    Purchased this 1982 XJ750 Seca from original owner who neglected the bike it was a big POS when I got it for $250 with title will upload pictures of fully restored bike. After working on that POS for 3 years (We called him Rusty) here is the results. Mostly every thing came from the bike except - Gas tank, front fender and carbs, mice destroyed the originals. Love this bike.

    How do I redo the seat... i have a 81 xj 750r. The seat is shot... also need to derust the exhaust pipes. Any ideas would be awesome cause I'm lost...
    1. metricman820
      My seat pan and foam were in good shape but I found a replica seat cover on ebay you can also find seats if your pan and foam are no good. For the Exhaust if there not to bad I have used evapo rust on my 650 Maxim and it works pretty good.

      I recently recovered my seat. Got info off you-tube. If the foam is OK, remove leather after removing the seat. Spray foam seat with adhesive, get approx 1 sq yard of stretchable faux leather, warm it in dryer for 5 minutes so its really flexible, use industrial stapler to attached new cover to underside of seat frame. Warm leatherette stretches nicely and spray adhesive helps cloth stick well to the foam. Looks pro and only costs $50 all in. Took me all of an hour. CHECK YOUTUBE

    I love that fairing, mine has one too! Does your headlight point at the sky when the fairing is mounted flush with the brackets? I have to keep mine jacked up about an inch in the back.
    1. metricman820
      Yes it did, I trimmed the front plastic trim to be able to adjust the light to angle down.

    Thanks. Can you send me the model # of the K&N pods. I may order a set.
    1. metricman820
      K&N RC-1824 Air Filters - K&N RC-1820DK Air Filter Wrap and for the jets - Dynojet kit - 750 cc Yamaha 81-82 XJ750 ALL MODELS Stage 1 & 3 - 4102. The K&N filters are pricy but keep them clean they should last for a very long time. I also put the wraps on them to help with dirt and rain.

    How do you like the K&N intakes ? I've been told to stay with stock intake box or risk constant carb rejetting issues.
    1. metricman820
      I love the K&N pods, It did take me awhile to get them jetted just right, but have not had any issues with them. In fact my Seca starts better than my XJ650 Maxim which is all stock. Hit me up if you have any question on them.

    Wow. Nice job. Obviously lots of hours into this lady. I have same bike and went more cafe style. Still work to be done.
    1. metricman820
      My buddy wanted me to go café style, but I wanted mote of a sports cruiser/touring . Would like to see some pics of your bike.

      I'll post a few. Havent gone radical. Recovering the seat for a cleaner look and the lower bars look better. WAY more comfortable. Ride for hours, no aches. Added the windshield to do some long rides this summer. Fits well. Even the small size makes big difference at highway speed. I had the bike for sale this spring to upgrade to a larger sport touring. Took her for a ride the morning a guy was supposed to buy it cancelled the deal. Fun, affordable, low maintenance and great ride !!

    Hello, Metricman820. I envy guys like you who take a POS like this bike was and stay with it until it turns out like the bike it is. I would have walked far away from the POS. Wonderful job.

      Hi CatusJack thanks, There were a few times that I almost did walk away but I am glad I didn't and every time I take the bike out I fall in love with it more and more.

      The 750 Seca was/is a highly underrated bike. I Love the 750 Seca. I have a 650 that I've been dealing with off and on. Stories like yours are truly inspiring.
