  1. I bought Bike magazine in the 70's and loved Ogri and Malc. My poster bike was the bennelli 750 6 cyl and a CZ 175 (no idea why) Had the leather jacket biker less thing going and got given a cd175 in bits when I was about 15. learned a lot on that bike and even got it running after a fashion. I never got it on the road and my only regret was it had a twin leading drum brake off a gt750, like gold dust now. Left that behind when I moved to Devon. Devon was where I got a KH125 with the engine in bits. Managed to repair it and passed my part 1 off road on it over in Bridgewa

    XVS650 CDI

    not keen on gel batteries with older charging systems, AGM batteries seem to be better to take the voltage spikes. If it just misfiring then hopefully the CDI is ok. I would test the rectifier and stator along with a decent brand battery like yuasa

  8. Snakebite, was my tipple in my teens along with red eye= Pernod, black and cider. can 't remember much after that
  9. do you frequent the carousel at Southport wednesdays? I miss the Wray bike nights too, those xs650 are great lots of support from Mike XS in the states and the Dutch sites.
  10. looks like an EGR (exhaust gas recirculation) system a pain in cars too. I took mine out and put an electronic gubbins in to fool the engine it was still there. only there to pass the euro 4/5 regs on emissions. put some exhaust wrap on and should be fine.
  11. we've all been there. I spent 6 months tracking an ignition fault, tested within parameters but 1 wire failed under load. there's a long thread in the site somewhere.
