I have recently bought a 1982 yamaha xj-750. I have ridden many bikes before, and let me tell you - this is the smoothest riding and one of the best cruisers out there. All you gotta do is roll back the throttle, and you are GONE! I would recommend to anybody.

I have owned several bikes over the past 25 years but I bought my maxim in '84 and it has been the best ride I have ever had. She handles fantastic on both the turns and straights and has more HP than any crotch rocket I have driven. No Harley could ever match the fun of this bike. I can't imagine ever giving it up.

I bought this bike and it was in good mechanical shape. The chrome was spotless. But it need a paint job. Once I got it repainted and seat recovered, it looks great. These Maxims are very sexy, curvy bikes. They are super quick for a cruiser. Much quicker than the large cruisers of today. This 750 is a little small for long road trips, not for power, it has oodles and gobs of power, but for ride comfort.

I bought this bike in Nov 2002 just to see if I could still ride as I have serious back problems. Paid a grand for it. Was fully accessorized, one owner with 22,000 miles on it. Came with SLIDING back rest, 2 hard bags and a hard trunk. I love this motorcycle. I put over 10,000 miles on it in about 8 months, I ride it everywhere. I have ridden a 97 Kaw. Vulcan, a 1995 BMW R1100 and while they were nice, my bike rides just as nice. I have been on road trips with the big boys and had no problem staying up and do better on curvy roads as mine handles like a sport bike. If I do get another bike, it will be a big tourer for the long trips (over 400 miles), but I will always keep this bike. No mechanical problems at all. Being older, can be tough to find parts for. So far have had to replace a starter and the petcock. If you find one, buy it. You will never regret it.

I bought my XJ750 used from a co-worker that had it sitting for 4 years and could'nt figure out why he had such a hard time getting it started and keep it running until it warmed up. After purchasing it from for a song, I put it in the shop and tore off the carbs and discovered that he had left gas in them and of course they were tarnished beyond repair, so I got on the internet to look for replacements from a salvage yard. I bought a set that were in perfect shape for $250 and installed them as soon as I got home and was riding it by late that afternoon. It is really a fun bike and I run it to work every day and scoot around on the weekends. I plan to put some bags on it so I can carry the goodies when I ride. I have more than one bike so I don't use it all the time but it does get it' s fare share of miles every year. I wouldn't take it on many of my long trips but I do take it out for all day runs from time to time. Be careful and see you on the road. I'll be the one waving to ya!

Got this bike cheap not too long ago. After doing the cosmetics to get it looking good, been riding with a smile on my face. Lots of power with an excellent suspension (that is adjustable) underneath. Only complaint is that they brakes are weak and I understand that is common with this series of Yamaha. No matter, if you find a Max, buy it!
