Hello

I saw a video not long ago about a Yamaha xs650 running with no battery and I would like to do that to my XS. Can anybody guide me to do that?

Thanks in advance!

You'll need a PMA kit and a capacitor. You can run without a capacitor but I'd recommend against it.

You'll also be limited to kickstart only

Will i need the stock wire harness? or a much more simple harness. Thanks for the input!

xs650.com is your friend for this. There are only a million fucking wiring diagrams for what you want over there.

That is pretty much what I am looking to do but adding turn signals. Do you have a diagram for that?
