These pages are dedicated to the Yamaha SRX600. They have  been constructed as an aid to owners of European Specification  SRX600's (1XL), who do not have access to the genuine Yamaha workshop manual. I have carried out a limited number of checks but I cannot guarantee that the information contained within these pages is 100% accurate.

You must therefore use the information on from this site at your own risk.

This involved a lot of preparation work but  I am really chuffed with the finished article. Digger Seats in Newport did the cover.

Parts now off for powder coat in Bristol.

1st Dry Assembly
Reasonable progress. There are a few more jobs to do
  • Modify the kickstart stop to ensure the kickstart doesn't take out the brake lever.
  • Extend the gear linkage
  • Extend the Brake linkage.
  • Find a cool place to mount the rectifier.
I am not 100% convinced by the silencer location. The panniers are partly to blame for this, once I have finished with the panniers are removed I may try to move them higher.
I am quite pleased with the fairing so it will be staying for now.
Next job is to strip it down and get the bits to the powder coaters.
