CharlesPerry's review of Yamaha XJ600S Diversion

“Great if basic bike”

Written on: 02/05/2018 by CharlesPerry (1 review written)

Go for a 1999 plus model (these are out there in great condition with low milage), and you get electric fuel pump (though still carbs), duel floating front disks and a few other modern touches. Mine is the 2000 model and has only 15k on it - looks and rides basically new despite being 18 years old. Starts first time every time - easy to maintaine as was the last generation of bikes to be built before the computers took over - it is the pinicle of the pre 2000's evolution of the 4 cylinder carbed japanese engine and incorporates all the 70's, 80's and 90's reliability and learning that went into that evolution of that line. It is every inch the Yamaha hence it is well built and robust - anyone who has ever ridden or owned a Yamaha will know what I mean by this. Comfortable enough for comute or distance - it wont shoot you into space but will perform if pushed and certainly keeps up with and can outperform most cars. It is intuitaive and easy to ride. This is a cheap, reliable ride for riders of all levels and I would recomend it if you dont want to blow thousands on a new machine.
