        I've gotten so far. 1980 Yamaha XS650G, Model XS-G (xs650G) Year 79-80, Model Code 3G0, Engine number 3G0-001453. I have decoded and JYA4BB007G0A00143, but this is not correct. The 9th digit is (check digit) - 10th digit is model year. I really need to find an entire decoder for 9 digit VIN to 17 digit VIN. THANK FOR ANY HELP SOMEONE CAN GIVE ME.

      I hope you guys can help me. I have a 1980 Yamaha coils it won't start. I'm getting power to the ignition coils but no power to the spark plug wires and spark plugs. Does anyone have any ideas on how to solve this problem? I got the bike from a friend really cheap, but the electrical was all screwed up. But I think for the most part, I have it figured out.

      Hey there... you wrote on the one thread about XJ550 clutch cable routing and mentioned in your reply that you had instructions on the proper placement? (forums/threads/81-xj550-clutch-cable-routing.44605/). Would you be able to PM that to me? It would be really appreciated. Thanks!!

      How do I post a question or create a new forum under technical? I disassembled my starter to try and rebuild it, and noticed the magnets inside the main container are broke, like in pieces. No wonder it wouldn't crank properly. Anyways I need to post and ask where I can get an entirely new starter motor, or if there is anywhere I can get an aftermarket one, maybe an Arrowhead or something.

      I think my 86 maxim needs some coolant and it is hard to see the level. Where and how do I do this ? Thanks for any help.

      I was told that you were in the know with polished wheels.
      Do you have any pics of what they look like finished, and on the bike?

      Hey bigfitz! I was looking at the posts of your Seca 550. Beautiful job!! Did you paint the drum and caliper with a spray can paint or did you have a shop do it? The black front fender looks fantastic as well!!
      Where in SE MI are you from? I was born in Warren and raised in Troy.

      Hello, hoping you can lend me some advice. my engine has locked up so I decided to remove the timing cover and turn the engine over manually. It now seems to move freely but I have turned it over in the wrong direction and am wondering if there are any precautions I should take before attempting to fire it up. 1981 xj 650 maxim. Cheers
