My 1991 XJ600

Recommended Posts

Bought as a bike which wouldn't start in the wet, with no MOT in Nov 2014 - it's taken me almost exactly a year to work through the things that needed sorting - these included a fuel system clogged with jellied ethanol, a suspect TCI box (replaced with Ignitech unit), carbs that needed a thorough overhaul, exhaust fitting and stud problems, and a dragging clutch.

You could eat your dinner off these now!

Nice job mate, you must be well chuffed. These old bikes deserve to be looked after and they are fun  to ride.

Their English is way better than my Czech,

Bought their ignition SPARKER TCIP4 - standard - plugs made for XJ600 1991 - including USB serial comms 9pin port and serial to USB adapter

It came to EUR 174, which at the time worked out to around GBP 130

True plug and play - and great service from ignitech

Give them my best regards if you talk to them!

I can't quite strip and rebuild them blindfolded -  but it's close.  And I even know where both the detent balls, and their teeny weeny springs go - (apart from under the fridge, that is)!
