    unknown Wheel identification

    Hello, Bit of a newbie question but I recently bought an 1975 XS650B and subsequently discovered that the forks that were installed on the bike were XS400 forks, and totally don't fit the bike (the stem is too short). Because of this I've gone ahead and bought 34MM forks from a fellow forum...

    Sprocket Gearing

    Ok, so I’m working out the details on some sprocket gearing to potentially run a jackshaft with a wide tire build. On my current bike, I have a 17 tooth front sprocket and a 31 tooth rear overdrive sprocket. The gearing ratio of that combination is 1.82. I would like the bike I’m building to...

    Stella - 1977D survivor, back on the road.

    I've been having a great time over the last two weeks as I become further acquainted with my 77D, mostly stock, Stella. After the first basic safety checks and oil change, etc. I put her quickly into her role as my daily ride. Most days are 5-10mi, but the last week has given me a few longer...

    Pictures of rd400 sprocket spacer for xs650?

    Hey folks. I have a 1976 xs650 with an rd400 rear end. I understand it is possible to make a spacer to compensate for the sprocket offset. Curious if anyone has an actual photo of this spacer in action? Thanks! -T

    I moved a whole whopping 10 feet when...

    I got the "honey do's" done for the evening and the kids in bed. There was no rain in the immediate forecast so I thought it would be a great night to take a little jaunt around town and show my bike some love. Pulling out of my driveway and onto the street, the bike make an abrupt halt and...

    Sprocket question for xs650 running a cb750 18 rear.

    Well the title says most of it. I was curious as to what my options were for running a 33t sprocket on a cb750 18 rear drum wheel. I have a 17t front sprocket and looking for a 33 for my rear wheel but can't find anything that seems like it'll work. I'm pretty sure its the cb750 k7 wheel, it...

    Replaced seals, chain scraping sound from left case

    Hi guys, So I successfully (I think) replaced the seals on the clutch push rod and the drive sprocket. I put the sprocket back on, then the plate washer, then tightened the nut. No oil leaks, but there is a sound coming from the left case that sounds like the chain either scraping, or...

    - this looks interesting...pity the XS doesnt really like sprockets large enough to make this worth the effort...chain lubrication will be interesting - edart brakes - 3 Guyz 530 and 630 chain - exile cycles - eurocomponents
