XS750 Yamaha Cafe build process
750 Yamaha Triple Café racer

1979 XS750 YAMAHA 3 CYLINDER CAFE RACER. My objective when I decided to build a Yamaha XS750 Triple Café Racer was to make it look like it came from the factory after I was done, and basically..... improve on the looks, cornering, braking and keep it ride able and reliable. The build started out with a Photoshop Concept and a CAD drawing, that way I new what the desired finished product should look like. The engine was left pretty much stock except for the velocity stacks and the Exhaust system. Reliability and driveability was the main objective. A 3 into one header with an Emgo universal megaphone muffler. I don't know who the manufacturer of the Exhaust pipes was, but they are 1 3/8" primaries with a 2 inch 3 into one collector. I added the megaphone muffler. This Exhaust combination produces lots of low end torque and is great for around town riding. The XS750 Yamaha gas tank was lengthened 3 1/2" and painted with a Duplicolor Paintshop Sublime Green, Topped of with a 2K clear. The gas tank and tail section graphics mimic the OEM XS750 Yamaha graphics from the period. The stock seat tail section was utilized to maintain the 1979 XS750 Yamaha OEM look. A LED taillight, brake light and license plate light were integrated into the tail section to give the rear end a clean uncluttered look. Stock seat pan was shortened and narrowed and a custom seat cover was sewn on my 1958 model Singer sewing machine. There is an an inner rear fender (to keep road dirt and rain off the engine), and a compartment behind the side covers for a full tool kit so I can do emergency roadside repairs if necessary. I used a Ballistic Lithium Iron battery because of its small size, light weight and great cranking power and located it under the seat tail section. A custom made wiring harness powers all the electrics. A KOSO DB-02R digital speedo and tach unit was molded into the OEM XS750 Yamaha headlight bucket . VFR750 HONDA 41mm front forks and triples. VFR750 Front brake calipers. Honda SF400 front rotors. XS400 YAMAHA 18" front wheel. Front fender is off a Honda CM250. Rear brake utilizes a Yamaha R6 rotor, caliper, caliper bracket, master cylinder, and a modified XS750 caliper stay. Avon AM26 Roadrider tires. The original XS750 Yamaha Rear sub frame was removed and replaced with a custom fabricated sub frame so as to raise the seat height and create a more open look under the seat and between the rear wheel and to accommodate the rear shocks which were leaned forward to 45 degrees. Rear shocks are fully adjustable for rebound and compression. One of the great features of the Yamaha XS750/850 is the shaft rear chain to adjust or chain lube to clean off the rear wheel. Total wet weight was reduced from 530 lbs to 440 lbs, a weight savings of 90 lbs. All fabrication, machining, painting and graphics were done by me in my 2 car garage, no outside professional services were utilized. Custom made fiberglass side cover/number plates were designed and fabricated from scratch. The number plate graphics are a tribute to my favourite Moto GP rider...9 time world champion Valentino Rossi.
