    For Sale - XS650 bobber for sale NSW

    Yeah I have considered getting it engineered. I can do, around $900 for it. I would need to make a few changes though... switch blocks on bars, exhausts, chain guard, fenders too short, side mount number plate, ADR rear tail light and number plate light. Thats honestly about all. They are all...

    Yep. A mate if mine. Bad timing but that's how it goes. Another 6 or so still in the pack. If I could I would keep it and just start the next project but with family I have to be fair. Mine is on eBay now too. Posted via Mobile

    Haha. No drama. The front fender was something I picked up (full size) at a wrecker. Then began modifying it to my liking. It was line of sight work and grinding. No drawings or anything at all. Sorry Posted via Mobile

    PAMCO Timing - Any ideas on this one?? Pete??

    Hey Brother, As of about 1hour ago she is awesome. However I had to turn the plate to almost FULL advance (counter clockwise) and now it's great. Plugs look pretty lean but ok. Happy days. Going for a ride tomorrow so will see. Pete! Posted via Mobile

    PAMCO Timing - Any ideas on this one?? Pete??

    Hi XSLeo, 1981 XS BS34 carbs rebuilt all stock needles and jets. Floats set to 24mm and needle dropped a slot. Open pipes but with baffles that close things up a lot and pod filters. Did 300kms on it on last run and it was great until it spun the copper cup for e-advance. I put in...

    PAMCO Timing - Any ideas on this one?? Pete??

    Hey XSLeo, Yep read re-read and printed then re-read carb guide. I have stripped and rebuilt my carbs myself. The last time someone who knew XS carbs better did it. The timing I did correct. Lines up to TDC to make sure cam was dialed in correctly but timing was done between F marks...

    Why Install a Hardtail? O.o?

    Wow people get touchy ay! I built mine as a rigid, I just finished a 200km ride with a pack of 15 guys to a show. It was actually fine (was it as comfy as the massive beemer type bikes, nah, but I dont like those anyhow) I have forwards and a solo seat. The holes in the road are here too... but...

    PAMCO Timing - Any ideas on this one?? Pete??

    Gonna throw in new plugs and see how I go. Having to add fuel to get her to pull would indicate lean however plugs show otherwise. If timing is too advanced or too retarded could that appear as a problem I am having. Ie/ having to use the chock/rich ener?? Just confused now as timing has...

    PAMCO Timing - Any ideas on this one?? Pete??

    Oh my god I almost took a sledgehammer to it. !!! Timing spot on. Mark is on the T line on TDC. Start her up and turn PAMCO till its in the correct range. All good. Rev it and it advances to the proper point. Now take for a ride and its fucked. Noticed that WITH choke pulled its not a...

    PAMCO Timing - Any ideas on this one?? Pete??

    Hey XSLeo, Didn't really think about the bushes as f I recall I didn't need em or something. 1981 in Australia. The advance rod goes in really snug and has absolutely no play at all. First time I installed it and the copper cup did push the pin and held in place but the pin wasn't...

    PAMCO Timing - Any ideas on this one?? Pete??

    Hah, dude thanks, I needed a laugh. My Mrs would break something even with plugs out, but the kid... hmmm, I will give that one a go. Actually, the Mrs would be ok, just stirring. Took her up the street on it a few weeks back (yep solo seat but I put her on the tank/front of the seat 1/2 on my...
