I own an 86 v max that was modified by Mad Max in Waterbury, Conn. One day about 3 years ago the bike wouldn't start. No fuel pump click, no lights, nothing. Brand new battery, checked all fuses ( ok ). I got caught up with work and didn't have time to investigate further so I drained the gas tank and fuel bowls. From sitting for a lengthy time I notice fluid on the floor next to the kickstand. Turned out I had no pressure on clutch lever. I tried adding clutch fluid and bleeding it with no success. Probably need a new clutch slave cylinder or rebuild kit. As far as the starting issue it could be a multitude of things, main switch assy., relays, etc. I do not have the proper tools to test these things. I've bought my bike to 3 different shops in the past and was not happy with their service. Can anyone recommend a competent mechanic in my area that has knowledge of these bikes ? I reside in Winter Haven, Florida.

Thanks, Steve

I have a 2005 Vmax with 11,500 miles very clean pristine condition, which was purchased via a dealership, history unknown though the bike was well cared for and appears to have never been down , after riding for a about 500 miles the bike seemed to have a hum/ winning slight vibration which seems to be coming from transmission. This is my third Vmax sense 1986 , this is a new unfamiliar sound/feel. I don't know any good VMAX MECHANICS in the Waterbury/Connecticut area. Please feel feel to guide me to someone or if this problems sounds familiar. please respond with any suggestions

I live on the southern border of Maine and was wondering if there are any active Maxers in my area. If so lets go for a spin.

Anyone use these and if so what kind and how would your rate them. I have a set but walked out of work one afternoon to find one of my mirrors sitting on my seat. I wanted to replace them with a different set anyway and was looking for some ideas and pictures if you have them.

I have a 2012 and really like the bar ends. Current ones don't vibrate at highway speeds as this was a huge problem with my previous 05 Max.

Regards, Lance

Hi everyone. I just bought a 1998 V MAX. It will be delivered today. I've wanted a V MAX since 1985. I've owned many bikes but just never got around to getting the Yamaha. I can't wait to ride it. I live in Boerne Texas so there are plenty of nice roads to cruise.

Have you tried reaching out to either John Furbur of RMSportmax or Sean Morley of Morleys Muscle? Both are well respected vmax vendors and should be able to assist you.

Mayday, mayday, mayday.....I'm looking for a trigger coil for a 1985 Vmax. I'm told that the trigger coil I need applies to a 83-89 Venture and a 85-89 Vmax. If anyone knows where I can find one of these unicorns please let me know, my contact info is greg.darlow@yahoo.com, or (605) 381-4030 (text works best). Thanks in advance.

Thanks for your insights.

Pleased to say that I have purchased my first VMAX. A bike I have wanted to own for a long time. The bike was a bit dirty but runs like a clock. None of the potential issues you had pointed out.

a 1998 with approx 63,000kms on it for $3700 Cdn.
