure about $1700! Did they make an XT600 in 91 that was a kick only version? Thanks a million! ~Matt
