XS650 and some later models like XS750/850 triples are a pretty easy swap. 1974 through 1976 650 tubes will slide right into the XS500 triple trees. Later models are 1mm larger in diameter so you need the complete assemblies or bore your original under bracket and crown.

This summer I got creative and installed a set of TX750 sliders on FJ600 36mm tubes. That allowed me to use the early pattern two piston brake calipers on my 1976 C model that came with the awful single piston pin slider calipers. I trimmed the fender lugs off the sliders so they could be turned around like on the 1976 XS650C. They went into XS850 triple trees and I used the lightweight TZ250 alloy version calipers. So now it handles well and stops great! 🔧🏍🏁

I do not believe there is a direct replacement but I am not sure. this bike works completely fine braking wise with the setup for the most part. if you want better braking go the dual disc front end that is explained in a bunch of posts on here
