    Thought I'd jump back on here and give an update. I was cleaning the X1 a while ago, and noticed that when the previous owner installed the forcewinder intake, they removed the intake bracket. So I...

    Here's how she sits for now. I've updated everything that needed to be fixed immediately, and she's back on the road. Needs a couple more small updates such as the oil pump gear and a new rear shock,...

    And I got bored, so I decided to polish up the headers a bit. Not bad 18 years of tarnish and an hours worth of work.

    It all installed easily and I opted for the 15% stronger diaphragm spring because I like a stiff clutch.

    I agree! This bike has really impressed me with the little riding I've done with it. Compared to my XB9SX, this bike has a "raw" and simple feel to it that makes it much more fun to ride.
