It came with a 3.00-19 front tire and a 110/90-18 rear tire. Stopping was achieved via dual disc in the front and a expanding brake in the rear. The front suspension was a Telescopic Coil Spring Forks while the rear was equipped with a Swinging Arm With Dual Dampers Adjustable For Preload.

1981 - 1983 Yamaha XJ 550[edit | edit source]
The XJ 550 was launched in 1981. The Yamaha XJ 550 Seca was also well-equipped, with features you’d expect only on bigger, costlier bikes: self-canceling turn signals; a clutch/neutral electrical interlock that prevented the Seca being ridden away with the sidestand down by killing the engine if you shifted into first before lifting the stand.
