Cleaning the Hitachi Carb

Submitted by xjcdadmin on Wed, 12/19/2012 - 22:45

This series assumes you took the carbs apart, and are trying to figure out how to put them back together again. If you haven’t taken them apart yet, it’s a good idea to skim through this first anyway. Address any questions to: xj-owners@micapeak.com, and we’ll try to talk you through it.

Diode block

1. Remove the headlight, and remove the diode block from the wiring harness.

2. Check each diode and resistor in the diode block. If any diode in the resistor is not within specification, replace the diode block.

Sidestand Relay and Switch

Sidestand relay operation

The sidestand relay operates by shorting the TCI control current. When the sidestand is down, the sidestand relay is closed, and the TCI control current is grounded through the sidestand relay. Thus, the engine will not run with the sidestand down unless the transmission is in neutral.
