    Really? I see plenty of replies. http://xjbikes.com/Forums/viewtopic/t=42184/postdays=0/postorder=asc/start=0.html
    That forum is mainly active in the evenings. I don't think you meant to give wrong impressions about getting replies to your questions, but I also don't want some random person thinking that XJ Bikes is a dead forum.
    Happy to see that you got it running.

    I didn't think that you were :nod but I know how easy it is to update on one forum and not another. BTDT and I got some people unnecessarily riled a few times.

    My first bike was very similar to yours. '83 Nighthawk 550. Inline 4, shaft drive, 6 speed. Fast for what it was. One year wonder.
