    headlight is not blown...original post said that. thank you.

    Was needing more specific, like step by step tests of relays, etc. to find the bad part. Suspect now that the headlight relay may be bad after all, so would like to bypass that...how? Also, where exactly is the neutral switch on this bike? Neutral light is not illluminating now and I've checked that bulb - maybe this is tied in with the headlights/meters problem?

You have to check for grounds to where the wirings are routed. This will give you an idea where the power us cut off. If relay is okay, you may want to check on the fuses if they have one individually.

else reworking your wiring will pin the issue down but will consume time due to re-harnessing.

    get a compact 12v battery.

    set negative and positive to a clip tester.

    remove the bike battery.

    now set the negative and the positive charge of the compact battery to the relays and see if the circuit will run

No low beam headlights hi beam okay fuses 11, 16 okay relay hdlp lo/hid okay bulbs seem okay


Did you check low beam fuses for voltage, with headlamps on lo beam? Use a testlite to check for voltage. In the diagram you see the lo/hid relay, correct? I'm not saying the relay is faulty, you need to check voltage and ground. The bcm and dimmer switch are involved, I don't know if check for headlamp/lighting trouble codes will help? Don't replace anything unless your testing points in the direction.

Fuse seems okay but no head light but there is bright and park light


could be blown headlight on low beam filaments in globe.
other possible causes - headlight relay
check if there is voltage at the relay coil being switched thru. if not the headlight switch could be faulty. get a piece of insulated wire - strip the ends and bypass the relay by passing the +ve voltage wire to the headlight side. this replicates the relay function. thus testing if switch is faulty in providing power to relay coil.

I have a 1982 650 yamaha maxim...when i turn my key on the head light comes on sometimes and then sometimes it doesnt and the bike wont start but i pulled a plug and dumped gas in the hole and it tried to...


I am almost sure there is a relay that is tied into that starter system that cuts the headlight when starting, I think you have a loose connection somewhere, my advise is to get a schematic for that bike and start from there.

Engine revs to full throttle when starting 1100 Yamaha maxim


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.

My 82' yamaha maxim 400's seat wont openhelp meoppen it


i have this bike too. There's a small compartment on the back, you need a key to open it. There's a little sliding bit that hides the keyhole. open that up, there's two wingnuts holding the seat on.

Your bike may be different, there's several different versions of this bike that i've seen. This is how it works on mine.
