    Looking to get back in the saddle!

    Hey guys, as some of y'all know, I sold both my Max and my wife's bike to take care of some bills and a sudden thing that popped up which made me sell off the toys to facilitate dealing with it. Also I am looking to move and wanted to do some home repairs. In the middle of all of this, I can't...

    I went down last fall, need help getting back to 100%

    Hey guys I was cut off last fall and laid her down. I'm ok, thought the bike was ok... I probably forgot to stabilize the fuel after my accident so I'd like to blame the gas. I've siphoned and now I'm running the bike dry so I can start fresh. I did the shotgun method with the carbs on the bike...

    Passenger back rest

    I'm wondering if there is a lower profile back rest that can bolt onto my existing? I'll get a closer pic later but it appears to me the top portion of the back rest could be unbolted and maybe a much shorter, like stock grab bar style could maybe replace it. If so I could swap it on and off...

    Glad to see the forum back up

    For a few hours maybe longer I couldn't get the forum to load. I hope it was Gary doing some work on it and not a hack.

    Got the Max back from the shop.

    Thankfully, the weather held off, and Tim got the Max done this afternoon. I was planning to ride straight home, but the weather held off, and the bike ran so damn well I had to go for a ride. With the new tires, brakes, shocks and tires, the bike rides, stops and handles great! The steering...

    Long Distance Back Pain Fix?

    Anyone have any suggestions for how to alleviate upper back pain on long (+2hr) trips? I tend to get burning pain in my lats the worst, with some pain between my shoulders, but definitely the worst in the lats, and usually only on one side or the other for some reason. It happens on both the...

    Oil analysis back from Blackstone Labs (Pic)

    Well my results came back from Blackstone. This is the second oil analysis. The first one contained the oil from the PO, and could only assume it was Yamalube. The oil results from the 1st screening indicated alot of wear and silicon (bad or loose air filter) in the oil. Chaulked it up to...

    Cobra Exhaust back to Stock

    I just got my first Vmax 2003. The past owner changed the Stock exhaust to a cobra 4-4 Set up. I have read poor things about the set up and loss of horse power and am looking at changing back to the stock system that was supplied with the bike. The past owner put different jets in the carbs...

    Back From Germany (Pictures for Patriots)

    I recently returned from a 3-week business trip to assist a program at Ramstein Air Base in Germany. It was a great time, and on my time off I visited a couple WWII American cemeteries. It's quite a somber moment. Many of you know I'm retired US Air Force. I spent a few hours at each cemetery...

    Right exhaust is slightly louder/has more back pressure than the left

    Could this be jetting or bad synchronization, or am I looking at something worse? When the bike is cold its a lot more obvious, but when its warm its still the same; I have factory headers with a 4-2 supertrapp open ended exhaust and the right side pipe has more back pressure/is louder than the...

    Just got my scooter back last Tuesday....

    from the bike repair shop. I dropped it off two weeks ago to have that pesky oil leak fixed. Also, the carbs were in dire need of synching because they were backfiring especially at low speeds. Now Mr. Max rides like a new bike!!!:eusa_dance: Where I hadn't ridden in almost six weeks, I felt...
