Looking for people to make this site better!
as you all know, I created this site to help people who were frustrated with the old site who couldn’t register, but this site has really failed to take off.
I don’t want this site to also fail like the other, so I was hoping I could get a handful of people who wanted to really help this site along, I need a few things really…
- people who want to create content, to help populate the site with relevant info that people can use.
- people who want to spread the word about the site. (facebook, etc)
- suggestions on improvements
I’m willing to make people moderators on here to make changes as needed.
any help is appreciated!
RE: yamaha xs750 runs great for 24 km then dies
hmm, this is a tricky one, I would do a few things
- check to make sure your floats aren’t sticking, this could cause a “too much fuel” problem.
- I would also do a carb sync to make sure they are all running consistently.
- check the plugs to see how they look, are they gapped properly?
- are all 3 cylinders firing? check to see if all three header tubes are getting warm.
- are your vacuum caps in good shape? plugged?
if you get it running good again and can take it on another ride, try riding with the gas cap popped (make sure the tank isn’t super full so you don’t get spillage out the top) and see if it dies again at that 24km mark.
I experienced something similar to the dying while riding problem, the gas cap on my bike wasn’t venting properly/quick enough for whatever reason and it would actually prevent the gas from flowing down into the carbs and would cause it to starve for fuel, it would then eventually equalize pressure and flow down and was able to start again.

Just giving an update, due to some asset updates our template has been made incompatible with our current version of forum software, I will be doing some updates over the next couple of days to return our template back to what it was supposed to be.
RE: Carburetor : missing gas admission on middle carb
those ports are typically used for syncing the 3 carbs together, when not in use the middle port is just capped off.

PICKERINGTON, Ohio – The American Motorcyclist Association has announced that next year’s premier celebration of vintage motorcycling, AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days, will be July 6-8, 2018, at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in Lexington, Ohio.

A fundraiser for the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame, AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days showcases classic motorcycles of all makes and styles, and honors the riders who made them famous.

It is our longest continuously running event which speaks not only to our valued partnership with the AMA but to the deep passion for motorcycling across the country,” said Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course President Craig Rust. “We’re proud to be working with the AMA again to bring back this great event to North Central Ohio for the 24th consecutive year.”
Activities include the AMA Vintage Grand Championship, which features road racing, motocross, hare scrambles, trials and dirt-track racing. Another top attraction is North America’s largest motorcycle swap meet with parts, bikes and memorabilia from all eras. Bike shows bring out examples of some of history’s most beloved motorcycles. Stunt shows and demo rides of current production bikes keep attendees entertained, while seminars on numerous topics by noted motorcycling experts keep them informed.

RE: Electric wiring
If anyone is interested you can request me in PM for a colored electrical wiring of the XS750E that I just finished.
I would insert it here but the picture is too large so it might be complicated, I get an error when uploading.
I also got the wiring in good quality for XS750, XS750SE but it’s in french though it’s nor hard to translate and I can help you in case you need translation, and I didn’t color them.
awesome, feel free to host via something like dropbox and link back to here.
Jdseibe's 1977 XS750 Cafe Racer
Hey All, figured I would show a few pics and details of my 1977 2D Cafe Racer Project.
I originally bought this bike in a pile of parts for $100, little by little of the years I pieced it back together, put in a 79 Special engine because the original was shot. cut up the frame and went the route of a cafe racer, swapped exhaust to a Jardine 3 into 1, pod filters from MIkesXS, clubman bars, custom throttle cable, short twist race throttle, aftermarket gauges, signals, and a bunch more.
