Technically I think you should be right because you were allowed to strengthen in the day by welding a gusset, just because it has a hole in it?

Think about the fact they make you take of the side stand but the bracket is still there, they don't make you cut it away?

But not my field of expertise

I usually just buy a DG pipe. around $350

As above. I am looking to buy a trail bike 500cc-650cc that has an electric start as even when young I had a devil of a time kicking my 81 XT500.

Prefer Yamaha.

Dont mind a bit of a project, probably prefer, but would like it to be complete or near as.

Many have suggest Honda NX500 also XL500

Love to be rich enough to have many toys all on full rego.

Great, thanks fellas. Doesn't have to be Yamaha, just prefer as worked on them 99% more than anything else.

As "dont" said I don't (Pardon the pun) need heaps of suspension as probably most riding will be on roads (Sealed & unsealed)

I go on a few road rides with the club on my RX1000 but I am not a road rider, never have been, & it's as heavy as all f*#k so I'm looking for something I can go bush but will sit on the speed limit, plus a little more if needed, without screaming it's head off.

So has to be 4 stroke & have an electric leg.

So I'm looking at XT600, 660, XL600 & KLR650?

Which is the lightest & by how much?

Yes, the E was essentially a D with an aluminum swing arm.

As before the barrel & head slightly different. If you need it for Pre 78 you'll need to put a D barrel on.

You could apply for an exception (As per YZ250 & 360 B's) as if you are using the D frame the centrecases offered no gain as they were identical apart from the first 3 letter prefix.

That said I doubt if you would be pulled up on it.

As above. I am looking for suggestions for a trail bike 500cc-650cc that has an electric start as even when young I had a devil of a time kicking my 81 XT500.

Prefer Yamaha.

What's peoples thoughts?

The test is only for first timers or if you let your licence lapse more than 12 months

Dont think so but I will look. Was over 4 years ago.
