    In need of some help getting in touch with HAP over on the maxim-x site. tried emailing but with no results with using the webmaster email. Im looking for a shim pool or suitable replacement for the under bucket shims on the 85 xj700x maxim. Starting to think its going to be easier dropping the valves and grinding stems down.
    on a side note will the needle and seat from the xj650x work on the 700? seam to find them cheaper.
    thanks for the help!

    There is no such thing as an xj650X that I know of.

    Jared, I have a small X-pool...what sizes do you need? I'll see if I happen to have them.

    pm me

    If you made a tyop, and were asking about the XJ750-X float needle being the same as the XJ700-X float needle, they are the same part.

    Jared86, welcome to the forum! Glad to see you working on the "X", I sure was schooled working on those shims with my "X", will take a airhead shim any day. I remember the cost of those too, not fun. Best of luck and hope you find what you need from Dave F.

    dowski68 also has a "X" you could PM them and see if they would do a deal with you.
