SOURCE: yamaha maxim xj 700 1985 wont start

Check the wiring inside the headlight case--that's where the wiring for the bar controls are connected into the main wiring harness. Look for loose or corroded connections. Try to get the starter working correctly, then concentrate on getting the engine to run. No-run usually means either no fuel into the cylinders or no spark to ignite the fire. Make sure to keep the battery charged while running the starter for testing.

SOURCE: what kind of oil should i use for my 1985 yamaha maix xj 700??

Absent evidence to the contrary and based on the age of your machine, you should probably use 'normal' oil. I don't think you will gain any benefit from the use of the expensive synthetic. Your bike is air cooled? Air cooled engines are tougher on oil than are water cooled engines. Find out the recommended weight and service rating from Yamaha. Use that weight and service class at a minimum and a higher service rating if available. Go to to a good auto parts place, not the "fast food" version, and ask the counter guy and/or find a comphy seat in the oil asle and start reading the cans.

Let me know how you make out with this.

SOURCE: yamaha wiring

Check on ebay for a shop manual or Clymer manual. owners manual won't do any good. You can usually find one ranging from 3 to 35 dollars. Also check http://www.xjbikes.com/Forums.html. It is an excellent forum for free information on anything you want to know about your XJ.

Ride Safely, Ed

Wont shif into 2nd gear grinds


Normally the problem would be a bent shift fork and that may indeed be the problem. The shift fork is a part of the gearbox and works by sliding a gear with "dogs", (pins), left and right on a shaft so that it engages with another gear. If a fork gets bent it will travel left & right as normal but since the slider gear is out of position due to the bend the gears don't mesh properly, i.e. the slider gear doesnt quite reach far enough into 2nd gear for the two gears to mesh fully. This is not a repair for the novice.
