With its low price, air-cooled, four-stroke motor and simple steel chassis the Yamaha TT600R represents the utilitarian side of modern biking. It does have some off-road pretensions, but it’s most at home pressed into the role of tough urban commuter. On the flip side, the Yamaha TT600R turns motorways into instruments of torture.

The Yamaha TT600R's off-road handling is fine, providing you stick to light trails and muddy tracks. Anything else it feels cumbersome and it’s a swine to pick up time after time. The suspension is very simple and lacking in adjustment, but the Yamaha TT600R is a cheap enduro clone, if you want sophistication buy a KTM. The brakes work fine off-road, but lack power on it. It’s vibey enough to shake bolts loose.

The Yamaha TT600R's air-cooled, SOHC, four-stroke motor is simple, unstressed and reliable, with whopping 6000-mile service intervals. It makes short work of commuting hops across town and chugs easily across dirt, with dollops of torque. The Yamaha TT600R makes a decent 37 back wheel bhp and once fitted with 17-inch wheels makes a better streetmoto than Yamaha’s own XT660X, thanks to better fuelling.

Some riders complain that the Yamaha TT600R's front wheel isn’t central in the forks, with a 6-7mm offset to the left hand side. Check yours are true by asking a friend to hold the bike upright with the bars straight and peer along the line of the Yamaha TT600R. Shimming the wheel and caliper sorts it.

The soft-roading range is vast and cheap these days; with BMW’s F650GS probably the pick of the bunch for price, spares availability and user pleasure. The Yamaha TT600R is good enough, but used values are poor compared to the Beemer. Find a Yamaha TT600R for sale

The Yamaha TT600R is very basic and very simple, though you do get an electric start. The Yamaha TT600R's bars are made of monkey metal and bend in a strong breeze. There are heaps of aftermarket parts, including fruitier exhausts and more robust handguards. The stock Yamaha TT600R tyres are simply rubbish off-road.

Decent bike does what you would expect it to. Probably too heavy for true off road but I didn't buy it for that. Commutes well and is fine for 40 mile trips and very good over in the increasingly poor country roads we all have to ride on. Iv'e had +20 different bikes over +30 years and this is an enjoyable good looking bike that you would be happy to own and ride, probably best as a second bike, I like the fact that I don't mind getting this one dirty and then just giving it a wipe over.
Good town bike and reasonably comfy. Iv'e had many bikes and enjoy riding it. I bought it to ride through the cold weather and I'm happy with it.
Runs fine for a single and has a bit more oomph that most reviews say, if you want it to get a shift on let it rev quite high before a gear change. Mine will max at about 150 kph on the speedo which is probably about a true 90. Iv'e had a few different singles and only my Aprilia Pegaso Strada with the XTZ660 engine pulled better and was faster.
Mine is one of those bikes that like to be run every week else it's a bit slower to start, I changed the battery just to be safe and always have it on a trickle charge. No other issues so far.
Service parts are quite cheap, air filter a bit pricey but the sponge one can easily be cleaned and used a few times. MPG must be +60 however there is only a small fuel tank so full to reserve is about 120-130km on the trip.
You don't get much but it isn't that sort of bike so nothing to worry about.
Buying experience: Bought privately with 44km but has a good service record.

The TTR is a lovely bike it has the charm of a big single, its tough, pretty and reasonably comfortable. Best ridden sedately otherwise a bit vibey. This bike has a good balance of qualities. I really like it.
Brakes aren't great on mine despite being Grimeca. Ride quality is OK if you drop the frame on the forks a centimetre or so, this transforms the handling on the road. Bikes assembled in Italy so Italian forks wheels and brakes...nice. I run it on Pirelli Scorpion tyres which are fine for the road and the odd fire trail.

Starts well as long as you keep an eye on the battery charge.
Low running costs, slow depreciation, this is a tough bike.
Basic, comical horn, weedy lights so best not ridden on the motorway on a rainy night.

