1981 xt500

Hello all, Dan from PA here. I found thumpertalk after looking for info on my latest addition. An '81 XT500. I have had the carb off at least 40 times trying to eliminate a nasty bog off the bottom and generally running like crap. The last time I had everything off, for shits n giggles I put a DT400 coil on it and now it starts and runs like it should.

here is some pics of it on my flikr


Nice: I love those coal shovel bash plates.
