A 14" bar is just about right for the Super 2. It's possible to buy a longer bar but it cuts down the power. I think I have a 20" bar that will fit on a Super 2, I think it came off a 240 or 245 Homelite saw but I never have put it on a saw.

No. The original Homelite 'XL' model was the XL-12. Totally different saw than what's been discussed in this thread. The '12' was a reference to the saw's claimed 12 pound dry weight (PHO).

Homelite has used 'XL' for several different (and unrelated) saw families over the decades. XL-12 series, XL-101 series, XL-1 (E-Z) series, XL-700/800/900 series, XL/XL2/Super2/etc series, etc. The numbers rarely had any relation to any aspect/characteristic of the saws....

I know this thread is old but it pertains to my situation so perfectly I couldn’t resist reviving it.

I have (I believe) the same saw as the OP and I am having trouble getting it to run.

I can get it to fire up on full joke and it will run for 30 seconds or so then die. I cleaned the entire carb and put on a fresh air filter.

After it dies I have to rechoke it and pull a half dozen times or so then it will fire again and run for 30 seconds or so.

The only thing I can think of is the fact that I don’t have a chain on it current so maybe there isn’t enough “load” on the motor?

Would you expect this saw to run normally without a chain on?

Here are some pics for giggles.
