Re: Got another XS650

Like many of us I never really gave the XS much thought back-in-day, but they have really grown on me in recent years. Only problem I can see is the number of them that seem to get butchered into yet another hideous Cafe Racer.

Re: Brake caliper piston

Re: Z900 tank for sale may fit z1000

Re: Cannot get float heights correct

A1 is a Gravity fuel tap and they are VERY prone to passing, more so if they've been allowed to dry out at any point. Only real cure is a new tap as seal kits wont repair this fault. The tap should not cause or allow the carbs to overflow, whether passing whilst off or left on. Of course, but on ol...

Re: Need Respray to A1 on this

I agree about the A!'s being a little dull in standard mode, I have toyed with the idea of having it in standard colours with a little extra sparkle and laquer to give it a little more shine and depth.
