    Hey y’all, I’ve never owned a bike and I’m buying my first one tomorrow. It’s a 1981 XS400. It was in the process of being restored 10+ years ago and never got finished. As far as I’m aware the engine has been completely rebuilt. The bike is painted. That’s pretty much all I know. I will update once I actually have the bike, but what things should I look for or work on to make sure it stays reliable? Thanks yall.

    to keep these bikes reliable, you must keep on top of maintenance. check the bike over when you clean it and before a ride.
