    does anyone have a picture of how the cam chain idler assembly sits in the top engine case half on a XS2? It keeps getting in the way of the tensioner. I think it’s backwards or upside down or something. Thanks.

    I think it will only go in one way.

    Thanks GLJ but I need a internal motor pic of the idler or rear guide stopper in the middle of the motor in the upper cases.

    Yes it is a XS2. As far as I know first time apart. I bought it in 1976.

    You guys are so great! Best thing I ever did was join this site. Well.... almost. But I’ve learned more about the XS in just a few days than I ever knew about these old bikes. Thanks again!
