    extra air filters makes any difference?

    I want to remove those 4 chrome round caps on the sides of a bike and attach there round external air filters ( sometimes one can see such on harleys). Does it make any difference on riding/starting/ fuel economy? Or just cosmetic thing?

    Power difference between 96 and 98 models

    So, what makes this so? Looking at the 1996 models, they came with 140 hp rating. That's a huge, I said huge, difference from the below 100 hp of the 1998 models. Where did they hide it? Airbox? Heads? Exhaust?

    What a Difference

    When I got my max last year, it had stock head pipes with the Cobra slash cuts. The first thing I did was to get a Voodoo 4-2 through Sean. Last week, I decided to switch mufflers from my UFO megaphones back to the Voodoo slash cuts for a little while...however, I couldn't resist the urge...

    Can you hear the difference betweel FLAC and MP3 320?

    I really couldn't easily hear the difference before. Even with a basic but fairly decent car stereo I could hear no real advantage to loading up my phone with much larger FLAC files, even at home it was hard to tell the difference. I cant justify or afford the speakers I really want and...

    1 year later------ What's the difference?

    If it's 1 thing I appreciate it's the eye of a Vmax rider. From a coffee cup to a magazine ad it seems nothing can slip by their keen eyes. It has been just over a year since I brought this bike home and it stumbled the whole way. Thank you to all that helped me and you know who you are. Worked...

    strange seat difference

    Hi guys, I've just got a second seat and noticed when installing it that it does not have the same indented section as my original. The new one touches and puts pressure on the relay that is under the seat due to the lack of the cut away. The part numbers moulded into the bottom of the seats...

    Does Anything Make A Difference?

    Don't Click on any of the highlighted links unless you want to go there.. Hillary Clinton, in deflecting to Congress over her role in the cover-up of the Benghazi arms-to-al-Qaida-terrorists gunrunning scandal, famously replied, “What difference does it make?” Let’s see. In December 2012, a...

    What Difference Does It Make???????

    To whom much is given Much will be required Luke 12:48 Benghazi, Libya. The stunning part of this story is that Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty killed 60 of the attacking force. Once the compound was overrun, the attackers were incensed to discover that just two men had...

    Difference between a stage 1 and stage 7 kit?

    Curious as I pulled my slides out today and noticed they where drilled. The needles are fat and non adjustable. So I am assuming those are stock. My stage 7 needles are thin and adjustable. I am not sure what is in my carbs. But my Stage 7 carbs have 190 DJ jets for the mains and...

    We can make a difference

    I recieved the following in an email.It seems a little effort may go along way. Did y'all see Diane Sawyer's special report? They removed ALL items from a typical, middle class family's home that were not made in the USA . There was hardly anything left besides the kitchen sink...

    What's the difference between CA & Non-CA carbs?

    I really don't see any difference except the brass spigot (similar to a sync spigot) that comes out of the throat of #2 carb and goes, I believe, to some sort of canister. I think there is a difference in main jet sizes on CA Ventures, but I'm not sure if this is true with the V Max. Are...

    '85 - '92 vs '93-'95 Oil Filter Bolt, any difference?

    I have a '94 VMAX I'm changing the filter on. The head of the bolt got stripped so I drilled and grinded it out. Looking back I wish I would have just welded a beater socket on and removed it that way but I got it out the drilling and grinding method. Just look a lot longer! ha ha Anyways...

    difference between fork braces

    hey all does anyone know the difference between 85-92 vs 93+ oem fork braces? They appear to be a different part number. I assume the mounting holes for the fender is the same but maybe just the difference between the width of the mounting holes for the forks themselves since there is less...

    Difference in size of 85 to 86 front header pipes Does anyone know if the front stock header pipes off a 85 gen 1 will fit an 86 gen 1 vmax without any mods to stock exhaust system.

    difference between US and europe

    just looking at folks pics, it seems that us US folks usually go for the full exhaust/jet kit options first. then start looking at styling. The european folks from what i see most of them have stock headers, so the power isn't the big concern, they do the awesome styling/handling mods whether...
