If it has been bored how much oil does this engine now require? Also, The blinkers don't work at idle only when the engine is running a bit faster. Is this normal, do I need a new battery or something?
Love this bike and love this thread! You guys are great.
thats one purdy xl but i think it isnt an 85 model as they had completely black engines and not red cosmetics i think. it might be an 83 or 84? oh and the blinkers sounds like a burnt rectifier if it isnt the battery. mines doing the same after charging my phone/ipod and battery for my whole trip.
