Hi I just signed up to this forum and have a question regarding my XS 650 that is getting the cafe look. I have cut off the rear tail loop just behind the top rear shock mounts to add a flatter tail loop that will also house my small battery under the seat rear bubble. I need to fashion a rear tail loop to push back into the frame and weld into place. Should I construct this loop from solid bar or tubing? Bar would sure be easier to bend without kinking I would think.
Thanks Jeffery

Thanks for the response. Can I ask why your choice would be tubing rather then solid bar? I am planning on slipping whatever I decide to use inside the frame itself and weld it in place so the material I use will have to be a bit smaller then the frame tubing. It won't be supporting any more weight then a small battery up under the seat bubble.
