XS650 1970-'79

All Prices are listed at the bottom of the page

This XS650 was built as a tribute to the Pro Twins racers from the eighties and early nineties - it was a hotly contended Battle of the Twins style race series with many top riders competing, like Jamie James, Kevin Erion, Jimmy Adamo, Randy Renfrow, Doug Polen and Dale Quarterly.

 

 

We had this ratty XS650 to start with. We kept the frame and motor, everything else was discarded.

 

We chose FZ750 running gear for period components. The FZ750 front end was grafted onto the XS650 chassis and we found some nice vintage one piece aluminum clip-ons to complete the front end.

The wider rear wheel required a custom box swingarm, which replaced the spindly stock affair. The FZ750 calipers and slotted discs are a nice upgrade over the XS650 brakes.

To get the right look Airtech designer Kent Riches wanted a long road race style fuel tank and matching seat with large number plates. He opted for a half fairing to show off the motor and exhaust.

Kent sectioned a TZ250 fuel tank making it wider and longer to fit the bigger XS650 frame then cut up a TZ seat and modified it to fit the big loop-style subframe. Large sculpted number plate areas clear the rear shocks perfectly.

Such a nice tail shape. There's even room for a small taillight if you're building a street bike!

Note the nice rolled edge on this seat which gives it an awesome finished look.

We selected the upper half of our F1 fairing for this project because it complements the tank and tail and leaves the pretty motor exposed. It has slight hand bulges and of course a bitchin' 70's race style.

We've listed this bodykit for the 1970-79 XS1, XS2, TX650 and Standard XS650 models. Some of this stuff may fit the 80-85 Special models but the subframe is different on those years.

We make a lot of other parts that fit the XS650, you'll find them listed below.

Call us today with fitment questions, buy a few parts and get your project going!

F1FU
F1 race fairing - upper only

XSRRS
Yamaha XS650 road race tail

This seat started life as a TZ tail but Kent modified it heavily to work with the XS650 frame. It now clears the twin shocks and sits down on the wide XS650 subframe. The sculpting in the side towards the front breaks up the surface and makes it look less heavy visually. This is probably the best looking XS650 tail out there!

Also fits XS500.

XSRRT
Yamaha XS650 road race tank
This is a modified TZ250 road race fuel tank. It was widened and lengthened to suit the XS's larger size and the tunnel was completely reshaped to fit the XS650 backbone. It is supplied with two mounting pucks and will mount to the stock location on the frame. The back of the tank has a generous tab for mounting. Tank is supplied with 2x 1/4" fuel bungs, ready for aftermarket fuel valves (ask your sales rep, we can supply). Our standard twist-off stainless fuel cap is included, other cap styles (monza, flush) are available.

Tank is supplied in plain white gel coat, speed block paint job not included!

Please note! This gas tank is not recommended for street use, this is a fiberglass gas tank that will not dent.  In the event of a crash, the gas tank may rupture and spill fuel possibly catching your motorcycle on fire. This gas tank is recommended for racing purposes, with racing fuel only! Read more...

XJ71
Yamaha XJ700 front fender
This fender worked great for this project and is fairly universal since it mounts to a flat fork brace. The XJ700 had a 19" front wheel but since the fender is so short it really doesn't matter, even with the 16" front wheel on this build it looks like it was made for it!

Width: 5"
Length: 23"
Radius: 19" wheel
