First of all: the title of this post is not in line with the actual cylinder capacity: since this Yamaha XS650 Scrambler by Dime City Cycles is based on a stock XS650, it’s fitted with a big bore kit what makes this a XS744 Scrambler.
The base bike was a 1980 XS650 in a very poor state. Cylinders where rusted and busted, it had no carbs an no exhaust. So they had to rebuild the entire engine.
“Essentially, we rebuilt this motorcycle from the ground up. Every nut and bolt was replaced with new hardware. The motor was rebuilt using 80 mm Pistons taking it to a whopping 744cc. We installed oversized titanium valves and seats, a performance cam and blueprinted the crank. Then fitted the motor with 34 mm Mikuni carburetor.”
The front wheel was made from several parts: for the rear wheel they used a custom 17 inch aluminum rim on a drum hub of a Honda CB450. On the front wheel a 19 inch Sun rim was fitted on a Triumph Bonneville hub.
For some modern braking power, the wheel got a 320mm disc with a moder brake caliper. The wheels where finished with Avon Diztanzia tires (100/80 front and 130/80 rear).
Öhlins shocks where fitted on the rear, while the front suspension got an upgrade with Race Tech springs.
The exhaust system is from Cone Performance.
And off course, all the parts used are from the extensive catalogue. You can check out all used parts for this XS650 Scrambler here:
