    Here is a set of manuals I bought for my Gen 1's

    I bought this when I owned my Gen 1's and thought I would post it for those who don't have a copy or may not have all the service supplements. service Manual.pdf I hope these help some of you.

    97 vmax i bought came with supertrap pipes

    aside from sound what if any diffrence comes with removing the screwed on baffles ? will it loose/gain any power-torque, float the valves etc or is this strictly for hiperformance modified bikes ? anyone cruise without baffles ?

    It went bad about 2 weeks ago wouldn't start the bike which gets run every week. Won't charge over 12.06 volts and won't start the bike even right after charging. Contacted APEX this Monday 9/19 2016. Talked with Mike the Sales Manager. He E-Mailed me a questionnaire that I filled out right then...

    Bought a New to Me Car Yesterday.

    Paid a lot less than advertised price. $12,995 +++ added BS. It's absolutely like new, even the interior smell. One owner, always garaged. Sold a bike and a boat and found a place for the spare money. Wanted a Challenger but values are holding too high and they weigh too much. This Mustang...

    Bought a used Gen II last month

    This is my second Vmax, the first was a 2004. I think Yamaha was very careful with this new bike to fix nearly everything that people complained about on the Gen I. The Gen II has tons of power up and down the RPM range, so much that I have not yet opened up the throttle completely in the...
