Looking for motorcycle mechanic for hire
« on: 11/29/18 05:54PM »
Hi everyone!

I have a project bike sitting in my garage, '82 Yamaha XS650.

Can't figure out electrics, even with all online resources available, there's some fault in circuit that I cannot identify, even with brand new wiring harness. Definitely need help here if I want to get it running.

Do you know anyone experienced who could help me with that? I don't want to move bike just for that, so they will have to work from my garage. Will pay for this, ofc.

Contact SuperChicken - last I heard he was working as a remote mechanic (tools on a truck).

Superchicken was super un reliable before his shop shut down.

I recommend steering clear of this guy. But if you do see him, I'd like my rear set, Airbox bolts, and headlight bulb back. Oh, and if he'd like to replace the carb he dented, I'd appreciate it.

Yamaha had a run of bad electrics during that era.  Lots of bad stators on many models.  They're really easy to test, so I'd take a look at it.

Those bikes were bad-ass for their time!  I remember watching a friend do burnouts on his.

Ride on,

All Japanese bikes in general had bad electrics in that era I'd say, mainly due to the Shindengen shunt style regulators used and inadequate oiling of stators. Followed Honda right into the 2000s. Kawasaki too.
