    An XLCH is a kick start only model, available through '79. However it looks today, if it is indeed an XLCH model, the serial number code will verify. If so, it may have had the electric start added,...

    If you adjust the release mechanism screw too tight, the clutch will work, but you will burn up the discs in a few days, or maybe weeks. And then the only fix is new plates (again) and maybe a set...

    Yes, leaning the intermediate should help the fat transition. That will help your fuel mileage. But, a rather lean intermediate on a carb with no accelerator pump may give you an off-idle flat spot...

    Yes, you can put all of that together. You will have to machine the case decks and align lap the pinion race. In my opinion, you should use the -40 pinion race and the late forties/early fifties...

    "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?

    One or the other will probably be the one. You will have to tune a little. You really need to get the main right before you start changing the air bleed, provided that you can run past the midrange...

    One of the three balls may be out of position. With the cover off, and the adjusting screw locknut removed, you can remove the retaining ring and disassemble the release mechanism. Be sure it's not...

    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.

    Be prepared to deck and possibly...

    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.

    Methinks you are dealing with a later fork, with pinch bolts on the top tree? If so, on a standard...

    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...

    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.
