    I have a post that I would like to edit because of a diagram being inaccurate, and I would hate for someone to get bad information. Would it be possible for you as an Admin to remove the image?

    Hi,
    Bleeding 1981 Seca 750 front brakes( all rebuilt). No pressure at lever. I started reverse bleed, right site AD, RCaliper, left side AD, Lcaliper. Noted air leak at threads on one nipple. Add teflon wrap? (Heard mixed reviews) Refilling resevoir filler hole to replenish fluid. Do i also have to loosen the top of the MC pipe fitting to get air out of this " highest" position?
    Thanks

      I noticed that I had air in the top fitting on my Seca,. It's messy to bleed from there, and easy to strip the nut, but I couldn't figure out any way to get air out of that location.

      Air getting past the bleed nipples isn't a problem when the screws are closed, but can be an issue when vacuum bleeding. Just make sure teflon isn't on the part of the bleed nipple that seats.

    Would you happen to know where I can locate a 1982 xj650j Maxim frame, rolling chassis or (cheap) basket case bike with WA title?

    I’m near Everett, WA.

    Thanks!

    Afternoon hogfiddles,
    Like many before, I'm resurrecting an '82 550 seca, and am in need of a handful of shims. From my readings, it seems you are one of a few that might still run a shim pool, so I am curious if I can purchase these from you. Five in total: 260(x1), 265(x2), 275(x2)

    Goodmorning sir, new to the site as of about 15 minutes ago; and new to the xj550 I've got as it was handed down to me last night by my uncle! It's my understanding you're the best out there for carb cleanings?

    How do I change my user name? Didn’t realize when it asked for my name it meant user name. Ugh.

    Hello, new member here. This is a cool and very helpful sight. I need 3 shims for my 82 xj non X. I need two 275's and one 245. I understand you run a shim pool. Any chance you can help me. If so how do you run your pool? Thanks.
