Question about 1984 Yamaha FJ 1100

1 Answer

Engine revs to full throttle when starting 1100 Yamaha maxim

I recently bought an 82 maxim that ha dno spark. Fixed that. Finally got it to fire up but it revs out of control. I have to hit the kill switch seconds after it starts. The throttle cable and operation looks normal. The carbs were supposed to be rebuilt. Not positive they were. It seems like its must be getting way too much fuel.

Any ideas? Choke also looks to be operating like normal. This is the 4 carb inline 4.

Thank you,

More likely too much air - runaway revs is indicative of too lean, not too rich. Regardless, it is your carbs causing the problem - strip them down and look - for peace of mind on an 82 bike, I would throw a rebuild kit at them.

Just broke its second pinion shaft i drive case at shoulder of thread first time it did it was under warranty


Sounds like tuning problems.
Yamaha cautioned on this.
First, make sure the engine remains in a good state of tune, valve clearance, carb sync, idle speed (STOCK, 1000~1100 rpms) idle mixture.
Then starting procedure, full choke no throttle when cold, do not try to rev it until the engine gets some heat in it.
