My eldest grandson scored this poor XT600Z that has been sitting behind a shed in the weather for years. The engine would not turn over and the forks are bent, the plastics are all broken off after sitting in the Aussie sun, the exhaust fell off when he moved it, the electrics are cut about or missing, the seat is crumbling and a lot of bits rusty or missing. It is fitted with a motard front wheel but will be good for him when we get it back on the road. We got the engine out (he did most of the work as I am still too sore to lift anything heavy) and the head off to find it was only an exhaust valve stuck open. I showed him how to get the valves out and they all look good and will lap in ok. The bore is still standard and piston good, so a light hone and new rings will get it going again. The frame will require a full strip down and repaint and a lot of searching for new bits. He has 9 months before he gets his 'L's so he best get busy.
