1982 Yamaha Maxim 750
Seems to be a great used bike at a great price.
Pretty excited - just picked up a 1882 750 Maxim with 30,000 miles on it - in Minnesota - in February! The test ride was brutal at -5F, but we live here so...
Looks to be in good shape - power washed it and it did restart and looks pretty good for a 35 year old bike! Will change the oil and drive shaft fluids before my first real ride.
Thanks for all your posts - they confirmed what I had hoped for regarding this bike.
My brother put 50,000 plus miles on a 750 Seca and said an oil cooler was very important - was wondering if anyone else has done this - my brother lives in the south - I live in Minnesota and I rarely if ever drive my bikes if the temp is over 90F and I avoid traffic at all costs (I live outside the metro) so I am moving pretty good just about all the time. Do think the bike would benefit much from an oil cooler? They look to be about 300 bucks - I paid 600 for the bike so not too sure about spending 300 on the bike right away - but I might! Any ideas or experiences you have had would be helpful.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Don't Know
