Hi I am a new bike owner and I recently purchased a 1975 yamaha xs650 (TX650B?). Heres what I know about the bike. It was originally purchased from a farm in Southern Saskatchewan where it had been stored in a barn for a long time. The previous owner lost interest in the bike and let it sit for a while, letting the gas rust the tank more than it already was. When i acquired the bike it was still running and idling but the owner claimed it would stall after getting up in first gear and all that was needed was a carb sync. The previous owner also rebuilt the forks and carbs as well as replaced many parts as listed. It has a little over 7000km in original mileage. -Shaved frame -New front and rear tires -New throttle cables and assembly -New tach and speedo cables -New brake lines, brake lever and master cylinder -New handle bar switches -Renthal handle bars -New spark plug wires and condensors (only 1 installed for some reason) -XS pod filters -Custom exhaust -New lowering rear shocks -Bronze swing arm bushings (not installed) -New battery So far I have rebuilt the petcocks, lined the fuel tank with por 15, throughly cleaned the carbs, fixed the bendix gear, replaced the oil, and adjusted/lubricated clutch and throttle cables. Stripped the tank of paint. My future plans are to powder coat the motor and rims. Replace the bendix gear (clip had already been tightened once and has lost its strength. Gear is chewed up). Paint the tank. Fix the clutch cover where I stripped 2 bolts into the block. Sync and tune the carbs. Take it out for a test drive when it warms up (-22C on April 6th). My main issues right now are with the carbs leaking gas from the bottom of the bowl (as shown in picture). Not sure what the issue could be. Carbs are BS38 CV solex non linked with rebuild kit from Mike XS. I would appreciate any helpful tips going forward with my project.
