    Hi all! I have a 98 runs great and I am ready to do some mods. I just ordered VooDoo exhaust and I am considering doing a carb kit and K&N filters. I live in Colorado and have been told to not do the carb kit.... due to our elevation. Any Ideas??? :ummm:

    Issues with 98 vmax

    I bought a 98 v max with 3,700 miles on it. Typical issues, former owner left gas in it for over 4 years. I tore down the carbs and cleaned them and then put the new parts in out of the k and l build kit. I did not replace the vacuum diaphragms as they looked good. I took the gas tank out and...

    WTB Stock Muffler for 98 Vmax

    Hi Guys... I'm in need of a stock muffler for a Gen 1. I don't need the header pipes. Condition needs to be no rust on chrome and no road rash please. They can be drilled since I can reverse that. I gutted mine completely years ago and want to quiet it back down. Thanks! Jim

    Cdi icu unit confusion for late gen 1

    I've blown the unit, moisture inside it. Bur when I removed it it is the yellow sticker 85-89 Now I'm confused as the bike is a 1998 so it should be the newer icu in. It looks like it's a spare. My question is should the old Cdi run in a 1998 bike but make it run a bit rough? Or is my...

    Frame Rust '98

    As I was putting my exhaust back on I saw some rust on the bottom of the frame a few inches behind the sidestand. Can I just have a gusset plate welded over it? It is a 20yr old scooter I don't think I want to find a frame and swap it out. Included some snapshots. Thanks in advance.

    Power difference between 96 and 98 models

    So, what makes this so? Looking at the 1996 models, they came with 140 hp rating. That's a huge, I said huge, difference from the below 100 hp of the 1998 models. Where did they hide it? Airbox? Heads? Exhaust?

    Coolant leak after hose replacement 0n '98

    Like the title says I replaced the coolant hoses on my 98 vmax as they appeared to be original and were pretty sketchy. Bought some made in China silicone hoses as they were much cheaper than oem. Seemed to go well but I saw a drip at the large hose at the bottom of the radiator where it goes...

    First time clutch job with shift segment on '98

    Clutch was slipping a little so I decided to replace disks. Ordered a Barnett Clutch Spring Conversion Kit and their friction and steel plates. Of course that was before I researched it and saw that that is not the way most folks go. Read this how to post...

    Front tire leaking around the bead 98

    Front tire is slowly leaking around the bead. I was wondering if certain years have this problem? Since, mine is a 98 and has the black rims. Is this only happiness with the black rims? It's a new front tire. It has 1000 to 1500 miles. After reading in the wheels/tires section. It seems like...

    98 V max won't crank

    So I took the battery out of my 98 v-max last fall, charged it and put it in my heated basement on a wood block. Took it out last week, charged it at 2 amps overnight and threw it in my v max. Went to start it, lights came on, but no vboost sound and nothing else happened. Made sure it was in...

    Just picked up a 98 model that's been DynoJett'd, 155's according to the documentation I was given, including a dyno run where it pulled 110 hp and 77 lbs of torque. It looks like there are stock needles in the kit too, so assumed they've been added too, bike has Slip-on Trapps with 14 discs...
