Hello, I have been riding a 1985 VMax for 19 yrs and it has been a good time and out of all the bikes I have owned over the years the VMax has been my favorite. But as they say time and age marches on so I recently obtained a FJR 1300. It is more comfortable for me and my wife but I am not a collector so the VMax will be leaving my garage. The bike is stock except second gar went out at 71,000 miles so I got an 1989 engine with only 19,000 miles and exchanged the engines. The questions I have are, does an 85 VMax have much value and does an 85 engine with 71,000 have any value? I have looked around on the inter-web and found few examples of the 85 for sale, is this because no one wants them or a lot of people want them? If anyone out there has any input please jump in because I have no idea what an 85 VMax with 19,000 miles on the engine is worth. Thanks , Rod

I have a 2020 v-max and i need a windshield. I have looked everywhere and I can not find one that will fit. i've been riding 60 years and I have always had a windshields on my bikes. It's no fun when you hit a big bug at 75mph. I once hit a seagull on my Valkyrie years ago. I was going about 70 ...the windshield saved me. Thanks mtcybill

I have the backrest for my 86, but it also requires you to replace the portion it bolts into

Hi All,
New to the site, dig all the cool information that is shared here.

I purchased a 2020 VMAX in February this year (2021.) I have just gotten her to the 600 mile checkup stage.
There have been no full throttle runs of course because she's just getting broken in and I'm doing my best to follow
the book.
I had been looking at purchasing a Gen 1 bike for quite some time but, since they are discontinuing the VMAX
I figured I had better get a new one while I can.
I never gave up the search for a clean stock gen 1 bike and I was
rewarded with finding a 2005 completely stock and in great condition with 14k on her. I purchased her in March of
this year (2021.)
So, I now have a full stable of horse/power, a Gen 1 and Gen 2 VMAX and I'm having a blast riding and studying up
on the bikes. Just wanted to say HOWDY! And, let the fun times begin!

Carl

Hello from Tampa Bay Florida! In 1985, my older brother worked for a Yamaha dealer in Tarpon Springs, Fl (Cycle Springs Yamaha) assembling new bikes. One weekend he brought me (16y/o) to see what he does there. He showed me this new bike (1985 Vmax) and that was it. So, 36 years ago I fell hard for this bike and had to have one. I could not financially get one until about 2 mos ago. I never thought I would have a Vmax 1200, let alone a Vmax 1700! Yup, I got a 2015 and I am still thinking it’s a dream. Everyday I have to go and uncover it and look at it just to be sure it’s real! I finally at 51 years old have that bike I’ve always wanted! Needless to say, and as the old saying goes, “follow your dreams” and they will come true. It’s a pleasure to be a part of this group and looking forward to chatting with some other Vmax owners!!! Zakk

Hello everyone I bought my 85 V-Max new when I was young.
Now I and my bike are getting old. I hope to use this site to keep my favorite bike running for as long as I'm able to throw my leg over it.

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!

Have tried a dozen times to upload pictures but for some reason they're not showing up...help?

Since for some reason no pictures are being uploaded here for now, this bike for sale here has the same paint job as seen in the the thread "2006 Yamaha VMAX" posted by vmax2extreme.
