Question about 1985 Yamaha XJ 700 X Maxim
There are two lines coming out of the fuel petcock (shut-off valve). The small diameter one is a vacum line that connects to the top of the rubber intake located between the carb and the engine head. you should notice that all four intakes have a vacum port in this location and they should all be capped excet one - usually #2.
The second line of the fuel petcock is the larger diameter one, and is the fuel line. Make sure you install an in-line filter if it has been lost. The fuel line connects to the carb on a pipe that feeds all four carbs. The pipe is located on the lower portion of the carb, down by the float bowls. There will be a connection port between #2 and #3 (right in the middle of the carb assembly). It will be difficult to see when everything is assembled and even more dificult to reach.
