    Ignition conversion

    Short history. 88, igeatech, cop's, drilled exhaust. Been battling an intermittent ignition drop on rear 2 cyl for some time now. Replace cdi with ignatech and have had it happen twice since. Purchased a used wiring harness last week to go through to install. Would there be any advantage to...

    5.75 Daymaker LED conversion.

    I've been thinking of putting one of the Amazon clones into the stock headlight bucket on my 85. Question is, will it fit with little or no modification to the light or bucket. I'm happy with the H4 I have in there, but like the look, and reliability of LED. Anyone do this, and how much of a...

    320 conversion

    Picked up a used set of FJR rotors for dirt cheap. Planned to buy new but these were too good a deal to pass up. I ground down the top edge of the pads since the calipers ride slightly higher on the leading edge. I like the FJR rotors. Fewer buttons look cleaner, less cluttered. Using...

DD I am pretty set on getting the Barnett conversion and the HD springs (90lbs). With that being said, should I...

Set the box for short dwell and one revolution before spark. Fired it over and runs pretty nice. Box is set for you Vmax guys. Have...

    Morley's Hayabusa conversion

    I wanted to let you guys know I did Sean's dual hyabusa brake upgrade with stainless lines and 320 mm rotors. Holy. Crap. This thing is awesome. Way more confidence inspiring and much better than stock. It's a 2000 so I already had the updated brakes. Damn, if you're thinking of upgrading, do...

    Who knows more about this conversion?

    I came across this picture of a Vmax that is probably done in Japan. There was a link to www.kid-cf.com that has a similar Vmax on its website. Does anyone know more about this amazing conversion, and whether it is a one-off? The fender/saddle is awesome!

    Diversion or just sabotage? Dodgy 17" wheel conversion

    I didn't have much knowledge about Vmax specific techs like 15" rim with massive bias tyre when I bought the bike. After reading much wheel/tyre discussion on this forum I discovered that the rear tyre on my Vmax is actually 150/70 ZR17 size that I considered a bonus which was never mentioned in...

    R6 front wheel conversion

    This is my 99 R6 front wheel conversion done by PCW. Gave them my forks, that needed rebuilding anyway, triple tree and front axle. the front forks are machined to clear the wider brake rotor location, as are the brake caliper mounts. Spacers are made to fit the Vmax axle to the R6 wheel. Only...
