I checked on the turnsignals not in the greatest shape sorry

do you have the line for the front brake. This cable is connected to the brake light and it is installed at one end of the brake lever. Again it is the cable that turns the brake light on. thanks

I'm in need of the retainers that goes over the fork ears and holds the headlight secure. Their rectangular and has a reflector that faces outward.

Thank you,

I need a Case, Chain Tensioner. I was re-tensioning the chain when the bolt stripped.

Cyrock, that is an easy heli-coil fix. Use the search button at the top of the page and look for 'helicoil' and 'tensioner'

Be very careful about turning over the motor only by hand until you get the tensioner fixed. If you try to start it up, and the chain is worn, there is a high risk of the chain jumping a tooth, and this will cause bent valves. You want to avoid this! :eek:

Thanks Ken - I've not turned the engine over since I set the timing mark. I guess my next question is where I could find a helicoil kit?

Any industrial or automotive supply shop should be able to set you up. On this side of the border, we've got places like Acklands, CenturyVallen, NAPA, Lordco. McMasterCarr supply would probably have these available online too.

If you send me a pic of what you need I have 2 engines totally disasembeled in boxes maybe I can help with a housing and or covers

After looking at the housing, I found that the previous owner had put a 6mm heli-coil in the housing and that is what stripped out. Saturday I went out looking for a 7 mm heli-coil and was unable to find one. It seems everyone had a 8 mm but no one had a 7 mm. The 8 mm looked to be too big so I did the next best thing. I put a 1/4 heli-coil and that worked.

do you have a kick starter available?

I need crome speedo and tach, also need a tear drop gas tank for my 79 xs1100sf

06-10-2007, 09:33 AM
I'm looking for the air cleaners that attach to the back of the carbs. I just bought a 1978 XS Eleven and it doesn't have that part. I'm also in need of the right side cover. Do you have these? Thanks! Looking forward to riding!!!!!

Needed the headlight. Maybe the gauges.
