Looking for parts, air and side cover

PostAuthor: Blakbanshee » Mon Aug 24, 2020 12:57 pm

Hello my fellow xv500 owners,

I'm hoping some of you might have some spare parts laying around. Overall my bike is in pretty good shape but I'm currently missing a few things and would love some spares if anyone has any.

Air filter (don't care how old would really like to rebuild it but currently I don't even have an original to use for modeling or rebuilding)
Air filter cover (also didn't come with this, if I could even borrow one I could do up a 3d printed model or something)
Right side plastic battery cover

And as a bit of a long shot anyone have any exhaust parts? Looks like the original got dropped a few times and has a few holes in it that would be difficult to patch.

Howdy! I have some parts from a 1982 XV750 laying around. I don't know how much of this is able to swap directly from the XV750 to the XV500, but I believe I have most of what you want (battery cover, air filter and cover, old exhaust).

I'm in the Mankato area, south of the twin cities.

Nothing you have will fit the 500. It’s a unique beast, only sold one year in the US, spare parts are rare.

Quite so I'm afraid, from what research I've done it looks like no other similar model will have the parts I need, I'm not sure what the etiquette is for things like this but I will just keep my hopes up and keep checking this post in the hopes that someone has something.

I might try my novice hand at fabricobbling something together to replaced the side panel... we shall see.

The bicycle world has tons of these sort of bags, too.
