Hello there, I'm Chris. I'm 22 years old from Lima Ohio and just purchased my first bike, a naked 97 xj600 with 20k miles in pretty good condition for $1700. Been riding for about a week now and I love it but it has its issues. When I got it the valve stems leaked and it idles a little rough. Valve stems were a pretty easy fix and I think I have the idle narrowed down to leaking carb boots which came in the mail yesterday and of course, a good carb sync. I'll post pics soon (chevereto won't take pics from my phone for some reason) but it looks a lot like radare's black and red xj :thumbsup: another issue was that only one of the cheap turn signals still worked so I have some new LEDs in the mail soon.

A question I have is, there is no guages on this bike. All I really want is a small Speedo. The factory cable still works and is tied to the handle bars, does anyone make a small digital Speedo that can run off of this cable?
