1983 Yamaha XT550

Recommended Posts

I owned a new 1983 XT-550K back in the day.

Bought it brand-new for $1,800 if I remember.

Prices have gone up a tiny bit. :bonk:

Power and torque from the XT-550 is very healthy, and the bike runs like any other big thumper in the 600cc range from that time period.

That is:

Strong low- and mid-range torque with good horsepower as the revs rise.

Not a modern motocross bike on the top end as far as horsepower and how quick the revs build, but excellent for all-around use like street riding and trail riding and dirt road sliding.

Advice:

Going off-road a lot?

Put on some new off-road tires.
