    What have you done to your XS today?

    Nice bike . Mufflers and fab on the pipes outstanding. Waiting for the pipes to show was long enough. Bike looks great.

    81 SH misfiring, need help!

    It might be missing a vacuum cap on the carb boot or a bad spark plug.

    To ditch the points system or not?

    I went with the Pamco and E-Advance. It eliminates the mechanical advance. Works great no problems.

    Its almost winter. Time to ruin another bike (1970 XS1)

    Going with the extended swing arm would be better than the hard tail. Brat style would be my choice.

    Top end starved of oil.

    I would recommend you split the cases and clean oil passages and inspect the crank replace the seals. Chances are the oil pump failed causing the damage to the cam and rockers. Scored piston also lack of oil also. Do it right the first time.

    Good to hear it passed the MOT. Glad your getting some riding time in and the feedback. Happy at 65 is a good speed.

    Another Bobber Project...

    Welcome. Looks like it just needs some love. I would fix the charging issue and since it runs is a good thing. The yadda yadda yadda rephase and rebuild is big bucks. Depending on the condition of the motor and your wallet it might not be cost effective at this point and better spent on things...

    Those pictures of the bike are really well done and a nice view of surrounding area. Board track or street fighter the side view if the bike looks all motor bad to the bone so to speak. The video of the ride by looks like a good place to grab some gears for some load testing of the motor. Horse...
