Hi and welcome to the site,

Initially, by "won\'t kick over", do you mean the starter will not turn? If yes, check the starter relay. To locate the starter relay, follow the cable from the battery's + terminal.

If on the other hand, the starter will spin but engine will not catch, then check for presence of spark on the plugs.

Good luck and thank you for asking.

How do I check the oil level and add oil to an 83 yamaha maxim?


look down low on the right side of the engine, their is a "sight glass" that you will be able to see the oil level, tilt the bike a bit and you can see the oil, leave the bike on the regular kick stand and if you can see the oil in the glass the level is fine, above that is the oil fill cap, that is where you put the oil, i think your bike holds 2500 cm of oil, that is about 2 and 2/3 quarts of oil. remember that motorcycle oil is different than regular car oil, this is a common mistake which also leads to the clutch plates sticking together after a bike sits a while.

I have an '83 yamaha midnight maxim 750. All of my turn signal lights come on properly, but they do not blink. I'm not sure if there is an external relay or if it is part of the switch.


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
