    Good morning. I was wondering if you or someone else had a right side cover for the 400 Seca that I could borrow for a pattern ? I have access to a 3d printer or am capable of making a fiberglass mold and building the part. I have ran in to many road blocks on this project. Is this something that you could help me with ? Thanks for your time.

    Saw the listings. I'm interested in the 650 wiring harness, throttle, throttle cable. If the 750 handlebar controls & rectifier are compatible with the 650... I'd be good for those too. Depending on the additional shipping cost, the headers for the 650 too.

    @hogfiddles, I saw you had some pairs of side panels for 82 xj750 maxim a couple years back. You wouldn't happen to still have any? Did the cardinal sin, lost the right side panel.

    Hello Hogfiddles. It was recommended to contact you about the rebuilding of my 1983 XJ650 carbs. I have them completely stripped down. I am across the border in southwestern Ontario vaguely close to Buffalo. Patrick

    Checking back in after a long hiatus. I put my 700 up on a table and now I need to get some carb parts from Len and get it back on the road.
    Hi There SnoSheriff, I seen you have a sale on 1981 Yamaha XJ550 Maxim Clutch Basket, do you have any more ? mine is 1983, pretty sure all the xj550's are all the same. I really only need bushings, but apparently they don't exist.

    Hey Ted are you still around ? I have a question about tour post using the Yamaha virago bar clamps on the stock 82 xj750 top triple tree plate. I wanted to know how it worked out for you? As I have been questioned by other members on the forum and being told that it will not work

    Hi I was wondering if you were still selling your rear to front wheel conversion kit? If so I'd be interested in purchasing one from you.

    Biggie-sorry to bug you - I have a 1981 X550 Seca -replaced shims according to factory specs and at 6000 rpm there is a clacking sound (sorry, can't describe any better), what am I missing? I really like this bike but this frustrates the living daylights out if me.
    Thank you for any guidance.

    I have 2 XJ900RK bikes. One restored and another in process. Do you want their numbers for your database?
    I restored the first one in 2007 and sold it after finally getting the prime circuit cleared out. I just bought it back and I am having a little trouble getting the carbs to idle down properly. They are really close, just not quite right...

    I have same bike. even same colour. my question is does your bike use the black rubber plugs over the top of the pilot jet hoes (found in the fuel bowls of the Mikuni carburetors.) Some people on YouTube say they should be used or the bike will run too rich. But I think only Suzuki XS100 etc use them.

    Rooster53, This is Mark Wyzgala and I've just posted a write-up of my 1982 Seca 750 Woes on the XJ technical Chat forum under "1982 Yamaha Seca 750 Loping Idle" Len Chacal told me to contact you and ask you to read the tale of woe and see if you have any ideas. Thanks Mark

    Hi hogfiddles, I was told you are very good at rebuilding carbs. Can you inbox me? I have an xj700x I am having an issue with getting them to work properly.
