    I have 6 sets of carbs to clean/rebuild and the four other bikes that need some bits done to them. There is always things to do:laugh:

    good plan... if you run out of things, i can supply my address...I have two bikes and a messy garage that could use some OCD treatment!:D
     
  4. Wow! I'm impressed and inspired by the quality and speed that you did this work. And thanks for sharing your knowledge and experience with us newbies.

    Added a set of 76 xs360 gauges to it. I even set the odometer on the speedo to the correct miles as the original. It was my wife's idea to have the color match the green of the bike. I forgot that the housings off the later bikes are not the same as the earlier one so I had to got with black ones :( With all the sets of gauges I have I only had one pre-80 chrome bucket for a speedo and none for the tach.:banghead:

    Found this thread today and thought I would update it. I have been putting it back to stock over the last two years. I have only put about 6k miles (20k total) on it as I have so many other xs400 bikes to ride. Finding the correct parts can be hard but I will get there. I even found a factory brochure with a pic of the bike new which will help in identifying parts/looks.

  9. Very nice. When I finish my 81, I'll be looking for another project to restore.

    Added a factory rack and back rest. Still has a bit of the yamaha sticker on it. Not bad shape for the age but these are hard to find. I will see how I like riding with it this summer.

    It took me 3 yrs to find a set. One year only color for carbs and hardware setup. I kick myself for selling the ones that came with it.
