Perhaps yes, I haven’t looked at the scheme yet but that may be it, the middle one was discand I don’t whether it’s normal or not

RE: Plane/Rod bearings.
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.
Another tip : look for 2F3116563000 (without the spaces like in 2F3-11656-30-00) , I managed to find this page https://www.worldmotoparts.com/oem/page-unit.php?id=363905 which apparently sells these parts, but I don’t know anything about this website so remain careful.
Carburetor : missing gas admission on middle carb
I’m in the process of dismanteling the bike I just bought to clean and make some maintenance on everything, I removed the seat/battery/etc the last weekend, had some struggle with the PRI position since I don’t know what full word it stands for so I kind of put gasoline everywhere,…anyway.
After taking all of these appart I noticed I got what looks like the gas admission for the middle carb that wasn’t connected to anything, I’d like to know what (I guess a tap) it’s supposed to be connected to, left or right tap or something else ? There is rust on it so I hope water didn’t get in there and damaged anything, there is come evidence mices have been living there so they might have eat what was supposed to be here.
If anyone has a picture from the top of the three carburetors with explanations that would be great.
RE: Plane/Rod bearings.
Are you talking about these ?
They seem expensive on this link but I’m sure there is a compatible alternative from other bikes that will do the same job, aftermarket pieces
RE: 1980 XS750 Build Thread
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.
[EDIT] : Here is a link to my dropbox folder in which you will find important stuff : https://www.dropbox.com/sh/fmt80mi77ypj38v/AABw3HOLFX8ubkjvUGUHzgM4a?dl=0
By the time I’m writing you will find :
- Electric wiring colorized from the service manual
- Electric wiring colorized from the RMT36 (Revue Moto Technique n°36, a french magazine I think, pretty good information if you speak the language, I can help translate if you want)
- The service manual
- The RMT36
- Assembly Manual
Some of these documents I found on this website : www.xs850.minek.com which also is a pretty useful website
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.
