I totally agree about the xs. Iíve seen them done so many different was, and I like them all. If and when I do change it, Iíll have to be in a good place with the right tools. I want to do it right the first time. Iíve never really dove into a project like that, so itís a bit intimidating. Also, Iíll need to wait on a clear vision of what I want. Iím kinda all over the place on it.

I do love the way the motor looks, and Iím very pleased with the simplicity. Also love the way it rides

I would suggest a front fender if you are serious about riding it much.

For sure. A bandanna works surprisingly well, but that front tire throws gravel and everything else.

If nothing else, I was to at least brace the forks. They are a bit sloppy

After the bike sat up for a week of bad weather, I started taking stuff apart. I couldnít resist. It has been smoking pretty bad out of the left cylinder.
I took the crank case vent filter off suspiciously, and the smoking quit. After taking it for a ride I lost the left cylinder.
Baffled by the time I got home, I pulled that spark plug and it was soaked in gas 🤷🏻‍♂️
Guess Iíll pull the carbs apart this weekend

Cam chain adjusted, valves within spec, carbs synced, and I installed a check valve on the crank breather. Smoking and oil leaks ceased. It was like freaking magic.

Now to change the oil again
