There is a few things that could possibly cause this. First try disconnecting the cable and spinning it without restriction from the speedometer. If you still get the noise I would recommend lubricating the cable. Even if this isn't the problem it is a good practice to lube on a monthly basis. You now have to diagnose if it is nternal to the speedo. Unhook the cable from the speed sensor and keep it hooked to the speedo. spin the cable slowly with a drill or by hand and see if you are getting noise still from your speedometer. If so I would say it is a gear or internal issue . If not it could be your speed sensor. These are pretty much the only problems that can cause this. I would start with the cable and try it first. It is the quicckest and easiest.

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.

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.
