    Basic sidecar set up?????

    Then again, I have seen sidecars at the True Grits Fun Run. That’s a 50cc event. That’s 50, not 500. :laugh:

    VR points stuck up

    I go on faith. I got a rotor rewind about 20 years ago. What could possibly go wrong. 🤔 I’m in total agreement that the mechanical regulator needs periodic attention.

    Engine change-Now Serial Number does not match

    For most XS650 bikes, I really don't think it matters. I think collectors are few and it's generally XS1 through TX650 (1970 to 1973). I think most of us do stuff with them in the garage then ride them. They aren't exactly valuable. Mostly just to us. Original engine baby!!! :poke:

    Clutch and throttle cables

    Keep in mind, handlebars are purely subjective. What's comfortable for one, is miserable for the other.

    It might be a nice thing to document on this forum.

    Clutch and throttle cables

    Could they have put the wrong cable in the package? I have that cable on my bike and found it plenty long for stock Special bars.

    I took her (Robin) out for dinner and dancing later in the evening. It’s getting cold out there tonight.
