SOURCE: 1985 Yamaha XJ700 Maxim won't work

All engines need the same three to four things to work correctly..
Compression, Fuel, Spark, (timing).... But, usually those bikes, have fuel issues. The fuel tank spigot has a vacuum controlled valve which when the engine is cranked, suction is applied and fuel then can flow. Second,, the needle and float in the carb tend to get gummed up along with the main and idle jet... You need to make sure the carb is maticulously clean, Using carb cleaner, and tag wire,, or a piece of fine wire ( be careful not to enlarge the tiny holes). Keep refering to the 3-4 list fuel, compression, Spark,,,timing.....
Good luck...!!

SOURCE: 1985 Yamaha xj700 Maxim- Carb. fuel lines

yes, the breather line hooks to the petcock on the line facing the back, the fuel line hooks to the larger one. the line from the breather is actually a vacume line that turns on the fuel, without it you will not get fuel out of the petcock unless it is in the prime position.

SOURCE: Carburetor on yamaha xj700 maxim x

Actually, they're not Hitachi carbs. Since you have a 1985 "Maxim-X", the model number is actually XJ700XN. The XJ700 does indeed have Hitachi carbs but your bike, the XJ700XN Maxim-X has BS33 Mikuni carbs.

Careful with the model number, the XJ700 and the XJ700X are entirely different bikes.

By the way, if you want more answers about your Maxim-X, feel free to visit the "Maximum Maxim-X" web site at www.maxim-x.com and the lesser known FTP site for the Maximum Maxim-X web site at www.maxim-x.com/pix

SOURCE: Where and how do i check the oil on my 1985 Yamaha

Put your bike on the high stand and thn check the oil level at the right handside cover just above the brake pedal. It should be fully covered with oil.

Change gear oil 1981


Drain is on the bottom of the drive shaft. Fill is on the side of the drive shaft. Fill the shaft drive assembly to the bottom of the threads of the fill hole. Takes about 200-300ml.

Where to changer or check gear oil on 2002 vstar classis 650


The gear oil is the final drive oil - on the back wheel it's the hub assembly that the drive shaft ties into. There's a bolt at the top of it for filling and one at the bottom to drain. You should drive the bike a little to warm the oil, then you can drain the oil through that lower plug. I usually open the filler one on top while draining and I pour some fresh gear oil in to kind of flush it. Then install and tighten the drain plug. Fill with fresh oil right to the top of the filler plug. Some drain plugs are magnetic to pickup metal debris (normal) so clean that off when you have it out.

How to service drive shaft on yamaha 650 vstar


Remove the drain plug at the bottom of the rear hub ( have oil pan ready in place so oil doesn't drip on back tire. Remove the bolt on the side of that hub unit then replace the drain plug. Fill the hub unit with a hypoid gear oil (80w90) to the top of bolt hole. Then replace bolt. Do this every 3000 miles.

5. Vacuum line to fuel valve cracked, broken, pinched, or missing*

1985 Yamaha Maxim XJ700 not starting


It seems the float chamber of the carbs are not getting enough fuel (gas).
Try to check this first by opening the carburator float chamber drain screws....thn select the petcock to 'prime' positon and see if theres fuel running out of those drain screws freely.If not thn it time to clean the carbs.
Not bad too to remove the spark plugs and clean them and regap.
Hope this helps!
