    "Milled" area of the axle head engages the slots in the frame brackets, like all stock rigid axles. The only catch is, are your frame slots the right width for this axle kit?

    Well, those two are definitely not. Two different iterations of the ironhead case design.

    You need a case from '72 - '76 to mate with your good '73 case half.

    Yes, there is a difference. The shovel, evo, and XL filters are 20 micron, and the twink filters are 10 micron. That makes the twink filter more restrictive to flow, which is not a good thing for...

    '81 front forks have tapered tubes which socket into the top tree, and there is no height spec.

    The rear motor mount location is the same on the '81 as on the earlier motors. The change in mount location was in '82 as far as I know, so you are OK there.

    It could definitely be that HI-4, or the coil malfunctioning when warm.
    One other possibility is the valve to guide clearance set too tight, especially the exhaust valves. The '83 or '84 XLs had...

    The biggest problem with any of the aftermarket XL kicker parts is that the ratchet parts are so poorly made, and tend to "kick through" which will hyperextend your knee and leave you with a painful...

    It's small. I use one strand from stranded electrical wire to probe those holes, and small holes like intermediate jets. Solvent and air pressure will get it eventually.
