1985 Yamaha XJ700 Maxim X
Best all around bike ever made...
Carburetor manifold gasket leak; fuel petcock leak. No biggie.
This is my 2nd '85 700 Maxim X... have owned 22 bikes over the last 50 years. My favorite bike by far. Fast out of the hole and tours well.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes

I agree almost 100% on the 1 through 10 score. Also, the bike is fast out of the hole, and has great pick up (even at high speeds) for its size. If I find another I'll buy it. My bike would get a wobble on the front at 120 to 130 MPH. Could have been the tire - not sure.
I've had many bikes. This was the best all around bike. Besides that wobble, this was the funnest and most reliable bike.
