That would be an X1 yamaha fairing. Fairly rare, that is my exact bike. I really want one of those fairing, i think it makes it look like a fighter jet

I believe they were sold on the bike. Ive only ever seen that exact fairing on the 650 maxims. However if you look closely at turbo secas and full tour package secas/maxims, there are many similarities

I stand corrected, the bike in that pic is an xs11. Judging by the dual front discs

Hmm must be a 750 max. I didnt think they had the bulging right side crankcase cover tho, and the starter/ alternator positioning in the pic of the left side is all wrong for an XJ

Well theres the answer. Just like the 400cc maxim, the 1100 is technically an XS not an XJ

Yeah the terminology they used for their various models is confusing. I dont believe there were 650 or 750 XJ "specials" only in the 400 and 1100 XS models. But they still attached the maxim names to them as well, at least on some of the side covers. And i think the 1100 was only made for a few years ending in 81

Im really into early 80's yamahas right now haha especially the inline 4 models. Never been on an 1100 though theyre pretty rare around here
