    Did you check the valve clearances and compression? Good place to start there. I always start with the big 3: fuel, air, and compression

    I just recently emptied the tank to try and get rid of the old fuel I cleaned out the air filter and that's about it so far spark plug check was next and compression check after that

    Edmonton riders eh..
    I'm up in GP, and I just joined the forum for some info on my 82' Maxim 750.
    I'm always on the look out for good used parts in Alberta. Any leads on places north of Edmonton?

    Edmonton cycle salvage has a tonne of maxim and seca bike in various stages of breakdown. I went upstairs looking for a kick-start for a vintage dirt bike project and WOW. Bring a good flashlight though. They are not overly helpful but if you know what ur looking for and what it looks like they have what u need.

    new seat B.jpg Sorry for the late reply but with winter comes thoughts of skiing :rolleyes:. To update, I did find a great shop in Sherwood Park called Sherwood Motorcycle. They stripped, cleaned, and sync'd the carbs, installed one bigger main jets, and now it runs great.

    One small hiccup, while stored outside in their lot a gust of wind blew something metal down on my seat and left a large cut. We negotiated a price and I had it recovered in cafe style. Not too sure about the result :oops:.

    PS. Have others heard the noise crackdown planned for Edmonton next year. Apparently they are piloting a noise camera which will mail tickets like photo radar :confused:. Actually I'm over the loud drone of my megaphone pipe and have ordered a muffler packing kit to tone it down.
