Re: T-Max drive belt question

Yeah it's the belt to drive the rear wheel, my brother said hand book states change at 18000 mile. But just checked on line at Yamaha UK and it states check every 6000 miles until 24000 miles then check every 3000 miles. And replace if damaged! So thanks for your help, will have to tell him.

T-Max drive belt question

Hopefully some of the T-Max owners will be able to help me here. My brother owns a 2015 T-Max and I was talking to him the other day and he was telling me that his Max is due a drive belt change. (The one that drives the rear wheel) and he has seen prices in the region of £300. Is this the norm or a...

Re: 2018 Xmax 400 1500 ml update

Your certainly getting the miles on your scoot. Mine just turned 200 miles today after a week. Can't wait to get the service out of the way and start getting more speed!! But like yourself I think the handling is brilliant, didn't expect to be such a change from the 2016 X-Max 400.

Re: Gloves

I have RST Thermotech heated gloves and they are excellent have 3 heat settings with a rechargeable battery in each glove. The new scoot has heated grips fitted so now got two cold weather riding options!

Re: New X-Max 400

Well I've now got 135 miles on the clock and really enjoying it, handles a lot better than previous model. Just can't wait till it's run in so I can get a bit more speed and try the over taking abilities. I've washed it twice already, used baby shampoo and works a treat! :D

Re: 2018 Forza 300

The good news for the arthritically Challenged amongst us, feet forward is retained. Something both Yamaha and Kawasaki preclude me from, in their mid range maxis.
The X-Max is feet forward! :D

Re: New X-Max 400

Find the fuel cap better than the previous model 400, it was like a plastic jerry can! But have only used it once so will find out! Yeah know what you mean about the button. I've unlocked the filler flap a few times when trying to lock steering!! :lol:

New X-Max 400

Well I collected it today, 9 days later than planned, but it's here now! It certainly seem's to handle differently, but not been out of the city yet to try it on the twistys. The parking brake is brilliant and very well placed on the handlebars. I got the Yamaha heated grips as an option, but they d...
