    There's a Facebook group for XJs where parts are often offered by members and by the organiser of said group (a breaker / enthusiast in Germany ).

    Does anyone know of a UK source for Mikuni BS36 throttle shaft seals (on a 4BB2 1992 XJ900F)? Or, what other seals fit (fleabay lists BS34 seals from a land far, far away for an eye-watering price). Or, has anyone had any luck using washers/o-rings/other fixes?

    (Sorry, realised I should've posted this in the wanted section, which I've now done. Apologies for duplicate post)

    I've seen some post s here that suggest using doubled-up o rings as shaft seals. BUT are you sure they need doing?

    I don't see many XJ's in the Glasgow and surrounding areas either Mutley. I used to work in Keighley and made the trip once a month heading down the motorway and then on to Keighley via Skipton. There are more XJ's owners out there but I don't know if they are near you in Yorkshire.

    I own a 1980 XJ650 (UK), live in the North East (Teesside) area.

    Recently joined the VJMC, are there any other VJMC members out there.
