XS650 Rear sets are here!!!

Hi, I am a CNC programmer and machinist for 15 years, and Have been making motorcycle parts for the last 5. I have been building bikes for around 4 years now as well.

I have spent the last few months finalizing the design on my XS650 rer sets. These will mount on ANY XS 650 from 70-83. There's 2 different mounts for 70-73, and 74 and later. All billet construction. Mounts are 3/8 thick, and the levers are too. I dont like using 1/4 inch. Some of these old bikes dont shift as easy as new ones. They mount to the stock foot peg studs, with spacers behind the mount, and lock nuts holding it on. Pegs are knurled, for great grip, and looks. I have sold 5 sets of these already on other forums, with no complaints at all.
Kit includes, XS650 specific mounts, 2 Levers, toe pegs, foot pegs, 4 spacers, nuts and bolts, and Linkage kit of stainless threaded rod, and rod ends.

For another 15 dollars, i include a cast shift arm. Otherwise you need to heat and bend the stock shifter.
You will need to figure mounting to brake pedal, usually turning it up 90 degrees or so. And drilling a hole in it. (similar to TC bros )
Price is $175 shipped in the lower 48, $198 to canada. $212 overseas. Add $15 for shift arm. Ask Any questions, please.

Very nice! The levers must be a lot of time/material to machine, given the offset?

Right on! Yes, I'm in the states. I'm not ready for them yet though, do you plan on hanging around here/would it be cool if I hit you up at a later date?

Yeah ill be here. Cafe bikes are my thing. and i have a build thread here on the board that i need to update.lol

As far as time to machine, there not too bad. I machine them flat, than i built a die set, to heat and bend them on. material cost would be 4 times as much to mill the offset into them.

Cool man. One more question, as I don't have an xs650, so I'll be making my own mounting plates. How are you working these so they rotate smoothly? Just curious if I'll need anything besides the pegs/levers... ie bushings or bearings.

Cool that you're sticking around. I'm working on an Xj650 Maxim and will be in the market for a rear set, right after I get my income tax return check!

I use .375 wide levers, with a .375 wide, .750 OD bronze bushing. There is .624 diameter 'nose' machined on the end of the lever, .385 long than rides inside the bushing/lever. (With a 3/8-16 tapped hole in it for mounting). Allowing it to pivot freely. My suggestion for mounts would be, as long as you have at least 1 inch diameter of surface area, where the lever, and peg contact, you should be OK.

Sounds great Durgam. I'll be sure leave adequate surface area on the mounts. Thanks for explaining it!

Road Rash...
Ill start making up some pegs. Those are pretty time consuming for me, since our lathe isnt set up for ANY kind of production. They still come out great though. ;D

Yeah, no problem man. Take your time. I'm not in a rush at the moment, and definitely want a set off you. Those sets of yours look awesome and quite stout. A definite bang for the buck that's worth the wait!

cool. Glad you think so.
IM in the middle of making a billet aluminum upper triple clamp for my cafe project, than I want to make a stock replacement billet piece. I should get back to making rearsets in a week or so.

Durgam......left a post on another thread you have....want 1 maybe 2 of these kits for the xs650 if you can come up with folding pegs for us...we have exhaust/kickstart issues that we are kind of locked into.......Can you help us? and roughly when?
Thanks again!!!

One option might be to make them compatible with the folding pegs Tarozzi sells, or another aftermarket set of folding pegs. I'd imagine creating folding pegs that stay up in place etc. might get complicated and expensive.

Ive got a couple good ideas regarding that issue. I would hate to have someone kick there bike, and the shake, knock the peg down, and brake their ankle or something else.....
IM rollin with it now though. Ill have a design on folding pegs locked down this weekend, and in prototype mode early next week.

thanks for all the interest!!

beautiful looking stuff. I like the style a lot... however if you get an aggressive rider or a person whom actually rides.... the aluminum on aluminum pivot point will gall.... it is so porous and soft that it will eat itself.... we have remedied this at Loaded Gun Customs/ TC Brothers with a bronze oil impregnated bushing available at any local hardware store..... we had about 10 sets made before we started getting serious bind from our aluminum on aluminum pivots points..... hope this helps .... awesome job!!!!! Do you sell your cast shift arm to dealers... if so what kind of bulk buy could get???? Please Respond at Loadedguncustoms@gmail.com

Very(!) good looking levers and mounting plates!
The pegs themselves could need a little refining. Imho.

Best regards

My rear sets :) DO :) have a bronze oilite bushing in there. Its lightly pressed in the lever, and the nose of the peg is slip fit into the bushing. Allowing excellent movement, and wear resistance. It can be removed/replaced when necessary.
thanks guys for all your good words. Folding pegs are coming soon!!!
