Unhappy probem´s with tt 600 1995

my tt 600 it´s giving me some trouble. one raining day she start´s to lose power, getting hot and small flames into the exaust system and only takes 100 km/h. so i take her to a mecanic and the guy change allmost every thing in the engine. so far so good, next morning she makes the same thing, and now when she´s cold start´s good, when she´s hot it´s a big problem, and i got the same problem about the power. may be the alternator it´s not working.
please can you help me, i love my ride.

side stand switch


check the side stand switch, I guess it is full of water and this is what your bike causes to do funny things.

just cut the cable and connect both wires. but after this the switch does not work anymore and you can ride with your sidestand down, so be careful.

good luck

hola Pedro

hola Pedro,

sorry I did not read your message until now. Obrigado, for the invitation. At the moment I dont make any travel plans, because after a long journey it is time to work for me. But I will write down your details and maybe I will come down your way one day.

suerte con la TT

Greetings from Berne / Switzerland
