What is the XJCD?

Members Of the XJ Owners Group have donated their time, blood, sweat and sleep to produce a CD of "Everything XJ". This is a not-for-profit endeavour for private study and educational purposes. Access to these materials is restricted to members of the XJOG. Membership is free, the only restriction is that you should own or otherwise have interest in at least one of the XJ series motorcycles produced by Yamaha.

Maximized X

The Maxim X tank is a little on the small side. So when I had to repair a big dent as part of a restoration project anyway, I thought I'd address the size too.

I didn't want to ruin the classic lines of the X tank, so after much debate, I decided to widen it a few inches, leaving the profile intact. The first step was to layout the planned cut with narrow masking tape. Normally used for things like pinstriping, it follows curves quite nicely.
