    You have it a little easier as the tank fits that frame. Not sure what Yamaha was thinking when they made the frame for the maxim :D

    I like to play with things so its not so bad.

    Oh no where is the problem with the frame?

    Maxim frame is 3" wide on the backbone. I like the older 400s that have a small backbone.

    I'm very happy I pulled the head to do valve seals.
    Two of the valves need to get lapped extremely badly.

    Have you test fitted a drive chain on it yet? Looks like there might be some clearance issues.
