    Exploded View - 77-79' Carb

    Been a while Chris. Is this a good kit for my ‘81? I know the description says it is, but those things lie a lot, lol.

    XS rebuild back on track..maybe!

    Our attention gets drawn away frequently. My bike is embarrassingly still sitting. It’s been more than 10 years. I’ve ordered some new bits and it’s getting worked on as soon as they get here. It’s time. Good luck with yours.

    Change of seat style & Bars

    Maybe message Drewpy. He lives in the UK so he knows local suppliers, plus he built a flat tracker.

    Exploded View - 77-79' Carb

    Chris, is this why they never seem to list the rebuild kit for my carb? It's always other years. They only have gaskets and float needles for 81's. I don't think the other parts will fit. I still haven't taken my carbs apart, but hopefully the jets and hard parts just need cleaning. If not...

    Replacement carburetors

    I just need to clean and rebuild. Haven't taken them apart yet, so I'm not sure what I'll need. I see so many rebuild kits look like junk though. If you know a good source, please let me know.

    Replacement carburetors

    Nobody knows anything about these? I'm surprised because not a lot of places have parts for our bikes. Usually, its members here who push the companies to make things. I might end up being the guinea pig on this one.

    Exhaust Header Nut and Shim Question

    Did you change everything all at once? Hard to narrow it down. Maybe put it back to stock and make sure it runs well, then make changes one at a time. When things get bad that’s your culprit.

    Try the petcock that Chris suggested. He knows the XS inside out.

    What did you do with your XS today?

    Not really to my bike, for my bike. I cleaned out my garage, got rid of all of my wife's things. I'm able to get to my tools again and was able to get my bike inside out of the weather. I'm now ready to tear it down for its restification. :D

    You need the 2240:60 ratio from what I understand, in order for you speed to be accurate.
