Default Custom 74 TX650 build log.

I put this page together to document the steps in building the 74 TX650. With the exception of chrome work, upholstery and rebore, everything was done in my workshop. It's a public page, so no need to join.

Fuck Facebook, wants me to join.

Your faceshit public page is not so public, Tony.

You have to have a Facebook account to see anything on facebook. Some groups are private which only members can access, others, like mine, are public, so, anyone with a facebook account can see it.
Facebook is like a club, if you're not a member you can't enter.

You can't see anything on Facebook unless you join. Once you have joined fb, there are numerous groups, dozens devoted to machining, dozens devoted to welding, dozens devoted to any subject you care to mention.

If you do join and decide you don't like it, simply close down your account and leave. FB will not not hunt you down, gun in hand, and force you to stay.

However, these groups are either public groups or private groups, within fb: Public groups can be viewed by anyone who is a member of FB, private groups can only be viewed by fb members who have joined that particular group.

There are also secret groups, but I won't go into that for fear of confusing you.

Whilst it may seem complex, it is not, FB is the simplest and easiest social media group to navigate on the web. With 3 billion users it is also by far the largest. There is no limit on number of picture uploads, no limit on character texting, so much better than non fb platforms. However, they do have ridiculous community standard: Abbreviation for Japanese is not allowed, threatening someone is not permitted and so on, so in essence - you do have to control yourself.

There are probably two dozen groups devoted to the Yamaha XS650 on FB. Other motorcycle brands and model have similar numbers of groups, as do welding, machining, recipes, bushwalking, firearm, and subject you care to name.

No relationship with FB, I have a love/hate relationship with FB, I just find it the simplest, quickest, easiest and most comprehensive social media platform on the Web. I get banned for a week or so every now and again for not behaving myself, mostly for abbreviating 'Japanese'. That is a big no no!

Tony, Tony, Tony...

Can't you tell when you're being played? I mean no malice, just yankin' your chain.

Respectfully,
Bill

By the way, I do enjoy your builds. You have the craftsman mentality that shows in your work.

Do you mean the term "jap"? I think you can say that here...

BTW, are you using JAP as a verb or noun?

Why bother to post on one website to go look at stuff at another website? If you want to be lazy, just post there and not here.

I know how to search if I need to find something...

Oh, that's easy, I did it just to annoy you! Looks like it worked real well - success. But hang around, I'll see how else I can annoy you...

Some single use thingies: A cam chain holder to stop the chain dropping into the sump all the time. Better than string or wire because the motor will turn over.

A TDC finder. Made of an old plug which I threaded M10 internally, screwe a bolt in place, drilled and tapped that and screwed in a long M6 bolt.

The degree wheel is held in place by three rare earth magnets, it has marking for TDC and other markings 5 degrees apart up to 40 degrees. The short piece of tube, fits in the central hole and is a tight fit around the socket for centering. Once centred, it's removed to give the socket a little wriggle room.
