My bratty XS650 build
« on: Oct 23, 2012, 02:53:42 »









The wiring has been completely simplified with a custom harness built, everything wrapped in heat shrink. Went with a solid state reg/rec A cool little push/pull button controls power to the bike and I have small momentary button on my handlebars for the electric start which fires the bike up in like a 1/10th of a second, there is also a switch on the bars for my lights.

The front brake line has been replaced with super thin black steel braided line. I dropped the whole bike quite a bit, and yes there is enough room for suspension travel in the rear, it barely moves - this thing is practically a hard tail. As far as everything else goes, you can see whats been done.

Next up is a PMA (magneto), and I'm also thinking about rear sets. I'm usually not a fan of them but when you sit on this bike, it feels like it would be really fun to have your feet a little further back.

I also might do something with the tank but i really can't decide what yet... Also I have polished up the cases since this pic was taken and they look the tits.

What do y'all think?

Nicely done!  Like the stock paint scheme- adds to the vintage feel.

Love it.  I hope my KZ turns out as nice.  Well done.  Tasteful and clean all around.

Do you have any close-ups of your electrical?  Swithes, placement, and I gotta see more of that tailight.
