Question about 1974 Yamaha XS 650 A
Does it take off to the right like the yam XVs? or do I take the wheel out the back?
Hi .... The Xs is conventional, ie straight out the back. Put a plank of wood or something similar under the centre stand, this'll give you a bit of extra height and once the spindle is out the wheel will come out slightly to one side. Problem comes if someone has fitted an aftermarket custom exhaust which reduces egress. Also if you still have standard twin exhausts you may have to lower swingarm (by disconnecting lower shock bolts (thus the plank) to remove spindle. Remember to note spacers as it comes apart and regrease spindle on re-assembly.
