Tanks are different. The US XS750 and XS850 Standards had the same 17 liter tanks. Europe and oceania, (and maybe some other countries), the XS750 stanf0dard tank is the 17 liter one but the XS850 got a larger 22 liter tank and the gas camp is mounted to one side of center where the US tanks gas cap is in the center of the Tank.

Skull, I still have the backpack, Everest Standard. My back carrier on the XS had a frame, sissy bar like, that allowed the pack to just slip on and stay there without having to tie it down. Great back support for my Dunedin to Christchurch trips and certainly held tons. I threw the pack frame away last year but kept the bag which straps nicely to the Virago back rest.

That's a nice blue XS850 tank... :hump:

Welcome aboard Slyman.
Nice Special.
You have arrived at the best place on the planet for all things xs650.
There is an incredible tech section that has about all the information you can possible need as well as a membership that includes a few that probably know more about these machines than those that built them.
Feel free to post an introduction if you like and tell us about yourself and your bikes.

last week a buddy of mine stopped by, we took my XS2s for a ride. He rode my survivor first. When we stopped and swapped bikes he thought the survivor ran and rode great. He rode my 750 XS2 back to my house. He said it was a beast compared to stock.

Thats pretty cool to be able to have a direct comparison of otherwise identical bikes! So which one do you enjoy riding the most? Hmmm?

took the bike for a spin today. the pipes are still pretty new. they are the delkevic 2 into 1. as the jetting is currently, it runs best with the baffle removed. too loud for my taste, but it runs pretty good and im not rejetting until it cools down here. the bars are also a recent addition. those are from my honda mini. they are kind of nice, but i just got some clipons and new fork caps off ebay. im gonna see how i like that positioning. im betting i wont lol.

the pipes are pretty sweet. i had to bend my brake pedal to clear the side exit placement though. it cooled down enough for me to bother with that today. i know the bike is pretty rough, but so far i really like it.
