Hello, first of all congratulations with the Yamaha XS650 Reloaded. Nice bike. I am the owner of a Yamaha XS650 and i try to improve my brakes and i was wondering which calipers and rotors were used for the “Reloaded” project. Also, would those just fit on an original frontfork? If adaptors are necessary please send informations about size, etc. Thanks in advance.

We did that bike a number of years ago. I can not remember all that went into it. If I recall Kevin at Dunworth Customs actually did the front wheel/ brake conversion. He does more XS650 builds then we have and probably has the answers you need.
