      Xj750 Seca doesn't have fuel mapping. Sensor error is either a bad wire, or bad sending unit in the tank

        thank you i wasn't sure i had to swap the tank because mine had a leak and assumed it be a straight swap but its just not running well at all. the fuel gage dosnt work with the new tank is that part of the problem? or is it a different part of the tank that is messing up? before i put the other tank on it was running perfectly. thank you for the help im a bit out of my depth here and have no where to turn.

      Hi Dave. I haven't been on the xj site for a while. I happened to look at one of my old posts and saw that you were trying to ask me about some old fairing lowers. If you are still interested I may still have them in a box. I can take a look if need be. Let me know. Joe

      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?
