Head Register

Ivan Hoey and Bill Wallis thought it might be a good idea if we started a register for head and rocker cover numbers that members had in the hope they may be able to find a match.

As most of you know the head and rocker cover on the XS650 is machined as a pair and should never be split, unfortunately it appears that many wreckers and private sellers do split them in the hope of making more money.

I'm sure ignorance also played a part in this as I can see someone going to a wrecker and wanting to buy another head so he can give it a big port job and being asked do you want the rocker cover as well and saying no thanks I already have one.

If you want to include your head and rocker box numbers to this list sent them to Terry Gliddon for inclusion.

If anyone sent numbers before and they did not make it onto this list please send them again.

So to see if we can reverse this trend here are the head and rocker box numbers held by members.

Here is where to look for these numbers if you want to join this register.
