You could use a 550 seca TCI, curve will be probably be a bit different, but i think that’s about all Jan 25, 2020 at 10:08 PM

      Hi Rick, yes I do run a shim pool. When you know what sizes you need, get in touch with me via a conversation

      I am new to the forum and new to xj's
      Just doing some research before tackling a valve clearance job. I saw in an old post that you have a shim exchange pool, if you are still doing this please let me know how it works. I have not checked mine yet so I don't know what sizes I will need but I plan on tearing into it this weekend due to a rainy forecast.

      Spike....more than likely, one of the exhaust heat-shields is loose. When you hear it,touch with your toe and see if it stops.

      Dally I have an 82' XJ750 Maxim it will run then die suddenly and when it is restarted it backfires. I t will restart but wants to go through the same process again. ( It is also very cold natured in the morning startup. ) I would like it to just be able to run at an even idle. Around 1150 to 1200 rpm. What should I check first?

      Can you give me a ball park price to have the carbs cleaned and rebuilt on my 82 xj 750? I was told I should come to you.

      hey hogfiddles can you read my post about my turn signal and maybe give me some advice, the only info I don`t have is about the bulb that's in the new turn signals, I can`t get it out

        Hogfiddles I can tell by your replies and comments that you know your way around the bike world. I'm trying to get info
        on two things. How to find a bike shipper in any given town
        who will pick up a bike, prep it and submit it for shipment
        to a motor frieght company. The other is the most secure way of sending money to a seller guaranteeing that they are
        who they claim to be and that there is an actual motorcycle.

      With Pollock's help I made some room in my inbox so your message would come in !

      Hey Dave, I hope you're doing well. My Seca900 is still not running but I recently saw an ad about a '84 Seca 750 front fairing and I wonder if it would be a direct swap?

      Hi, Len said that you were the guy to talk to you about my carburetors. I have a 1983 seca. I have rebuilt the carburetors but I did not break them from the rack. I am slightly handicapped and it's getting to be a lot of work. I do have a vacuum leak shaft seals. What would you charge to replace them for me?

      go into the forum or marketplace heading that you want, then click on the "post new thread" button toward the upper right area

      robawf, we ALL lost our pics when we went to the new format. You'll have to reload what you can. We ALL had to.

      I DON'T......my wife will confirm that---much to her annoyance.
