1983 Yamaha XJ900 Seca-SST with RaceTech replacement suspension
RaceTech Gold Value and RaceTech shocks installed on 1983 Yamaha XJ900 Seca-SST. First test ride through the twisties, on rippled, and beat up roads. The bike likes to flick in to corners, rock solid on undulating road surfaces, and the wallowing is cured.
1983 Yamaha XJ900-SST--Jig built for SST #2
1983 Yamaha XJ900 Seca SST #1 is being rebuilt after a minor get off. While
fairing is out for paint my brother-in-law built a jig so we can build
SST's for customers. SST #2 is shown after jig was used for fitment of
brackets for welding. We engineered the fairing from 1982/83 Yamaha XJ650
turbo Seca to fit on the 83 Yamaha XJ
900. By so doing we have named our work SST for Standard Sport Touring.
The Yamaha 900 Seca can easily be converted back to stock form if desired.
