'C' refers to the California model, which has evaporation control kit, which can be ignored if you don't have it. Otherwise, the manual applies almost 100% to the 3TB model. The only differences I have found are minor changes to the wiring diagram. Components added or missing, and changes to wire colours - nothing you can't work out with a bit of head scratching. As far as I have found, there are no differences to the mechanical side.

Hope that helps.

Thinking of tidying up this thread to include only live links to FREE XT service manuals.

This thread seems pretty well used by every one of us XT nuts.

If anyone is aware of any new links, please advise accordingly and I will edit the first page to include the link(s).

Please don't bother posting links to paid sites. The information is out there for free instead and none of us wants to pay unless we can help it.

Another possibility is to scan a manual ourselves and then post it online somewhere for free. I am happy to oblige in this respect as my own website has unused space (although it's content is war memorials).

Best wishes to you all.

Triumph Bonneville 800 (2004), Yamaha XT600E (1999), Honda XBR500 (1986).
