  1. I've got a '77 XS 750 and they can be problematic at best, but they are a cool bike and fun to ride, Let your friend know that parts are available around the web. The first thing I would do if its not already done is convert the ignition to CDI. Let me know if you need any info. Paul
  2. Sorry it took so long to get back to you, my computer was all messed up. The conersion is easy, I bought all the parts needed on ebay. You will need a spark box, ignion advance plate, pick up coil, some wire, staycon spade conectors, and a timing light. You will need to make one harness going from the spark box to the ignition coils. Let me know when your ready and I'll send you some pics on locations and wiring possitions.
  3. All very cool but a few to many wheels imo!
  4. My '77 XS750 has it under the right side cover behind the engine, but acording to my service manual yours should be under the battery box on the left side beside your rectifier/regulator.
  5. I figured it out! I had everthing mirror image. I have now timed it and its running better than ever. If anyone else has an XS with pionts I would strongly recomend converting to cdi. If you need help let me know and I'd be glad to post a step by step of mine including pics.
  6. Hi I'm in the middle of converting my'77 XS 750 from points to cdi but I need a diagram of the actual wire possitions on the ignitor box as I don't have a doner bike with the right harness. If anyone has a pic of one on a bike with wich cylinder goes where that would be great! Thanks Paully K.
