Yamaha XJ 750 RL

1984 XJ750 RL only made in 84' and only 884 ever made 601 of them shipped to canada and the rest to australia.

I had one of these four about 5 years up untill 2002 when I sold it to a friend to pay for a new bike I bought, as it turns out agood frien of mine has aquired the the bike and did a bit of research on it and here's what he found.

'1984 XJ750 RL only made in 84' and only 884 ever made 601 of them shipped to canada and the rest to australia.'

Now I'm wondering what the value of this bike might be, say fully restored.
I've always figured this thing might be a bit of a rarity as I've only ever saw two of them in past travels.
I've alway regreted selling it and now I think I would like to try and get it back, I do have a few things in my possesion that he's been wanting so I think a trade might be in order
I'll see if I can find a picture to post.

Thanxs
Russ

Nice Ride Russ!

Interesting comparing the differences between that & the FJ600 we got here back then........600 had mono-shock out back. I can also see a resemblance in the tail section to the FJ11/12's.

Simple, Straight-forward street bike.......I'd love to have one myself.

If I remember correctly the only reason that model has such a short run is that it was replaced by a 900 cc version.

Ever had any problems with your 1984 XJ750RL

My XJ750RL has suddenly developed a problem where once I have been riding for 15 to 20 minutes - it suddenly accelerates to maximum and won't stop? No obvious control issues - HELP!!??

Check for vacume leaks in and around the carb,mine was for ever sufering from vacum leaks before I sold it and would act up like you described.
Areas that I would check first would be around where the carbs attach to the cylinder head, the rubber connecting the carbs to the engine gets old and exposed to a lot of engine heat and they start to crack allowing air to bypass the carbs.
