Hi christina

They did build a XJ550 (in line 4, not V) in the early eighties, But that's the only road bike 550 that yamaha made. Check it out here.

Hope that helps solve your puzzle :)

My 1982 yamaha xz 550 vision keeps sputtering, whats the problem? example, i start in first gear, and as im accelerating the bike seems to jurk forward and sputter, could that mean there bad fuel...

This could also be caused by a faulty plug cap or coil.

Seeing that the coils are much easier to test than the carbys are to remove,strip,clean,re-fit,adjust mixtures & syncronize,I suggest you start there. (see my tip on how to test motorcycle twin coils-in tips & tricks).

Just to get an idea what is going in you could also try & remove both spark plugs & compare them to each other.
Is one black & sooty? - too rich- poor combustion
Is one oily?-- not firing or mechanical problem
Hope this helps
Regards Andrew

1984 Yamaha XJ 650 wont stay running

hi,this might help,the carbs off the 550 will have smaller idle (pilot) jets,this will not allow enough fuel through at idle,the main jets sound like they are reasonably close,i would pull apart the ones off the 650 and check the jet sizes and then compare them with the ones off the 550,you will probably find that the ones out of the 550 are way to small,change the jets over(if they are compatible..should be)and your problem will most likely go away...hope this helps...cheers

You cannot get replacement pistons, they are not avaulable form Yamaha, and there are no known equivalents.

Best bet is to get a wrecked bike.

My 2006 Harley road king shakes alot when standing

Shaking and vibration is normal for most Harleys, it's caused by the angle of the twins, it's normal for mostly all Harley motorcycles.

1989 yamaha 750 v twin gas to carbs but not to heads

Hi Jilline,
If the carbs have gas and the gas dont get into the sparkplugs this means the main jet and the pilot jet are clogged.
You will have to clean the carbs!
