Hi there.
The 72 XS650 uses 34mm OD fork tubes. You can easily get replacements from MikesXS for US$129 a set. They have all of the parts you may need to overhaul the forks. The OEM part number for these is . # 306-23124-60-00

SOURCE: i am rebuilding a 1972 yamaha xs2, the forks are

This is a great bike to rebuild.. If you aren't concerned with the bike being stock and just want a reliable runner, consider going to disc brakes. The front end is a Showa and is 34mm. This was changed to 35mm in mid 1977. Many front ends from other makes will work. The triple trees just need to fit the neck on the frame, sometimes there are neck cups that can be adapted.

Disc brakes that are 30 yrs old need to be thoughly scrutinized. Most likely need a complete rebuild. Don't waste money on anthing with pitting in the master cylinder or calipers. Drum brakes can usually be cleaned up and run. Check the mounting holes, these were easy to strip by newbie owners. This bike is a classic in it's own right, I have seen them run Flat Track against Triumphs and is a favorite because of plentiful spare parts.. on the other hand many *** bikes got treated like garbage.

I also believe there is an online forum that supports the Yamaha 650. do some surfing and you will find a wealth of info on the NET..

I have a 1979 Yamaha GT80 that I recently got running, but very poorly. I have rebuilt the carburetor and decoked the top end. It is hard to start and once started, will not idle. When giving it throttle...


did you check the clearances between piston & bore it sounds very much like its time for a rebore & oversize piston that is a top end rebuild rather than just a clean up
