What's up guys!

I picked up a 93 XJ this weekend on trade for my Buell Blast. (Fun little commuter bike.) The XJ's a fun little sport bike!
I got mine non-running, and in a few hours had it idling. It's still got plenty of quirks, like a leaking exhaust manifold and a worn clutch. It needs carbs rebuilt and das boots replaced, probably needs a headgasket while I'm at it, and some slip on's and independent air filters, and increased jetting. (I've really gotta stop throwing money at things like this.)

I've also got a 1984 Honda Magna V30 that I'm working on, frames shot but I've got a CB750k frame sitting in the garage. I'm thinking Frankenstein bike...

I'm also a PC gamer, I'll include a list of usernames at the bottom. Hopefully I see some of y'all around!

Hello and welcome to the site! You'll find that the Seca II runs much better using the stock airbox & filter rather than individual filters. But anyhow welcome and glad to have you here. Got any picts yet?

Every single thing I've looked at has told me this, including dyno runs, so I'm just going to order the boots from my local dealership and be happy. No pictures yet, I still have to go get the rear and side fairing for it.
