Are there any step by steps on how to do the job, either 270 0r 277. Anyone do one here? Does anyone offer the service for a reasonable amount of money? I saw a bit of info on the subject on various sites but no step by step. Also if any of you have done the job, how much did it cost you?

Heres a link to something you may have seen, but go down to see Limey bikes thoughts on rephasing as well.

given the expense and pain in the ass index...I'm gonna go with a 750 bore kit next...i'd rather have cubes with vibes....I'm not riding a thousand miles a day on a hardtail.

for real,,,in all what youd spend in time splittin the crank an what not,, 3-400 havin a custom cam ground to make the thing breathe,, you could've built a hellova xs 750 big bore motor...

Doing the work yourself doesn't cost too much :) Im thinking 800CC or more on the next re-phased engine I build. And I do ride mine 600 miles or more a day when I get out...


AND, I agree with that article to a very strong point. Shaving weight is one of the best things you can do to an XS650. Rotating weight specifically. Wheels, tires, Gears and Chains can all be lightened to get more power to the ground. Once you've done all that, added decent exhaust, headwork, camwork, and carbs, then go for a re-phase. Smooth is nice, and Knuckleheads have a nice vibe, XS650's don't :)
