    New motor build

    So 1428 is where ive landed. A shop recomendation is coming (for sleeving and decking) with the parts and depending on turn around time I will use that shop. Prior to this I was looking around for machine work and found nothing that I would call acceptable. When I asked the shop I have been...

    Vboost sensor

    i might not be able to give you the right answer, but i will give you one anyway. The "pressure sensor" is also found on the venture with the same p/n. With no v-boost on the venture i would maybe say it dosent have anything to do with the v-boost. However the vmax ecm may or may not alter...

    New motor build

    yeah. i can't seem to nail down a bore answer. I had come across an old set of build lists, not really sure where it came from originally. 1344 would work. I can get a 1300 motor running for $150 so that would make sense. If i can't and I need sleeves..well there is no replacement for...

    New motor build

    well back to the vmax block. i had read in another post with a spread sheet for a 1-1.5 mm max bore with stock sleeves and thought that would be a cheaper way to get into the 13+ range than resleeving and boring a 1200 block. I did see that the oem max overbore piston is .50mm. so the best i...

    How MUCH?!?!?!?!?!??!?!?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    so if i'm reading this correctly (if im not let me know). starting in 2007 the registered bikes have been gradually turned into sorn bikes? very interesting if thats correct. unfortunately it does not bode well for the investment potential of mr. max as it risks becoming a beenie baby...

    New motor build

    I am mulling over engine options for a new motor. I am thinking about a venture1300 build is there a better set of cases/ liners or are they all the same? 1-1.5 mm bore is all i need a 1327-1344 motor would work. Will the venture tolerate a 1.5 bore?

    carb woes

    we bought this house because the shop was big enough for my semi tractor. Now there are to many trucks and to much equipment so it lives at work. Its like 28x32 i think. I built my mkII kawasaki in a 10x10 tool shed bought at sears with an ac unit screwed thru the wall. I sometimes wish I were...

    How MUCH?!?!?!?!?!??!?!?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    fine 1047. as long as the rest of the world is on your side. If i had half the bikes I crashed or bought and sold for nothing... I went through a period in the 80's in s.w. florida where i couldn't make it home without another pre 77' honda 750 four in my truck. It seemed like every person that...

    How MUCH?!?!?!?!?!??!?!?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    If there is one thing my dad got me to understand years ago is what makes a collectible vehicle. Growing up in a restoration shop in sarasota fl. (Custom auto restoration svcs.) I watched my dad turn over cars that were never going to be worth anything. He now lives in nashville ga. and owns...
