I disassembled the carbs with my mechanic (Vmax 94 Canada model.)
I changed gaskets, o rings air cut valves, diaphragms ok cleaned them and ultrasonic bath on the body and jets.
When i got to thw a/f screws.. Fuck.. They cannot be removed. The screw heads are damagwd and seems that the bronze stuck on aluminum body.
Give me a tip to remove them.
Hey Dannymax. I hear that you have a VMAX engine testbed you use to test and tune carbs. Is that right? I've spent weeks (and weeks) trying to get my 88 VMAX carb rebuild to perform properly but keep coming up short. If I sent you my carbs, what would it cost for you to test them out on your setup and report back? THANKS! Paul [email protected]
Hi Dannymax question to you I've had the pilots screws drilled and new ones are in so thankyou for you offer of help even though it was not required..... I need to remove and clean the float needle housing how do you remove the brass housing... Do they pull out downwards and just out the whole or do you have to remove the blanking cap on the top outside of the carb it's a 1990 full power jap import
hi dannymax question do you happen to have a few spare parts for a vmax 1989 full power need the both right side carbs.. trying to fix my mates vmax and the last guy who had it chewed the pilots screws and theres something stuck in the lines im sure its a needle head where he tried to clean it out.. if you have the right side two or a set that i can recondition how much is the quetion??
Hi Danny. My 93 runs ok, but it just doesn’t seem to have the pop it once had. I’ve had the carbs off several times , but it still doesn’t seem to be quite right. Everyone says you’re the man so I’m asking if you still do the carb thing. Please use my email [email protected] or phone 517 404 3631 to text or call if you still do this and we can work out the details. Thanks! Phil Walker

Hello Danny. I have a set of carbs that were traumatized by a previous owner. I have had the bike running fairly well on throttle but idling is a mess. He mangled the butterflies and shafts in 2 of the carbs so that is why it is idling funny. Would you be willing to service these carbs? Brett Z.
hey danny i hadn't been on here in a while.just got to thinking about you and finally found you.Hope you and heidi are doing ok and had a good thanksgiving..I hadn't been on here or donated in two years .Don't know how to send you a private message .I would love to hear from you .my e mail is ([email protected]) .please e mail me.I miss you my ole friend.Terry
Danny - I'm not sure what's going on, but I expected to get an Email notification if you replied back in September and I didn't. I was just checking back now and noticed you replied the same day. Sorry I missed your reply - I assume you've since used the elbow somewhere else. I'm still looking for one if you have one or get one in. I'll look into my profile settings to see if notifications are turned off.
Regarding price, that's a bit difficult I suppose because you can't buy them OEM. Not having an reference for a market price, I'll throw out $20 as something that seems fair. Let me know your thoughts. I've got the carbs off the bike for the next month or so preparing for Spring. Thanks!
