Thumbs up

Lookin' good, Kurt.

It's so much nicer to see what we are working on.

I notice how easy and how pleasant it is to work on the bikes I have fixed up compared to the way they arrived.

We are going to see the SECA in September, right?

ABSOLUTELY!



Right now, the SECA is getting some new Shoes!



and some repainting....



It's been a long trip already for the SECA with a failed starter clutch rubbing on the inside of the cases



New Rings and a complete re-gasket of the motor...…



If I could only get the carbs RIGHT (before & after)!



IT WILL BE AT THE VINTAGE YAMAHA RALLY!!!

Sincerely,

Smile Back to Pensacola....

XS11 Friends,

This thread has been dormant for a while as I hadn't been doing much on this bike in about a YEAR! Now I'm trying to get this one ready for the VINTAGE YAMAHA RALLY '19 and have done quite a bit lately.

I'm gonna do the "WASHER SWAP" this afternoon so I'm looking around a bit for reminders as I haven't done this in a while...…

Here's an update on the bike.....
Installed the 3.0 Dyna coil upgrade to avoid screwing around with these 40 year old Coils. Used the kit from LEN at XJ4Ever.com. Perfect kit with all the supplies needed to do it RIGHT and quickly.



I also installed the upgrade fuse panel from LEN at XJ4ever as well which includes all the wires properly color coded and ready to install...



Gave it a test start and immediately stripped the frame for the powder coater:
You can see in the coil & wiring photos how BAD this frame really was. It came from PENSACOLA and all that salt air didn't help keep her pretty for 40 years.







Tomorrow is supposed to be a rainy day so I'll be in the garage making some progress. Shame is all the parts going onto this frame are old and everything I bolt on will make the beautiful frame look like crap. Oh well..... Better to start with a clean slate and a perfect (NON MODIFIED) frame.

I'll keep ya'll posted. Here is a mock-up of SORT of what I want this machine to look like when done...…

The frame came out amazing.

That will be a unique bike when it's done. Should spice up the rally a bit.

Making Progress....VYR? Maybe....

XS11 Friends,
I haven't done much on this machine in a while since I've been distracted with the other new addition to my stable the FZR. However, I decided to re-double my efforts on this one...

Haven't really posted since the Powder Coating was done.....

Got the carbs all dialed in this week. Everything is good there and the ColorTune has been completed on all the cylinders to get proper combustion.

Decided to toss the old coils in the trash and avoid the inevitable problems from 40 year old coils. Fitted a new set of Dynas...


I'd probably be driving it but I am struggling with the front brake master.... can't get it to bleed. It has been sitting for a couple years. Probably gonna have to pull it completely apart or just replace it.

I purchased a set of front lines (two hose) and they seem to be a bit long. Not going to be an issue once the fairing is back on just a bit un-tidy.

Pretty Much Ready for final assembly....


But I do need to fabricate some mufflers. I'm sure the neighbors will be happy to hear a set of mufflers vs. open head pipes.



I also have to decide which tank this is going to be getting..... I have a PRISTINE (basically) Standard tank, a repainted standard tank (to perfect match colors) and a tank I'm putting an R1 cap into....

This is an older photo I shared before..... Probably going with this beauty of a tank.

IF I can get some of this done in the next three weeks..... It MIGHT BE at the VYR with the FZR.... FINGERS CROSSED!

Kurt

Smile Tank Change..... Mufflers Done

Making a LITTLE progress on the '79 XS1100.

I've been able to get a little done on this machine lately. A friend gave me some decals he hadn't any use for and the wheels in my head quickly started turning.....


I've been discussing this with JeffH and trying to decide if I wanted to install these with or without the white background. Kinda figured the black only would be more subdued and fit this RESTO-MOD a little better. Finally decided to include the white and I think it was the better move?


I also managed to get the exhaust finalized and this bike (like all my other XS11's) has HD mufflers fitted. I'm not at all happy with my welding as a recent job change has left me without access to a TIG welder. Had to do this one with my 110v Lincoln. It's solid and sounds great but the welding is PISS POOR to say the least.

NOTE: These MUFFS have been shortened several inches and angled from the original. I BELIEVE there are from what is referred to as DYNA GLIDE (don't know crap about an HD). These are a fantastic option when the OEM Yammies rot away. Plenty of flow and a decent sound.


Anyway.... making a little progress on this one.
