Remove the seat, put the petcock in the any position but "PRI". there is one bolt, remove it and wiggle the tank left and right while pulling backward. The fuel filter is inside of the tank,, just remove the petcock and it comes out with the petcock.

Remove the hoses from petcock...remove seat then you'll see one or two bolts on rear of tank....remove them....pull the tank backwards and then you can lift it off.

Slightly lift back of tank, and slide rearward, off rubber dampers attached to each side of frame at front of tank.

Hi, my yamaha maxim 650 will start but will not idle off choke or stay running off it or when i give it alot of gas. could it be the petcock? or the throttle adjustment screw?


Hi, Alexmacy and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel cap or fuel tank is not venting properly.
2. Fuel filter clogged.
3. Fuel line pinched or kinked.
4. Float needle and seat sticking.
5. Float level too low.
6. Carburetor bowl vent line clogged/blocked/pinched.
7. Idle adjusting screw set too low.
8. Air/fuel mixture screw set too lean.
9. Idle port, transfer ports, slow air jet clogged.
10. Slow fuel jet clogged.
11. Faulty fuel pump.
