      Hey Gary,

      Any chance you have a TCI box for a 1983 xs650? JimD54 said you might have one for sale.
      My bike won't rev with the regulator plugged in.
      If you have any ideas about this let me know. Just replaced my regulator with no luck.

      Need to get rid of my excess parts and motor. Would you be interested? Make you a deal you can't refuse.
      1. gggGary

      GGGGAry, I've been lurking here long enough to finally create an account. It seems like every question you can "google" about an xs has your name somewhere in the thread so I thought I'd drop in and say hello and that I look forward to using your insight on this new project!

      Hey Gary. I was posting about my mixture screw being... "Screwed" up. I am looking to buy new ones because im having a hard time getting them out. But, rather than buying new ones if I sent them to you to get them taken out and new screws put in how much would it run me? And if I decide to get new ones which site should I buy from?
      1. gggGary
        Wow this must be old. Sorry i never saw it. I did see you post that you got them out though.

      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?
      1. gggGary
        sure post up an ad in the classies.

      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, and one Harley Hummer that never ran ;^} now Buells are sneaking into the shed.........
    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, Buell, EBRs and BM'rs. Drag em out of the barn, get em going good (better) again, ride for a while and set em loose, repeat.


    And when they came for me, there was no one left to stop them.
