    Wanted - Looking for XS650 standard, TX or southern US

    I sold my 79 Standard a few years ago and really miss it. Putting some feelers out to see what's out there. Ideally looking for something in TX or southern US, not opposed to shipping. Looking for a runner, would consider projects. No bobbers, brats, cafes, etc. Looking for stock bike. Thanks!

    Rear drum bearing spacer length?

    Been a long day, didn't really put that together. Thank you, ID was 17mm, so it's a front.

    Rear drum bearing spacer length?

    Does anyone have a bearing spacer tube (not the top hat) for a spoked rear drum hub they can measure for me? I've got one on my workbench but can't remember if it's a front or rear spacer. Thanks!

    That TX they raffled this year was gorgeous. Too bad we got there after they stopped selling tickets!

    HHB PMA installation experience

    HHB PMA: Where did you mount your regulator?

    Just finished my installation, ended up making a little aluminum bracket with some stand off/spacer deals to clear the bolt coming down from the battery box. Ended up looking real neat and tidy, cant even see it unless you're looking from below eye level. All the wiring was able to be snaked...

    HHB PMA: Where did you mount your regulator?

    Thanks for the replies. Lakeview, that's pretty much what I had in mind, kind of the only place that really make sense on my bike. Assuming that the stock location under the side covers would be too hot?

    Weird signal issue

    Take your housing apart and make sure the wires are still soldered. All three of mine had come loose and I had the same kind of issues that you did. Surprised that it worked at all once I saw the inside of the control housing.
