1985 Yamaha XJ750 Maxim X from Canada
Much more bike than anyone thinks
Fuse box buzz - I need a couple of screws.
Fork seal - oil seal on the right fork started leaking during a road trip... and after I drove through a massive pothole.
Wiring - some burned connectors because of corrosion of the wires under the left side panel. Easily fixed.
Alternator brushes - just age. Took them out, cleaned and replaced. Didn't even need to replace yet.
Seat foam - foam seat was done... just too soft. I rebuilt with new foam.
I bought this bike for $1750.
The 750 was only available in Canada.
What an engine - the first time I twisted the throttle to jump into traffic, it exploded out of the corner like a snake out of a hole. Friggin' fast.
0-60 in 3.2 seconds.
1/4 mile in 11.3 seconds.
Considered a cruiser as it sits in a Virago like design... Don't be fooled.
Inline 4 cyl, with 5 valves per cyl, liquid cooled, shaft drive.
Most awesome bike ever.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
