    Clutch Case Leak

    Continuing questions guys. What's the trick to get the kickstarter seal fully seated (down to the small ridge inside the chamber)? Just pushing down on it with my thumbs don't seem to be doing the trick. I thought about getting a large drive socket on top of it and hammering down on it, but...

    I have really become disheartened and regret buying the 1970 XS650 I did on Ebay.

From what I can tell...

    Wanted - Rear Turn Signal Brackets

    Hello, Alex here from Los Angeles. Newbie to the site. I am soon to be the owner of a 1970 XS650. It doesn't have turn signals and I would like to add them. It looks like I can get everything I need at Mike's XS except the brackets that need to be added to attach the rear signals. I believe...
