    Suspension adjustments

    So this 2015 VMAX is a bit tall for my tastes, will changing the settings on the stock suspension help at all? I'm already thinking about a new Corbin seat, I've heard it's a good 1/2 inch shorter, what other options do I have for lowering it?

    Main jet adjustments

    I am still trying to sort out my 91, and I wondered if anyone that needed to change their main jet size can tell me how it ran before they sorted it out.

    Adjustments after installing K&N air filter

    I am finally planning to install the K&N air filter for my 2004 V-max (one piece, not the 4 pods). The guy who convinced me to buy it said I'd simply need to adjust some screws X amount of turns. What do I need to do to the fuel mixture to ensure it runs well? I have no modifications to my...

    Idle Mixture Adjustments

    I was cleaning the carbs on my '85 Max the other day, and noticed 2 of the idle mixture screws were missing the "O" ring that goes onto the idle mixture screw "stack". Yamaha does not sell this "O" ring separately. does anyone know where I can get an "O" ring that will fit?
