    Vmax running on 3 (or 2??) cylinders

    Hello friends. Before I describe my issue I will add disclaimer I am extremely non-tech so pardon my rather layman (and lame) attempt of an explanation here… So I’ve got a 99 vmax in pristine condition, about 2 months ago. (Many thanks to a local member who gave the bike a once-over and...

    Vmax Running on 3 Cylinders

    I was riding with a guy recently who tried to embarrass me in front of the group I was riding with. He was telling me that I know nothing about motorcycles (despite this being my 4th street bike, and I've had dirt bikes when I was a kid .. ) and that it was impossible for my bike to ever have...

    No spark on all cylinders

    2003 stock vmax with only 5300 miles ran perfectly two days ago and went to start this morning and nothing. It cranks over and is getting gas but no spark to all cylinders. I went through the troubleshooting and my pickup coil appears to be shot when I connect the ohm meter to it nothing still...

    running on 3 cylinders

    Hi guys, My Max starts and runs every time, but sometimes the right rear cylinder is not firing. It's funny (haha) that it runs so well that I had trouble being sure if it was running on all 4 or not. I now know the bike well enough that I can recognize it immediately. The strange thing is that...

    '03 misfires between 5000-7000rpm on cylinders 2 or 3. Help!

    This is a spin-off of my thread about jet size with the UFO 4-2 exhaust. My Vmax is an '03 with almost 19K miles on it. I got it a couple hundred miles ago from a previous owner who hadn't ridden it much in the past year. It's got the UFO...

    Running on 3 cylinders?

    So the max runs great but didnt feel 100%. I pulled what I expected to be the suspect plug and started the bike. IT STILL IDLES FINE?! Replaced the plug and pulled another with the same reault. How can it still run (at least at idle) fine with no spark on a cylinder? Confused. What is the best...

    About a year ago I had the carbs on my 1986 Vmax completely rebuilt. About Christmas time or soon after, i forget exactly when, my left rear cylinder quit working. My battery is good. I have switched wires that work from other cylinders, coils, and new spark plugs (twice). I have spark at...

    paint the cylinders and valve covers?

    Hi there, Just a small question. I have some small bald spots on the valve covers and cylinders. Can I use just normal shiny paint or should I have to use Heat-resistant paint which always has a matte finish? The cylinders are shiny at the moment.:ummm: Greetzzzz

    I think that from the start I have been running on 3 cylinders. I finally was able to change my main jets in a 49 stater I bought last October. I went through the bike and had put my Holeshot exhaust from my Cali 05 onto my 49 Stater 05. Was running rich - So I asked for help and it seems to run...