If you are contemplating buying one of these bikes I would suggest you give it a chance. I own a 2005 one and have commuted to work for 15 + years on everything from an MZ 150 to an XJR1300 with a couple of token Ninjas on the way. This fits the bill better than any of the above. I only travel 5 miles each way with 50mph being the upper limit of the roads I use although like most I probably do 70! It starts early morning with manoeuvring out of the garage, its light has a good steering lock and starts first time with the electric start. Its torquey, plenty quick enough, agile looks the bollox and I love it. Too many people slag it off as it is no WR450 or CRF but how many people would want to commute on those? If you realistically spend more time on the road or rough tracks than serious enduros but like the off-road style you will not find better value for money grin factor or contentment. 83mph is not true it will happily accelerate to 85 with little effort and sit there. I love it and will not sell, at under £2000 for a 2005 bike in mint condition you will not improve on this.

Throughout the off road world Yamaha's rugged TT models are regarded by dirt riders with affection and respect, and over the years the TT has established a reputation as being one of the most pure off road bikes available today. In the early 1990's Yamaha Motor Co., Ltd chose Italian Yamaha distributor Belgarda to develop and produce the legendary TT600, and this model has proved to be one of the most popular large capacity bikes in the category. Now, for the 1998 season, Belgarda announce the arrival of the new generation TT600R, a machine which has been manufactured to a higher 'pure dirt' specification, while still retaining the rugged simplicity that has made the model such a success.
The TT Story:
The original TT500 was created by Yamaha Motor Co. Ltd., in Japan in 1981, and was specifically designed for the Desert Race market in the USA. Essentially a heavily modified and stripped down XT500, the TT500 became a firm favourite with American riders who appreciated its gutsy performance, superb reliability and rugged character. Across the Atlantic in Europe the popularity of on/off road machines was growing and there was a booming market for big single dual purpose motorcycles. High profile desert race events greatly enhanced the image of the large capacity 4-stroke dirt bike in the off road world, while urban riders found the upright seating position and high-torque engine of the TT600 ideal for use in busy city streets - and the ultimate play bike for weekends. Between 1983 and 1992 the popular TT600 was updated with a number of important features such as the addition of a front disc brake in '85 and many other detail changes that enhanced the bike's overall performance. More than any other machine the TT600 captured the spirit of adventure that prevailed in the 1980's. At this time the Paris-Dakar rally had grown from a relatively small event into one of the most important occasions in the off road calendar, and every January millions of people all over Europe followed the progress of competitors like Franco Picco, Serge Bacou, Jean Claude Olivier, Andrea Marinoni and Giampiero Findanno. Riding their single cylinder TT600-based desert race bikes, these riders conquered the most hostile terrain and climate known to man, and proved beyond doubt that the Yamaha TT could handle anything. Against this background the TT600 became the favourite choice with riders planning the trip of a lifetime to distant lands. Tough, simple and reliable, the TT600 allowed thousands of people to live their dreams and see the world from a new perspective. Launched in the early 1990's, the TT600S was designed to satisfy the growing demand for a new breed of more versatile bikes designed for on and off road use. This was followed by the TT600E in 1994 which differed only in its electric starter and lowered suspension - features which were to increase the bike's popularity with riders looking for an even simpler machine for on-road riding. Now, for 1998, Yamaha revert to the original, pure and undiluted off-road spirit with the new TT600R.
Market research carried out among typical TT customer profile groups highlighted a demand for a simple, functional and reliable off-road machine offering good value for money. Such a machine would need to be both specialised and versatile at the same time, and would have to be able to cope with a wide range of conditions from off-road riding through to Sunday outings as well as extreme adventure touring and even full-on desert rallies. So in order to satisfy this demand Belgarda's engineering staff set out to develop a hardcore off-road version of the TT600 which would be aimed at pure dirt use.
In technical terms the TT600R is a completely redesigned machine which has very little in common with previous models. Engine sees major changes and improvements aimed at boosting overall torque and enhancing peak power in the high rpm range. Chassis is virtually all-new, and features revised frame geometry for superior off-road handling, as well as adjustable racing-specification front and rear suspension systems that allow riders to tune the bike to suit their own requirements.
Heart of the TT600R:
Is a proven 600cc 4-stroke air-cooled 4-valve engine with bore & stroke dimensions of 95mm x 84mm. Although externally similar to previous TT's, the new R model engine features totally redesigned internal components aimed at achieving higher levels of torque together with uprated horsepower at higher rpm. Magneto flywheel diameter is reduced from 146mm to 130mm to give a significant weight saving of 600g - a move which greatly enhances throttle response at all speeds. In addition, this smaller flywheel has enabled our engineers to reduce engine width by a full 30mm, a feature which is sure to be appreciated by any rider who has ever been stuck in a deep rut before! For improved power output the YDIS carburettor and manifold bore is increased from 26mm to 30mm, and air cleaner capacity is increased by over 100% from 3.5 liters to a massive 8 liters . Complementing the new intake design is an all-new oval shaped Termignoni aluminium silencer, as well as a new digital ignition system for excellent throttle response and even crisper acceleration. Finally, first gear ratio is raised from 31/12 (2.583) to 30/13 (2.308) to make it closer to second gear for improved off road performance, and the gearchange head is manufactured from aluminium. The result of these major improvements is an additional 5 horsepower as well as a boost in torque from [email protected],000rpm to [email protected],000rpm, a truly dramatic transformation. To match this significant increase in power output the new TT600R is equipped with a large capacity 2.6 litre oil tank which ensures consistent engine temperatures for efficient performance. Manufactured from aluminium, this new tank is located at the machine's centre of gravity to help enhance handling characteristics. Manufactured by Yamaha Motor Co. Ltd. in Japan, this new TT600R engine offers even higher-performance while retaining the superb reliability and simple design that has made the TT name a legend in the off-road world.
