I'm guessing that the people on this board that know anything will ask to see the picture (I think you need more posts before you can post a...
here it is on Amazon UK https://www.amazon.co.uk/STP-GST72500ENP-Brake-Parts-Cleaner/dp/B009GKI88G
any automotive parts store should have it
Yeah. He said that a couple of posts above
I believe the starter button requires a good ground through the handle bars to work.
You might need to scuff up the the connection point of the...
if you actually had a full tank, then went 20 miles and now have an empty tank, you have a serious fuel leak.
It might have left gas on the ground...
I'd suspect the rear light is burnt out
my '82 Maxim has a keyless gas cap.
any screwdriver will open it
can we really trust a guy that can't spell "store"
(his store name is " motorpartsotre ")
if 50% of your income goes to taxes then you are a rich SOB
taxes are good, they pave the roads we ride on
This site suggests talking to Len (Chacal) at XJ4Ever (see the button top right of the page)
He has all the parts you'll ever need
now that everything works again. Did you get the Speedo working again?
maybe say all the things you've tried to get them to work.
hmmm Fortnine does not pass the sniff test for everything though
this turn signal doesn't look right :mad:
hopefully it's just the stock image...
and if you're not watching Fortnine youtube videos, you're missing out
otherwise ship to Blaine, Point Roberts or Sumas (whichever is more convenient for you)
Cross border pickup should cost around $4 or less and you...
we are weird up here. We have a loonie that is a dollar coin, then we introduced a new coin worth 2 dollars, we call it a toonie
so I called 1500...
1500 toonies equals USD 2200
I don't think you're looking at the right tire date codes.
Look for the DOT stamp
The date code should be 4 digits, first 2 digits are the week...
stupid thought, but you are talking about that running lights, but those only come on with the lights switch activated. Is the light switch on?...
Just came back from a nice sunny ride! And I used a GPS to gauge against my speedometer. The speedometer is wrong by around 25%. So 50 indicated...
Saw an ad for what the seller says is a "1982 Yamaha 750"
The signals look wrong to me, but what do you think it is?
there's a little sound here [MEDIA]
there are other videos as well, such as [MEDIA] but the sound quality is poor
I see that adapter mentioned a lot here. Why is the spin on so much better than the OEM solution?
my answers are Yes & No
I've sprayed up into the gauge as a last ditch effort before I tear into it.
Hey Bolakar, did you get this fixed? What did you do?
I'm having the same problem and have read most of the threads about the speedometer
I'm surprised no one has said anything about the no-start.
I'm a newb, but I thought headlight not coming on was a sign of a weak battery as the...
I'm getting an error when I click that link, and there are A LOT of threads about the clutch :)
in B.C. we have government mandated insurance (ICBC). I pay $400/yr for insurance and registration. It's only this cheap because it's a collector...
or use the screwdriver in your Yamaha toolkit (if you have it of course)
what is recommended for cable lube? I know cable lube sprays cans exist, but are they required, or is a dry graphite enough?
I went for a short 30min ride in the sun.
and now I know that the speedometer is not working right. Top gear at 4000 rpm said I was going 40mph....
Not a XJ, but I think $750 is a lot for this bike. I bought my running XJ for $1400...
have you tried XJ4Ever,.... the sponsor of this forum? Top right corner of this page
I used a gold sharpie on mine. Looks fine from 10 feet away :D
You could try scuba divers Anti-fog. I've used it, but not much better luck than you've had with shaving creme
I'm just glad you didn't say you were using WD-40
I found this quote;
"Machinist's Workshop magazine actually tested penetrants for break
I went and bought insurance today, $396 for a year. Very happy with that.
It was 10 degrees outside (50 degrees U.S.A.) and sunny
So I was pumped...
could a weak battery cause the tci not to fire, but fires when its warmer cause electrons love heat
also for the sound compare to my video showing it's noise and see the solutions in thread...
also make sure the camera head will fit into the spark plug hole. I bought one years ago but it's too big of a diameter to fit
as an example...
cool, I'm a newb here but at the top right corner of this page you'll see a banner for XJ4ever. He has all the parts you'll need.
He sponsors this...
It rains a lot here,and we sometimes get snow, but it also goes to 5 celcius (7 F)
The bike came with the service manual and I've downloaded...
taking it for a longer ride is not possible right now (explained below). I have taken for 3km of riding in the near month I've owned it....
Thanks for the reply!
I guess I should start with the basics and replace the spark plugs. Should I do the wires too?
I'm a newb and posting in the XJ Technical forum sounds wrong (at least I didn't post about me running out of gas), so I post here
The bike is...
WD40 is not a penetrating oil. It's good for dispersing water. As Xj550H said, PB blaster/Kroil
well, CAD $6/gal which is about USD $4.62/gal
still.. CAN $1.6/l is crazy. Norway is paying USD $2/l or about USD $7.50/gal
that is for the 1985/1986 Maxim-X (even though the URL implies 1982). Is that the same information for a 1982 Maxim?
yeah, he said PM him.
