You can't see much, but this is the same bike, ripping up the dirttrack & then....the dialogue is fucking hilarious!

I too am interested in the magneto setup on this bike. I know that the stock alternator can't be run batteryless since it needs 12v to excite the field. I know that people have converted them to a permanent magnet alternator and run batteryless using a capacitor in place of the battery. Short of expensive, full-race units, I've never seen a magneto ignition on an XS650.
Please share.

It's a magneto off of a 1998 yamaha banshee, and it's inside the engine, (I assume where the alt was) I didn't install it, and I will take pics the first time I crack the case.

already broke the countershaft sprocket cover when the (totally knackered) chain master link broke. parts on the way....

and so it goes.

bike has no power down low at all, but fucking rips on the highway! The keihin carb isn't dialed in yet.

Thanks for the heads - up, I'll check out that model when I'm near a decent wrecker.

Very interesting mods on that thing! Especially the mag and the two into one aluminum intake manifold!

first off, I wanna make this clear. I DID NOT BUILD THIS BIKE.

Sorry for yelling, but schmucks taking credit for someone else's build is one of my pet peeves.

a very good freind of mine did this entire build, Everything from this point on will be mine.

ok, a couple of photos.



That's the magneto I believe, artsy shot I know, here's another not so pretty


I'm leaning over my KLR, who knew it made a decent tripod also?

I know very little about Xs's, my last one was fifteen years ago I got rid of it, and I didn't wrench on my own shit then (stupid me) so I didn't know much about it.

Question about the clutch. the clutch cable goes to the left side, and hooks to a lever & spring on the part of the bike that's removed. there's a bar that goes into the bike that aligns up inside the case with the clutch lever/spring. Is that supposed to move freely? How does it engage/disengage the clutch? IN the second photo, you can just see it to the left of the countershaft sprocket center

That's the clutch pushrod, it goes through the bottom end and pushes directly on the clutch. If it is stock, there are actually two rods end to end. Aftermarket rods can be bought in one piece.
Yes it does move freely. Whatever you do, don't lose the little ball bearing that goes between the end of the rod and the spring loaded mechanism. When you pull on the cable the mechanism rotates and shifts slightly toward the engine which pushes the push rod and releases the clutch.
The seal for this rod is notorious for leaking, and it is a pita to stop. But the parts are available cheap from "Mikes XS".

And hell yes a 75XS counts. They are the "better Bonneville" you know!
