I'm embarrassed. Jazzman PM'd me, and just then I remembered my TIG is gown for a cooling pump seal. Serves me right for having a beer after work. Now I need a couple more to damp my embarrassment!
Sorry,
Jim
PS. Jazzman, I'll PM you as soon as I get my seal kit installed. If you haven't gotten it welded up before then, I'll still do it freeby.

Thank you jazzmans, that is one hell of a great link, looks an interesting operation but up for the challenge, I'll let you know how I get on sourcing parts over here in Australia, really would solve a lot of problems for me, too much night riding & for that you need good lights but the old charging can bring you undone in a big way!
I've nearly soughted out most problems, this would be a great addition to my bikes though, [burn roos @ 100m if I had my way!], especially when you do dumb things like riding into Wannaaring for three hours [from the east], night riding in the those parts of the country is aways full of nice furry creatures
Good roads too!



Anyway thanks again for the link.
Cheers
Baza

The new coil;



The new electrics box(really it's just a place to put a switch)



I'll post pics of the new clutch cover/sprockets/chain in a bit.

but, I started her tonight! yeemuthrfucking haqw!

Now a question, How the hell do you guys kick start these things with one kick? It's a total bitch for me, hard as hell to start. My buddies who all run kick start bikes, can kick this bike and start it in one or two kicks, so any pointers.... Me, I kick and kick and kick and kick and kick, and wheez, and kick and bitch, and kick and kick etc etc...thanks.

Ive seen this bike posted before on ADV...maybe not by you, but pictured in your backyard. The guy was gripeing about how sluggish it was off the line and at idle. Several inmates and i agreed that the two into one intake (cool as it may be) is probably hurting your performance rather than improving it. I think if you reference my "Just another xs650 build" thread you will see that. There are several guys makeing smaller ones that will probably allow the air and fuel to reach the combustion chamber quicker and improve the throttle response.
Hardtails are fun!

Yeah, that was me. Those problems (and breaking the clutch cover) caused me to re-appraise and rebuild the ignition. I found multiple issues (grounding points) that were leaching power as well as the coil was toast, i.e. over-impedence. So, hopefully I'll be able to test run the bike tomorrow, and see what the throttle response is. If after all I've done, the bike is still crap bogging down low, I'll look into replacing the intake and/or the carb.

others have run this exact intake with no issues, in fact, they get major power from it, so I'm going to give it one more try.

I still suck at starting the monster, but I never was any good at it. any suggestions are appreciated. others can start the bike instantly, so it's got to be technique.

Try just rotating the engine until you feel compression, then go about an 1/8 of a kick more, let the kicker come back up to the top, then jump on it like you mean it, a little blip of throttle as you kick through shouldn't flood a twin with a single carb...it'll give you a little fuel to play with on the next kick.

yeah, XS's kick ass.

No new pics today, working too much (no days off in two weeks)

but, an update.

last sunday, at my bud's house, after finishing the last bits of wiring, I couldn't kick her to start to save my life, none of my kick only bud's could either, so I said;

" hey Ryan, I'm gonna pull your (stock) carbs off your (non-registered, and thus not ridable but perfectly good) XS to test if the carbs are the issue." (note I didn't 'ask') he said; "sure." I swap stock mikunis on. bike starts first kick......
So I tell him I'll buy him new carbs, he says just give em back when I get my own replacements, then lets me use his throttle cable also.

Some people. :)


since then I've been riding her to work, (at 3 am) and today, the headlight decided to poop. Not untill I was halfway to work, of course. I rode dirty the rest of the way, and the one cop I saw just waved me on when I motioned to him that I knew my headlight was out. (amazing).

Now I've got a tractor headlight, UNI pod filters. and the bitch starts between the second and third kick, I haven't quite dialed in how much throttle she needs (sometimes a bit, sometimes none)

New carbs (stock mikunis) are on their way, hopefully this week.


yay!

new pics this week I hope?

Well, a crappy update.


I bought a set of bs34 carbs, swapped them on the bike and it ran.

running a bit lean on the left side, I kept adjusting the air/fuel mixture to try to enrichen it (145 45 jets btw) ordered a new set of sweet pipes, and then last sat,

BOOM! sputter, sputter, sputter.
pulled the motor, new pipes came in the next day. :(


oil filter looks like this;

finally got the top end opened up sat....




soon as it stops raining, I'll start on the bottom, gotta check everything.
if it wasn't for bad luck.....
