Cafe Racer Timelapse build - Yamaha XJ 600 (FJ 600)

3 Jun 2018
2 208 120 Ditonton

Here is the timelapse build of my third cafe racer project : a 1984 Yamaha FJ 600 (or XJ 600 in Europe)
I chose a more difficult motorcycle this time as the XJ 600 is known not to ben easiest one to transform.
If you want to support me you can get one of my original tshirt from my store :

  • Nice job, you have taken a vastly underrated bike and turned it into a thing of beauty well done. So many guys just go out and buy that look, most companies make something along those lines trying to catch the hipsters and sting them for a fortune, when they could get into something no one else has for less than half the cost of the new one. Hope the bike gives you years of pleasure.

  • You should have welded the cut off frame ends with steel caps. Leaving the frame exposed like that is invitation for rust. You do not need water to go in there for it to rust. Atmospheric moisture would do the job.

  • There is something you should know about this particular model. It can't tolerate moving the forks up in the triples, it will cause a high speed wobble and cause a crash. This is a documented condition with this model, I'm dead serious. The clip-ons would have to go under the top triple and keep the tubes at stock height. Or create a tube bar clamp setup to go in the bolt holes for the original bars and leave the tubes at stock height. I'm completely serious. I was a shop foreman for a Yamaha dealer when these were new and Yamaha had special safety bulletins about it AND we had customers crash their bikes after doing it.

  • Despite mods were minor the overall effect is amazing. I had FJ600 with plans to change it into CR but that didn't work out - thank to you I can see how amazing It might look.

  • Great video mate, she looks awesome. a wee tip for you see you carb balancers get you self four wee adjustable inline screw valves and when the bike is running you can close them down to smooth the needles right out, it works a treat and you will get a far more accurate reading. Lovely bike though Sir.
