I Asked about this bike once before. Been thinking about a trip in about one year, and im not really concerned about a bike if I have to get another. But I do have this 350xt 1986. it hasnt been going in a couple years, but did go when parked. Honestly, I would take it on a trip to africa because of its simplicity, however, because of its age and so on, I would really just want to completely rebuild the engine. However, after contacting yamaha , they advised me that after 10 years old they have little info on a bike, and that if I wanted to see if the parts for the engine were still available, i would have to go in the yamaha site, get every part number for the engine that I want, and send the list to them, and they will see what is available. She said that some of the parts may not be available anymore. Would this even be worth doing? I know I can get a new KLR 650 for just over 7 grand on the road.
