Hi,

My name is Philippe and I am in Utah. My bike is a 89 limited edition - which I managed to drop. That prompted me to do a restoration. then the engine blew up less than 100 miles later (broken distribution chain tensionneer, which led to a distribution chain breaking, which let the pistons to meet the valves, which created a lock that cracked the crankcases.....

I do not have he heart to rebuild the motor, so I am selling 2 sets of parts. (1) the parts that were purchased new off Yamaha less than 100 miles ago and (2) the other original parts - the bike has 20 k miles always loved and garaged - was my first bike financed on first paycheck….



(1) Parts that are new - less than 100 miles old:
- OEM exhaust system , 89 model stainless steel - bought the last one available in Japan it seems
- both master cylinders
- both side scoops, complete with grille at front
- handlebar
- speedometer
- all 4 turning lights
- both tires
- OEM seat, reupholstered at same time in grey over grey
- both fenders and top cover, automotive quality paint in official viper blue - see here

Really nice metallic pearly dark blue (all blue, no white stripe)

Want 60% of new price for those parts.


(2) all other parts are original to the bike (ie 27 year old, but pampered.....) Best offer on those - No main motor parts, seeing that the motor blew up, see above...
Philippe Astié

the 96 VMAX looks like the only year for black chrome exhaust. the end caps on the other hand could include other years. Check out vmaxguru.com for some cool history. hope this helps.

i was riding my bike onto a flatbed to have it serviced and it tipped on its side onto me. Damage was minimal: right side mirror broke and the right side exhaust chrome tip got a little rash from hitting the concrete. I was very fortunate that I did not get hurt and 'minimal' damage to the bike as described. So, here's the issue: My bike is in super excellent, stock condition and I want to keep it that way, so I'm looking to replace the exhaust with OEM. My friend is a V-Max owner and was a salesman at a YAMAHA dealership so he know quit a bit. The question came up as to what years did the V-MAX get produced with a black chrome exhaust? When I call companies to purchase the exhaust (yes, they seem to still have them from YAMAHA- that is they have to order them) they don't know if they are the black ones or the chrome ones. Does anyone know the exact years that the black chrome exhausts were used??? Maybe then, I can order the correct part. I don't want the black ones. In addition, here's a bit more. A couple of years after purchasing the bike, new in 1986, I went down with it. The pipes were destroyed and I was able to order a brand new set (about as expensive as they are today - $700-900) actually they were about $1,200 way back when). They have been on my bike since then and are the ones that I want to replace now. They are chrome except for the part where the exhaust tip delivers the exhaust gas at the end of the pipe. It's black and not chrome as the original was. Any info or help would be appreciated. thanks

Hello, I dropped my bike and the outside of the right exhaust tip got a road rash. That's really the only part I'm looking for. If yours will fit my 86 vmax, we can talk price even if i take the whole pkg. If interested, please email me at nycgto@att.net

thank you.

Can any of you guys out there give me some suggestions on side mounted plate brackets??
I've been looking for Gen 1 options and want to make a smart purchase. I need to know different mounting points if any other than axle.Im not opposed to axle mounting,just want options that aren't cheap,thrown together mounts...
Pics would be a major,major plus!
Thanks in advance!
Mike

I recently picked up my third VMAX a 2005, very clean in appearance , pristine looking bike with 9,900k under $4K the dealership I got it from said they had no maintenance/history on the Bike. Upon receiving the bike from shipper, I started it up and after a warm up it ran
fine and idled smooth. During my first ride about 10 miles in I noticed a humming sound, like a possible wheel or shaft bearing noise which got worse when I got up to 75 to 80mph. didn't want to push it with that going on, I can't seem to pinpoint its origin. I've never heard or experienced anything like it during my nearly 30,000 miles riding on the VMAX . I bit discomforting. Do you know of any possible culprits ?? Think i'm gonna need a good honest mechanic.

I have acquired a 2005 Vmax with just under 10k, the Bike looks nice and engines runs fine, took it for a ride and noticed a odd humming noise possibly coming from drivetrain/shaft, though not yet determined. This is my third VMAX and have never heard anything like this.

Anyone know of any history of bearing issues or possible cause.

Sorry if this is a double-post, but wow, the Vmax community is SOO split up now
I just found out there is a Vmax rally next weekend.
The central meeting place is at Captain Kyles house in Maryville, TN.
The host motel is the Princess Motel in Maryville.
Kyle has a ride planned each day, starting with the Cherohala Skyway to Deal's Gap on Friday, leaving ~ 9:30am. Then he's doing BBQ at his place that evening.
Saturday he riding the Devil's Triangle.

Is that 10k US or canadian funds? If American, good luck since you can pickup a GEN2 for less than that these days. Even brand new, you'd be lucky to get 7k for it.

Best of luck selling this bike...
