Question about 1985 Yamaha XJ 700 X Maxim
Im having trouble gettin the rotor off of the shaft, the seal is leaking behind it. Can anyone tell me how to get it off with out buying a tool i will never use again?
I bought a #17 metric bolt about 4 inches long to fit the threaded hole in the rotor which was revealed after removing the retaining bolt. Then I inserted a regular steel bolt with a diameter just smaller than the retaining bolt into the retaining bolt hole. It was a length that left the head of it just shy of reaching the threads in the rotor. Then begin threading the #17 bolt into the hole previously covered by the retaining bolt. It will come in contact with the head of the smaller bolt in the retaining bolt hole. Then continue to thread it in until the pressure pops the rotor off. Be ready because mine popped off and fell on the floor before I could catch it. I found similar instructions to this in the Haynes book for my xj750j Maxim which is also an 82. Sorry I didnt' see this post sooner. I assume you have remedied the situation already but may be this will help others.
