Yamaha XS650 in Movies
The Yamaha XS650 is a twin, four-stroke custom / cruiser motorcycle produced between 1975 and 1984. It could reach a top speed of 171.0 km/h (106.3 mph)
The engine was a air cooled twin, four-stroke. A 75.0 x 74.0 mm (3.0 x 2.9 inches) stroke result in a displacement of just 654.00 ccm (39.91 cubic inches). The engine features a 8.4:1 compression ratio. Fuel was supplied via a overhead cams (ohc).
The bike has a 5-speed transmission. The final drive was via chain.
It came with a 3.25-19 front tire and a 4.00-18 rear tire. Stopping was achieved via dual disc in the front and a expanding brake in the rear. The XS650 is fitted with a 15.00 litres (3.96 gallons) fuel tank.
I know it would be odd the see one of these on the street, being more than 20 years old, but it looks like a Yamaha TX750. Maybe, maybe not?? http://www.motorcyclespecs.co.za/model/yamaha/yamaha_tx750%2072.htm Yamaha, mais plus récente. Vraisemblablement sur base XS 650, voire même XS 400... Having a 'two level' seat it must be one of the 'Special' models. It appears to be sohc not dohc and also appears to have a drum front brake and wire wheels. It might be a late '70s XS250 or XS400 but I can't find a pic of one the same. too fuzzy to be sure, but could it be one of these..? pipe curve looks right, single cam motor, seats right, tank look slimmer though.. http://www.jwoodandcompany.com/2005/bikes/1981_Yamaha_XS650_%20SpecialII.jpg Yamaha XS 400 SE (4G5)
It's definitely a 1982 Yamaha XS650 . . . http://p1.bikepics.com/pics/2006%5C07%5C27%5Cbikepics-643102-320.jpg

The car on the left in the main pic is a Lincoln, possibly a Continental, perhaps Mark III. Correct on all three counts. Yamaha XS650 about 1976-78. Actually, the car is the same 1978 thunderbird seen in other parts of the movie. It was owned by mike r. from south fayette, pa when the movie was shot. There weren't very many period correct cars available so this car is seen is several scenes. Nonsense. The car in this capture looks nothing like a '78 Thunderbird. CougarTim, sorry, but this is Mike's T-Bird. He confirmed it. I can ask him if he has any behind the scenes pictures of the car on set. He probably does. Was it modified? CougarTim is right, this looks NOTHING like a Thinderbird. I don't know what you are seeing that says it looks nothing like a 78 t-bird. Look at the headlight covers, corner marker light, bumper shape, etc... Lincoln wins http://www.eldorado-seville.com/picsandvideos/markpics/files/DSCF4774.jpg Continental Link to "oldcaradvertising.com" T-Bird
I guess being there doesn't matter, here. What a shame. MY sister in law was in the car for some of these shots, napping in the passenger seat. Oh well. Think what you want. Provenance means nothing? wow.

Yamaha XS 650 SE, 1978. Looks like in France these were known as Special, in some markets the SE and SF were known as US Custom.

XS650 Nice Had a few of these , nice engines but not great handlers ! Indeed, I'm on my second right now. Poor mans Triumph...
Thinking man's Triumph, no oil leaks! That one's either an SG or an SH model, can't tell if it's got a drum or disc rear brake.
Dawn of the Dead
Pas évident à voir. XS 650?
Allez... Pour le peu qu'on en voie, Yamaha XS 650. Mais de quelle cuvée?
Je dirais bien Yamaha XS 650 (impression générale du moteur, et surtout fourche et frein avant)...
Yamaha, au vu des compteurs. XS 650 US Custom, pitêtre...
Not a US custom, it's either a D, E or F model
Law & Order: Criminal Intent EP: 8.05
Later in the episode: It's an XS650, exact year? as it looks to have been built up from parts off more than one bike. Thanks! Now that you're an admin, you can make the edits if you know the models. You won't offend.
I've been gradually working my way through 1960's & 1970's (and some 80's) Japanese stuff to clarify some names and exact model details, it 's not always easy as often there are differences between US and ROW models (Honda 4's) and only the US market is well documented. I'll keep pottering away.
