Man am I glad I found this place. I picked up not only my first XJ bike, but my first bike period yesterday. Its an 82 XJ650 Maxim that the previous owner said had not run in probably 15 years. He rode it for a bit, then gave to his wife when he got a new/bigger bike. She rode for a bit and it eventually ended up in one of their garages, forgotten. He said he'd actually forgotten they even owned it. Flash forward to yesterday, and my I got my father in law to go with me (I don't have a truck, and he does) on the ~5hr round trip to get it. $450 later and its mine. It turned over and wanted to start but didn't. I didn't do a real deep dive on it there, and now I'm working on fixing up all I've found actually needs to be done. Carb rebuild. Gas tank rusted (and has hole on one side, rust spot in same location on the other, 15 years of condensation in an uninsulated garage)- thankfully I know some welders. Want to replace levers, cables, brake/fuel lines. Brake rebuilds. Exhaust pipes have cracks in low points from rust (that condensation during storage is gonna be my nemesis with this bike). Fuse box. Few other little things up front too... I'm very excited though. I'm really glad I found this forum. I've always found that forums far supersede things like Facebook in terms of quality and quantity of information. Modern social media just can't match a good forum. There seems to be a LOT of great guides, both text and video on here. I'm sure as I go through everything to get this bike running I will use many of them.
