    Definitely a maxim. Worried how different the tune would be if you switched back to regular air box filter... might be an increase in airflow, might be a decrease.

    Hey all, Just wanted to post my about my success pulling the engine outa my bike. Crazy experience so far, better feeling of achievement than playing Zelda right now. Bought the bike used last year, had a full summer of riding before the bike started falling apart on me. Oil leaks, slipping...

    1984 xs400 maxim help

    As for the battery cover, going to be a struggle to find these. Best bet is to frequent your local motorcycle scrap yard or classified for a non working maxim… sorry not much to go off

    Maxim Starter Clutch Location

    Bike was having starting issues last fall. Scratchy sounds when letting off the button, occasional stick, etc. I was prepping for a top end rebuild, but should a be preparing for a case split? How far into the engine would I have to go to replace the starter clutch?

    Starter won't stop

    Thanks for your reply Kitchi! Think the solenoid was stuck? I took it out and diagnosed it alone. It was switching correctly when I tested it. Or maybe I unstuck it while I was testing, I unno. Anyways, appears to be working now. Gonna start looking into updating this old tube fusebox...

    Starter won't stop

    OEM toolkits

    That's pretty cool! Still deciding whether I should restore or mod my maxim. Question! Saw on some part diagrams that this actually fits around the bottom of the bike somewhere, is this the case?

    Screw length sizes

    Hi everyone, Looking to replace all the mismatched rusty bolts on my bike from the previous owner. The OG manual has the thread specs but no lengths. Anyone know where to find those?
