1995 Yamaha XJ900S
Great all rounder
Front wheel bearing at 36,000 miles.
Front fork seals at 41942 miles.
Exhaust collector box 49100 and 74154 miles.
Silencers at 67028 miles.
Battery at 7230 miles.
Great for touring, managed the coastline of England and Wales 3100 miles from Leicester in 2 weeks.
Great fun on mountain passes (Scotland in January!)
Numb bum after 1-2 hours, so usually stop for a break.
Great for commuting.
No chain - so no mess, easy to clean!
With side boxes and top box, works well for holidays.
MPG around 50.
Factory tyres (Dunlop) were lumpy on cornering, so I have used Michelin ever since.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
