    I recently purchased two XS650'S a 1973 and a 1980. The 73 motor has a hughes handbuilt partially installed. Could i switch it out to the 80 motor? The 80 motor is in the hardtail. 20201119_130642.jpg 20201130_181914.jpg 20201130_181904.jpg 20201114_182917.jpg 20201119_130642.jpg 20201130_181914.jpg

    Welcome to the forum.If you're referring to the PMA, yes you could swap it, but the 80 motor uses a crank fired ignition. You'd have to replace that also.
