    cam chain installation

    Just a quick question for you guys that have been doing this awhile. Just finished the bottom end and getting started on the top end.

    Street tracker tires??

    Duro, Maxis, etc. Can anyone give me some direction which way to go with tires for my '83 XS650 street tracker? Want it to look authentic but tire quality is most important (I hate to fall). 19 in the front, 18 in the rear. Wheels are off a 77 XS I think. Thanks for the help!! Mark C

    I hate old clear coat!

    Does anyone know the easiest way to strip clear coat off my aluminum forks, engine cases etc without staining the aluminum? The eventual goal is to polish them up.

    Fiberglass Question

    Ok. Just bought my '83 XS in-a-basket and am getting ready to start my street tracker project. I figure seat and tank are the right place to start. I keep hearing these horror stories about ethanol eating fiberglass resin. Is there an alternative to fiberglass out there? Are there glass tanks...
