Great looking rig. How does it handle?

I am going to build a sidecar for my next project. Does the XS have enough power to pull around the extra weight? This would be a setup to use locally, Take the kids to school, Grocery store and such. It doesnt need to be a great touring rig, I have other bikes for long hauls.

If it seems a bit doggy you can put a larger rear sprocket on. A 35 or 36 tooth. I don't think you will need to.


The only way you can find out if you can do something is to try.
75 XS650B with a few mods, Dual disc brakes up front, Disc on rear, Pamcopete Ignition with the green coil, Radio Shack rectifier and Chrysler regulator, LED tail/brake and turnsignals. 750 kit,1.5 headepipes, Emgo shorty mufflers.
