1982 Yamaha Maxim XJ550 (Baby Jag)
Last updated Nov 19, 2010
I just recently bought this bike for 300 bucks. It was a basket case when I first got it but now it runs a rolls down the road pretty quick. It was found by a friend of mine who had been looking for one since early this past summer, he didnt have the money so he passed on it and I got extremely lucky.
The bike is still pretty stock looking which I am trying to keep it that way. I love the look of this bike so changing any fenders or side covers on it would just be wrong. I bought it with the dirtbike handlebars on it but really need to put stock looking bars back on so it handles like its supposed to and to make it more comfy for the long rides.
This bike is just a good all around stock bike, I dont know what option package it has but I will say this, I weigh 315 lbs. and this bikes backend tries to pass the front whenever I get on the throttle any.
Mods so far are as follows.....
Cone air cleaners
Custom built exhaust 4 into 2
Rebuilt and rejetted carbs
Custom built clutch handle
Custom built licence plate bracket
Thats it for now, I just wanted enough done to get back and forth to work on.
