    1st gen vmax clutch

    Anybody in the Phoenix AZ area good with the hydraulic clutch on the vmax? I’ve done every possible thing I can imagine to this damn clutch and it still will not bleed fluid out. I’m done messing with it. I’ve spent too much money and time on it so I need an expert to figure it out. I originally...

    New 1st gen owner

    Hi... I recently purchased a 2005 Max, its the bike I've always wanted but never owned. I call it my bucket bike, I bought it from the original owner, he got it to ride with his son but now his son is into rock crawlers so the bike was garaged for the last 3 years. It's only been down once when...

    carbs rocking in boots 1st gen

    My 2000 is running badly, carb issues i think. I saw that sometimes the carbs don't seat in the boots properly and you get a vacuum leak. Put a hose on a propane torch to get the gas near the boots to see if the idle changed. It seem to change but fluctuating idle is part of my symptoms. So i...

    1st Gen HID lighting

    Anyone find a HID headlamp conversion kit that fits without moding or very little modding on a 97 vmax ? I tried one from my vtx 1300 as they use the same h4 9003 lamp but the lamp legs are to wide to get the yamaha metal ring to fasten. If I wanted to i could order a similar kit and dremel it...

    Setting shift segment (bike thinks 1st is 3rd gear)

    Long story short, I made a few mistakes while putting in a new clutch (with DD mod) and upgrading the shift segment. The first mistake was I forgot to push the shift rod all the way to the left before tightening the nut on the shifter. I went for a test ride, shifted to 2nd, then shifted...
