79 xs1100F $865 OBO

LOCATION: CENTRAL WASHINGTON

Well after much though on it I have decided that it is time for me to do other things in my life that require less of a learning curve. At this point the engine runs awesome but she won't shift. I have taken off both sides off and don't have the tools, space, or time necessary to dive into this in the way that I would like. I poked around and couldn't see any shavings or metal flakes in the oil at all. So I'm guessing that something just popped out of alignment or something on the clutch :S I was riding her home and pulled up to a stop light and put it in neutral. As I attempted to change it into 1st the foot peg went down and wouldn't come back up. The clutch acts as if it is still in neutral. I have a 90% full there parts bike (no title on that one) And a clean titled on the main bike. At this point I'm looking at get a little less then what I put into her so I can use it as a down payment on something the wife won't yell at me about spending more time with it then her and the kids. She has new carb boots, the full new kit done for the carbs, custom seat, converted to LED turn signals, the exhaust has all new gaskets, shimmed it, changed over to pods (still have the original airbox with filter). It has a brand new battery. I have the gasket and diaphragm repair kit for both petcocks but had not had a chance to put them on. She only has 20K miles and has a fresh oil change, with a new oil filter.

**Also throwing in the block I made for working on the carbs, and the stand for the lawnmower gas tank to be used for checking the float levels on the carbs. Also throwing in the 4 bank carb sync tool(paid $80)**

On the parts bike all of the motor is there, The transmission is there and has not been touched. It has the special style mufflers, and full uncut wiring harness. most of the electrical components, missing the main brain and the ignition coils. I have the sissy bar that came off of the bike. The parts bike does not have gauges. The second gas tank is already stripped and ready for you to do very very minor bondo and then painting.

I haven't thrown anything away that I took off of her so I have everything that came with. I wanted to put it up here for a couple days before I sold it local. I now that you good lads would appreciate it.

Might I get an admin to remove this thread for me?

I can't in good conscious let this lady go yet...especially since I stumbled through an ah ha moment and went and pulled apart the shifter side of the bike...saw how it was supposed to work...then fix the old lady...for now I will give up a gun instead for the down payment and keep the old lady and the new

Hi nzemke,
Glad to hear you have decided to keep your XS.. Some set backs can be very disheartening. I have known my own problems too.
Keep the faith.
Phil
