OK no plans of letting the SW go, she has proved herself over two years and 30K that she's a keeper in my stable BUT I fancied trying another scoot and picked up a non runner 01 TMAX 500.

Perfect time for a project you say , well yes it is but I have other jobs round the house to do so its going to be a few weeks away yet before I look a bt closer into Max's guts.

The issue does not appear that bad on the fac of it , the bike starts and runs and you can do about 5MPH but then the clutch slips. The previous owner told me the local bike shop said the crank has been damaged so its a engine out job, well I dont fancy striping the engine down to that level but a bit puzzled how the crank could get damaged by a slipping clutch ubles the ejits have damaged it while attempting to remove the clutch!

All shall become clear in the next few weeks , given its spring now in the uk and the rainy season is here not to mention the covid 19 lockdown. Any advice on how to remove the clutch or a source of engine information would not go a miss TIA

Stay safe people

I know almost nothing about a T-MAX . Looked at a few parts diagrams and clutch basket bolts to crankshaft. If someone tried to pull it and damaged threads then maybe so.

As you are in the UK I suggest that you register on the MaxiMuppets forum where there are many people with the information you require plus the opportunity for occasional meetings with Meldrew !!

Good idea, although the X9 Owners Club forum might a better place to get technical advice on the TMax generally.

Meldrew! he was err.... socially isolated from the Muppets early last December, and all his posts were deleted,

You'd have heard about it, but Brexit and all that Harry and Meghan nonsense kept it off the front pages. Sad  

I hear that he's well  over it. Smile

Me too! Probably more a case of what I didn't say - basically just lost interest. Didn't seem to be any posts worth commenting on.
As with Meldrew, well over it! Laughing

Some years back I bought a new TMAX----fun to ride/maybe the best handling maxi scooter. Complicated to work on/I traded mine as the miles piled up fearing high Maint. /parts cost.

Before tearing into I would first secure Genuine Yamaha shop manual....and make sure you have reliable source for parts.

Me also, I got fed up with my comments being deleted by a moderator who seemed to think like a dictator.

There are a whole series of informative youtube videos by “bigwheelsturning” on T-Max DIY service. Dunno if he covers engine disassembly but he sure covers a lot of stuff. And as Mr. Grinsel counsels, ‘do buy the FSM’.

I can confirm (because I've just checked) that there is a manual for the 01 T-Max 500 available to view and download on the X9OC Forum.

Incidentally, the one for the Silverwing 600 is also there.

Well that was not hard, it was pretty dam easy and now have a working Tmax with 25K miles on the clock, the clutch plates were burnt out , even the metal discs were brown, sourced a clutch kit from France, less then a week to turn up and changed the oil and filter as I think the precious owner put the wrong engine oil in her.

Bit too soon to compare her to the swing but I am pretty sure I will keep them both , the swing seems more robust and so far reliable transport, the Tmax a sportier ride with better suspension but not half as practical imo.

I managed to wreck the rear tire valve so have ordered a 90 degree replacement and once installed will post some pics of the new ride if your interested. As i said first Yam for 30 odd years but always liked Yamaha's never owned a Kawasaki and dont like Suzuki's having owned a few. For me Honda Yam and Husqvarna all the way!

Thanks for the advice gents

I am just astounded at how so many of you know your way around these drivetrains. Anyhoo. I just put new shows on the Swing, but they are quite scrubbed-in yet. Plus, they shop left them at low pressure. Suffice to say, I still feel my Max is the better handling, more comfortable ride. The Swing's engine shines in lower revs, quieter noise, less vibe and less abrupt throttle response.
