Just cant win can you. I think this is a awsome step forward for the Vinduro comunity. VERI are running the meet and have decided its pre88...simple as that. (Im down with pre 95) but its not about just me. Get a pre88 bike and join in the fun or you can always run your own event.

wheres the like button when you need it  :P

there was a dellorto kit for the later XL250 bitd,i'm struggling with a XL350 atm, a keyster kit improved it slightly,was very overly rich, needle jet nozzles prob flogged out,the new needle halved it noticeably,i've fitted dellortos to SR500's,good results there,but cant help you with jetting (yet lol),suck it & see??, :P

yes Curtis,Jim & I cogitated over the motor's "viable attributes",& going on the description provided, thought & concluded ok should be a good thing,save us some work/beer coupons as it's already been done (& "fresh") was the thinking,& it was on our forum posted by a forum member ,job done!, it's basically scap,i havn't bothered looking in the bottom,as with most early XL's it's allways the top end that suffers mostly,& this had been addressed,ie slipper bearing,reground cam yadayada,just basically pissed off with the large waste of money,& time ,we cant allways get hands on,you tend to take the sellers word for it,which sadly in this case equals a pinch of cockie shit!

projected plugs are dual purpose,(old wives story??)all early aircooled Vdubs used them,hot when chugging along,but up the pace & incoming cool intake calmed things done heatwise, likewise early Yamaha 2 valve motors SR/XV seemed to like them too,BP7ES std fitment, KLG FE65P my fav in my velo around town,but FE100s for interstate pub crawls BITD,so to original question, BP7ES would sorta even out to B8ES,(by now everyone refers to their plug charts to tell me i'm wrong, lol),cheers

well,for a grand,(+ $250 freight) you wouldn't expect the piston to be seized f & R,+25 hi comp STD bore piston,but non seized +50 rings fitted??,old gaskets refitted (stuffed),the "heads linebored" FFS,(when it seized!!),all cam surfaces totally rewelded,even has oil retention "cavities" ,2 brass bearings on original heads centre camshaft journals,but upper rocker cover just replaced with another worn one,CDI "attempted" ,because flogged out head/cams not going to support meaningfull points activation,maybe all that work was done 35yrs ago,but this motor was just flogged into the ground since!!,maybe the recent seller was unaware of motors current condition,but zip on returning phonecalls says otherwise,just saying
