    carb adjustment help

    What is the screw for that is just over the idle screw to the right that if I turn it to the right my idle goes up and to the left it goes down. I used a straight head screw driver on it?

    Choke adjustment

    Searched for any info on this, no joy. Are the little forks that pull the choke plungers out adjustable, I ask this because I noticed choke on number 1 carb isn't being pulled out as much as the others, there are some tiny screws that look like they might do just that but I thought I would ask...

    Mixture screw adjustment w/vacuum gauge??

    Anyone here recommend or set their idle mixture screw while the vacuum gauge is hooked up, looking for peak rpm? I have tried adjusting it listening for stumble and then out for peak RPM, but I think my hearing is shot from being around turbine engines my whole life. I can't hear that...

I didn't fiddle with new pilot air adjustment and the bike is at a perfect idle, if I bip the throttle it returns nicely to 1000 rpm. When I took it for a ride, I noticed around 4000 to 4500...

    Idle Adjustment

    Ok, I am new to the Vmax scene. I have recently bought my first and loving it. I have noticed that the bike seems to idle a little slow. So slow, it will sometimes stall, when stationary in traffic if you don't keep the rev's up. I have tried increasing the idle speed using the adjuster and it...

    Cam Chain Tensioner Adjustment

    Hi all, Picked up a 1997 V-Max Canadian import a few months ago. Since I had it it's been making a ticking noise, happening at pretty much all revs and on the overrun. After thinking it was the valves out of adjustment I had this done and the noise was still there. It's coming from the rear...

    Valve adjustment shims

    Hello all, 1st post. I have looked over the entire site and actually found a great write up on doing a valve adjustment.. The problem is, is that it mentions nowhere what diameter shims to use. Does anyone have this info?

    Overly sensitive adjustment?

    Well I've been attempting to sync my carbs for a month now (don't want to rush into anything) I even bought a new digisync (works great). They are "in" right now (172-174) digisync numbers but adjustment was a bit difficult. After setting the throttle cables I started with carb #2 then moved to...

    Valve Adjustment

    Doing my first Valve Adjustment on my 1990 VMax and I found 7 tight valves, 3 intakes measuring .003, + 4 exhaust measuring .009.

    V-boost adjustment

    Just recently bought a 2000 and the v-boost kicks in around 6000rpm, Does anyone know how to adjust it so it kicks in sooner like around 4500rpm? Or can you completely turn it off so its on fulltime?
