It might be handy if we posted items from other brands of motorcycles that also fit our 650s. Even other RE models or heck, snowmobiles.
A lot of the accessory companies don't know about specific RE fitment so they don't yet list the RE 650s.

I'm sure that a number of rear shocks are the same length and bolt size, etc.

One off the wall example is that our left side handlebar switch box is exactly the same as the one on my 2005 Suzuki SV 650.

I guess it depends on the manufacturer,  but years ago Yamaha only had about 3 different oil filters across their whole model range, wheel bearings were common too. Suzuki though had virtually no consistency.  You would think that rationalizing parts would save a company lots of money in manufacturing and spares holdings.  Now selling them as spare parts is very different,  if you were unscrupulous you could sell identical parts but labelled as bike specific with model specific part numbers. Mmm, how many are guilty of that? I know a couple of brands!

Disappointed that this thread has stalled. I think it’s a great idea 👍

The other unscrupulous thing that sometimes happens with spares is pricing them high to get a good tax write off on warranty work and not particularly caring if the general public every buy any. This happen a LOT with things like laptop motherboards.

Front brake pads are 95-03 CB500.

Front fork preload adjusters are generic 41mm.

Front fork springs look remarkably same as SV650. I’ll double check as I’ve got some ktech ones for my SV race bike I’ll try them out.

This is a "universal" Fork tube mount which could be handy for adjustable clip-on handle bars and / or a custom windshield mount or auxiliary driving lights and so on

Stripped my forks today to install stiffer springs.
With stock springs out and fork compressed the air gap was 140mm. I drained the oil and there was 410ml that came out. I didn’t strip damper rods so there would be a tiny bit left. That isn’t far from the manual spec.
The replacement 9.0 linear springs are SV650 fitment and are 100mm longer than the stock springs meaning the preload spacers needed cutting down to 80mm.
Filled back up with 10w oil to the same 140mm air gap. Once back on bike set sag and had a bounce. May need to go to 15w oil but I’ll take a ride out first and see.

Copied from Couchy’s post elsewhere regarding front brake pads-


Brembo part no. 07BB03SA

When I say race they are used in racing cb500’s by some, they are a road based pad though .

Also, from NVDucati-

I did a fair bit of searching for a USA retailer but in the end I ordered them from https://www.carpimoto.com/en-US/ They have a page for US ordering. Still priced in Euro but no VAT and the shipping wasn't bad. They claim 5 days.
They have a number of INT 650 specific items including front (15-16) and rear (38) sprockets.
For the "cafe crowd" they have aluminum fly screens, too.

I have a pair of 41mm fork preload adjusters ordered off Ebay for $25 AUD delivered. I hope they will fit and will post here result of fitment.

I have some items in my shed that are not brand specific, spanners, compressor, paddock stand, battery charger. Sorry,  I am a naughty boy.

Has anyone come across a helmet lock like the one in the pictures. I’m not sure if this would fit the Enfield, it is made for triumphs by motone.
 Surely something like this is semi universal?
 Are the rear top shock mounts similar to that of a T100?
