Yes. The positive "brown" will be used to jump the blue wire with the key on.
The ground "black" follows the harness and is through the mounting...
Been on this forum for about 10 years, maybe someday I should get started on that.....
Got a 911cc build planned for next winter. For now just...
Thanks for the compliment.
I did see specs showing an 18" rear, but some noted a 130/70 17"? (must have been incorrect).
Don't know if the 17"...
I wonder if FZR600 17" rims would be an option?
I used an 85 VMax 18" rim on my Maxim X, that dropped the original tire size down from a 19":
Needless to say it was a huge undertaking...
Sounds like the floats in the carbs are stuck open.
You should check another forum that is geared more toward your model:...
Something tells me you like green.
I remember going through the Seca X thread of yours and am still amazed you pulled that off....
I've been using these JIS bits and a 1/4" drive ratchet for all my carb disassembly....
Got it on the calendar Dave, and hopefully be a bit warmer this year.
What he means is that your safety is more important than style.
Trouble is the needle warps over time from the sun, and rubs the inside of the glass lens. And you will likely see evidence of hazing in that...
You did say your color choice would be unique, and that it is.
$8.99 on Amazon:
Funny how the 700 Air-cooled and the Maxim X...
.........and also do the same with the "5valve" trim pieces (if they're still on it).
The oil light will come on when pushing the starter...
I know one that's universally recognized..........but more likely used after an idiot does something stupid.
I find the exploded parts views helpful:
If there is any stud left...
18 lb./ft. with locktite.
Assembly will definitely go a lot quicker when you get the manual.
What are the 9 digits on the cover behind the oil fill cap? Might be a 1986 engine in a 1985 frame.
Also, a couple of troubleshooting...
Quite daring to be undertaking an overhaul like that without having a factory manual.
Doesn't the Haynes manual have the spec?
Yamaha manual has...
K & S makes some nice DOT ones in two-wire (for the rear) and three-wire (for the front).
They're a bit more than some of the cheap ones...
Looks like a great source for you. Wonder if my friend with an RZ350 that needs a resto knows about them?
BTW, I'm seriously thinking about...
What color do you have in mind for it?
CT now has it set up where you can transfer "ownership" by getting a bill of sale and completing an affidavit on any vehicle 20 years old or...
Looks like a Virago 920.
They are in high demand for custom builds and probably the larger displacement has a factor.
Here's a Greg Hageman...
Well it can handle it, and the results will give you a great base to prime and paint.
So here's a pic of the FZX after a professional media blast:...
The ZRX is definitely an iconic bike, and wanted you to be aware of the listing below....
Wow, not bad.
I think hogfiddles just added another one of those to his collection too.
A message would be a good place to start,
but I agree with k-moe's suggestion, and review the info in his link provided above first.
The "15R" in your shorty VIN is the model code.
A long time ago I had bookmarked a huge PDF file that shows you have a US spec...
Get a "New" to you Seca 900?
O'Reilly's was my source for the NGK plugs for my FZ10. Found them there "in stock" after doing a cross-reference. The ones through Yamaha were on...
Well maybe if I hit the lotto someday.
Here's a vid of it running:
Wouldn't be road legal in the US though.
Seems like it's in awesome shape, but I'd be cautious if the bike doesn't have legit documents.
Here's a snap shot of a 700X I built from the...
The #3 is the toughest plug, right behind the thermostat.
Like you pointed out, needs a few cosmetic details, but shouldn't be a deal killer.
Looks like a fairly nice bike. Definitely harder to find these days as they only had a 2 year (in the US) run like the Maxim X.
That's looks to be a real nice example of a Seca 650. If your not familiar with them it was a one year only model (in the US), so not as common as...
Wow, very nice Dave!
To me it looks like the majority of the damage is on the tank and fairing.
Still run and ride OK?
And the frame, carbs, gauges, wiring harness.
Welcome aboard Paul and more good Maxim X info on this site too:
Me neither. Starting a conversation with you on the fender.
No, I don't. I mentioned you needing one because of the pods on the X you just got today.
I believe it does. Nice find.
One of the other members is looking for a backrest for one. Maybe you could part with it and help him out?
Dug out the fender I had stashed away and tried to "start a conversation"with you but your mailbox is full. You'll need to leave the...
Shaft drive is the main reason I love the Maxim X.
It's the only Yamaha that combines it with the 5 valve Genesis engine.
Interesting stagger on the jets.
On a side note, the Fazer 700 has a unique airbox inlet tube set up that requires 102.5 mains on 1 & 4 and uses...
Like the idea of the optional adjustable dampening offered, and would have to make sure I don't get ones too stiff.
I would be looking to upgrade...
Bike looks awesome! However, I don't think my old rear end could live with a seat that thin though?
Like the white lettering on the Roadriders...
I've had very good luck using the Caswell on two tanks.
My spare Fazer tank has pinholes as well, and you reminded me, I should do that one...
Well lots of current going through that connector and if it gets corroded, creates a high resistance point, then heats up and melts.
Switch me over to the confirmed side as I've gotten everything set on my end.
Looks like the weather may be identical to what we had last...
Actually had the same issue on mine a few years back. Turned out to be the wires melted together at the connector for the ignition switch....
