    HI Oz XJers...I've got a 1985 XJ900 work in progress which I ride each day. Bought it from the wreckers complete about 3 years ago and have spent a "bit!!!" of time fixing the electrics (who hasn't?), cylinder hone, new rings and a general spruce up. Still has reasonably good original black/red paint job but with an unusual full fairing. All that's left are the cosmetics and a new paint job to make it look as good as some on this site.

    I live in Fitzroy area, Melbourne.

    Add another Aussie to the list.

    Just bought an XJ900 as a project and have not even completed a list of to do's yet. Long way to go but I'll post a few photos along the way.

    Based on Sydney's northern beaches.

    Cheers

    G'Day Andrew,

    Any recommendations on parts suppliers or wreckers. I've used the guys at Action for some basic stuff but will need a fair few items over the coming months. I'd love to find a wrecker to as I want to see if an XJ900N tree will fit my XJ900R frame - that way I can get ride of the ugly bars the PO put on and find some risers and drag bars.

    Cheers,
    oby

    Hi folks I'm based in Ipswich Qld as far as parts go I could do with some tips as well.
    Need carb diaghrams and does anyone know where to get that belly pan that came out with the XJ that I've never seen on one on the road.
    Sorry 83 XJ750 is my beast.
    Had an 82 as my first big bike maybe I'm having a midlife crisis.

    Hi Guys
    I have found Brisons M'cycle wreckers here in Sydney very helpfull for parts.
    My best find to ate is a guy in NZ that makes an after market TDI unit & cheaper than getting your reconditioned locally. I found him on ebay.

    Parts diagrams can be found on Yamaha USA web site , dates & model designations differ slightly but you can usually get one thats pretty acurate.

    I also have a belly pan of an 84 model XJ900 at this stage I haven't decided if I still need it.

    I'm turning my 900 into an old school chopper.

    Cheers
    Andrew
