    Great work on fixing the carb. That to me is what bike building is all about.

    Wanted - SEAT: from 1981 xs250 or xs400

    Hi mate, I have got a clean 81 seat and tail light. Tail light would look sweet recessed into the seat fairing. If u r serious, I will find out cost of shipping to Melbourne. I'll try and get a photo of them but I am moving house this week so might not be until next week. Posted via Mobile

    Westy's little tracker

    G'day Westy, That looks a pretty clean 250 - in much better condition than mine when i bought it. I have got parts from wemoto in the uk, gaskets and chain from Japan and bits and bobs from ebay Australia and USA. Good luck with the build and keep us updated on the progress. Cheers, PC

    Thanks again Chris. I checked the rotor and all good with the position of the dot - I just had it in the wrong position when I took the photo. I rotated the pickup to and it made kick starting much more pleasant with no kickbacks. So on to the next problem. With mixture set at 3.5 turns out...

    Restarted project again

    Calling ignition timing gurus - I need your help. Based on the first picture I think my timing has too much advance. Am I correct? The second picture is of the rotor position at LF. Should I rotate the ignition to the blue line so that it lines up with the rotor? Does the rotor...
