XS650: Engine Nuts n Bolts   Leave a comment

Been thinking about tarting one of the old girls up a little. Nuts n Bolts. But which?

  • Alu?
  • Stainless Steel?
  • Titanium?
  • Phillips Screw type?
  • Hex socket(Allen key)?
  • Hex Head?
  • Race Spec?

Not racing so I dont need them drilled. Weight isn’t really a factor so I can’t justify the expense of Titanium. Aluminium? Stainless steel?

Pro Bolt has an interesting selection. Outlets in the UK, USA, Australia, Germany, Denmark, France, South Africa.

 

aluminium, hex socket – allen key … gold, silver, red, purple, orange, grey, black, blue

 

stainless steel … hex socket – tapered head (allen key)

 

stainless steel … flanged head hex bolt

 

Titanium … race spec – drilled … flanged head hex bolt … silver, purple, gold, blue

 

aluminium … race spec – drilled … hex bolt

 

titanium banjo bolt – single … 10mm – hex socket (allen key)

Next problem. List of required items. Went through an old engine. Put this list together…Haven’t checked it right through so may not be 100% correct. XS650E.

XS650: Accessorized   Leave a comment

Looking back. 70s and 80s. Sometimes I cringe. Glad I mostly avoided the camera. Bellbottoms. Flares. Platform shoes. Shaggy and Afro hairdos. Shoulderpads. Jelly shoes. Leggings. Mousse. Disco…….

On the other hand there was Punkrock. Heavymetal. Longhair…….

There were also these. Shaggin wagon for bikes.
