Description

Additional photos are available here for your perusal.

It would be easy to assume that the engine in the XJ550 was just a destroked 650, but that ain’t fair. It was almost an all-new design, with a 6-speed transmission, chain final drive, and a new cylinder head with Yamaha’s YICS system that enabled 50+ mpg fuel consumption. It was a solid mid-sized motorcycle with a love it or hate it front fairing.

The XJ was equipped with lots of features that were typically found on bigger bikes, like a sidestand safety cutout, adjustable front brake lever, self canceling turn signals, and more.

Manufactured in March of 1982, this example is VIN: JYA4U8002CA025108. The seller purchased this Seca six years ago from a private party in Wisconsin.

The odometer shows 12,842 miles. The seller has put 1,500 miles on this example.
