XS1100 Wiring Before and After
I dragged two old Yamaha XS1100s out of the woods from behind a house in the sticks. They were on the side of a muddy slope and literally out in the woods leaning on some trees. The brakes were completely locked up. Fortunately the owner had a bobcat with a bucket on the front. We used a couple straps wrapped around the headstock to carefully life them up and drive them through the bushes. However, getting them loaded into the enclosed trailer proved to be a monumental challenge. These old XS1100's are a lot of things, but light they are not.
This 1979 XS1100 got chopped up a bit and bobbed out slightly.
