    Oil Change Help

    Hello all, First time poster here. I have a pretty dumb question, and I'll be honest, I'm a bit embarrassed to ask it. I'm a pretty competent wrench, and have restored quite a few bikes over the years, but this is my first time getting my hands dirty on a VMax. I'm helping out a friend who...

    Fork spring only change

    Is it nessasary to remove the forks to do this? From watching Seans video, it "looks" like you could remove cap, remove nut then remove the spacer/washer and then the spring on the bike? I understand to get the correct oil level/height the forks have to be removed. I also realize that a...

    Valve Cover Gasket Change - Step By Step

    Step 1: Buy a rope Step 2: Hang yourself Actually, just pull the engine out. It might be easier. The inner cover bolts could only be accessed with an allen wrench. 1/4 turns at a time all the way out. Then the timing chain pulled the new gasket off when I tried to install the cover over...

    simple oil change question on my 2015 gen 2 vmax

    Hi Guys, Still having a self battle about selling vs keeping my Gen 2 Vmax. I thought I would change the oil and to be honest it is in winter storage and I didn't even look at it last summer to see if it was just like the gen 1's to do oil changes. It's been awhile since I owned my last...

    Tail light change

    Quick edit, I just noticed there is a user mods section, this might have been better in that thread rather than here as in fabrication terms it was a simple task in reality. Still, its done and posted here now. I Hated the original tail light with a vengeance. One of the first changes to the...

    How to change seating position?

    I find myself putting my feet on the rear pegs on the highway and I have even considered clip ons for the bars. I miss the fit of the CBR I used to have as I find it very hard to keep my back straight on the Vmax, it always wants to curl and I want my knees bent more and my feet further back...

    2012 with 475 miles been sitting... oil change??

    I have a 2012 vmax with about 475 miles on it. I bought it a few years ago and it had to sit in a nice garage for a while because I was not around to ride it. The battery still has enough juice to start it but I am concerned about the oil. It is the original crank case oil and it's old at this...

    slave cylinder clutch change

    Hello, around almost an year ago when I bought my Vmax, when I got home with the motorcycle I noticed a small beautiful oil leak dripping from the pan, as you can see in the picture. I noticed that it leaked only after use for like 2 hours. I noticed also that the clutch master cylinder fluid...

    How do you change your rear shocks?

    Hi, I've just gotten myself a pair of 444's. Is the centerstand enough to jack up the rear to replace the shocks? I'm thinking that the rear part might collapse if I remove both OEM shocks. Anyone with experience?' Thanks!

    Low speed wobble after rear tire change

    I changed my worn out metzeler 880 to michelin commander II and now bike "wobbles" around 40-45mph, it feels like its up and down movement? I can take my hands of the bars when it occurs. I think it made this sometimes with old tire too, but now it is all the time at that speed. Lower or higher...
