Xt600 Air Filter

Hey all! I have a Twin Air air filter for a Yamaha XT600, it says Tenere Z 1984/1986. If this fits your bike you can have it. I ordered an air filter for my 1990 XT600 and they sent me this which won't fit mine.

The picture is exactly what it looks like. I'll ship it for free because I have no use for it and couldn't sell it on EBay. Thanks guys!

Wow that filter looks nothing like the filter they put into the XT600E! Both mine have Pippercross foam replacements. I have heard that Pipercross filters don't always fit properly but mine surely do.

Am I right in understanding the Yamaha XT600 was never imported into the USA? Pity.

I was told that the Kawasaki KLR650 and Honda XR650 became the XT600 you never got?

Kentfallen.. XT600E was sold until 1995 in the US before they changed to the 4PT!
My 1990 XT600E was imported from the US to the Azores

They changed the airbox/airfilter.

This is how a twinair looks for the more modern xt600's.