Chassis has been completely uprated and features a new layout frame and competition-quality front and rear suspension systems. Much lighter than any previous TT model, this sophisticated new chassis delivers superb off road handling performance and improved comfort which are sure to make the new TT600R one of the leading large capacity pure-dirt bikes available. Frame Manufactured from high tensile steel tubing, the TT600R's redesigned frame follows the proven semi-double cradle design used on all of our off road machinery. Most significant change to the latest frame is the use of a 20mm shorter top tube as well as a much steeper caster angle, down from 28 degrees to 26.30 degrees. Another extremely important modification is that the engine is now tilted back by 4 degrees in order to achieve the optimal front/rear weight distribution. The result is a much more agile handling chassis which turns quicker - and with its lighter front end and increased power output the TT600R can handle off road obstacles much more efficiently.
The quality of any off road machine's suspension is an accurate guide to the bike's potential in the dirt, and one look at the TT600R's racing quality systems underline this new machine's impressive overall specification. Running with massive flex-resistant 46mm tubes, the conventional Paioli forks offer both rebound and compression damping adjustment for accurate chassis set up. Giving 280mm travel, this competition-standard front end delivers precision steering together with excellent stability on the roughest terrain - and for easier steering the TT600R is equipped with a new style upper triple clamp fitted with new light alloy alumite handlebars. The completely redesigned Monocross rear end runs with a new shorter stroke Öhlins shock absorber which is operated by an aluminium Deltabox swinging arm. 20mm longer than last year's structure, this high rigidity design works a YZ motocrosser-based linkage and offers an impressive 280mm rear wheel travel, a full 40mm more than before. Built to high quality motocross specifications, these new front and rear suspension systems transform the latest TT600R into a sharp handling pure-dirt machine that can handle the most challenging off road terrain.
To underline the new TT600R's totally uprated engine and chassis specification Belgarda have created all-new lightweight bodywork that combines rugged good looks with many easy-maintenance features. YZ-style front fender underlines the bike's competition heritage, while the revolutionary new one piece rear fender/sidepanel assembly makes for much easier routine inspection and maintenance - and to match this novel bodywork the TT is fitted with a special two-tone seat. Slimline 10 litre fuel tank gives a useful range and allows easy body weight shifting, while the tough fork tube guards and compact headlamp assembly keep overall weight to a minimum. Special low maintenance features include a quickly detachable side opening air cleaner for easy filter changes, and a new inspection window on the oil tank for at-a-glance checking. Standard features include grease nipples on the swinging arm pivot for prolonged bearing life, and a tough new YZ-type chain guide built to withstand harsh off road use. Larger YZ-style footrests are fitted with easy-to-remove rubber grips, while aluminium passenger footrest keep weight low. Other well designed components include lightweight instrumentation featuring a speedometer, tachometer and indicator lights, 12V55W headlamp, tough aluminium sumpguard, adjustable front brake lever and frame-mounted ignition switch. From the specially designed one piece rear fender/sidepanel assembly through to the quickly detachable air filter, every feature on the latest TT600R is designed to enhance this bike's off road performance and ease of maintenance - while still retaining the essential simplicity and reliability that TT riders value so much.
Important change for the new TT600R is the use of durable Tagasako rims which are built to withstand the most severe off road terrain, and for enhanced handling the rear tyre size is now 130/80-18 compared to the 140/80-18 used on previous models. Front tyre remains 90/90-21. Front 267mm diameter disc is slowed by a high efficiency Brembo 2 piston caliper, while the rear end features a progressive 220mm disc and opposed piston Brembo caliper. Dimensions Featuring many changes to its frame and suspension systems, the new bike runs a 10mm shorter wheelbase (1480mm) and 10mm increased Ground Clearance while its 845mm width and 1230mm height remain the same. Considerable effort has been made in keeping the machine's weight as low as possible, and the new TT600R is a full 4kg lighter than its predecessor at only 131kg. This in itself is an impressive weight saving, but in addition to the overall weight reduction our engineers have also been successful in concentrating as much mass as possible around the centre of gravity. The result is a machine which is both lighter and much more agile, allowing the TT600R rider to enjoy the uprated engine and suspension to its full potential.
Few other motorcycles attract the same level of rider loyalty as Yamaha's TT models. Over two decades the TT has made its name firstly as a winning desert racer and more recently as a versatile all-rounder. Completely redesigned for 1998, the all-new TT600R is lighter, more powerful and built to a higher pure-dirt specification than ever before. Yet at the same time as being one of today's most desirable and sophisticated off-road big singles, the new generation TT600R retains the rugged, reliable and simple character that has made the legendary TT name so successful. Blending Yamaha reliability with Italian brand flair, the new TT600R is sure to appeal to the many riders who are looking for a machine that can handle just about any kind of off-road situation, from a Sunday morning trail ride through to competing in an African Rally.
