Good advice thanks guys!
Do any of you guys know the oil amount of the deeper oil pan (no oil cooler)?

I have tried to research that, but found no actual answers. Mine takes 4,5l oil before it reaches the oil stick. More than my cars!
Good advice thanks guys!

Bottom of the inspection glass, is somewhere around 3 to 3.5L. And you should fit an oil-cooler or drive faster.  ;)
(Just kidding, it makes a huge difference in Summer and both the coolers are and the adapter are easy enough to get overhere.)

I'll know after the next oil-change definitely had filled up too much this time.

Wow. Now i had a satori here.. i had lower rear shocks last time i changed oil, so the engine was tilting slightly upwards - and the oil stick is in  front end of the sump. So my oil would have gathered in the back of the sump, meaning i  overfilled quite a lot. No harm done though, would only lube the gearbox a bit extra.

Long time no hear guys...the XS is on the go and running every day!

IŽm so happy with this bike with all its flaws...I love the big bike feeling and the comfortable rides with my wifey  8) 8) 8)
Still a few things to do after:

Thing I have done in winter (besides restoring my workshop in the basement):

-Front wheel bearing-->completely shot
-New tire front

-Rear tire new
-Blasted and repainted the rear wheel-->completely shot paint

-Front brake serviced
-Pads chamfered

-Oil and oil filter change
-Carbs synched
-Ingition adjusted with flash light

She rides very well...but I need to do:

-New primary chain--->the old one is slack
-Retension the cam chain

Cheers guys!

So here we go...

Finally I but the bullet and bought a new primary and can chain.
Replacing the primary was a piece of cake... I did this so many times when I had my clutch problems....
The chain was already hitting all the insides of the engine cases and making the ride pretty slippery....

Next up will be changing the cam chain and checking if the camchain guides are in good condition are badly worn.
Do you guys have advice on how to go about changing the cam chain?
How do I check that the cam timing is right after I installed the chain?

Thanks

Just hook the new chain onto the old and pull it through, then check that the timing mark for tdc lines up with the cam marks. Do not rotate the engine unless marks are aligned, do not rotate engine with camchain off.

... and the marks on the cams can only be seen from the top, which is the weirdest bit of the whole job. Before rivetting make sure that the left side is tensioned and the right side is loose.
