SOURCE: How do you determine the required oil level of the drive shaft?

there is a sight glass about the size of a nickle directly below the filler plug ,oil level should be midway or close to the top,you should see the oil level in the glass window,if not you'll have to remove the cover and clean or replace the sight glass window....

Does a pit **** ever go bad or just cleaned?


I'm going to guess that "pit ####" meant petcock :-) and yes they do "go bad" in a number of ways. There is a diaphragm inside which can crack over time. There is also a diaphragm return spring which may break (I've seen only one like that though). But most often, the use of fuel with ethanol in it will cause the breakdown of the plunger seal. When that happens, the petcock "leaks".... not externally but internally. The Maxim-X has a vacuum operated petcock which is supposed to only provide fuel to the carbs when set to PRI (prime) or when set to ON while the engine is running. When the engine is off, there should be no flow of fuel. But the damaged plunger seal allows fuel to flow from the gas tank to the carbs at all times, even when the engine isn't running. When you combine that leak with a leaky float valve, the result is usually a crankcase full of gasoline - clearly not good. If you'd like to know all there is to know about the XJ700X / XJ750X petcock, visit the following page on the Maximum Maxim-X web site:

There are also some helpful tips for rebuilding the petcock here:

Hope that helps.

Won't Idle. Fuel from overflow.


Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Damaged or restricted fuel tank venting system.
2. Loose float bowl screws.
3. Damaged float bowl o-ring.
4. improper fuel level in the float bowl.
5. Worn or dirty inlet valve or seat.
6. Damaged or leaking float assembly.
7. Particle contamination in inlet fitting cavity.
