Question about 1979 Yamaha XS 650 SF
Is there anything out there that I can use as specific instructions on how to remove my 1979 XS6502f engine so I can get it repaired? I know I could probably purchase a shop manual, but perhaps, some other means is available. I need to do this myself to minimize the cost of getting it fixed. Thanks. Tim
Hi fixx it
With the XS650, if you blew a hole in a piston, it has been detonating on that cylinder, probably too lean more than anything.
There are some great forums out there that you can get access to with lots of information about the XS650. I own one myself, and have used this forums to rebuild my bike.
for parts check out Mikes XS
for great advice on any dramas you are having
The motors are easy to get out of the frame. One man can lift the engine, though I would recommend having someone hold the bike for you whilst getting it out. I do have a link for a workshop manual somewhere, will get back to you shortly with that also.
happy to talk to you more about your classic bike. I love XS650's and ride one every day:)
