    Hey, How much do you think you will want and when would you want to get rid of them? Thanks, Derek

    Just discovered how horrible an '85 Max handles...

    Maximus, I understand your concerns. I have had a number of Honda Magnas that I believe handle better than the Max, but a little less power. Earlier this spring I purchased a '99 Bandit 1200 because I got a great deal on it from a guy who had to sell it for the cash. After fixing it up and...

    My ride and performance question

    Maximus, Here are the markings on the rotors, front and back are the same. BRAKING brand. Two codes engraved on them: YA05F1 and KBA61005A. I assume they are stock size since they measure 11" in diameter. After a quick google search of the 1st code I got this page from a catalog at...

    My ride and performance question

    I am in Broken Arrow/Tulsa. It sounds like the packing may be part of the issue. Thanks guys for all the leads. Robert, let me know where you are and maybe we could meet up sometime.

    My ride and performance question

    Thanks Clay. I will check the mixture. I may put a couple more discs in. I would love to be able to take my old Super to the meet if I still had it. I think my work schedule may prevent me from attending the meet, but if I can get off, I could make the 3 hour trip either with trailer or...

    My ride and performance question

    Maximus, If you are referring to my rotors, they are Braking brand. I can check and see if there is a number on them if you'd like. They were on it when I bought the bike, both front and rear. I am getting a low speed squeek/rub from both, but that may be a result of the pads. The rotors are...

    My ride and performance question

    After doing a quick search in the Carb/Tuning section, duh, I found the easy step by step instructions. I will have to get my hands on a carb tuner tool. My neighbor works at a bike shop. Maybe he can hook me up. He would probably help me, but I hate to ask him to work on my bike when he...

    Polishing up the Scoops

    I agree with Yankee in that polishing will never look like chrome. After purchasing mine a month ago, the clearcoat was peeling quite a lot. I figured I would polish them and if I didn't like how it turned out, I would have them chromed when I came into a fortune (which hasn't ever happened)...

    My ride and performance question

    Thanks Yankee, I don't think the left side is louder. Actually it is quieter than the right when taking off, but after about 1/4 throttle and up, it sounds like it "kicks in" more and gets as loud as the right side. The pipes had 600 miles on them before I purchased them (so they say). I...

    My ride and performance question

    Hello all you VMax nuts. I have been around for the past month or so as a recent VMax purchaser. I love this thing (bike and website). A week or so ago I got a great deal on a barely used set of SuperTrapp slip-ons. My '86 is completely stock except for these. The carbs were synced prior to...
