Exhaust for 1982 Yamaha Maxim XJ 750 HELP!!

#1 Unread post by logik287 » Tue May 03, 2016 11:07 am

Hey everyone,

My Gsxr 750 got ran over in a parking lot last week so the idiot driving the truck is paying for a new bike for myself.

I'm now planning on buying an older project bike to bob out and have found a 1982 Yamaha Maxim XJ 750 that needs a little bit of wiring and an exhaust.

I'm sure i can figure out all the wiring but I'm curious when it comes to the exhaust i cant seem to find any aftermarket parts that will suit the bike (According to website catalogs ive found)

Could someone direct me to where i might find something that would work for me? I'm a little lost in this situation and I want to check out rough cost of parts before i purchase the bike. I'm not sure if i can just throw any exhaust on there, or where i should start looking. Located in Canada.

Any help greatly appreciated!

I'd say eBay is your friend. And Peterborough cycle salvage has some good older bikes in their yard. They ship stuff for a good price depending where you are at.

Check out the Mac 4-into-1 exhaust. It should fit on your bike.
