      Hey Philip, Read your post about the accident cwker007 got in. Got any more details, where did it happen, was he on a bike, do you know him, what's his name? Thanks, Danny

      Hello, Fire-medic not sure what your name is, mine's Tony. Been reading about wheel conversions and 2 names come up yours and LCR, are you different people? I saw pics of a bolt up you posted that really looked good. I am looking to go to an 18" and be able to go the radials. Does the swingarm need notching to use your 18" conversion? And then of course, what's the cost? Any details would be appreciated. Thanks, Tony

      Hey bro happy Saturday, read on a post somewhere about converting my stock wheel to a 18”. Said you were the guy to talk to. Been trying to just buy o s, ended up with one that was a 17” or one that was an 18” for big money. Would appreciate any help or a point in the right direction. Be safe out there

      Hello, traumahawk532 referred you to me. He said you customize stock wheels to accommodate 17 inch radial tires that will fit 180-190 rear tires. Do you have any weld up wheels available for sale? Please let me know, thanks

      Hey Phil. Yeah I'm jealous. Nice pics you posted. Not gonna make it up. Did get some good news Wednesday. I am officially on the national organ transplant list for a kidney so that feels like a step in the right direction.
      I keep looking for posts about Daytona but see little from the Vmax community. Marcus is posting on FB. I'm sure he is shooting for his 200 hp at the Shootout again.
      I did not know Raulf was hosting anything. Heck, I did not know if he was still at the shop since his health issues. Anyway, have a great time. Give me an update on the better halfs health some time.

      Hey I saw is the FS section you were making a 17" wheel from the stock vmax wheel. I was wondering what you were askin for it or if you we're able to make a version that would accept a 200 size tire? Thanks

      you wrote that had radials....on a forum,,,do you have 17" wheels.....or what tires do you have?

      OK,thanks.I priced a new one from local yamaha dealer,over $800 I have too much other stuff I need to spend that much on one part.I am building this from the ground up.R1 FRONT end,venture mono frame/96 vmax power

      Not w/o switching the ignition & pickup to the early system. Don't do it. The early system is not the way to go even if you had all the parts to do it. Stick w/the later system. If you need an ignition box buy a Dyna 3000
    14. jt4qracer
      hi guys,I have a question,I hope you more expieranced owners can help me with.Will an 85 cdi run my 96 vmax?

      Hi Patmax, I have not been by this wk to check on progress. Last wk he was waiting on some gaskets but had everything else. Today or tomorrow I will see what is up. Next wk is Spring Break so hopefully I can get it done then, in the bike.

      Any update on your motor rebuild? I'm starting to feel the heat to get my 90" remodel/clean up project now that 82nd Cowboy has posted the Bikeweek itinerary!

      Hey I am no production wizard! I keep eyeballing the HERO camera my local shop has for $200 which is quite a discount from the usual price. They look like fun, but the P.D. will want to grab it as 'evidence' if they see it. Plus, if you shoot so they can see your speedo going north of 160, "good-bye license!" I used to get so anxious waiting for spring when I lived in SW MI, I used to try my dirtbike on the lake we lived next to, between Battle Creek & Kzoo. No spikes, it was hard to stay upright. A few bone-jarring crashes on unyielding ice was enough reason to shut it down until spring.
