XS650.com T-Shirt Presale! (Presale ends Sunday April 30th, 2017 at 11pm CDT)
People have been asking about getting t-shirts made again so we're doing a run of them. The last time we did this was in 2011 and 2012. Daniel Peirce was nice enough to let us use his XS650 engine photo again. We are keeping things simple this time with only black short sleeve t-shirts. They are silk screen printed (7 screens) on Gildan Ultra Cotton shirts. A presale is being held to make sure everyone gets the size they want. The presale will go until 11pm CDT on Sunday April 30th. After the presale, only a few extra shirts will be ordered, so sizes will be extremely limited... To make sure you get the shirt(s) you want, order today!

XS650.com is now running on the Xenforo platform. There are many new features and some changes that will take a little getting used to. The biggest change is the responsive design which will make the site easier to use on a phone or tablet. The site also has much better security and should be less vulnerable to being hacked. The search is better, it handles picture much better, you can have attachments in private conversations, video embedding is easier, and the list goes on and on.
Sorry for the down time today. I've been at it all day and well into the morning hours. ...
