    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...

    Gen 2 chain drive.

    I have only heard of one gen2 vmax with chain drive that was done by Mad Max. Is there anyone else know of this done. If I ever move to a Gen 2, I would want a chain drive.

    Cam chain replacement

    Ok...so I'm thinking whilst the motor is out and headless I will replace the camchains...when I bought the bike I got 2 new, in packet Yamaha ones. I'm thinkin I could leave the motor upside down (on engine stand). Pop out rivet, add new chain forming one double length chain, flip motor...

    Rear Cam Chain Tensioner Leaking

    Quick question, Is it possible to remove the rear camchain tensioner to install a new gasket without having to go through the timing procedure and subsequently removing the front camchain tensioner/setting the timing? The reason for doing this is I am experiencing a leak from the tensioner...

    Chain drive hits the streets

    This is really the conclusion of the chain drive project from the other thread. Finally getting some Spring type weather so I managed to get some test runs. Apart from some minor adjustments it's pretty well done. To recap: I basically built the engine from bits from another busted Vmax...

    Headed to buy a chain drive bike in th morning.

    Found a bike that needs a little work but it has a mad max chain drive on it and some other nice options. If it's decent I will buy it and bring it home to clean up and get running again. I'll post pictures once I get back with it.

    Any chain drive bikes for sale?

    Wanted to do something with my bike but so little of it was going to be used, it just didn't make sense. So I'm exploring other options. I'd also consider a nice RSTD shaft or chain.

    Lehigh Valley person to work on Cam chain?

    I was wondering if any of you guys know of a good place to have someone look at this and diagnose for sure? I had a guy do work on the side named Chris Kunkle many years ago and lost touch. There are not to many people I trust to get this done right. Thoughts, and rough idea on price? The...

    The chain drive project

    I have thought about this several times but really had no real desire to pull apart my own bikes for the sake of a chain. But that has now changed a little as a situation has arisen where I basically have some parts at my disposal to play around with. I'll document as I go for interests sake...

    Oil leak at rear cam chain tensioner

    I have a leak at the cap bolt washer on the tensioner. Is this just a plain ole crush washer I can pick up at a parts store? The Ron Ayers parts fiche only shows the entire tensioner assy. for $91. I don't think so. Anyone replaced this before? Thanks, Randall

    Super Cool Key chain

    It started as a mens bracelet. Wax cotton cord, with sterling silver beads. And a cool round coin, about 50% the size of a dime. I also used a mini skull. Also made of sterling silver. I believe both the bracelet and the skull are made by GOOD ART HOLLYWOOD. I found them both on...

    Cam chain tensioner

    I was checking the valve clearances and cam chains, when I noticed the front cam chain had some free play. I took a video to see if the free play is normal or if I should replace the cam chain tensioner. What do you guys think? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FPW8vPawdSc

    Chain drive info and pictures

    Well guys Sean Morley got me hooked on engine cases sleeved and setup for a chain drive. So now I am building a 1428 chain drive with 8.5:1 pistons and H beam rods, pretty much all the goodies to make this motor take the turbo I am putting on it. Ideal goal with this bike is to get...
