Hey all you X8 guys.
Picked a 4 stroke up at a garage sale and need some help with it. A kid owned it and it's been apart and back together more than a couple of times. Parts are missing and I don't think I can get them aftermarket. I need a couple of pictures and a couple of leads.
First off, the wiring is a mess, a real rats nest. After removing about 10 lbs. of electrical tape, there is a bunch of the harness that has no apparent home. I could use a pic with the tank cover off so I can see where all this is supposed to hang.
Second, the rear bracket that hangs the gas tank and also, I assume, mounts the coil, solenoid and other stuff is missing. I can fabricate one if I had a decent picture of it.
Third, The body work is beat up. Most of the mounting tabs are broken off and I am thinking about making it a naked bike of sorts, as in no lower fairing, but I could use a new tank cover and seat / tailpiece. I have been looking around on the net and have seen a couple of one piece units. Anybody know which fits and which doesn't for an X8?
Thanks everybody for the time and effort,
Rick

Heres 3 schematics I made to simplify the chinese spaghetti............

just cut out the coordinating plugs for the CDI,,rectifier and solenoid and make your own harness..its the best way............

A few rolls of 14 ga primary wire in red black green ,,blue and maybe yellow will help alot.............Good Luck

so far over the years these schematics must be posted in about 6 dozen threads.................LOL

X6 or X8 seat panel and tank cover will work. Seat can be off almost any bike as long as you dont mind making mounts and trimming it. Wouldn't try to switch out the tank cover, if you need to then maybe x1 or x2, wont be easy.


The parts you have are valuable, even beat up a little. You may want to post them for sale here.

Thanks for the info Hugh.
The stuff I have has busted and missing mounting tabs. Holes in it from the rear tailpiece mount, ya know, it's been kidafied.
I could make a quick fiberglass mold of this stuff. Would it be worth it to make extra parts? I was dreaming of laying the first layer in carbon fiber and then doing the rest in regular glass. That would be spiffy, eh?
I'm getting carried away, aren't I. :D

Would be cool. You will probably have a lot of buy offers after doing it. Body parts for all the bikes are becoming insanely expensive.
