The other XS Triple Sidecar - adjusting the carbs

... and finally getting the old girl ready for sale.

Funnily enough the stock mainjets on a XS750 with Mikuni Mk.1 carbs are #145s, which turned out to be too large to be used with pods and I had to swap them out to #135s. But now the old girls runs like a champ and revs to the moon...

Can't beat a magic box with tons of jets. 

And it would have been rude, NOT to check the synchronization of the carbs. 

The somewhat sad part: With the old girl now fixed up properly, she's ready for a new home. So if you're in the market for a technically well sorted bike, give me a shout.
