Sorry to say it, but these old Yamaha's are usually littered in junkyards (er, SALVAGEyards). I found 10 in my local "yard".

Online searches. There seems to be a website for every motorcycle out there.....

There is a Yahoo Group for Yamaha XJ motorcycles (Secas and Maxims). I have an '82 Seca 550 and have gained some useful info on parts, etc from that group. Hope this helps you out.

Nice Duuke you got there. I was just at a local Euro MC shop and looked at a lime green one. That bike must rip. I have a 600 dual sport and it's a blast. I wouldn't sell it fer nothin'.

I actually like my DS better than any bike I've ever had. I like to be able to go anywhere (almost).
