XG500/XG750 differences

Got my parts manual delivered (99610-15A) yesterday & it was interesting to read through some of the differences between the 500 & 750 based on part number breakdowns.

Bear in mind its a parts manual, not a service manual so it does not say what is different about the parts.

500/750 have the following different parts (apart from the obvious barrels & pistons)-

Valve covers, Cylinder Heads, Valves, Balance Shafts, Crankshaft, Fuel Injectors, Clutch Springs, Exhaust Pipes, Muffler & Wheels.

These are a truly new bike from the ground up, there are about 4 part numbers in the whole book that have an introduction date previous to 2015.

I shipped the parts manual from USA as HD Australia does not recognize the part number for it. The service manual number was good & I placed an order for it but have not yet received it.

Excellent information. Thank you.

Having ridden both the obvious difference in performance is power, power, power. Handling is virtually the same (except for the power) and everything else also felt basically the same.

The Street 750 does have outstanding power comparable to my 1200cc Sportster in most respects. That surprised me somewhat but I've been told it's actually quicker in the 1/4 mile and I wouldn't doubt it because of it's weight advantage over the Sportster.

With the 500 I had to be a little careful about not lugging the engine from a standstill, something that wasn't even a problem for the 750, but other than that it performed exceptionally well.

Always remember that for every mile of highway there are two miles of ditches.

If you did buy a street, which one did you get? If not, which one would you get?

Happy to supply any part numbers that anybody needs - just ask.

Sadly, the manual does not list any accessory parts, only standard production items.

Roller bearing (with cup) - Part number 48300-60. (2) required.

No, this is a new part number - 2015 introduction.

XG500/XG750 share the same part.

I purchased a Street 750 a week ago but I was also the first person to test ride the Street 500 at my local dealer when it came in about 3 weeks ago.

Of note it's started raining (not unusual for the Pacific NW) so my riding over the last couple of days has been curtailed and we don't expect a break in the weather until this weekend.
