Yamaha Other description

You will be acquiring an awesome 1982 Yamaha Maxim 650
It ran fine when I bought it but decided to go ahead and have the carbs cleaned and totally overhauled.  New Petcock. Cleaned tank out.
Totally rebuilt the 'triple tree' with a rebuild kit. Handles like a swiss watch. New tires front and back. 
  Replaced valve cover gasket.
New rear brakes shoes.  New front brake pads.
Complete service beyond this-all fluids etc.
Over $750 spent.  
This loves to run and you can rev it to 9000 rpm as much as you would like.  Cruise all day at 70-80 mph.
Getting over 40 MPG mph on carb rebuild.
Ride it home!
All electrics work. Horn. Blinkers.

Mon, 09 Jan 2012

In past years, the biennial Auto Expo in India slipped under the radar while the industry was focused more on shows such as EICMA in Italy and Intermot in Germany.

We’ve already looked at India-produced Royal Enfield’s new Thunderbird 500 and Hero Moto’s hybrid scooter concept which debuted at the Auto Expo, and today we’ll look at what the major international OEMs presented.
