Aftermarket mirrors, signals may be aftermarket but they could also be from an earlier 750 maxim.....either way, they’re not the correct round ones
Busy with two schools, several weekend shows, one Musical production coming up, picking/pressing apples, a show this coming weekend, and...
Here’s the official announcement—
CNYCC#15 is now scheduled for June 15, 2022

So for planning——
CNYCC#15 is scheduled for June 11, 2022
I’ll make a new forum for it :)
Why did they say that?
Did they back it up with verifiable proof?
Or could it be they just don’t want to deal with an older rack?
Likely oil burning off
The pre-1983 xj750 maxim
To name a few.
BUT if the OP happens to show up and actually post a pic of his...
Still be easiest to show is a pic. We can tell right away what it is. Of course, the OP hasn’t checked in here since posting the question, so...
Show us a pic
Oh, my bad. What engine guard are you talking about then? Got a picture?
Pool, talk with me
Wanna order new, talk with LEN
sync gauges- get a set of the Morgan Carbtune Pro

From member ‘desinger_mike’:
I'll chime in with a couple tips:
To get the buckets out of the head, I used a valve lapping drive. (a suction...
Yeah, I meant don’t mix up the buckets.... typed the wrong thing..but don’t mix up the caps either——-
yeah, ziptie the cam sprockets to the chain...
Make sure you:
-read up on the procedure for the X. It’s different than the airheads. ( shim under Bucket rather than shim on top of bucket,...
I’d strap to the FRONT
They are sized in 5’s...... 275, 270, 265, 260, Etc...... easy to get
I got tons of them—- pm me. Or buy new from LEN. Either way, they are super-easy to get.
So your looking for the diameter of the main tube, not the diameter of where it goes into the collector... got it. I’ll try to get to mine to...
At what point?
I’m thinking “ if the plugs are dry, there’s no fuel getting to them. There’s only one way for it to get there.... through the fuel valve. If...
What height did you set your floats at?
make sure 1/4 and 2/3 Coils are connected to the correct connectors, too
If there’s spark but no fire, that narrows it down. You need spark, gas, and air.
but, first make sure you have the coils hooked up correctly
Geez. Here we were hoping to see something you don’t see every day……….what a letdown.:(

Dan is correct..... the drain plug is right there with the JIS right in the center of it.

Too bad those MaximX’s didn’t come with the expensive unobtanium bits........
I don’t think it’s Japanese-market-only.... I think it’s Euro, too, and I believe it was a pretty popular model in the Euro market. Whatever the...
No he’s not…….he’s explaining that the xj500 is exceedingly rare, and you’re gonna have a really hard time finding an engine for an xj500. You...

Have you tried new plugs?
I use one inline filter and the four beanie-cap filters..... so— two filters
As long as when you lightly sucked on the vacuum line, the gas flowed through the gas line, not back into your mouth from the vacuum line.......
Step 1 - rebuild them
Step 2 - go ride
Nah..... it’s not that heavy. I had the same setup on my 650 maxim..... and you can see that in my gallery
Air Scoops - 1983 XJ900RK Seca
It’s taken almost 15yrs to find the ones I need for my 900’s......find one here, finding one there——
