According to the Yamaha TX7 manual ( yep, TX7 ), Yamaha DX7's with serial number 1001~24880 and 25125~26005 will have problems with the Aftertouch option, over MIDI.  This is because their operating system ROM's were programmed before MIDI was standardised across all manufacturers.   It is worth asking a potential seller for the serial number, before you commit.    One of my DX7's has an early serial number and it also struggles to send 'clean' System Exclusive data, making it more difficult to use with patch librarians.
