    That file's getting updated in the future. After talking with Len, instead of doing a separate file for the Mikuni, it's going to be combined with the existing Hitachi dissection. No, it wasn't me that did this -- Len had somebody there locally chop the things up.

    Yeah, I know, but it's what I could find at the time.


    They are.

    Whoops. I meant to say "Whats wrong with continuing to use them from the XJ4ever site?"

    I was hoping that the chopped carb was a CAD drawing or factory replica, but if Len had that done, sheesh - all in the name of knowledge.

    UPDATE:

    As promised, the file showing the Hitachi internals has been mangled to pieces; it now includes the Mikuni as well (a BS28 from a 550, IIRC). Lots of spit and polish on this one. Even tried to get fancy with the title page. :mrgreen:

    Inside Your Carbs. Enjoy.

    Absolutely stunning work. Very well written, and definitely some great pics - those carbs definitely took one for the team.

    Is there any possibility of getting fitz's valve, brake, and clutch write-ups posted in pdf format as well? It would be nice to be able to pribnt them off and put them in a binder to be able to use while out in the garage.

    Thanks!

    mtnbike, Ya kinda need the Fitz's approval to do that, otherwise you are infringing on his copyright.

    UPDATE:

    Once again the mad genius at Hogfiddles Technical Consulting has graced the XJ world with the latest masterpiece to issue forth from the wellspring of his fertile imagination... okay, I'll stop now.

    Seriously, he wanted to do a writeup on repairing the gauges from the 700 series. Also applies to Viragos and a few others, and may apply to some 650s.

    Feast your eyes upon Repairing your 700 gauges. Enjoy.

    Good write up. It will also cover most of the XS series, as well as the 650 Seca.

    Been there, done that....a few times.

    Welcome to the forums 8)

    I'd be worried about that one staying on it's host seeing as it's the Haynes manual which is still in print and on sale today :?

    Still, whilst it's up there could be useful for people who haven't got a manual yet & I certainly won't be writing any letter to Mr. Haynes about it. (I'll consider my silence payback for confuddling my brain with his dodgy air jet labelling!) :lol:

    UPDATE:

    Chacal has informed me that he has, in stock, some parts for the gas cap that were previously unavailable. One of those is the infamous lock plug wafer spring -- yes, those tiny little buggers that you were warned not to lose.

    Both gas cap writeups (regularand twist-on) have been updated. Enjoy.
