XS 650 tracker made in France by Max Power


Jérôme – Badass XS 650 tracker with brake for better cooling, and, again, different suppliers have been put to use: forward, Braking for the disc caliper and 320 mm at the rear, Brembo for the caliper and Works Racing Parts for the disc.
And if Stern keeps the pedal and master cylinder she takes advantage of a lever against by radial Brembo home.


Sticks to the rims of origin, odd sizes, then in turn been advantageously replaced by spoke wheels of 18 inches in this case, the hubs from a KTM 450 EXT, and the wheels in Akront , their size has allowed to opt for Pirelli Scorpion, 110/80 in front and 140/80 at the rear.

  8. Hi all!

    Thank you all for your comments, glad you like it.

    I’m Jêrôme, but I’m not the builder of this beauty.

    Max Power built it, and I just covered it as an “amateur journalist” keen on vintage motorcycles.

    I’ll transmit all your love to Philippe and his team at Max Power.

    Thanks for them.

    And greetings from France.

  12. Pekka says:

    I like this one a lot! How did you fit the KTM hub to the rear? Did you use spacers to get correct chain line?


  13. Yes, while modifying this motorcycle, a lot of specific spacers and brackets were used in the process.
