    putting this up for sale so I hopefully don’t have to drive 1400 miles round trip just to go pick it back up

    This was my sons learning bike from last year. He has since upgraded to a Yamaha super tenere and no longer needs this

    I’ll start by saying it does need the starter clutch fixed.

    New tires, new brakes, new lines, rebuilt carbs last year (hoping he stored it well, less than 11,000 miles

    Located in Morgantown WV

    500$ is what I’d like to get

    Send me a pm. I can get more pics if necessary

    Thanks. Joe

    I don’t know the values for that area but I will take a guess and say it’d be around 6-700 needing the work mentioned and it’d be nearly double without needing anything
    That said. I know I have more into it than it’s worth

    Pretty sharp looking bike...... A couple things to do Cosmetically,but that's a steal of a price. I bet it won't be for sale long.....someone better snag that while they can

    Is the starter clutch replacement a motor out, split the case affair? I know it is that way for my XJ600S... I would be interested in the bike if it can be replaced with motor in and compression is good...

    No--- too far to go this time, andvim buried with end-of-semester stuff.... finals to give, grades to calculate, graduation performances to plan--- no time right now, but that's ok--- someone else will get a really nice bike.

    It is a great deal Joe but you know that there are 2 kinds of people in this world, Maxim folks and Seca folks and I am a Seca type. I just can't get all that comfortable on a Maxim.

    It is okay to go both ways, just "different", but XJ people do not judge, just accept.
