Nice, wheels aren't original, should be mags not wires,
or am I wrong again?, different countries - different wheels?

As you can see, I run whatever wheels as needed, can't get a decent knobby in 16", so I use 18" wire with a Dunlop 606,
Cheers

I haven't melded the 1986 YZ125 front end to the 1979 XS650 yet, trying to finish off the F11 first. But I did some research before I bought the 125. The triple tree stem has the same inner bearing diameters as the XS650 stem, so barring any bearing height issues the YZ stem should mate in the XS head tube with the stock XS head bearings. The other issue is stem length. The XS650 stem is slightly longer than the YZ stem, but the YZ uses about a 1" tall top nut, so a shorter version might work.

Don't know if that is what you were after, but that's what I got.
Any updates on fitting the front end?
