My 650's final drive coupling stripped ( XV535 swap what year? ) PICS ON PAGE 2
Got my bike 2 weeks ago. Its an 04. After a complete fuel system clean and new battery, and plugs she is up and running. Come to find out the seller didnt tell me that the final drive pinion gear was gone.
I have a lead on a xv535 final drive for $70 so i can do the pinion gear swap. Its from a 1990 XV535.
Will that year XV535 work on the VStar-650?
Or should I just buy a new coupler and weld it to my final drive pinion to save money?
