    electrical upgrade

    I did that identical swap when I built my tracker 8 years fit nicely, and has been bullet-proof since then. Nice job done on yours, very neat and tidy.

    What did you do with your XS today?

    I'm confused...are you slipping the bearings over the bar? If so, put the bar into the freezer to contract it. If the bearings go inside the bar, freeze the bearings.

    Put your opinion on the oil I'm using

    Stick with the Shell oil, but use Rotella-T 10-40 (or 15-40), instead. It's a diesel oil, and has the zinc and other additives removed from auto oils. And, it won't interfere with clutches.

    '78 XS400 Cafe/Tracker

    Actually, the seat is the original pan and mounting, and is the original foam, re-sculpted and covered by a local uphostlery wizard (a fellow member of our British Columbia Classic Motorcycle Club forum). I kind of told him how I wanted it to be shaped, and he did the rest...needless to say, I...

    '78 XS400 Cafe/Tracker

    Not sure how to categorize my little project, tried for cafe, but still lack rearsets, and changed clubmans for superbike bars (too old to appreciate laying on the instruments). Before: [/IMG] Semi-finished: [/IMG]
