  • Hi Sean this is Keith from Hays, Ks. Was wanting to know if you had a new pickup coil part # 3UF-81670-00-00 for my 1991 Vmax. I think I will also need the middle cover gasket and the crankcase cover gasket to replace the pickup coil. If you have these parts what would the total cost be shipped to Hays? If you want to just call me my cell phone # is 785-656-3580. Thanks Keith
    Hi all
    I'm new to the forum.
    I've just bought a nice 1989 Japanese import
    After charging the battery, draining and refreshing the fuel, it started 1st time, but was very hesitant when the choke was turned off.
    It stalled then would not start again.
    I left it till the next day and tried again, it started 1st time, but again when warm it stalled and wouldn't start.
    Have you guys any idea why?
    I'm an auto tech and I really don't like working on auto ring and pinion....so I'm inclined to replace the unit.
    I have a 190/50r17 rear
    Would you suggest a different ratio unit?
    Hi one2dmax
    i own a 2004 Vmax 1200 fullpower and sadly rode it with low coolant, and overheated. Now, she's leaking coolant from the right front cylinder head, and when it's idling, will spill most of the coolant after a few minutes.
    Do you have any idea what might be damaged inside the engine, what new parts i'll need and how much it will cost me to fix it?
    It still starts and rides without noticing any power loss.
    Sean, you got a used fuel pump? The Pump I got for the Roadie died. I think a Max pump will fit. I'm assuming that the pumps deliver the same pressure. Any idea what that might be? I can get a 3 to 5 pound pump locally. The pump I put in wont start up, till I give it a tap with a screwdriver. It then fills the bowl, and shuts off. But it won't run to keep the bowl filled as it uses the gas, and runs out. Another tap, it starts clicking and refills the bowl. I think there is something sticking in the points in the pump. Any idea if this is repairable? Most of these pumps seem to be about the same size, it wouldn't have to be a Max pump. The pump is wired directly from the battery positive, grounded to battery negative, and controlled by a relay, switched by the ignition. I am getting good power to the relay, and the wires to pump and ground from pump to battery are PosiLock connected. Wiggling them does'nt get the pump working, so I'm thinking it definitely is a defect in the pump.
    Thanks for the message. Hopefully we got you the info you were looking for in our emails. (always best to email me)
    Hi Sean. need some help here for finding parts. my spark plug wires are in poor condition and so are the spark plugs themselves. i got new plugs but need help finding spark plug caps and wires. A cap i found is the NGK SB05F and am wondering if it will work (using the ngk spark plugs). as for wires, im not too sure what im looking for so some advice in that regard would be awesome. also, will the screw on caps just transfer to the new wires? Thanks for the time and help.
    Also, i do know about the COP kit but dont really have the time right now to do it, ill do it for a mod in the future. Oh and the reason im trying to go aftermarket is beacuse new caps and wires from the dealership was gonna cost me close to 500$ CAD tha even the parts guy was saying thatrs ridiculous even if i did cut you a deal.
    I've tried various ones and not sure when or what specific years were chrome underneath. I think most years were but the paint sure got on there better in some years. I might have one already done? Best to email me.
    Hi Sean,
    Looking for a rear reflector housing that I can "polish" to "chrome". I took brake cleaner to mine and it just stayed gray. I have an 89 and apparently that year didn't have the "chrome" underneath. Where can I find one? What year can they buff out? Thanks!
    Damn Sean,
    What did you do to get back into Starvmax.com forum ????? I ask them every day to let me back in............I never get a reply.....LOL
    Got your message and shot you back the reply (and of course we have the regulator on the way!)
    Hey Sean,

    Just picked up an 86 Max and need to replace the R/R was wondering if you still sell an OEM fitting MOSFET? If you do id like to buy one off you. My email is bmw4@pct.edu or my
    Number is 5704392002.


    Euro is wider but the superbike has the better wrist angle. Email me at one2dmax@aol.com and i'll send you some comparison pictures.
    Hi Morley, I want to swap the handlebar for my bike. Can you give me some advice? I prefer cruising around rather than leaning over too much. Actually, I like the stock riding position but the stock bar is quite narrow and the wrist angle is uncomfortable. So Superbike or European, I need your advice to decide. Thanks. Vu.
