XT600e in Lima for sale

Hi,

I have a fantastically reliable 2001 Yamaha XT600e for sale. Its done just about 45,000k, fully kitted out with Hepco & Becker racks and panniers + top box, Acerbis 24l tank (range of about 500KMs), tall H&B windscreen, crash bars. Its got a new MT60 rear tyre and front is a Metzeler Sahara. Full service history, this is a super reliable air cooled single. Handled 5000m fully loaded 2 up without a cough over the Andes.

Here are some photos of the bike in action, note we no longer have the tank bag as it went with the little original 15l tank.

north of chile

hi mate, the bike was fine, in the deasert we could cruise at 110 to 125 in 5th, but some sections the cross winds got pretty feirce so the speed dropped to 50 - 60 in errr. 3 or 4th gear i think..

generally she's a goer the only time it felt weak would be at 4900m odd on bolivian llama piss, ahem, fuel. even then she was the fastest thing on the road!
