I've been following the FB xs11 somewhat and have become aware that a lot of them have turned to FB because they can't register here. Is someone working on this issue? They are being deprived of the...

We

all learned this way. One other thing for you I would suggest is to buy a copy of the "Haynes" xs11 manual. Clymers has better pictures; but, the Haynes explains the function of each system very...

For gods sake, don't go under that valve cover for any reason! When I gave you back the bike I handed you a sheet of paper with the spec's, mileage at the time, shim numbers and clearances,...

Tuning.

Pablo, bring it back here and I'll put it back the way it was when it left here. STOP tinkering! Make a list of all the things you've done to it so I know what else to look at.

If I remember

when I was timing the cams to the crank and recording all the shim sizes and clearances, I noted that he still had 1.5 coils in it. I tested them and they were good so I'm pretty sure he had a BR in...

nope

His father in law was the PO. I don't know who did the motor swap or harness hacking or why. He brought the bike to me originally to graft in one of TC's fuse panels. Once I started taking it apart,...

I actually

had pulled a diode out of an old harness and tested it to make sure it was good if I'd needed it. However replacing the old relay brought the headlight back to life. It maybe toast now, or perhaps...

Harness

His harness was hacked up pretty good when I first saw his bike. The headlight had been hotwired to the battery. When I put in his fuse panel I cut all jury rigging out and restored the harness by...

Fork uppers

You may want to check your fork uppers. The config of the triple tree keeps everything in line. Hard to go out of wack unless the forks are bent. It doesn't take much deviation at the top to affect...

It's just crazy right now. Old people look but don't see you or don't care and pull out in front of you anyway. Old people are the worst but they aren't the only ones. Everyone is in a hurry. I have...

I'm done

last two rides had too many close calls. I'm done riding unless it's a snow plow. I was watching the drivers passing me and only one in five weren't texting. Weaving into my side and forcing me onto...

Carbs

These carbs are a hobby of mine. If your not comfortable doing them ship them to me with return post and I'll clean them up and send them back. If no parts are required your cost would be just...

It can take a long time to force the air bubbles down. The pesky devils always want to flow back up hill. Don't you remember when we did your 11. Jim pumped and I pumped on that handle for hours...