The TT600 is a stripped-down, straightforward, single-cylinder, four-stroke enduro bike released by Yamaha in 1998.
The TT600 won over critics with its performance in several off-road riding competitions. While it’s no longer in Yamaha’s current lineup, used versions are cheap and offer great value.
Part of the praise for these bikes is owed to their simplicity; these bikes were simple and easy to work on, and there are owners out there who’ve worked on their’s plenty.
We’ve come to shine a light on some of the more challenging garage stories we’ve picked up about the Yamaha TT600 series.
Let’s hit it!
1. Faulty CDI Problem
First things first. The TT600 is a refresh on a series of enduro bikes Yamaha produced in the ’80s called the XT series.
The TT600 is often confused with the XT600, so we’d thought we’d take this opportunity to clear the air on a confusion we’ve seen pop up on various forums.
The Faulty CDI bo problem was an issue with the TT600’s predecessor, not an issue with the XT600.
The CDI box controls a motorcycle’s ignition system and allows it to start properly. “CDI box” is short for the Capacitor Discharge Ignition box, although it is also called thyristor ignition box.
The CDI uses voltage from the motorcycle battery to start the ignition and combustion processes. When you press the starter, voltage passes through the CDI box and fires up the spark plug.
Yamaha XT600 bikes had troubles with the CDI system, particularly those released between 1982 and 1996. They made adjustments before launching the TT600, and the results have proven successful,
If the CDI box fails to work, it’s likely the bike won’t run at all.
Here are some of the problems owners have reported:
- The bike is difficult to start.
- The bike starts when cold but cannot restart when the engine is warm.
- Exhaust pipes get extremely hot.
- The bike runs well at the bottom end but does not rev out.
- Engine misfires (and stalls on occasions)
- Multiple ignition problem
From reports, the CDI problem on the TT600 bikes is due to a design defect.
The TT600 uses a single-sided circuit board and not the through-hole plating. The latter method efficiently secures components to the circuit board, unlike the former.
The CDI unit has a resin, which often heats up and expands. Should this happen, the resin will pull on components, breaking the solder tabs. It can also pull on the legs of the components, causing their pads and leads to touching. If this goes on for long, the CDI unit will eventually fail.
Another likely cause for the failure of the CDI box is operation hazards. While you ride, your bike’s CDI box is exposed to high levels of vibration and heat. Over time, components can wear out and cause the CDI system to fail.
If you detect CDI box failure on your bike, be prepared to part with some cash. Because the CDI box is designed to be maintenance-free, you cannot try fixing the malfunctioning CDI component. Rather, you will have to replace the entire box.
We will advise that you should confirm if replacing the CDI will fix the problems described earlier.
A bad stator, regulator/rectifier, battery, or loose wiring may be responsible. We advise that you err on the side of caution and have a technician look over your bike.
2. Swingarm May Crack
The swingarm is a major part of the rear suspension on motorcycles. It helps hold the rear axle firmly and allows the suspension to soak up bumps in the road.
Also, it affects the bike’s center of gravity, which influences handling and rider balance.
If the swingarm is deformed (cracked or bent), handling and balance will be affected severely. One such swingarm-related problem is a “speed wobble.”
Moreover, the bike may jerk violently when it goes over bumps in the road. This will cause rider discomfort and makes for less-than-ideal riding experiences.
We’ve encountered a few cracked swingarms on TT 600s, but that’s not uncommon for an enduro bike. These are trail bikes, and the suspension system is designed for such riding; they’re not crash-proof. Jumping rocks and hitting hard ground with enough force can put in a crack in the swingarm of even the toughest adventure bikes.
Subject to the deformity’s severity, you can either weld the swingarm or get a new one.
It is advisable to have a technician inspect the swingarm before you decide, as welding a swingarm that’s past the point of repair is not only dangerous but could cause the bike more damage down the road.
3. Bike Doesn’t Start Properly
Because these bikes are old, they often have issues starting in cold weather. Like its predecessor, the TT600 models used carburetion, and carburetted bikes are notorious for starting in frosty weather.
Modern bikes use fuel injection. Like the name implies, fuel injection spits fuel directly into the combustion chamber, making ignition more reliable in cold or wet weather.
If your Yamaha TT600 is having issues starting on wintry mornings, don’t fret, as this behavior is normal.
One pro tip on starting a carbureted bike in the cold is to pull the choke. Let the bike warm up by idling it for at least 5 minutes with the choke pulled out, push your choke in before you take off, and let it rip!
Here are some ways you can prevent cold start problems on your TT600:
- Store it in a climate-controlled garage: This will keep it warm and allow it to start easily next time.
- Use dry gas: Riders can add dry gas to the tank to prevent fuel lines from freezing. Sometimes, frozen fuel lines may be responsible for cold start problems. If the fuel lines are frozen, they won’t be able to supply fuel to the motorcycle’s engine, which will make it impossible to start the bike. Note: This is for running a bike in temperatures below freezing.
4. Bike Smokes On Startup
Another problem of the TT600 is what owners describe as an “engine smoke” problem. Some TT600 owners say smoke pours out when they try to start their bikes. This is another section we can attribute to wear and tear on an old bike.
According to TT600 owners, the smoke is usually of a blue-white color and is accompanied by a smell of burning oil. The smoke usually clears out some minutes after startup, particularly when the bike reaches cruising speed.
Most diagnoses conducted by owners traced the problem to failed valve stem seals. These seals prevent oil in the valve cover from entering the engine’s combustion chamber.
Although they are made to last, these valves may wear out, crack, or break over time. If this happens, they will lose their ability to direct oil flow. Afterward, the oil will flow from the cylinder head to the combustion chamber.

