And to clarify on this morning, there wasn't a lot of rust at all, just like someone put a pinch of pepper in it

Hey guys, new guy here. I picked up my first Vmax a few weeks ago (92, bone stock unmolested), and I'm having some fuel issues and was looking for some pointers or advice to check something I may be overlooking. I went on a ride a week or so after I got it and got stuck on the side of the road. Being that I just picked this thing up, I wasnt sure if the fuel light or reserve switches worked and just chalked it up as I ran out of gas with 90 or so miles on the tank. I fill the bike up, and it still wont start. I checked the fuel filter and its CAKED in what I can only assume is rust. No gas whatsoever. I blew it out, limped it to the parts store, and swapped the filter out. Now, I ride the rest of the day just fine until later that night. It did the same thing with 76 miles on a full tank, I fill it up, and it only took 2 gallons. Bust out the tools again, same issue but the filter doesnt look nearly as bad still no gas in the filter. Had an extra at the house and the ol lady brought it down to the gas station for me to throw it on.this time I didnt even make it back to the house, and it shut off again, wont start.

Next day my mechanic comes over, were coming through the bike and we found a hole in the fuel line between the tank pickup and the fuel filter. We cut the line back past the split, and it worked like a charm. Sweet right?!



Wrong.


I've put about another tank of gas through it and it worked great until this morning. On my way to work this morning, I'm on the highway and it sputters it's slow painful death again, so I pull over but this time I don't have tools. So I push the bike 2 miles to my work and take the seat off, and theres some rust in the fuel filter, no gas in the filter at all. I take the filter, blow it out and put it all back together and is working again from what I can tell. I'm just wondering if maybe theres a pressure switch or something that may be going bad? I'm kinda sick of pushing this bike, and really just want to get to the bottom of this. Any advice would be awesome, please and thanks!

All,
Hello, My name is Don Price (Rochester, NY) and I have a 2000 vmax where the vboost is no longer working and I haven't been able to get it working and I hope there is someone out there who can help me. I have replaced the vboost control box no luck, I hear and see the vboost motor cycle although it doesn't seem to open very far. When riding it won't come on at 5500rpm which is a huge disappointment! It seems like it's not getting a signal to open at 5500rpm and I think this comes from coil #1 but am unsure, has anyone had a similar issue that could point me in the right direction to get this working again? Thank you all for taking the time to read my post.
Cheers All,
Don

Aloha all! I'm not exactly new to VMAXs, as I grew up around them. My father is Rich Beauregard, who was fairly active in the community back in the day and has had quite a few VMAXs. My brother has also had a few VMAXs, and that's what brings me here. I am currently fixing up my brother's 2009 VMAX (I'm doing the work since I'm a bit more mechanically inclined), so he can give it to our father as a gift. The bike has some issues with first gear, but after talking with Sean Morley, I have ordered the parts I need to fix that. The bike has some rusty/corroded bolts as it has spent a good deal of time outside in Hawaii, so I ordered all new high quality U.S. stainless bolts for it from ProBolt. The handle bars have some rust and I would like to replace them, does anyone know of some good stainless or high quality aluminum (maybe 7075 or 6063?) bars that will fit that 1 1/8" center with 7/8" ends and not hit the scoops at full lock? Also going to do some basic stuff like a Delkevic 14" carbon exhaust with de-cat, K&N intake, lock-up clutch, EBC HH brakes, and I'm going to derestrict it and dyno tune it. Does anyone have fuel/ign/throttle maps for a similar setup that they would be willing to share to give me a better starting point and save me some time on the dyno? Also, I want to upgrade the suspension to perform a bit better, but none of the usual routes (Ohlins, RaceTech, etc.) offer anything for this bike in terms of valving and springs (I have reached out to several companies about possibly making some custom springs though). What are you all doing for this? Does anyone have custom suspension? I would love to see it! This thing is definitely a far cry from the sportsbikes I usually work on (I daily a Hayabusa, and I modify and maintain my friend's CBR1000RR, RSV4RR, and GSX-R1000R), but I've always loved VMAXs and would love to bring this thing to its full potential before sending it off to my dad. Thanks in advance for any help or information, and thanks to Sean for the help he has already provided!

Anyone ever use Tuneboy?

I am really going after the Cruise Control feature as opposed to tweeking the map. Did you also install the Nudge Buttons? The website is not clear that they work on the VMAX or how to buy them in addition to the module.

Here's a pic of the part I'm looking to replace. If anyone has a line on one, please let me know. So far no luck on ebay or salvage sites.

Check starriderperformance.com for 4 2 1 full exhaust. I do believe they were the previous suppliers to UFO (not quite sure).
