This cafe racer style xs650 is a fun bike to ride on twisty roads, just took it up to the top of Cotton Wood Pass west of Buena Vista, CO. Kids following me said it was as fast as they wanted to go around 15 mph hairpins. It’s a little loud beacause of the Dunstall Wide O mufflers and it leaned out a bit over 10,000 ft, but that should be easy to tune by analyzing the jettting according to Mikuni’s tuning and parts book that comes with it. The foot pegs allow plenty of clearance on corners and are surprisingly comfortable as are the Euro handle bars. The front brake is excellent, but the back does not do as good a job, something I did not thoroughly address although I installed high performance brake shoes. The Avon Road Rider Tires are a little older, but are low mileage and seem to hold the road very well. One turn signal does not work and I have not had the time to run down the problem.    The following is a list of parts and mods that are on the bike or come with it. The buyer must take ALL the parts at pick up.   Custom paint and decals on stock tank and side covers. Tank was weld filled in place of Yamaha badge.   Seat was a BMW item, but clips into the stock mounts. The upholstery is usable just not great.   Turn signals are from Mikes’ XS   Tail light is a copy of Lucas from the 60’s / 70’s   Headlight has new internals with a halogen bulb and visor   Wheels were built by Woodys’ Wheel Works in Denver on older hubs replacing the cast wheels with Akront style rims   Brembo front disc brake and new rear shoes from 650 Central   Rear shocks are 2″ over length recommended by Michael Morse (650 Central), forks Have Gold Valve Emulators in them   Steering head has tapered roller bearings and swing arm has bronze bushings installed   Streering stabilizer    Engine has; Mikuni round slide carbs, UNI air filters, XS Performance headers, exhaust port optimizers, Dunstall Wide O mufflers,             Boyer electronic ignition, and low mileage filters and oil. No other mods have been done to the engine.   Three extra swing arms; one stock for disc brake, one Yamaha Radian, and an aluminum one from Moto Lana originally to fit                      the SR500, but can be adapted to the XS650.    An un-assembled second engine goes with the bike as shown which includes a dirty, but good bottom end with new bearings and a           taller 5th gear, 180 degree crank assembly built and balanced by Crankworks in Arizona with Carillo rods and Wiseco pistons, barrels       bored and lined for a 750 cc engine, a Harry Lilly computer mapped head with valves installled,  flat track cam from 650 Central, high         volume oil pump, new cam chain, gasket kit, titanium vale spring retainers and a box of most of the small parts that will be required to      complete the assembly. A engine stand is also included as are some miscellaneous stock parts that have to go with as we are                 moving.
