XT600 Tenere 3rd Gear problem
After spending many nights reading the stories on the site and dreaming of hitting the road for some serious travel I have just bought a 1988 XT600Z Tenere 3AJ. I'm loving the bike but I'm concerned about 3rd gear!
feels rougher that the other gears and makes a bit of noise. It feels worst when under load at lower revs. I have read about the pitting that often occurs in fifth gear, so is this the most likely problem with my 3rd gear?
Is there anything I can check or other things I should look at before planning open heart surgery?
Where is the best place to source replacement gears in the UK?
What are the chances of the gearbox locking up if I continue to ride her?
