    Hi robert, can you tell a little more. Is it the start button missing? You are more likely to get an XS650 started with the kick starter, There are tricks you can do hardwiring from the battery through a fuse directly to the ignition circuit eliminating most of the problem areas that stop them from starting.  Let me know and I can help you with that.

Missing ignition start switch for 1981 yamaha xj650 maxim, what's the amp required to start it? Having trouble finding the right momentary switch to install


Starting doesn't go through the ignition switch it goes through the starter solenoid and the ignition switch controls that solenoid only about 5 amps.
