Yamaha XJ to FJ motorcycles

Post  liquidg on 29th March 2010, 12:20 pm

The XJ Yamaha has a place in my heart as they were the best of the best for their day in reliability power and comfort.
They were the police bike of choice for ages as they just kept going and the secret to them was mainly the shaft drive.
Very few shaft drive bikes of smaller than 1200ccs are made any more and are quite rare these days compared to the 80s and 90s because they require very little maintenance and the bike makers make very little money on spare parts and repairs with them.
The XJ has become the FJ these days and is a 1300cc bike.

This is the first of the XJs,it was a 650 turbo first sold in 1981.

These are the XJ 900 and 750 from 1981 to early 2000s.

SHaft drives,just three percent lose in power over chaines,no maintenance and just a soft wistling sound from the shaft drive and no chaine grinding away.
