Most Yamaha models have 2 bolts holding the seat on, usually located between the top shock mounts and the side covers. You should be able to find them without too much trouble, but remember- they are metric. Hope this helps.

sounds like that chatter is your solenoid, not starter clutch. Try a jumper cable on battery and see if that doesn't work... make sure donor vehicle is used with their engine not running...next you need to fully charge your battery or buy a new one....good luck to you friend..Tim

SOURCE: no clutch
Yes this is evident in replacing engine oil to motorcycle engine.
Engine oil designed for automobiles isnt good for motorbikes as they offer additives for added "slipping". THis will cause your clutch to slip. Automobile Engine's oil system is separate from the clutch while motorcycle's clutch and engine fall under one oil system.
Use engine oil designed for motorcycles.
Solution: Buy and Engine flush, pour it to your crankshaft, run the engine for 5 minutes (idle) then drain. Replace with new motorcycle oil.

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.

It is on the back side of the flywheel for the magneto/generator. You will need to remove the left engine side cover then pull the flywheel. It does take a special puller to get the fly wheel off. Once you get the flywheel off, there are 8 allen bolts that hold it to the back side of the flywheel.
