;D Why thank you sir's for your kind remarks. ;D I will be the first one to admit that I can be an opinionated S.O.B. at times (it’s the medication or lack of morning coffee ). I had pondered the issue on how to do it myself. With a little nudge from HAMMER I decided that you can only knock on someone’s door so long before you walk away. In this case I left a note in the mail box saying that I would never be back again. I really don’t think that it was any way underhanded. The BikeGuy was warned well before hand with postings and emails from more than a few members, without response.
After this next little flame job I will be moving on!
Besides; the Guy doesn’t even own a XS650 anymore. :: WASS UP WIT DAT. Rick Jeez! If people want to give money away for nuttin I'll email them my address or set up my own paypal account.
RICH! Or should I now say Caferich? Glad to see you made the jump. How did that FZR600 swingarm etc work out? I'm going out to the motorcycle room after I finish typing this post to work on my version of that modification. I'm closing in on completetion but I seem to always find something else to change. Did you remove your starter completely? I'm wondering how large a battery to fit and I have to figure out the wiring from scratch, UGH, not my cuppa tea. Give me a call or post or whatever, I'd love to hear about your project update. Cheers, 50gary (GFW)
Ah, so the MUTINY continues, I feel like I`ve just sacked the place... ;D ;D ;D...Too bad I couldn`t just remove the Bitch, I got NO way to get her off my old posts, so I just cloned her...well, it ain`t like she`s REAL boys, now is it???
So....want do we want? Maybe give her to Godzilla? Beauty & the Beast..too cute to stick her in the box..aw gee, I can`t say that either....

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!!

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.
