Updates on the green bike.


Write about your XS650.: Last year I finished my dream bike with only a few minor tweaks floating in the back of my mind.  So I finally got a smaller front brake on- older rotor off some Japanese dirt bike, as well as the twin pot caliper.  It actually stops about the same if not better than stock.noid-IMG_1387
Thanks for the great work on the site!

    Hey Justin

    Did you get that twin pot caliper from a dirt bike too?


  2. Justin says:

    Yes sir! Off a big kaw kx!

  3. Blackwidow says:

    nice you still have a front brake and slimmed down the design

  4. reynoldburton says:

    Did you fix the “caliper mounting plate” only to the lower original mount? How did you prevent the caliper from turning upwards when brakin?

  5. Oweb says:

    Just curious but do you know exactly what model the rotor and caliper came off of? I absolutely love this bike, awesome job!

    Where did you get the seat?? Can you email it to me at socerlife3@aol.com thanks!!!

    Yeah, I’d like to know the exact make and model of the caliper too, and any modifications you needed to make to secure it. I love how you still have a front caliper and this the braking power, but don’t have to have such a huge rotor and caliper. Impressive. Any information would be appreciated as I am starting my very first XS650 hard tail build.
