    XT350 tank with motorcycle attached

    We seem to have threads here about looting XT350 tanks to put on our TWs, but anyone have experience with the actual XT350? Nice 2000 one locally for $1,800 and I am curious if it would make a worthwhile stablemate.

    All I know is the tank is to big but if you buy it we might be able to make a deal. Just trying to help you out Fred.

    I was reading the 2000s, at least in the UK, were de-tuned to 18 hp. 6 speeds and 90 mph but geared too tall with too weak suspension for serious trail work...difficult kick-start only. hmmm, some advice is to get a DR instead.

    I owned a 97.
    Heavy on the trails, I geared it down fo trail riding and changed the front sprocket for when doing more road riding.
    Ok fire road, FSR bike.
    Lots of vibration on the road. Coming down the Hope Slide Hwy 3 Do 70 mph The front fender caught a wind gust and I was starting to Wheelie ( almost a diaper moment)
    I stuffed the piston on SFU hill and need to have it rebored and over size piston and rings. ( I was young and rode my bikes hard)
    Overal good Yamaha quality bike. A WR250r is a way more versatile bike.

    Fred it was easy to Start, A XR 400 is a pain too start.

    I also bent the front forks hitting a boulder at 40 mph. Bike faired better than I did.

    Thanks Eckhart.
    Was sort of hoping to find the excitement of an KTM EXC with the reliability of a low stressed thumper, something like a DRZ.
    Indeed once I helped ride a stranger's XR400 out of a difficult trail that had the elderly gentleman owner too intimidated to continue. The XR seemed hard to start on a sidehill and geared too high for the technical nature of that cliff lined trail.It was a handful. After I hiked back up to retrieve my bike the TW seemed calm and comfortable by comparison.

    Normally I'd say that was a good bike and I would ride one happily, but this one? Hmmmm Look at the scraped up side cover and the pool of something under the bike. The scratches on the bike makes it look like it slid down a hill without its rider. I bet there is more work needed on this one than you know to make it a good dependable bike. I'm pretty fussy about my "keepers", I would have walked right away from this one. I think "if" you are wanting one of these bikes, I'd look for another one.

    My XT350 was reliable, fun to ride and cheap. Suspension was weak, swingarm limited tire size and it was not light. Started super easy, every time. Mine was the YDIS twin carb model. It made a little more top and bottom end with the progressive throttle linkage and smaller throtle bodies. I would have another for a trail cruiser if the right one came along. Watch for base gaskets and carb boots.

    They are tempting aren't they? A few have mentioned a lot about the XT I would now not consider it, that and no magic E button is a no go nowdays.
