Question about 1985 Yamaha XJ 700 S Maxim
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

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.....

there is not much difference between those 2 engines. they are the same cc and both are in-line 4 cylinders.

there is a flasher on the side of the bike near the starter cylinoid and that is what allows your lights to flash you may need to just replace it

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 www.maxim-x.com and the lesser known FTP site for the Maximum Maxim-X web site at www.maxim-x.com/pix
