After about 10 thor miles the valves need to be adjusted and more so if the bikes bin run hard. The carbs may need to be cleaned if the beke has sit alot/ The cabs have power valve daiphrams and they can cost 80 bucks each and there are 4 of them. if they leak it'll use alot of gas and stumble at steady speed. 82 is old so old bike sytdron. Cables and seat covers can add p to some money so look at it all as something that looks simple may have a big price that do it your self won't do.

I have a 1982 Maxim 650 that is stuck in 2nd gear. Does anybody have any ideas?


There is a small spring that returns the shift mechanism to a neutral position that has probably broken or become unhooked. The same problem can happen if upon reassembly the shift activator gears slide past each other and no longer twist the mechanism. Either way you should be able to look at the mechanism and spring by taking off the shift lever and removing the engine cover behind the lever. The cover. http://www.bikebandit.com/houseofmotorcycles/1982-yamaha-xj650j/o/m8214#sch227044 The mechanism and small spring (part#2) http://www.bikebandit.com/houseofmotorcycles/1982-yamaha-xj650j/o/m8214#sch227724
