    Vmax valve shim tool

    Hey Sean, Thanks for responding. Ideally I would like the kit but just to get it done I was hoping to find the tool as I only have 2 intake valves that are a little tight. I was thinking I should be able to use the tool to remove the 2 shims and once I see what they measure I would be able to...

    Vmax valve shim tool

    Hey there, I am going crazy trying to find a valve shim tool for my 89 Vmax. Everywhere is sold out. I have two Intake valves that area a little too tight. I contacted Sean and he has me on the list for a while but his kits aren't yet available. If anyone has a kit they could loan out or even...

    Need help hooking up Ignitech

    Hey, I'm a new owner of an 89 Vmax. Which I'm trying to get back on the road. I got the bike very cheap and rode it home on maybe 2 cylinders. After going through the bike I discovered that I have a Stage 7 jet kit with Vboost still hooked up and 4 into 1 exhaust. The carbs were a mess with...

    Yes you can hear it cycle and all the components appear to be attached. I just took a closer look at the parts from this carb and the slide have been drilled, (I matched them with a #19 drill bit, same as mentioned in the Dynojet instruction). I will get the jets you mentioned and I am very...

    Ohhhh Fuuuuudddddggggeee!!. This is what I hate about previous owners. So I just checked and my Vboost is still installed. I just opened the tops on the other carbs and they all have the same needles as this. I am going to take your advice and grab a set of Stage 7 needles since I'm mostly there...

    Yes. The front two pods have spigots on top but no hoses. After you told me about the stage 7 I just went online looking for the instructions. I have experience with inline 4's. I have two 70's CB750s which I built but this is my first vmax. The hard part now is trying to figure out what has...

    this is a closer pic of the side before I began taking it apart, where you can see the vent line from the oils cap. Should I be worried about no the way they are not hooked into anything?

    Thanks for the quick reply. Im in Fort Lauderdale. There is a hose running from the oil cap up towards the area around the carbs but it vents to the air. Two of the pods have vent ports on the tops but no hoses are connected. Now that you mention it the holes in both 170 jets do appear...

    New owner of an 89 VMAX

    Hey everyone this is my first post. Im in south Florida and I just picked up an 89 Vmax that is a little rough. The bike is complete and starts right up and runs but not on all the cylinders. The odometer says 6000 miles but I seriously doubt it, although it does looks like it sat outside...
