XT parts
on: September 16, 2020, 13:01

Hi, everyone…I have owned an XT500 since 2007….not been running since 2009. High time, to fix this situation. I am aware, that at best, my bike is a hybrid…for instance it has Renthal bars and forks with a disc brake. So, I am not going for original, I just want to get her running.

Big trouble is, I am in no sense a mechanic. Willing to learn, though…as I have it registered as April 1980 and she has a single exhaust port…do I have an XT? Or probably a TT or even an SR.

Spark plug, that I took out is NGK BP5ES , ages ago I bought an NGK BPR5ES..is this a direct replacement?

On another site, it recommends BP7ES…to say the least, I am confused.

Again, another simple question…oil?…is 10/40 a decent choice? Should it be semi synthetic?

Hope that someone out there, is willing to entertain, my novice questions. Regards.

Hi Bob, do you have a ‘go to’ supplier for parts?

I am currently looking for a coil (not getting a spark ⚡️) ..looking for Nippondenso AC 1U 029700
