'79 XS750SF Restore Project

Recommended Posts

Starting a restore project on a 1979 XS750 Special. So far I've mostly cleaned  everything under the seat and tank. I removed carbs today and found a great deal of oil in right side of triple. That means I have a bad petcock on that side allowing too much fuel to enter and flood chamber bringing oil back to the carb. No problem since I plan on rebuilding them anyway. Should I rebuild carbs or can I get away with just cleaning them? Also ordering starter and flasher relays since I'm having electrical issues with lights and etc. Just installed a new battery cover/fuse box. The old one had been removed and was direct wired in the most horrific way imaginable. I figured it was because they bypassed bad relays. Any thoughts on these subjects greatly appreciated.

I decided to rebuild them. No since chancing it over $60. Also switching flasher and headlight relays to LED. I plan on riding late at night when there's less traffic here in the foothills of North Carolina. I want to be seen from all angles so I'm going to LED everything. Even thinking about LED's on my helmet. 😁
