    From 1964 until 1982, my father was a Yamaha Franchised Dealer in East Texas.
    I remember that he became a dealer the same year (1964) that the infamous YDS3, 246cc 2-stroke with the "Yama-Lube" oil injection system was first offered .
    In November 1971, my father and I traveled to the Buena Park, CA, which at that time was the Yamaha International Coorporation Headquarters location, and picked up one of the first 1972 XS2 650's to arrive stateside. The Vin is # 100214, which is year production bike number 113. I still have this 1972 XS2 (and the Compression Release Starter Still Works).

    My XS-1B cost me $1150.00 new and in the crate. I did the assembly and set up that same evening at Vick's Motor Mart in Hendersonville Tennessee. That was in June 1971. Best running 650 I ever saw. I was lead tech and Service
    Manager.

    Does the right exhaust valve adjustment cover have 3 fasteners or 4. If it has 4 it's a 72

    I'm in search of a complete, running or not running XS-1 or 2.
     
  10. I sold a XS1 to a guy in Australia that was a daily rider not mint by know means just looked good for $4400. I think I would pay $4500 for one that was mint condition.
