So I'm an American living in Slovakia Never had an older bike, and I've only owned one bike previously haha. I'll be learning how to do this all on my own, and with your help I have a 1979 Lada 2101 that I've also been learning to work on myself. I had a Yamaha R6, but have always been out to make a cafe racer style, maybe not the "true" meaning of that but something along those lines. Just recently I was able to find a decent deal it seems on a Yamaha XJ500. It's been hard to find any info on the bike considering the XJ500 I guess wasn't everywhere and I can't find if it has same carb and stuff as the 550 or not and so on. So i'll be searching for that info It starts with spray, and then will start right back up, but the guy said he thinks the carb just needs cleaned up. Here are some pics of it. I have a video as well but not sure how to post that. So I'll probably be asking a lot of questions and for resources about it, since like I said I'm having a hard time finding info to be able to order parts. Specifically carburetor parts.
