      Hey Hogfiddles, do you still run the shim pool? I am going to be checking my valve clearances here soon and if any are out of spec I'd like to use that pool. Thanks!
      1. hogfiddles
        Yes, I do:)

      I thought I had a line on an exhaust collector for a 900 Seca. But the owner decided not to sell it. This leaves me desperately searching for a collector as the input connections have rotted away on mine. any help would be appreciated.

      Hey hogfiddles, I am an idiot and bough an XJ 550 Maxim tank for my SECA. Shes been sitting in the grage for a year or so and I've been slowly getting everything patched up on the bike (she was in a dire state) and I saw you posted about tank swaps. You mentioned I would need to either need an extension forward or the front mounting cups would need to be moved, how would I go about doing that?
      1. BuyersRemorse69
        I also have the old 550 tank. But gas was sitting in it for 20 years. The liner inside is shot and its just completely rotten. f***ed up all the carbs, fuel units, etc. Although no holes though. Maybe it would be easier to just attempt to clean out the old tank?

      Hogfiddles, I saw an old posting where you had mentioned a registry for the XJ900. I have an 83 RK, two actually but one needs considerable work. How would I go about accessing the registry? I’m down near Kingston, NY by the way. Thanks.

      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.

      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.

      @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
    13. Britmotohead
      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...
    14. fiduccian
      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.

      Ryan, consider looking for a 750 Maxim tank......it’s a bolt-on drop-in upgrade

      Hello, I was told by toomanybikes to check with you to see if you had a left hand, front turn signal lens for an '82 Yamaha Seca 650 Turbo. I'm new to the forum and don't know if I'm going about this in the right way, so excuse me if I am. Thank you very much and a very good 2021 to you and yours!---HHB

      Hello Dave,I still haven't started my bike yet to see how the last tear down on the carbs went yet but I'm close.
      I was wondering if you have had any issues with your Starter Chain Guides with your XJ 700s
