    Hi Jim. I just posted a question on your XS500 rear wheel swap. It just dawned on me that you probably don't get a notification since you didn't start the 18/18 thread. Could you please take a look? Thanks Ron

    Here's a link

    Not been on here in ages. Anyway, anybody have any idea what the original XS650 from the Haynes manual would be worth.

    Got the vin verification done by an old neighbor this morning at 7AM. Now all I have to do is run the gauntlet and I'll have a legit title.

    Just finished getting the frame all apart today with my father, taking it to the shop in the "trunk" of a Ford Focus: for shame.

      News just out: The bus drivers were told they did not require protective clothing. They now have to spend 14 days in isolation. Should I have confidence in the UK Authorities?

    newbie question....can I run a timing light off a 12 v trickle charger or even a battery tender with alligator clip attachments?

      I believe you can, as long as the - (neg) clip is also attached to bike ground. At least that is my experience from trying to power my timing light from a free standing car battery, while the bike was running from its own battery. This did not work, until I connected the free standing battery neg. to the bike ground.
      I would also suggest you post any future questions in the "Garage"
