      Cool, did you think the other mods were viable?
      Flatslides and replacement fuel tank to the under side the fake tank leading to a reduced original tank in its existing location.
      Any help to get the look im after is very much appreciated.
      Thanks

      Anything can be done with time, money, and determination. I've also seen the Vmax rear seat supports removed and then a sportbike setup added to use the sportbike tail section (though not the shock).

      Hi Sean, How about cutting the welded in vmax frame seat rails out to make it look more like the Venture frame. I would need to replace with a new set up to suit the new seat and tanks etc, but if the venture can work structurally with a bolt on seat frame, then in thoery the vmax can, what do you reckon?
      Thanks

      The venture frame is vastly different then the Vmax and you'd spend forever trying to move over all the mounting tabs to put the parts back on if you wanted it to look like a Vmax. You could cut off the back of the Venture frame and weld that to the Vmax frame but in the end making something like we did would be a heck of a lot easier.

      Another option to consider would be a parallel mounted shock. One of the other forum guys did a setup like that (where the shock runs horizontally under the bike) and it looked good.

      Hi Sean, Part 2
      I started looking at the Venture with its mono shock rear end and bolt on seat rails. If i can use that frame, the rest apart fron the fuel tanks maybe would be plain sailing to get through. Well thats my idea anyway.
      What are your thoughts???
      I was hoping to keep the whole project under wraps as much as i can until i get the ideas underway, as i know i havnt seen a bobber vmax anywhere on the net.
      Thanks

      Hi Sean, PART 1
      Ultimatly i am looking to Bob the vmax.
      I started out looking to strut the rear end shocks out and cutting away the seat frame, fitting a leaf sprung saddle and reducing the fuel tank in capacity to just enough to keep the fuel pump etc in place.
      Then swapping out the carbies and aibox for flatslides and utilising the space created to extend the sweep of the fake fuel tank to under the seat in a point. connected to the remnants of the old fuel tank.
      This could all be too hard to do over here with the regulations and hoops you have to jump through. so i started thinking...
      If i could prove engineering precidence for the frame mods, that may smooth things out a bit for me.

      CJC you should be able to follow the manual and get it set. You'll possibly need to remove the exhaust on the rear to get access to the tensioner and the carbs/intake to get access to the tensioner for the front head. Get the engine rolled over to where it's at least the starting point and go from there.

      From what I can see of the pics of the alignment dots he's not even close on one with the small dot and the large dot (not even counting that it's not aligned with the line on the cap).

      Cody_Carr shared an album with you.


      View Album, http://s1272.photobucket.com/user/Cody_Carr/library/Mobile%20UploadsHi Sean I posted a question about a year ago about cam timing and I never got around to doing good it before I deployed so I had a friend take it to a local shop while I was overseas expecting to ride when I got back however the bike ran like crap so I rebuilt the carbs and double checked the valve clearances did a carb sync still ran terrible so I took some picts I would really appreciate a opinion from an experienced vmax mechanic whether this guy screwed me over or not lol

      The kits currently have 2 gold washers. One will fit over the shaft and one will not. The one that won't fit over the shaft is used in the oil pump and the other for the gear spacing. I do have oil pump strainers though you should be able to clean yours out. Emails work best. one2dmax@aol.com

      Sean, Would you ever make those COP brackets? Just installed a set and now think the brackets are a good idea.

      Sean it seems to me everyone asks for your opinion, so will I. I'm putting a blower kit on my 98 max and the seller tells me that the rods are great and don't need changing. Also valve springs are ok and spark will be fine because of the pressure sensor. It will be decomped and about 12psi. I have my doubts about the carby as well but that's easy for me to solve. I have been a mechanic 20 years and a pro engine builder, auto and diff man in my time with plenty of time in performance. I kept changing specialities due to boredom. I only say that to make it easy for you to give your opinion. I'm buying a kit because fab is not my speciality and making manifolds etc is beyond me. I dyno tuned blown motors for years and what this guy tells me doesn't ring true, but I have stuff all experience with bikes, maybe the valves are light and spings are good, it revs to 10,000 with no obvious valve float and rods break because of knock and oil issues not boost. Whats your opinion? Mark

      The new ARP studs we sell ($120 a set so half that cost if only needing 8). They do have the allen drive so it would be a lot easier in your case with these! I know I am temporarily out of them though I can get more in fairly soon most of the time. I MIGHT have some I can steal from one of my other engine builds and send to you.
