    I saw your writeup on the gauge swap. 2 questions how are the gauge bezels removed and ultimately the lens? P/O said they replaced the gaskets, looks like they pried the bezel all the way around. Is this the correct/only way to access the insides?
    Also, how is the silk screening on your indicator lights so nice? Most of my lettering is rubbed off. Is there a way to redo it?
    FWIW, I have an 82' xj650 seca.

    Hi. I would like to send you my 1982 clean but never 'rack-broken' Seca 750 carb for a complete overhaul. I would then drive to your place to pick it up. Please let me know if it's possible.
    Thank you.

    Hi SQL Looking for the ignition fuse on my 1986 XJ Maxim X All I can find is major fuse right off of Battery. I'm losing 2 volts from battery to either coil.
    1. hogfiddles
      Main fuse is by the battery, the rest are under the front cover of your gauges lights cover

    Hi Carl - new to the forum and looking for some help with a 82 XJ750 Seca. Do you still work on older bikes? If so let me know please. I'm over my head with bringing this bike back to life.
    Or if you have a recommendation of a shop I can take it to. I live in the Metro Detroit area. I really appreciate any guidance you can give. Thank you Motown

    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.
