Yeah "pretty much" mumble mumble LOL
These things are never done. Great job!!Hello all. I am happy to announce that this bike is pretty much finished. I realize that there is no "end" to owning and maintaining a 41 year old motorcycle, but all of the major systems have now been gone through and it is running like new. The last couple of steps to finish it were as follows:
What he said!Very nice Rhy! Looks like calendar materiel to me.

Definitely. Anyone hoping to see a straight restoration will be disappointed. Dad had several modifications like this in the works and I plan to follow through with them.You gonna follow through on your Dad's plan to put electric start on the XS-1?
Haha, "never finished"... They are the stock headers and I kept the original jets, so it looks like I have some work to do... Any suggestions for the pilot jet or should I just bother with the main?If you still have the original 132.5 mains in there, I'd bump them up a size to 135s.
Nope, everything is stock, so I will start with smaller adjustments.Have you done any mods
I'm going to follow that advice as well. That's how I ordered the jets.Many report their all stock BS34 equipped bikes run better with one size larger main.
Yes, that did come out very nice, but if the headpipes are the original double wall type, they shouldn't be turning blue like that. That indicates you're running lean. If you still have the original 132.5 mains in there, I'd bump them up a size to 135s.
