    SOLD: Gen I STOCK Vmax SEAT

    Hey Lewis, Thanks for the offer, but one of our forum members in Michigan took me up on the offer. He swapped me his SportMax seat, which is very similar to the stock Yamaha unit. Both of our saddles are in transit at the moment. I'll take down this thread once the swap is complete. Best...

    Has anyone found a SILENT FUEL PUMP?

    Maybe the Kerker fuel pump noise canceller is a better way to go!

    Has anyone found a SILENT FUEL PUMP?

    Yeah, and the car dealer tells me the rattle in my dashboard can be eliminated with the 100-watt stereo turned way up! As for the Mr. Gasket 42S, I see that it is quite long, with the fuel inlet on one end and the outlet on the other. Doesn't that make it a pretty tight fit and necessitate...

    Has anyone found a SILENT FUEL PUMP?

    HI. I know it's normal for Gen I Vmax fuel pumps to click, right? I've noticed that clicking is loud enough to hear while idling at stoplights and it annoys me. Then again, most things annoy me. Seriously, has anyone found a replacement pump that is silent or near-silent? Thanks, guys. Paul

    '88 V-Max starts only with choke, revs high for 1 second, then dies.

    Hey, 02GF74... It's hard to know exactly what I did differently on the last rebuild, as there are so many variables (gross understatement!). Some possibilities: -- Entertained ALL Vmax forum suggestions -- Did a better job of triple-cleaning ALL carb parts with an ultrasonic cleaner -- Used...

    Horn, blinkers and brake light: DEAD!

    PROBLEM SOLVED! Even though all the fuses were good, one of the wires leading into the fuse block was corroded and had a bad connection. Now everything works perfectly. THANKS to all for weighing in on this. Special thanks to Sean at Morley's Muscle for his willingness to send out the loaner...

    Horn, blinkers and brake light: DEAD!

    Thanks for the schematic. No wonder I didn't see a fuse for those other circuits!

    Horn, blinkers and brake light: DEAD!

    I've had a can of Deoxit in with my electrical stuff for years. What was I saving it for?? Now, I guess.

    Horn, blinkers and brake light: DEAD!

    Sean atMorely's Muscle is going to loan me his electric test kit to help narrow down the problem by process of elimination. I'll keep you posted! Paul

    Horn, blinkers and brake light: DEAD!

    . . P.S. -- The tachometer isn't working either. Is there any circuit or component that the horn, blinkers, brake light AND tach all have in common?

    Horn, blinkers and brake light: DEAD!

    First, I must admit that I HAVE been monkeying with the wiring on my '88 Vmax. Mostly detailing the wiring looms while cleaning and touching up the frame. (Obsessive and Compulsive are my two middle names!) Today I noticed that the horn, blinkers and brake light don't work. Nothing, nada, zip...

    '88 V-Max starts only with choke, revs high for 1 second, then dies.

    Forgot to update you guys. Basically I did everything suggested by you fine folks and the carbs are spot on. Instant start, steady idle, clean power from idle to WFO. Thanks, everyone!

    Carbs all done --- still having problems (high idle, can't sync)

    Your Max is looking great, too. The photo confirms that I'll be painting mine black -- the sun has faded much of my red paint to some weird shade of pink. If you want to compare engine noise to another Vmax in the Las Vegas area, I believe that EuroSports has a '95 in their used bike inventory...

    Thanks, C2protect. Your advice, along with the other guys, has gone to good use. The bike back together and running great. From here it's all detail stuff.

    Finally! The bike now runs so strong it scares me! This being my first VMAX, I had read about V-Boost over and over, but had no idea that the rush of power would be SO intense. Talk about truth in advertising!!
