Follow me on my project as I purchase a Yamaha XS650, get it running and registered and then chop it into what hopefully is a sweet scoot that I can get out on and tear up the roads.

Some more parts

Today the adaptor bracket to create the permanent magneto setup arrived. This bracket is cast by hand by a guy from the US who was one of the first to look into using the Yamaha Banshee Rotor on an XS. It is a great little adaptor and it is a shame that it is going to get covered and hidden away, but it will make the bike a better chopper. This also means that I am only waiting on the Honda Stator to arrive and I have all the magneto parts.

I also dug through my boxes of car and bike parts and found my Regulator/Rectifier that I purchased a couple of years back when the CBR had charging issues. The stock Reg/Rec turned out to be ok (my multimeter at the time was stuffed) and I actually had to replace the stator due to some fried windings, but this is a suitable reg/rec for the magneto setup, so it has worked out well.

I have also created a list of the parts that I need to order, so far it has all the carb parts that I need, and once I check out a bit more of the bike this weekend I will know the other parts that I will initially need. No doubt I will end up making another order for parts later on, but the parts now will get the bike running correctly.
