122W 09' 54.27" x 47N 08' or -122.16507 x 52.81" or 563,300.0 x 47.14800 if you want to program a cruise missile to fall on my neighbor :-) my *nix browser doesn't want to cooperate with the mapping applet
I'd be happy to add myself but I think it's asking for too much info. What's wrong with adding a pin semi-anonamously? I reg-ed for this forum site and assume that's enough to be added to the map. We get warned daily about leaving our open data tracks (photos, e-adrs, info) all over the net and this is an example. Do you know what/who Frappr Maps is? I know you have a fine idea but, as it stands, guess I'll opt out. Sorry.

Hello. I'm new to your board, and from the looks of it may be one of the few Canadians. I live in Toronto Ontario about an hour from Buffalo. I've owned 3 bikes in my time. The 83' shadow I ride daily. Years ago I had an 82' RD 350 that blew up the summer I bought it. I guess thats what I get for spending $400, and last fall I picked up a 75' XS 650 B. I love it! Doing daily maintanance on it is a dream compared to the Shadow. Its easy to reach all the components, there are a million websites dedicated to the XS and, parts are easily available and relatively cheap as compared to my Shadow. I have to go so I can start reading the abundance of information this board offers. Later
I was having a little trouble accessing the map... but I live on the island of Kauai. Anyone needing some XS parts way out here.. drop me a line. firstname.lastname@example.org. Not a pro.. I just have collected a bunch of parts.. also need some carb help.. my 81 special II starts missing at 4500 rpm and vibrates a bit... any help?
I exist in a northern English town called Preston.
Heaven it ain't but it's home and it's close to Scotland which is heaven. The roads are great up there and mostly empty. The people are friendly and mostly Polish ( yes. Honestly ). Oh, and then there's the whiskey. Mmmmmmmmm. Heaven.
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!