When you ignite the motorcycle, fuel, air, and oil will mix. This causes the burning oil smell and the smoke that pours out from the exhaust pipe at startup.
This problem isn’t necessarily severe as the smoke disappears once you start riding, but it’s only a matter of time before broken seals get worse and affect the bike’s performance. To keep your bike’s life long, to keep the smell of smoke off your clothes, it is advisable to get new valve stem seals.
5. Engine Backfires Or Misfires While Riding
A misfire and backfire are different symptoms of a similar issue; both are consequences of an imbalance in the air-to-fuel ratio.
A misfire happens when the engine runs lean (too much air), while a backfire happens when the engine is running rich (too much fuel).
With a misfire, the engine makes a popping/banging sound followed by a loss of power.
A backfire, on the other hand, is a popping sound from the motorcycle’s exhaust. Like the misfire, this is often followed by a decrease in power.
Securing the proper air: fuel ratio takes regular maintenance and routine service; as on any older bike, misfiring and backfiring are quite common on TT600 models that haven’t been serviced in a while.
Here are some causes of engine misfires and backfires on the TT600 models:
- Dirty spark plugs
- Clogged fuel lines
- Clogged air filters
- Bad fuel pumps
6. Multiple Battery Problems
Some TT600 owners have complained about the performance of the batteries on their bikes.
The reports seem the battery often fails to charge or cannot hold a charge (and drains rapidly). A particular rider complained that his bike died after some miles, even though he’d charged it before.
In worse cases, the bike doesn’t start at all.
Potential causes range from a faulty stator to a failed regulator or starter. While you can test the electrical system to detect what’s wrong, we’ll advise you not to.
Instead, have a technician conduct a thorough examination of your bike’s electrical system and recommend a solution.

