New Bike Same Ol' Me (I think LOL)

PostAuthor: Baja_Joe » Mon Aug 12, 2019 5:10 pm

Ok so I dropped of the face of the earth a few years ago when I was here. I used to own a 1996 xv1100. I now own a 1990 xv535. when I get home I'll gladly upload some pictures. The issues my new bike has are pretty simple and shouldn't take long to repair.

This board doesn't allow hot-linking images, I believe. You have to upload it here, which you probably tried but hit the 'too large' error. I used Irfanview to reduce the size to 60% of the original.

Welcome back to the forums.


Thanks for the info and the welcome back. I shall upload here then, was trying to put a thumbnail in the post but it appears to have failed miserably.

What was initially wrong:
1. Fuel lines were dry-rotted. (replaced)
2. Fuel pump was hanging. (tested and remounted)
3. Reserve tank had no mounting hardware. (acquired and installed)
4. Front brake was non-op. (put fluid in master cylinder and bled, no leaks)
5. Carbs leaking fuel.
6. No battery.
7. Carb mounting boots cracked.

My TO DO list:
1. Rebuild the carbs
2. replace the mounting boots
3. Put in a battery
