Hi again everybody! So I did as much as I could with my Maxim, and sadly had to send it away to a friend to finish fixing but... it’s running!!! I guess I should start with I bought it last summer from a guy who bought it off an older gentlemen that hadn’t had it going for a few years. So when I bought it, it was kind of a either it’s going to be a total dud or hey, it might actually run, kind of thing. I paid 400 for it. I don’t have the mechanical expertise to go really far in the fixing aside from I pulled off the carbs and starter motor and new gas lines and petcock. After that, I realized it wasn’t getting fuel somehow and didn’t know where to go from there and then had no time as I started a new job. A friend worked in on it for a few days and really, it was just the fine tuning of the carbs. So it’s running! I have experience on smaller dirtbikes- I have a Crf 150rb that I ride... but I’ve been looking at other posts on here saying that a 650 may be too big to start on? I’m not a super small girl- 5’7’’ and around 190 pounds. I work physical jobs (construction/ forestry). I want to take the motorcycle course they offer in the city but have to wait a few more paycheques as it’s $500 for the two day course on their bike (seems a little absurd to take it on another bike- but apparently insurance covers their bikes?). I’m hoping to write the learners test this week but as I have no one that I know with a class 6 to go with... it’s kind of moot. Lol Is there anything I should have looked over before I start riding at some point? As far as I know the bike is pretty much original for parts etc. Is there anything that I should get up to date at all? Thanks!!!
