'74 to '79 Standards have 18" rear drum here in Australia, they will interchange with Special mags ['81 onwards] that had the drum rear system,
Have found that Specials don't like 18" on the rear & behave badly at times, Standards don't mind 16" rear mags though, go figure????
Probably has to do with frame geometry or something, to the naked eye - I've never seen any difference???

PCKOOP, yes I was talking to you. Sorry, I was not clear. I like the IRC Durotour tires, I was running them for a couple years on my Special. Prices good on those. I switched to Dunlop GT501. I got better mileage with the IRC but the Dunlop works better on dirt/gravel roads and seams stickier on pavement.
Thanks I was curious.

Thanks

Front wheel Spacer size

Hi XS650 fellow riders,
I need a favor to ask. I changed the front tire last week and realized that the spacer 90560-17126 (OEM #) was missing. I went to the local Yammy dealer and they said they did not have it, only 90560-17146. I don't know the difference, they said it is probably longer that I would have to take it to a machine shop to cut. But #1 I dont know if that is true. Since I don't know the original sized OD and lenght. If that is the case, I might as well have the machine shop make me one all together. Does anyone know how to descypher the 17126 number? I imagine 17 is the ID but the 126? Does anyone have a front tire out to take measurements? I Don't know when it went missing. I imagine during one tire change about 5000 miles ago.

Thanks a lot for your help, anyone's....

What model ? / year?,
Only difference would be '70-'73 [early] as opposed to '74 onwards,
Cheers

Xs650g

Well, I got the bike back on the road today after a 2 1/2 wks of being down for maintenance. New 520 o-ring chain and sprockets, modified the magnetic pick up screw and set the timing, it was slightly retarded. Adjusted valves, changed oil, iridium plugs, installed new floats in the BS34's, they were sticking and overflowing. Still need to check to see if there are any holes in the floats. Also balanced the carbs as best I could.
BTW.. I am impressed with the progressive shocks and fork springs but need to adjust the emulators a little bit more.
I just got back from test ride, about 45 miles. Got a warning ticket in the Catoctin Mountain National Forest for 45mph in a 30mph limit. Shooeee. Do not need another speeding ticket.
Hunter thanks for the picks of the gathering you went to. I love them all.

Motor in 'Kenny' needs a rebuild, used 3/4 litre of oil in 360kms,
Nothing obvious like a leak or blue smoke, so combined with a new motor vibration - I think it's time for a investigative rebuild
Only done 50,000kms [32k+ miles], so a bit annoyed with the result but it's been a lot of hard kms in there,

Came out with more then I went in with!, picked up those two white panniers for $20!,
off Gnome who had them in his sidecar after buying a job lot in Sydney on the way down
Cheers
