Makes Small Children Cry.
” 81 XS650 Engine: Bored 80 over, polished heads, exhaust torque cones, port optimizers, Mikuni VM RS36 carbs (from Michael Morse), short straight pipes, upgraded clutch, hi-output ignition coils, plugs, and wires, kick and electric start, new AGM battery.
The engine is strong, just needs the carbs tuned (jetting is very close, just neeed tweaking to match exhaust/ignition). Ive this engine an 8 out of 10 as far as performance and reliability. It’s running very rich at the moment. The only mechanical problem is some minor blow by through the Valve Guide(s). Which is causing some white smoke. This is an easy fix on this engine (and I am including two sets of heads with valves, cam, rocker covers,etc). Compression is good. Well over 1,500.00 invested into just upgrades on this engine.
Welds Verified With X-Ray
Frame & Body: Custom rigid frame (all welds verified with X-ray), 16” ape hangers, custom tensioner, custom forward controls, new grips, new seat, tank is rust free and sealed, Ford Model 30 taillight (license plate bracket), new Avon tires (less than 20 miles on each).
This bike is fun and a definite head turner. I personally built this machine and I now the quality of work that was put into it. Its not some hack job that you commonly find anymore. If you are a weekend warrior, scared to get your hands dirty, don’t know how to use tools, or you’re an inexperienced rider, then this bike is definitely not for you. It’s fast, rattles your fillings out, hardly stops, and makes small children cry.“
