I've always liked the TX750, and from what I hear the bike was great if you didn't live at the top of the rev range and kept up on routine maintenance. The balancer adjuster was also needed. A shame a little more development wasn't done before original release. I went to talk to the Yamaha Dealer in my old hometown recently, (I moved many years ago) We talked about the old days, reminisced about DT1's and XS's, when the talk turned to TX750's his facial expression said it all. That bike cost Yamaha and the local dealers a lot of money. I love the TX for it's uniqueness, but his experience was a lot different than mine!
