View Full Version : XS650 clutch question

11-03-2009, 10:42 AM
I'll try posting this in the Jap section this time...

What year XS clutch (basket, center & pressure plate) are compatible? Can I swap out parts from the different years without problems. I know the earlier setups use 1 less friction dics and plate but is there any other differences in the setups?

i believe if you are going to swap them you need to swap out the whole setup. some guys swap out the 80-84 setup into the 70's model.

The clutch boss fits from 74-83... Pressure plate fits from 74-83...the basket (primary driven gear) fits all xs and tx models. Appears that they should all interchage. you don not need to swap them all at the same time. The parts fiche part numbers are the same for all these years. Although there have been som part number changes, they are the same parts used in all models. Hope this helps. One of the best place to look is on www.Mikesxs.net if you have questions on what will interchange. All you need to do is find the part and it will tell you what years it fits.
