    Did these just go straight on?
     
  2. Yes and no they are the same diameter pipes but need a bigger crush washer also end to push the pipes a hit closer together to make em fit

  3. Ooops, it looks like a couple typos. The original posting says they are for a CB750. Also it's showing the price as $79 plus $55 shipping to the US.

    The guy makes cafe seats as well. I asked him about making one for a XS. I'll let you know what he says.
     
  4. He make a set for a xs750 just looked a lot different and he had mine up for auction not buy it now

    Im confused.....the link you posted said the rearsets are for a cb750 dohc.

    So should I contact him and ask about a set for the 82 cb650 or the cb750?

    Thanks for all the details; this makes adding rear-sets a very reasonable modification.

    How does the side stand sit when it is folded up? Is it in the way at all? I had to lengthen mine because I raised the rear so much.

    I'm curious as to how this would work with my exhaust. I have a 2-1, but my pipe is much bigger and runs up the side of the bike.
     
  8. my bad it was a type for cb750 not the 650 lol
     
  9. what do you mean side stand? and my exhaust comes out the right hand side

    I meant how does the side stand sit on the left hand side. I am just wondering if it will interfere or get in the way when it's folded up.

    I might be mixing you up because I will likely have fitment issues on both sides with my current setup.
     
  11. are you talking about the kick stand
     
  12. Contact info for the maker of the rear sets: vietbac_pham@yahoo.com

    Here is his response to whether he can make a seat and tailpiece like this one but for an XS:

    "I could make it at the same price but please base on the dimension in attached photo to measure your seat and send it back to me. It will be off the ebay.
    Thanks"

    He sent an image with all the dimensions he needs but I can't seem to copy it for here. You'd have to write him yourself.

    bennett: thanks for the hook up.

    Hope this helps.

    Bennett...in the pic the toe piece on the shifter is facing the wrong direction....did yours come that way? Is it just bolted and you switched it around?

    Does the kick start pedal clear the rearsets?
    Any idea if the rearsets would clear a stock exhaust?
