This is my 81 xs650, which i purchased from a friend, he needed the money, and i was looking for a project. When he bought it, the bike was all flat black, and rust. It ran, kinda….. A mutual supposedly went through the carbs, and everything else, and it started running a little better.
At that point my buddy decided to repaint it, and after he finished, it wouldnt run anymore….. So it sat for a yr and a half. I offered him 500 for it and another 200 for an old kz440 he had laying around, the kz soon found a new home, and i decided to make something of the old xs.
After spending two months trying to rework the carbs, i finally got them close enough that it will run, and just need now to get them zeroed in. Let me know what you all think.
