Hey everyone
« on: October 27, 2012, 10:16:06 PM »
Hey fellow XS500 owners, Sonny here from New Zealand, I have a 1978 Yamaha XS500e.

Very new to bikes, learning as I go.

Got the bike (not running, in parts) for a few hundred dollars about a year ago, according to the seller he had it sitting in storage for about 12 years. I have spent most of my time so far just rebuilding the engine, re-honing, new rings etc and fixing/replacing all the broken parts. Looks like it went down on the right side and never rode again.

Uploaded a video today of the bike running for the first time since I've owned it:
