    1989 vmax epa sticker location

    Hi guys: I just restored an 89 vmax, and took it to Ca DMV to get registered. I had to have the numbers verified, they were good. But there is supposed to be a sticker on it that shows something about whether it is a 49 or 50 state bike, and neither I nor the verifier could find one...

    upgrading 1989 with 1997 motor

    Hi guys, first post here. Here is the deal, I got a 89 that turned out to have motor siezed, and sat for long time. I cleaned carbs, got it running, and it had horrible noise in it, sort of like major piston slap. When I rode it, it was just too much noise louder on acceleration, same on...

    1989 VMAX carb fouling and rebuild.

    I did this write up so that if I ever need to do again, it’ll be available. My 1989 VMAX wouldn’t run anywhere near idle without choke starter. After several partial clean attempts, I gave up, totally removed carburetors, and rebuilt. This is a summary of parts of the rebuild that I hope...

    1989 (Canadian) starter choke

    My choke has no stop points for Full and Half choke. Spring loaded so I have to manually hold on the choke during cold start. Works well but have to stay with the Bike untill warms up enough to kill choke. Any Ideas. I do not have the correct manual that matches my carb setup.
