Cheap Tricks - $1.00 Starter Delete

Wanna delete that starter on your XS650?  I would, and usually do.  While building an engine for an XS650.com member, I was turned onto the idea of using a 1 53/64" freeze plug instead of the $15.00 MikesXS kit.   There is talk of needing to sand down the edges of the plug some, but I had no such issues.



I drove the freeze plug in with a large socket and an extension...  I drove it in from the inside of the cases.  If you wanna really do the job right, pull all the gears and shafts out of the cases while you are at it...  Remember, less weight = free performance.  This mod costs about $1...
