    Howdy! Wanted to see if you could help. I just replaced the clutch plates on my 1982 xj650 and adjusted the clutch to where it should fully disengage but it seems to be slipping. I even loosened the clutch adjustment so there was a bit of slack and it was even lurching forward with the clutch in so I know it wasn't the adjustment of the cable or arm. Still slipping and not sure what to do. If you can help thank!!!

    Getting ready to do an engine removal, any tips and how should I do it

      remove any parts you are going to change or work on before you remove engine, alternator rotor, clutch basket. oil filter off before you remove motor. some pull it out onto a milk crate others lay bike down on side. mostly get some help to lift and turn it out

    Dave,I finally got the Carbs back on the bike and it is running much better now,i found one float that was intermittently leaking so i replaced all four needles and seats and wet sync the float levels more times then i can count.
    Thank you for your help.

    Okay...thank you for you input Dave. It will be a couple of months before i get the bike back together.

    Could be... and sediment indicates either bad filter, dirty or rusty tank—- which means if it’s in the bowls, it’s in the carbs too

    So i took apart the carbs and the only thin that stuck out so far after a primarily inspection is during draining of the float bowls i noticed that one carb had about 2.5 oz of fuel and the others had 1-1.5 oz and noticed some black stuff in the bottom of the bowls not a whole lot.Do you think the uneven balance in the bowls would be a factor for my issue ?

    Well you have to figure out if you’re bogging due to drowning, or starving

    Would they cause my symptoms of bogging off idle ?

    I can usually see it ..... the arent smooth anymore— they start to get a ‘velvety’ look, and then a ‘sandpapery’ look, then onto ‘bad’

    Dave,if the carb jets are etched ? you can't see that can you ? how can you tell ? doesn't that just make the mixture more rich ?
