I getting ready to tear the XS apart for some much needed maintenance. I have a new Shinko 705 front tire on the way and I want to change the exhaust. Either a whole different system or at least some different mufflers. Its probably time for a chain/sprockets and the clutch was slipping a little last year as well.

Its time to come up with a different paint scheme as well. I have been looking thru the pics of desert racers and still not sure what to do. I have some black, silver,white and green on the shelf. Maybe after a few beers it will come to me.

Heres the before pic, I will post one after its back together:



I'm considering removing this bike from sidecar duty. Its been a lot of fun but I would like to mount the car to something with a little more HP for longer trips and keep the XS for dual sport riding.
