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).

I bought my bike with minor damage. I’m having trouble finding a matching replacement for the right side cowl/cover/faux scoop. Anyone who might have a line on one please give me a holler. I’m posting a picture of the damaged one.

Greetings from Tennessee. I have just recently purchased a 2004 Vmax 1200 from an insurance auction. It has minor cosmetic damage in a few places though the right side engine guard is too bent to repair . Still waiting for the state to approve my title. That hasn’t kept me from taking a few rides on the back roads of course.

This is a rolling ‘96 chassis. It was an ongoing project that ran into a bit of life, so has sat for several years. The bike was running fine with FCR’s, I just didn’t like the loud clicking so I thought I’d try EFI. That is where the fun ended. It has sat with some bits sold to others that were working on their own projects. Again, rolling chassis with considerable work done to it. A small laptop will be included, as it was included when I purchased the EFI. This was not the auto EFI that WildBros sold, but the manual one. A program remains for a 1500 motor, so if your wanting to finish that direction it is there. Business’s that performed work or supplied the parts are listed for you. Either swap your’s to this one or this one’s to yours.

Hi. I am wondering if anyone has had success in cooling upgrades on their Vmax? Mine runs warm and causes problems especially when going into slow traffic after some higher speed cruizing. I have tried to obvious mods of lower temp fan switch, 160 thermostat, water wetter and aluminum rad but still having problems. Does anyoneone know of a much bigger rad option or ? Thx Tom

Hi all, need help from some electronic gurus.
Vmax '85, european model. CDI sparked. I have a spare, but different: tried-not working. Ordered another spare with similar number- don' t work. I knew there are two types, the single pickip and the double pickup (the older, my one).
Who can tell me which are the right CDI or the compatible ones? The cause of the crash can be identified with cops use? Wich is the minimum resistance (ohm) for cops allowed? Thanks in advance, I post also some pics.

I have a 240 rear on my Gen 2. I had been using the Metzeller 880 until I could not get the 120/70-18 front so I switched to a Dunlop roadsmart 3 front and Dunlop Q3 rear. Touring I am getting 10000 kilometres. When I fitted the first set I mentioned that the inside of the rear was rubbing on the swing arm. I use the silver tape to seal the swing arm opening and the tape is what the tyre was rubbing against. I have just fitted my 2nd set of the Dunlop combination and had placed the balance weights on the outside edge of the rear rim. The weights foul with the swing arm so I have had to move them closer to the centre of the rear rim. All good now.

hello all, I got myself a 1991 model in mostly standar condition, a bit tatty in places but it's something for me to bring up to my own standard, I expect I'll have many questions while I learn about the bike

Installing Barnett Clutch and Plate in a 94 Vmax. The friction plates and steel plates have no markings on them like the OEMs. Does it matter how they go back in or they will only fit one way? Any tricks to installing that wire on the basket?

Welcome back to the VMAX world!!! Its hard to stay away from such an exiting bike for sure. I've owned a good handful of vmax's myself and know the feeling all too well here too...

Enjoy riding and be safe out there.

Hi all! This is my second go-around with a VMax. I saw one in a parking lot one day and it was love at first sight. I thought it was a little too much bike for me, a beginner, so in I ended up buying a VStar instead. I sold the VStar and found an '85 VMax on eBay in SC and had it shipped to Utah. It was such a fun bike to ride. I ended up having to sell it about 5 years ago so I was without a bike for almost 5 years. Last spring I found a great deal on a 2006 with 35k miles on it so now I'm back to riding again. I replaced the rear tire, handlebars (they weren't stock), front fork seals, a leaky gasket on the stator cover. and had to re-tap the screw holes in the brake lever box on the handlebars. Relatively minor stuff. This season I'll be replacing the front tire as soon as I can.

It's still as fun as it ever was to ride.
