Description:XT600
XT600E: Equipped with rugged off-road bodywork, a highly agile chassis and an upright riding position, the Yamaha XT600E is built to survive today's urban environment! The gutsy 595 cc single-cylinder engine delivers plenty of power for zapping around town or escaping into the countryside. And with its long-travel suspension, disc brakes and dual-purpose tyres, the versatile XT600E feels as strong on the trail as it does on the street. -Yamaha

Notes: XT550 became XT600 in 1984. Avoid XT500. 1995 Last year in North America for XT600, XT600E

UMG Says: XT550 better at low revs with two choke carb, four valve head and engine balancer, but has a weak clutch. Ironically, the better XT550's very rare (the four valve head goes eventually)

UBS Says: XT500 suffers from poor carburation and chain snatch at low revs, reluctant starting, quick wear piston and magnesium crankcases that rot away. XT550 better at low revs with two-choke carb, four-valve head and engine balancer, but has a weak clutch. Ironically, the better 550 very rare (the four-valve head goes eventually), while many 500s survive. C1 £1200, C2 £600, C3 £250

IGM Says (XT350, XT550, XT600): This bike traces its roots back to the original big Japanese thumper, the XT500 of the 1970s. Although it was a very nice dual sport, it wasn't competitive with the other thumpers from Japan and was discontinued in 1995.
