      Dear Barcus

      A collector box Is find on most lawn mowers


      But you might find one on eBay

  2. Thanks for sharing all your info. I recently used Motorsloop for the very same thing... thanks to you. I now have the right side engine casing on its way. Fedex no less. Terribly exciting......
  3. Cheers for that. That may be the only way to get the 4 into 2 rumbling again.... Do you know whether the XJ550 maxim or 700 have the same oem box as the 900f?
  4. Nice pics. Thanks for sharing.... My rear wheel back on... bloody stiff to turn.... what you reckon? Bearings? The oil defo needs changing... been stood 2 years.
  5. Thanks anyway. I have cobbled together an old 4 into 1 for now, but am loathed to sell on the silencers and downpipes just in case something turns up... Do you know whether the XJ550 750 boxes are the same as the OEM xj900f box (long shot, but who knows...?) Thanks for replying.
  6. Hi.. Any advice on where I can get a replacement collector box for my XJ900f 58L 1986 model? I have drawn blanks anywhere in the UK so far and it's driving me nuts. Not sure whether there are any other models' collector boxes which will fit... can anyone please advise / help me? Thanks.
  7. Hi. I have a Motad 4 into 1 for the XJ900f. but would prefer to use the standard downpipes and silencers I have. I am having real trouble finding a collector box though. Did you have any luck finding what you wanted? Can you offer any advice as to where I can get a collector box for a pre divvy xj900f? Cheers.
  8. Hi. I also have the same model. So tempted to take the engine out and clean up. mechanically it is sound. I have a real problem to find a collector box replacement... any ideas?

    Try Bridgestones. or Continentals.

    I have a Rentec rack for the XJ900f. I won't use it. Do you want it? I'm advertising it for £40

    Hi. I have had several XJ600 pre diversions. and now have an XJ900f 58L (1985). She's very tatty' but I've been spending a lot of time on her... Just replaced plugs and filter and new fuel in a slightly leky tank and guess what... she started second push of the button. I was amazed! Carbs were off and cleaned out and butterflies freed up and she fired up instantly. So now time to do the rest... My tank has been lined in the past and was full of floating skins of some deteriorated liner. So I was interested in your blurb about tank liners.... My main thing at the moment is the exhaust..
  12. Bought a 91J Yamaha XJ600 pre-diversion a few months ago. Sorted carbs brakes, coils replaced cables and so on and on and on..... bloody hell! Can't believe how much time I've put into it (and dosh). Anyway, running like a dream with new oil and plugs and air filter... ACE!! THen the shit hits again....... new battery is FLAT. AA man came and said he thinks it's the rectifier. £65 from local Yamaha dealer / £45 from Wemoto. First though. Are there any ways of testing the integrity of the current rectifier on the bike at the moment? as it would be a shame to buy a new part and find the same pro
  13. Sorry... Thanks for the pics. I just realised I replied to you, but in the wrong name. Yours has the original mirrors and indicators... both of which I prefer.. but mine has a rather longer screen which deflects the wind straight over me heed. I'll take her out for a spin before she leaves home. All the best.. Justin
  14. 30k miles... what's yours like? any pics to make me drool.?
