You need to do basic diagnoses - 1 compression test,should be better than 130 lb and if in good order around 170 and all cyclinders within 14lb. 2 - check and make sure you have spark at all 4 spark plugs. 3- check and make sure you have fuel in carbies by undoing drain screw in each bowl, if above 3 all ok you probably have stale fuel and will need to remove carbs and clean out jets. this model also suffers from worn butterfly shaft through carbs which creates air leak and the manifolds to the head also leak and **** air.

Change oil and, filters regularly; lube the throttle cables and, all moving parts drain the fuel tank and, replace the fuel filter every year, or; when needed. never leave fuel in the bike when you store it without using "stabil" only check your ignition with a timing light get a maintenance schedule from the bike's manufacturer and, follow it.

My yahama maxim 650 wont full start running but it sounds like it wants too


Hey Nick, unfortunately it could be several things. As Tom Diffin mentioned carb gummed up or even bad fuel from sitting all winter. If your positive the spark plug is firing (pull plug, connect to plug wire, place within a couple mm of a metal bolt, CAUTION: hold with insulated pliers so you don't get shocked, bump starter and watch for a spark) then try a very small squirt of fuel (starting fluid would be great) into the park plug hole and replace the plug. Try to start if the engine fires and then dies you have narrowed it down to carb, fuel or timing. FYI get a motorcycle repair or operators manual that describes how to winterize your bike for long storage (check library, you can read for free and make a photo copy of a page cheap). Keep us updated and good luck.

I need a diagram of the vacuum lines on a 1983 yamaha maxim 650


The only vacumn lines on a Maxim 650 is the small line from the fuel petcock that turns it on when there is intake suction. It can be connected to any intake manifold But is usually connected to cyl. # 2 left to right. The 4 vent hoses to the carb tops just hang down the back of the motor.

No spark to spark plugs. Trying to restore old bike, if I can get it to start. 1982 Yamaha Maxim 750 YICS


That bike has two coils that often go bad, and also it has a semi solid state breaker ignition system that often causes problems. You should join a site for Yamaha maintenance, where you can partake of the members knowledge. see: http://www.yamahaclub.com/forums/topic/8640-1982-yamaha-maxima-650/

I have a 1982 650 yamaha maxim...when i turn my key on the head light comes on sometimes and then sometimes it doesnt and the bike wont start but i pulled a plug and dumped gas in the hole and it tried to...


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.

1982 XJ 650 maxim cylinder 2 & 4 won't run


Are you saying that 2 & 4 got gas with external tank but not with gas tank? If so something else has happened ,if gas is getting to the carb it cannot by-pass 2 to get to 1. Take the tank back off ,connect to external, again. See what happens.
