haha nice Jack sorry next time I will think about my title a little more but thanks for all the help i have decided on the xs anyone have imput on what years were better?
Do some research, someone once mentioned to me that the 76 had different gear ratios, a closer ratio gearbox or something. Also a disk brake bike, not sure when they switched over from drum. I forget what year, but I think like 1978 or 79 they changed the look to the goofier 80's look, with buckhorn bars, goofy seat etc.

Well; it's Jack's bike! Tell him how to shave off weight. The Yetman CB will weigh quite a bit less! I keep talking about it, I know. It will be on the road by April '08.
beth & jack,
clancypants weighed his new greenmachine cb350 on the scales at loudon in june....i think he said it weighed in at 270lbs.
ask rosko what his weighs, cause i think it is close to that as well.
i'm putting my two cb350's on winter diets. see you all on the scales in may!
i rode a 79 xs650 last week and besides the thing vibrating more then a washing machine, i really enjoyed it. It felt bigger then a cb350 in terms of weight but the thing has a lot more balls. much more low end grunt (300cc's more will do that i guess). but the vibration seriously killed me. wtf is up with that? do all // twins do that shit?
