    1o minutes to remove ign.sw. 10 min. clean, 10 min. reassembly.
    on another note, when I was done, headlight didn't work, traced it down [with meter] too the h4 bulb desiding to go bad at this particular time.
    $8 at nappa, - back on the road.

    30 mile ride. I try to get at least one ride a week of +20 miles so I don't have to winterize the bike. Was a little chilly near the end but wonderfully sunny today!

    Currently soaking my 700’s fuel tank with evapo-rust. Cleaned the carbs and the fuel rail was plugged full of rust.
    (PO used a different tank on the bike, but I’m not taking any chances. The filter on the petcock “straw” looks intact, but I had already bought the cleaner so why not).
    Hoping this is the reason the bike died on him and it’s an easy fix. Waiting on carb bowl gaskets to arrive and then we’ll see where I’m at.

    You might want to install a inline fuel filter also.
    I use the brass stone type .($8)
    the 90deg. one gave me a cleaner petcock to fuel rail route . [on a 700]

    I shall. I didn't have any Dielectric Grease at the time. tomorrow I'm going to parts store for sp.plugs and oil filter. I'll pick up D. grease. then.
    It's so incredibly easy to go back and do, it's a no brainer.

    I’ve got a new inline filter to install when it all goes back together. Thanks for the tip!

    Windy, cloudy, and an early sunset this time of year. But, at 45F in Minneapolis, I had to de-winterize the XJ and get in one last ride to work. I'll re-winterize it when I'm done shoveling Tuesday evening.

    Haha. This could come close to qualifying for the worst rack of the year award I think. From the 750 I snagged the other day. Here we go. Slowly

    Yes those carbs are beat up...the tops look like they could go at anytime. I loved my X to work on good challenge. I didn't like the riding position. I really wanted to keep her after all the work I put into her, but just found my self jumping on the Seca all the time. I wonder why they never put that X engine into the Seca?

    Great haul and you always seem to find good deals/bikes. You are in a more populated area than I am though. I still try to keep up...You are winning! :)
