1983 Yamaha XJ Maxim 750. Rear tire rubbing on driveshaft

I have 83 maxim 750. It rode great till today. I noticed the rear tire rubbing against the drive shaft. Is there any adjustment for this, or is the wheel ruined? I seems to be rubbing evenly as if the wheel is straight just to rubbing badly. the category is wrong, there is no selection for an 83 Maxim 750

    Please cease from contacting these fake hackers who ripp you off your money, no hacker will just ask for money first. i was ripped off allot of time because i needed to hack into my girl's
    facebook and email, finally i got in contact with a friend in England
    who hired a team to do her private investigation on her man. she told me
    They might also be able to do my work so i contacted ""
    they helped me hack into my woman
    facebook smoothly, hacked into her emails and cell phone.the sweetest
    of all is that they show proof and doesnt just screams about money like the other rippers.. I know is hard to come across legit hackers but they are good at what they do.. mentioning my
    name ( Healo) would make them respond and treat you better as we are now close.
    Just tell them you are from me. They also involve in so many other hacks like
    facebook, whatsapp, bank, credit card, almost unbelievable..

SOURCE: 1985 Yamaha XJ700 Maxim won't work

All engines need the same three to four things to work correctly..
Compression, Fuel, Spark, (timing).... But, usually those bikes, have fuel issues. The fuel tank spigot has a vacuum controlled valve which when the engine is cranked, suction is applied and fuel then can flow. Second,, the needle and float in the carb tend to get gummed up along with the main and idle jet... You need to make sure the carb is maticulously clean, Using carb cleaner, and tag wire,, or a piece of fine wire ( be careful not to enlarge the tiny holes). Keep refering to the 3-4 list fuel, compression, Spark,,,timing.....
Good luck...!!

SOURCE: Carburetor on yamaha xj700 maxim x

Actually, they're not Hitachi carbs. Since you have a 1985 "Maxim-X", the model number is actually XJ700XN. The XJ700 does indeed have Hitachi carbs but your bike, the XJ700XN Maxim-X has BS33 Mikuni carbs.

Careful with the model number, the XJ700 and the XJ700X are entirely different bikes.

By the way, if you want more answers about your Maxim-X, feel free to visit the "Maximum Maxim-X" web site at and the lesser known FTP site for the Maximum Maxim-X web site at

Smoking and burning rubber smell coming from around right rear tire

ok jack up the right rear tire look at the inside ot the tire as you slowly rotate the tire also look for any signs that something is rubbing against the tire. if you must remove the tire and check to see if the spring in the strut is broken and rubbing against the tire. I ran into this problem before and the spring in the strut was broke shifted against the tire and caused it to rub the tire causing smoke. let me know we will keep trying to find the cause

How do i get the back tire off my 1982 vf 750 sabre??

put bike on support stand or jack up rear wheel. remove small plastic cover on the left side swing arm and remove nut that anchors brake drum housing to the swing arm support. remove the rear brake linkage from the rear drum. remove the axle nut and slide out axle shaft from axle housing. Be careful to notice the position of the spacer and washers. the installation is the same as removal. be sure to re-adjust the rear brake linkage. If adjusted properly prior to removal it might help to mark the position of the nut on the linkage before removing.

Having a noticable womp womp coming from the rear

This is not an 'ASUS Z71' question.

Got a flat tire?

Or, a tire with a flat spot?

Or, got something (nails, rocks) wedged into the tire-treads?

Got worn brake-pads that are rubbing?

Got a bad expansion-cylinder inside the brake, causing the pads to rub against an out-of-round brake-drum?
(If you drive a few miles, and then touch each wheel, is one wheel is noticeably warmer than the rest?)

Adjusting rear suspension

the rear shock is adjustable, the ring below the spring turns and locks onto a kind of peg on the body of the shock. being that your bike is an 86 it may even be time for new shocks or an upgrade to stiffer. if you do adjust then make sure both sides are on the same setting. as far as tools needed some shocks can be done by hand with help from someone lifting the weight up on the back end. i dont know what kind of tools as i cant find a good pic online of your bike but maybe a C spanner / wrench
