Hello to all. I just bought my first Vmax, a 2002. I have wanted one for a long time but could not afford one so when this one came up for sale in my price area I was really happy. I also started a new Facebook page called Yamaha Vmax Homepage. Anyone out there on FB please feel free to come to the page. You need to ask to join but I will gladly accept. Thanks again for adding me to this forum!!

Marc. I average about 38 mpg on my 2006 when just cruising. It drops to about 20 mpg when in V-boost a lot.
Sounds like you have a float leaking fuel by the needle to be using that much fuel.

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.
