    Electric start fix UK

    Tri spark makes a good electronic ignition kit, made in Australia (don't say anything about the women's world cup) . Don't go with xscharge.

    Electric start fix UK

    It's a relatively simple fix, if you can take the side cover off and clutch assembly. Look up starter Bendix gear on the forum and that's what needs to be done to fix it. Some sites sell a set of a new Bendix gear, spring and the gear as well.

    XS Restomod rolling chassis

    What swing arm is that and how does it fit?

    What have you done to your XS today?

    Confusingly enough, another measurement today got me 2.3ohm on the coil primaries, and then the expected 12v down to 1v on the green wire and I had spark. Very weird. Must be a bad coil. Definitely wasn't looking forward to replacing the ignition unit.

    What have you done to your XS today?

    Anyone know how much voltage the pamco green wire is supposed to read when it's not plugged to a coil? I'm trying to figure out if I have a faulty coil and pamco or just the coil that's blown. And what's it supposed to read when it's plugged to the coil? My coil reads 1ohm across the primaries...

    I surrender

    So my pamco also probably just fried as well. Bike cut out after less than 2 seconds of firing. Primary coil had 1 ohm of resistance, and my pamco unit green wire is constantly giving 0v, not 12v to 1v as in the other thread. Looked up the transistor that was supposed to work and of course it's...

    High Ratio Primary Gears

    Has Ivan got any more in the current batch? I'm running a cfmoto rear wheel with a 18/39t sprocket that is the smallest I can go(not actually from a cfmoto but from a drz since I've got a bracket to offset the sprocket so it lines up) I was planning to run a 5th gear overdrive hoping to get...

    Mr Riggs Hydraulic Clutch Conversion

    How do you find shifting gears with the setup? I haven't had my bike running yet but with the setup, HD springs, I find I can't change gears by spinning the wheels off the ground. Measuring the clutch plate travel gets me about 1.3mm which I thought was a bit low. I think there is probably about...

    Where did you order the first gear from?

    Oh yikes that's a few more than me, yeh I'm not too sure how I got it either.. had the bike sitting for half a year, then found the Kickstarter was jammed and not lining up to turn the motor, took out the cover and found that.

    Oh Oh if it's not too much of a hassle, are you able to post a photo of the damaged first gear up close here? Wondering how much of your teeth is damaged, mines only about half of each of the two teeth

    Thanks, I know a someone with a spare transmission set, hoping it will be a simple remove the old two sets and put in the "new " ones.

    Sorry I'm not too sure what you mean by that. As in the bike can't take off in first gear? How long did it take you to split the crank case and have you got a video or resource that helped? I don't want to take the heads off if possible

    Did you have issues with the bike running on first gear? I have the same problem but I have e-start so I'm planning to use that instead of splitting the crank case for now.. unless the bad news is first gear won't work properly if some teeth are missing

    Kickstart gear broken on transmission side

    Wait hold on, the gear with the broken teeth isn't used for anything else other than the kick start right? So it should still run and move fine?

    Kickstart gear broken on transmission side

    Thanks Gary. Hopefully between the e start and the remaining fine teeth I can make do until I'm ready to do a complete rebuild of the motor.

    Kickstart gear broken on transmission side

    Also with the e-start, my bikes a 1979 447 engine, I always assumed the pinch ring thingy was broken but it appears to be fine. Is it worth still trying to squeeze it?

    Kickstart gear broken on transmission side

    Damn that's unlucky (also nice to know I'm not the only idiot with a problem) Anyways before that I had issues trying to kickstart, where trying to kick it would jam up and I falsely believes it to be seized pistons as I had it parked up for 6 months. But after trying to turn over on the...

    Kickstart gear broken on transmission side

    Hi all My kick start gear has broken on the transmission side as in the picture. Is it possible to replace the gear without splitting the crank case or potentially get someone to weld in some metal on the teeth? From my understanding the e-start doesn't work off that same gear so potentially I...

    Mr Riggs Hydraulic Clutch Conversion

    I ended up buying the hydraulic clutch kit from xs650shop de because I needed to get the bike going but its a pricey kit. I haven't installed it yet but supposedly it needs a light shave on the case to clear sometimes. I think if you make it fit for a better price it would be pretty popular
