I am co-hosting this rally at the Iron Horse Motorcycle Lodge in September. We've been doing this since 2002, so we're getting pretty good at having this party. We have some great rides planned. Pictures, info, and history at XS Southeast. Home for the rally is XS11.com. I would sure like to see XS650's at this again, but all are welcome, even if you ride a Harley.

SE Rally Update So, time to start finalizing things for the SE Rally. I will post an updated weekend Schedule of Events in a few days. For starters, if you are a first time attendee, WELCOME We are planning to meet some new people again this year and chat with them about their bikes, then ride-ride-ride. A big WELCOME to the returnees too!
FOOD: As in the past, Iron Horse will publish the Fri-Sat Menu's a few days before we arrive and I will post them. For those that have made a room reservation (at the I-H) and paid the deposit then I-H will just take your order and post the charge to the room. Payable at checkout. If you have a roomie or tent mate then they will need to setup their own account with I-H so they can order and then have their food charges on their credit card. Same deal as last year.
ROADS: We will be riding the routes and doing a road check in the next week or so. Most of the roads here are in the good to excellent category so we should be good with the routes unless there have been some washouts or bridge problems. If you want a trip tic or gps file let me know after Sept 1 and I will email it to you.
ARRIVAL / CHECK-IN: When you arrive at the Iron Horse be sure to check-in with the I-H at the Registration Desk in their office. In addition please sign-in at the XS11 table we setup in the dining hall.
RALLY SHIRT: See the SE Rally Shirt thread if you want a shirt. At the rally you can pickup your shirt and pay for it at our XS11 sign-in table.
GEORGIA MEET POINT: As in the past couple years I think we will try and meet up at Day's Inn in Cornelia / Baldwin Georgia. Some ride up US441 to get around the Atlanta hassle and Cornelia in on US441 where it crosses I-985 and US23. That would be Thursday night Sept 25th. Then Friday AM Sept 26 we meet up with Brent and JetMech and ride over the mountain to the Iron Horse.
If you have some questions or need additional info please PM jetmech or myself and will we try to get you an answer. I have to correct that ride-ride-ride statement (above). I guess its more like eat, talk, loiter, ride-a-while gas up and repeat isn't it??
r80rt: :)This is a splendid write up, THANK YOU!!!!

joshua: The regulator/rectifier unit I got from Mikes PMA has closer hole spacing than original. Are we supposed to mill the holes to fit?
Jun 7, 2017 19:25:58 GMT -5
joshua: My bad. I found the bracket they supplied to mount the rectifier/regulator... Uh oh. How is this meant to work? Which way is it meant to mount? Looks like I have to use some spacers or something. Good instructions would be nice.

craig8johnson: Not sure if this is the right spot or not but oh well...

craig8johnson: I'm checking the charging system. I'm afraid I might have fried the last battery. With the solid state regulator (after market) what should it be charging at. The book says, I think, 15 volts. I'm hitting 17 when revved. Is that too high?
Jul 11, 2017 18:06:19 GMT -5
gggGary: Yes 17 volts is too high, about 14 volts is max, sounds like you don't have the right regulator or it's wired wrong.

tt650: Trying to breathe life into a 1980 that's been stored (indoors) for 25 yrs. Air filters are dry rotted. Have cleaned carbs but she only runs briefly on choke then stops. Need jet setting info and other ideas that might help her idle and rev.

trix13: Hey everyone! New to the forum and am fighting those gremlins!! New charging system, ignition switch, coil and fuse box. Resistance is higher than normal on the ignition pick up so I'm trying to find one. No such luck yet.

trix13: Also, even though all of my connections are clean, I cannot seem to find out why , when at higher rpms, I hit the signals and the rpms pulse with the signals...hahah. same with the brake light. I appreciate all input!!

adlpc: Hello all! Been enjoying your edifying posts and discussions - and as a fan of the XS650 since my early teenage years happy that I now own a 1980 Special which I plan to turn into a vintage half faired racer. Thank you all for being here!

jimothyj: Hello everyone, I just joined & wish would have known about this site in 2014 when I brought my 1974 TX650A back from the grave. I have spent a good deal of $$ and alot of time on it. Just painted it and working on electrical, I will post pics soon,

louisvan: trix13 - I had a problem with my 1975 SX650. When I got to highway speeds, the engine lost power. The problem was in the connectors. At a certain vibration and the wind pushing on the wiring loom, the connector lost continuity. A bad crimp to the wire.
