Cool, they have a horrible reputation here, tx750's being the worst. Apparently all balancer and oil froth issues can be solved though.
Yeah,  it's the TX handle that gives everyone fits,  and it's all because of the 750. The 500 had the balance shady up high,  above the transmission.  Only real issue was that it was difficult to adjust the tension on the chain driving the balance shaft on the early models,  and of course there was the cylinder head cracking issue on those as well.  '76 and later were really nice.

Shaft. Balance shaft.

It took me some internal arguing, but I worked up the motivation to drag the bike out onto the porch (no power in the garage) to do some welding and grinding... I'm fairly certain I finally have room to fit the Honda cradle into the Yamaha frame now, and I finally got my swingarm stand lugs burned in. It's just a matter of mating the two frame pieces, now, and redoing the wiring harness before she gets cleaned up and painted.
