Hi yzell247

Well I know its a pain but if it came off that bike, then it will go back on!!
If it came from another bike then the mounts could be different.
If its the same seat then something is getting in the way of the seat mounting, so ck for ur wiring an stuff like that to be in the way!!
Other than that is should go rite back on!!!

Good Luck

I am looking at buying a 400 Maxim, 1982. It looks new, very clean. Should i be worried about any mechanical problem that are consitent with this bike?

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.

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.

My seat on my 82' yamaha maxim 400 se will not open...

On my Maxim you unlock the tail box and this gives you access to the wing nuts that hold down the back of the seat. Hope this helps.
