Parts Source

A lot of members have asked me to assemble a XS650 parts buying guide and make it a permanent section of the newsletter. I thought it was a good idea so, here it is with a few comments from personal & popular experience. All of them are online business so you might need either call them or ask a friend for help if you don’t have a computer. The order in which they appear here doesn’t imply importance or preference.

MikesXShttps://www.mikesxs.net – online only.
Always a great source of XS650 parts with an amazing inventory ranging from engine to electrical and accessories. There has been a huge improvement in customer service and parts quality since the new owners took the reins of the business and master XS650 restorer Norton Muzzone will make sure that your questions are promptly answered. By far, they are the fastest shippers I know.

Partzillahttp://www.partzilla.com/ – (877) 473-4595 – online and phone
With a great inventory of OEM parts, I often look there first before searching somewhere else.

650 Centralhttp://650central.com/ – (209) 533-4346 – phone orders only
Owned and operated by Michael Morse, 650 Central is loaded with hi-performance goodies, reflecting his long involvement in road racing. It might be a bit difficult to get through (busy signal!) but your persistence will be rewarded with personable and friendly service.

Speed and Sporthttp://store.speedandsportinc.com – (866)455-6831 – online and phone
Based in Bloomsburg, PA, Speed & Sport also carry a good inventory of OEM parts. A quick check on clutch parts for 1978 XS650E shows that, aside from the baskets and hubs, they have everything else in stock.

JBM Industries – http://jbmindustries.com – sales@jbmindustries.com – email orders only
Looking for carb boots and diaphragms? Look no further than JBM Industries, makers of fine durable rubber products. Make sure to read all the measurement instructions before ordering.

CMSNLhttps://www.cmsnl.com – online ordering only
Based in the Netherlands, cmsnl.com carries a large inventory of OEM parts for all brands and countries.

Gasket Kinghttps://www.gasketking.com/product/yamaha-xs650-gaskets-1975-81/
Gasket King produces OEM and custom gaskets. I’ve used them a couple of times. Good stuff.

Athena Gasketshttp://www.athenaparts.com/eng/models/view/4743/yamaha-xs-650
Manufacturer of high-quality gaskets for almost all motorcycles out there. If I need a gasket set, that’s where I go.

eBayhttps://motors.ebay.com – online only
The traditional source for used parts. There’s a lot of stuff there but be careful with what you buy – lots of Chinese knock offs – and don’t be shy to ask the seller for more photos.
