Factory ones are few and far between, Puigu ( spelling) makes a good one. Will keep most of the wind off your chest. Tried a universal bat wing off eBay on my 2016. Worked very well and was not to hard to adapt, but doesn’t hold up well on 100 mph plus blast.

I have a nice 1985 Vmax with a PCW 1500 HO engine, Hindel pipe Yoshimira can, stage 7, K&N filters and Dyna 3000.
Having a hard time dialing in the carbs. It starts well and idles well. Sync is spot on. The half throttle and more is fine and it pulls hard and revs out well, but the part throttle 2000-5000 rpm is horrible and it will barely run here.
Needles in slot 3, 160 mains, new float needles and floats double checked and dynamic checked with clear hose, all good. PJ1 and 2 clear and Seafoamed and blown out. Idle jets at about 3 turns and are new. New diaphram rubbers. Added a kit of new seals and o-rings for the jet blocks that John from PCW tee'd up for me. No vacuum leaks.
I have had these apart and back together very carefully several times now with no change.
About to disassemble again and looking for some hints or ideas of where the problem might be? Thx Tom

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.

I have a 1985 front wheel in very good condition. Spins true and the current bearings are good, but It does come with new bearings.
$125 plus shipping.
