Anyone own an XJ650?
Howdy.. just got my KLR a few weeks back, but my first bike was an 82 yamajammer xj650.. Ive had my XJ for about 3 years.. For a first bike it's a little complicated, 4cyl w/ 4 carbs, lots of wiring bugs and several black box compnents that youll never be able to replace if they cook.. a tad cumbersome to work on and lots of headaches for a motorbike newb.. Truth be told, though, it's a decent bike and runs really well for its age/condition.
Finding that I love my KLR, and my XJ is just kindof a on again off again fling... I have a pile of parts to install, so maybe this winter i'll get that stuff done and sell her.
THe only new yamaha of interest to me is the Super Tenere, but heavy and expensive... I'd prly land on an AT or KTM before one of those!
Interested to hear if others are riding XJs, or any other yamaha..
