There are rings on the pistons that could be worn or it could be a valve stem seal that is leaking. The only way to tell is a cylinder leak down test.

SOURCE: how much and what type of oil

I have a 1985 Maxim XJ700NC There is a window on the side case for proper oil levels when the bike is on the center stand. The only recommended oil should be Yamalube 20-40. Do not use automotive oils. There is a slight difference in the makeup of the oil as the bike is oil cooled, and you have a "Wet Clutch". The energy conservation oils have emulsions in them that will ruin your clutch plates.

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

I have had the same problem with my bike, but found out that the jets were wrong and had to down size two times and now i have had no problems starting up or if i have stalled the bike it only takes about kicks to get it running again.

1985 yamaha maxim x wont start back fires and dies will run on starting fluid tho


Hi, Broken419 and the usual suspects are:
1. Severely discharged or a damaged battery, should have 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a load test if necessary.
2. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
3. Faulty main circuit breaker and or connections.
4. Faulty ignition coil and or connections.
5. Faulty spark plug, oil or gas fouled, wrong heat range or service type, wrong gap, loose in the cylinder head, broken electrode or insulator.
6. Faulty spark plug cables, leaking or broken, internal damage.
7. Faulty ignition module, switch, CKP, MAP, CMP, sensor and or any connector in the ignition circuit could have corroded, loose, or broken pins/sockets
8. Burnt exhaust valve or air leak in the exhaust system.

1985 yamaha maxim 700 i want to know the firing order.i am not sure wich plug cable goes to witch plug


Check each plug wire for a number one through four. This is ususlly a small band with the number printed on it. As seated on the bike, the cylinder farthest left is number one and proceeds to the right with the cylinder on the far right being number four. Arrange the wires accordingly.

Oil capacity?


Should be 3.5 Liters / quarts with the filter change. Put in 3 liters then top up as needed to get the level to the top of the viewing window.

To check your oil, bike should be level, on it's center stand, engine should NOT be running!

Any oil viscosity between 10w30 and 20w50 will work just fine. Smaller numbers if the weather's cooler and/or you only do short rides. Bigger numbers for hot weather and longer rides.

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...!!
