View Full Version : XS650 wheel & fork alternative

10-26-2009, 12:45 AM
I was dicking around in my shop trying to figure out what wheel to use on my 78 XS going threw my parts stash I found an axel from a 75 cb550 and a rear wheel. The axel is 20mm like the xs and the sprocket is 34 tooth like the xs as an added bonus the forks are spaced the same and an inch shorter. I'm stocked about this becouse the cb stuff is easyer to find and allot cheaper hope this helps out others.

Hmm sounds good because I'm going through some issues with my front end right now. What diameter are the CB550 fork tubes, 34 or 35mm? There's two sizes on the XS
