Question about 1985 Yamaha XJ 700 X Maxim
I see in the pics in my Haynes manual showing a hose running from it. My bike is a 1982 MAXIM with a XJ750YICS motor. My bike idles @ about 1000 rpm but you can tell by the sound that its idling weak. I just changed the motor for one that with 7000 miles but I kept the carbs which I cleaned. I also have the timing parts and ignition system. I can get it running periodically after considerable coaxing but when it runs the power output fluctuates. any help is greatly appreciated
My 81 xj750 vacumm line attaches to a pip on the boot that attches it to the head. Have you investigated to diaphram in your fuel pet ****. I know mine had a small pin hole which made my idle weak at times. i even went as far as resynching the carbs and changing the plugs before i found it . just enough to bleed off vacuum . Hope that helps
