      How’s it going I’m new to this page but read a lot of posts for help and guidance. I just installed brand new pamco ignition on my 1980 XS650 and on the advance I overtightned the right side nut ( and wasn’t holding a 10mm on the left side stupid mistake) and broke the ends off my advance arms. I was wondering if anybody knew where I could find just the arms and not the whole assembly off mikes for $78?

      Hey Gary, just saw a 76 xs in Mosinee, WI for sale on craigslist that said ask for Gary. Is that you or someone else? It is 2 months old, wondering if that bike is still around.

      Need some info on float height. Have an 80 Special with BS34's with plastic floats. What is the proper float level. The Clymer manual says 27.3 mm but I've read that is for brass floats. The plastic floats I'm told should be set at 22.1 mm. I tried the plastic setting and gas started leaking out of the vent. Would appreciate advice. Thanks in advance.

    Over 250 Oriental and a few British bikes have come and gone, 1 Harley Hummer that never ran.
    Owned my first xs650 in 1974, was away from the fold til about 2005 and have owned a bunch of them since.

    Working on old oriental bikes. Drag em out of the barn, get em going good (better) again, ride for a while and set em loose, repeat.


    The shed of ill repute and XS parts supply is open again!​
