  • Anonymous Mar 21, 2014

    I have a 1980 xs650 and my front left turn signal needs replaced due to it being bent. The wiring is fine I just need to replace the light bulb, lense, and mount. How do I take off the mount? It is an original xs650 no customization done at all.

I have a 1980 xs650. where are the engine numbers

Generic Comment:

My guess is that a 1980 is points. Look in the area where the cam shaft should be.. Look for a round or oval cover with phillips screws. Pop it off.
