What to Expect

Trail bike that’s popular on the road and for around the world treks. XT600E’s tougher than earlier versions, runs to as much as 50,000 miles before the clutch, piston and valves give trouble. Much of the early stuff has degenerated into rat status, try to avoid. Do a compression test to check the piston as engines will still run when in a dire state.
