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.

Bike wont start, turn the key n everything lights up as normal, press the start button n just nothing


It could be the link from the starter button to the ignition coil. If you can check this for a current it should give an indication of the problem.

1982 yamaha maxim 400 will start, run for about a minute, then shut off. It wont re-start until i turn the key off and back on, then it starts right up, to repeat the problem.


Yes depending on the load just because you have water in the battery doesn't mean you don't have a shorted out cell in it. too much, and a spike or short in voltage will shut it down. a battery will only last you under good conditions on a bike will be 12 months. don't be a cheapskate get the battery checked and get you a manual for this bike it will help you in the long run. otherwise it sounds good. Also coils get hot and quit when they get hot and run when they cool. See a manual will help you troubleshoot it.

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.