The Yamaha TT600R is an enduro motorcycle from Yamaha Motor Company closely related to the XT series of air-cooled single cylinder engines. The TT600R model was released in 1998 to 2002, where it was replaced in 2003 by the TT600RE that was available from 2003 to 2007. It is no longer offered in its present form.
The TT600R's engine was basically a XT600 3TB engine. The TT600R had a reduced engine width by 30 mm, a lightened flywheel and crankshaft, and larger diameter Teikei YDIS carburettors and intake tracts. The 8-litre airbox with quick-release foam filter was also larger than the XT. The TT600R accelerated from 0–100 in 5,5 seconds and had a top speed of 155 km/h. The acceleration was almost a full second faster than the XT600, which was due to the lower weight and lower gearing.
The TT600R model was kick-start only and was further equipped with fully adjustable 46 mm Paioli conventional front forks and a Öhlins rear shock. It also came standard with Takasago aluminium alloy rims, Brembo disc brakes with steel-braided brake lines, Deltabox aluminium swingarm, Tomaselli handlebar and Domino clutch/brake mounts.
In 2003 the TT600RE model was launched with non-adjustable Yamaha suspension with shorter travel, and an electric starter instead of the TT600R kick-start only. The rims were changed from Takasago to San Remo.
The WR400F model effectively took the role of the TT600R as the serious Yamaha enduro offering.
The XT series models continued with uprated water-cooled engines to address the dual sport sector and increasingly popular motard-style street motorcycles.
