Yes....I would recommend finding parts on ebay. You just need to find the right size three speed rear hub. Measure your wheel and match it. These are vintage parts I am talking about not a derailer type of system. Although if you want to go that route you can as well. You will have to change the crank for that one and more work over all. The vintage shifing handlbars will be needed as well.

### Math Problem Help?

2 feet 8 inches is is 32 inches.

4,500 x 32 is 144,000 inches

divide it by 12 to to bring it back to feet. The answer is 12,000.

When working in feet, which have 12 inches, it is easier to bring to a single figure rather than using fractions. This is the benefit of the Metric system as everything is based on 10s and hundreds and thousands. Millimeters, Centimeters and Metres.

### 1984 had 32 degree rake instead of 29. one model had 2 inch over fork tubes. I added extra 6 degree rake (tripletree) and 6 inch over forks. still have the old clamp and fork tubes and would like to know...

You didn't say which model bike had the 32° rake with the 2" over fork tubes. This is what my book tells me for all the 41mm fork tubes:

1949-early 77 FL, FLH Fork tubes - Part #45950-48 length 20"

Late 77- 84 FLH, 1980-83 FLT, FLHT - Part # 45825-77A length 20 1/2"

1980-83 FXWG, FXD, Part # 45417-80 lenght 24 7/8"

This is all the information that I have. Hope it helps.

### What size npt thread is the adaptor

Common American National Standard Pipe Taper Threads
• NPT - National Pipe Thread Taper
• FPT - female (internal) National Pipe Taper threads
• MPT - male (external) National Pipe Taper threads
• NPTF - Dryseal American National Standard Taper Pipe Thread (ANSI B1.20.3)
For NPT threads a sealant compound or Teflon tape must be used for a leak-free seal. For NPTF no sealant is needed for a sealing.
Characteristics of NPT (also known as ANSI/ASME B1.20.1 Pipe Threads, General Purpose):
• tapered thread 1o 47'
• truncation of roots and crests are flat
• 60o thread angle
• pitch is measured in threads per inch
Note! Pipe sizes do not refer to any physical dimensions. The outside diameter of a pipe or fitting must be measured and compared to a table for size identification. A 3/4" NPT pipe thread has an outside diameter - OD - of 1.050 inches.
Each thread size has a defined number of threads per inch - TPI, or pitch. The 3/4" NPT pipe thread has 14 threads per inch. Both the TPI and OD of the thread are required for positive identification of thread size because more than one size have the same TPI.

NPT threads are not interchangeable with NPS - National Pipe Straight - threads.
NPT threads may look similar to ISO 7/1 threads. However, ISO and NPT threads should not be mixed. ISO threads have 55o taper angle versus 60o for NPT. The NPT root and crest configurations are also different from ISO. For ISO threads pitch is usually measured in millimeters (may be expressed in Inch). The pitch are different.

### Chain Broke on a Huffy Tundra 18 speed 26" bike. I need to know the size chain to replace or the master link/chain connector to fix the chain.

if the bike has gears it does not have a master link, that is for single speed bikes only.

You will need an 8spd chain for your bike (1/2" x 3/32), these will fit any 6,7 or 8 spd bike. This requires a special tool to install (\$8-\$25), I would recommend taking into a bike shop and have them do it if you have no experience with this type of chain.

Side note: if you do own the tool, you can repair a broken chain for a temporary fix in the future, so may be worth buying. Check around, many bike shops offer basic repair classes and cover this.

### Cylinder head torque spec

I am not that familiar with the Yamaha but this is what I could find in my research, I also asked my husband who is a bit more familiar and he said either call the shop and see if they will provide the info or purchase a manual at the shop or online for your bike. I am providing you with the info that I found and I hope that it will help you in your endeavor as I know it can be very difficult to locate some info that you desperately need sometimes.. Thanks in advance and I hope it helps. See below. Stormi

Cylinder;The cylinder shaped space (obviously) in an engine where the piston moves up and down to compress and explode fuel, which generates the engine's power.

TORQUE:The tendency of a force to cause an object to rotate. In an engine, the torque is expressed as the force applied multiplied by the distance from the center of rotation. It is the basic measure of the propulsive effect of a powered wheel. Or, said in other words: The measure of the force applied to produce rotational motion usually measured in foot-pounds or Nm. Torque is determined by multiplying the applied force by the distance from the pivot point to the point where the force is applied.

Max Torque
5.5 kg-m @ 7500 rpm

The Yamaha XJ650, also called the Maxim 650, was part of the Yamaha XJ series of high-performance, cruiser-class motorcycles. Yamaha manufactured the classic-style street bike from 1980 to 1983. The Maxim's design and horsepower-to-weight ratio made it a precursor to the modern sport bike.

Engine
1. The 1981 Yamaha XJ650 Maxim was powered by an in-line 653 cc, four-cylinder, dual overhead cam engine with eight valves. The air-cooled, four-stroke motor used four 32 mm Hitachi carburetors. Its bore and stroke measured 2.5 inches by 2.1 inches with a compression ratio of 9.2:1.
Chassis
2. The Cardan shaft-driven Yamaha Maxim had a five-speed gearbox. The air-assisted 1-inch (26 mm) front forks had 5.8 inches (147 mm) of wheel travel. The five-way adjustable spring preload rear suspension had 3.8 inches (97 mm) of travel. The bike had a hydraulic single-piston, single-disc front brake with an expandable drum rear brake. The Yamaha XJ650 had a curb weight of 509.3 lbs with a seat height of 30.7 inches.
Performance
3. The Yamaha Maxim generated 71 horsepower at 9,400 rpm with 39.8 foot-pounds (5.5 kg-m) of torque at 7,500 rpm. The bike's quarter-mile time was 12.6 seconds at 107 mph. Its top-end speed was 120 mph.

### In need of correct pilot screw setting for my zxr750 h2.. many thanks Andy

Rule of thumb for most bikes.
2 - 21/2 turns out from seated (not tight) position. Bike should run. Tune for max idle speed then turn down 1/4 to 1/2 turn. Should be ok.

### Falcon model 180 cassete removal

I went to local bike shop where the mechanic who shoved a cassette removal tool into the spline and turned it out. Turns out the bike was originally manufactured as a 6, rather than a 5 speed.

### Code 32 when wind blows

Hi and welcome to Fixya. I believe that the wind is affecting the draft. What I would recommend is to install a cap on the flue that is similar to a weather vane in that it rotates to block the wind from creating a downdraft in the flue. Some times depending on the direction and strength of the wind it will come up over the roof peak and then down the flue. A regular fixed cap may work too. You should be able to purchase one at your local hardware store. Please let me know if this was helpful. Good luck.
