moppedcrak: TT 500 real nice bike

ORTHMANCUSTOMS: LOL! Awsome bro. Take care and keep the rubber side down.

Jamie King: Thanks for the tip on starting. I have had mine for a few years and I always gave it a few twists of the throttle before kicking... yup it wouldn't start... This week I kicked it on three different days - no gas but yes choke and it started in 4 kicks each time. Thanks for the insight... My old CB750 needs the fuel cranked or it won't start... Old bikes are like women - every one of them is different. But we still wan to ride em!

ORTHMANCUSTOMS: Thanks for sharing! I love hearing stories about the old Thumpers.

Jeff H: I had 2. To start. Take it to compression pull the decomp lever, just nudge it through then kick it with no or only a minute amount of throttle. When new I used choke when it was cold. After you drop it or just flood it, pull the decomp lever and kick it through half a dozen or so strokes at full throttle. It may backfire whilst doing this , then start it as recommended. Wish I still had mine. A friend put a tt500 motor into a yz250 frame. Tricked up the engine 560cc kit. It went and handled.

Jack Lastname: Still have it? Had 2 of them, And a '77 XT. What a GREAT m/c. loved mine! Counter sprocket cover missing. For Sale?

ORTHMANCUSTOMS: What an awsome memory! Thanks for sharing it.

Paul Davidson: In 1997 sold my Dads for 800.00 I Rode this when I was 10 yo by stepping from the car bumper it was a fun and very powerful Ride

ORTHMANCUSTOMS: Those are Dunlap Enduro's. They are crap on the street but wicked it the woods. Thanks.

casper crump: What kind of tires are they? I have an XT 500 81`. Best bike i ever had. Thanx for sheering:-) Casper

HOYOSM: super machine

Peter Marshall: Thanks for that... great vid. Bought a TT today, have been swearing and sweating... for the last 20 mins. to much gas is the prob.

whipzter2: amen, welcome 2 my world, I was 18,, miss my baby :)

whipzter2: TY mine went in the gulf after a tornado , south Texas, MISS my baby!!

papabru80: gotta love the TT's! my dad had one a few years back. we just bought a 78' XT500 this week actually. it deff, the widowmaker of 4 strokes. love the supertrap exhaust on it too! have u heard of the white bros swing arm? it has one on it and i think its pretty rare from what iv found online?

TerryToon17: When I went looking for a used Motorcycle in 1982, my first choice was a XL500, but all I could find was the 1980 XT500. Even back then it was outdated, with the old style shockers and alloy tank compared to the Hondas mono shock and plastic tank. But FF 32 years and my XT500 is still going strong, original bore, (never seen inside it). But the Hondas of the day had problems and are an even rarer sight on the road, than my "old fashioned" XT500. (I own 2 hondas by the way XR50 and 100)

TerryToon17: Hi, 1980 XT500 owner here (owned since 1982). I had a look at a few Vidz on the starting procedure, and yours is one of the better ones. EG: Do not twist the throttle when starting, get it up on compression, then let the kick lever return to the top and kick it, like it stole your wallet. (they are rather cantankerous beasts). Mine will start pretty much first kick if you ride every 2 to 4 weeks. But leave it longer, and I will raise a sweat before it starts.

ORTHMANCUSTOMS: These old bike mean business for sure. Not my normal attire for firing my bikes lol. My dad laughed too.

brrrdrrrs: We always replaced the exhaust systems with Supertrap exhausts. BTW, my Dad would yell at you for wearing shorts and tennis shoes on your TT! :)

brrrdrrrs: Beautiful bike, man. My Dad had the orange one, and I had a yellow one and a black one. (Different years, all great bikes.) Set Ol' Yellow up for the dirt track/ice. Miss those old bikes...low end like tractors!

Lymetra Dorrough: RAMAFOOL do you uploaded that video
kingstumble: These are still outrageous prices for what is no more than an average copy of the original hand made models.
If you want that look you might as well buy an Alden for about £500.
