    Hi There SnoSheriff, I seen you have a sale on 1981 Yamaha XJ550 Maxim Clutch Basket, do you have any more ? mine is 1983, pretty sure all the xj550's are all the same. I really only need bushings, but apparently they don't exist.

    Hey Ted are you still around ? I have a question about tour post using the Yamaha virago bar clamps on the stock 82 xj750 top triple tree plate. I wanted to know how it worked out for you? As I have been questioned by other members on the forum and being told that it will not work

    Hi I was wondering if you were still selling your rear to front wheel conversion kit? If so I'd be interested in purchasing one from you.

    Biggie-sorry to bug you - I have a 1981 X550 Seca -replaced shims according to factory specs and at 6000 rpm there is a clacking sound (sorry, can't describe any better), what am I missing? I really like this bike but this frustrates the living daylights out if me.
    Thank you for any guidance.

    I have 2 XJ900RK bikes. One restored and another in process. Do you want their numbers for your database?
    I restored the first one in 2007 and sold it after finally getting the prime circuit cleared out. I just bought it back and I am having a little trouble getting the carbs to idle down properly. They are really close, just not quite right...

    I have same bike. even same colour. my question is does your bike use the black rubber plugs over the top of the pilot jet hoes (found in the fuel bowls of the Mikuni carburetors.) Some people on YouTube say they should be used or the bike will run too rich. But I think only Suzuki XS100 etc use them.

    Rooster53, This is Mark Wyzgala and I've just posted a write-up of my 1982 Seca 750 Woes on the XJ technical Chat forum under "1982 Yamaha Seca 750 Loping Idle" Len Chacal told me to contact you and ask you to read the tale of woe and see if you have any ideas. Thanks Mark

    Hi hogfiddles, I was told you are very good at rebuilding carbs. Can you inbox me? I have an xj700x I am having an issue with getting them to work properly.

    Is there anyone able to help me find a petcock for a 1982 xj650 Seca. From Saskatchewan. Thanks

      I have one (or 2) you can have but it will require rebuilding. If you have one now which leaks just order the rebuild kit from XJ4ever.

    Hi Robbie - I live near whitby - are you still messing with xj`s? I am building a 81 xj650
    1. RobbieRobot
      Hi nablats, Bloody hell, so sorry about the late reply. I've only just seen your message. To be honest I have trouble navigating this 'new' forum layout as I posted all of my stuff on the old system pre-2013 I think. I didn't even know my message box was full and couldn't receive any new messages....

      Anyway, I live near Yarm and my XJ Cafe Racer has been garaged for about three years now at my daughter's in Stockton along with my XS650. I stripped the paint from the tank last winter due to blistering caused by what I think might be perforation. Last week I took the tank to a local specialist welder and he's still got it. I'll be phoning him tomorrow to see how he's getting on. How's your build going?

    9 digit vin on an old yamaha250cc trail bike is 450-007858 please can someone give me any more info on what this bike is?
    It also says 1000cc oil and made in japan on it if that helps

    Ryan, consider looking for a 750 Maxim tank......it’s a bolt-on drop-in upgrade

    Hello, I was told by toomanybikes to check with you to see if you had a left hand, front turn signal lens for an '82 Yamaha Seca 650 Turbo. I'm new to the forum and don't know if I'm going about this in the right way, so excuse me if I am. Thank you very much and a very good 2021 to you and yours!---HHB
