Thanks I didn’t know about this particularity ! My xv500 already had that system with the “PRI” position that I’ve never understood, I even one ended out of gasoline after the reserve position failed me…maybe I should modify it the the two bikes.
I might get back to you when I get to do it, there is some vocabulary for which the author used abreviations I wouldn’t want to mess up my taps.
@johnfliesagain Hey John! I see you found this site too. I never did move to Texas…decided to stay in Maryland. I still have my 750 but I got a new 2017 Harley Road King. My retirement present to myself. Hope to see you around.
From what I am reading on the net the “30” refers to the thickness of the bearings, from 00 to 50. So giving the fact that apparently these pieces wear off anyway (slowly but they do) apparently you will be able to use any others from 00 10 20 40 and 50 and the bike will “get used to it” with time without risking anything.
Good to know also : apparently XS1100 use the same parts, we need to check but I suspect XS850 should use the same parts.
I kept looking a little and found this page where I found this quote :
“Red line: 7500 (2D) or 9000 (E)
Ignition system: points (2D) or electronic (E)
Choke direction: up and down (2D) or in and out (E)
Forks: non-adjustable (2D) or 3-way adjustable (E)”
But I don’t know what he means by Red line or what is a “points” ignition system…
What confuses me even more is that according to what he says regarding the carb “Up/Down for 2D” or “In/out for E” I should have a 2D but I still have (at least the button exists on my right commodo) an electric starter which is supposed to have appeared on the XS750E. As for thr fork I didn’t look I’ll see this weekend.
Maybe I got some kind of hybrid just in between the 2D and the E, with electric ignition but still equipped with the first carbs ? Am I repairing a prototype ?
Yea, I have been throwing the idea around for awhile, but with more and more people complaining about not being able to register it was really making sense to bite the bullet and get something up and running.
I will be trying to import obvious stuff over, but yea we will not be able to pull everything over, which stinks since there is SO much content.
