It's not pretty, but it takes me places.

While Japanese, several of these do not seem to qualify for UJM status. The OP's bike and the Seca do, but not the rest. Hate to be a buzzkill, but...

Disagree, does not have to be 4cyl. It's not like Wiki is THE authoritative expert on things MC.

I had a VX800 once upon a time. Those are great bikes. I need to find some pics of it and get them on line... Mine was a 1990 model and it had the Krauser bags.

True, but my recollection is that the UJM moniker was pretty much exclusively used to describe standard motorcycles with inline fours due to their ubiquitous nature. I can remember going several years without hardly seeing any road bikes that weren't inline fours with mid controls and a flat dual seat. Strictly speaking, shaft drive itself keeps any of these from being a UJM, but none of that should be cause to derail the thread.

Then I'm sure you'll agree my Honda Pacific Coast qualifies. Shaft drive, Japanese. Yep, must be a UJM.

There were a shit ton of KZ400/440s, CB---s and XS---s twins that were made in the 70s and 80s. Those were made and sold at the very same time those 4cyl bikes were being sold.

My UJM Shaft drive dual range transmission

1983 Honda CB1000 shaft drive dual range transmission


UJM is the Honda CB750 design I4. Anything else is a copy of a Harley design or some other European manufacture XS650 twin, Honda CX500, Honda goldwing is a copy of BMW boxer design just add 2 cylinders. The Japanese original design is the I4.

I'll just strip it off or paint it with clear so you can't see it. That'll work!

Time for the OP to chime in. He should clarify his own definition of UJM and his expectations for this thread. I suspect he's on the I-4 team.
