Just a pull downstairs… For what it’s worth, the bike is completely disassembled at the moment lol
I’ll take a Closer look this week to see what they are.
Tell me more about those, please
I’m doing great!!
making sure I maintain my title of “East Coast Parts Hoarder”....... gotta do my part of the job! Lol
Adopted these a few weeks...
Dan, i did a write- up on just how to get into the 700 maxim/X/virago gauges and this would take the same approach.
Here is a link, for your...
I have a Honda 305 dream in the attic......

Good grief.... I hardly know where to begin——
Right side cover
Right engine guard
Right foot peg
Right engine cover
That’s not running correctly there,.either.
you CAN Do a complete tear down and rebuild on the carbs yourself… It is not impossible. We are right...
Yes, those are 36’s.
I have a bunch, Len ChacAl at XJ4ever has a bunch......
Be great if you can come again:)
Ok—it sounds like it’s not running on all cyls. I’d check to see which pipes in front don't warm up... The replace plugs/trim leads/check...
1. I wonder if a running sync was performed.
2. I wonder if valve clearances we adjusted— did you get a writeup if what is in there now....
They’ll be arriving in a little while..... clearing a stall for them. They’ll be with the new 650rj arrivals that came a while back.
It’s not uncommon for a new battery to be a bad battery. Sounds like yours is a bad battery even though it is new.
it IS also possible that you...
Based on your explanation and description, I’m going to venture a guess:
1. your battery is low
2. With plug removed, there’s no compression so...
After you paint it, make sure you clean off, to bare metal, any place that will be a grounding point.....
I’m not gonna guess at anything til I hear/see it
Still not making sense. Can you make a short video of it and post it here so we can hear/see what’s happening ?
Nope.... xj crank case vent goes to the airbox and it’s uphill all the way anything in the tube will drain back down. Anything in the airbox will...
Slides won’t move until the engine is running
What is the noise it’s making??
Swing arm pivot covers. Will interchange with any xj650, 700, 750, X, maxim, seca......
The only differences between ‘81 xj650 maxim an ‘82 xj650maxim racks would be:
-possible slight jet size differences depending on where the...
80-83 xj650 non turbo carbs are all the same thing with SLIGHT variation....these are definitely not.
That’s not like any turbo rack I have or have seen, doesn't look like ANY xj rack I've ever seen......but honestly it doesn’t even look like it’s...
Trouble-shoot your key switch. Is power getting to it? Then is it getting through it?
What is the voltage of your battery?
It wouldn’t be the first time for a jet to get loose either.... first carb clinic I ever attended— they had a rack that was giving nothing but...
That’s not cool. My first thought is bad battery.... once again wouldn’t be the first time I’ve seen new batteries that were already bad.
Sounds good so far :)
Elk!!! Good to see ya again
If the fuel valves are that different, then I’d question if you have the right fuel valves
No. ‘82 has Atari digital dash, 83 has standard non-digital dash
same switch for
84-87 XV700 Virago
88-97 XV750 Virago
Anything is possible……just depends on how much money it would take.
the 750 Maxim engine is an inline 4
The v-star engine is a V twin.
What does the battery voltage drop to when you press the start button?

I remember, and figured you’d pipe up here
That’s right off the cheat sheet.
But, the cheat sheet says—
I’m not seeing any post like that.
And I’ve seen rough bikes before..... but this one——-sheesh
I order those as standard fare for Hitachi rebuild kits. I only install the Deluxe complete rebuild kits, with metal tip needles and the hex...
Yes, they’re pretty rare. I only have two.
I love my Dunlop D404’s
Good to hear—Thanks
It’ll be happy, and in good company :)
