Wooden wire spools Maybe the 1978 Z-50 would not be a bad choice for Saturday after all. I'm seriously considering packing a few different flavor bikes in the truck just in-case. Ride in / Ride out on the Husky 610 ~ may not be my best choice.

Need to finish my DRZ 125 / KX100 Hybrid pit bike project.

I'll send a note to a friend who works for Dominion and ask. I do know that many times they recycle those spools and send them back to the wire manuf. to get re-filled. Regardless, I'll still ask and see where it goes.

I dunno what T&B is making currently as far as big switches, but I always got good sized spools from the 350-500kcmil cable we were using a couple years back...my yard was full of "porta-tables"... call Will or Bryan and ask them to look out back, or call Terri...and ask them to toss a couple aside.

Just let me know

Would you have any idea where I should be looking for the clutch saftey switch?

If you see a 2 prong plug, unplug it and take a U shape piece of paper clip and plug it into each of the 2 slots. That
by-passes the switch.

That's what I'm thinking.. doubt you'd find such fanciness on a bike of that vintage. My 76 XS's had none of that. Double down on - plates stuck together or cable adjustment.
