    '89 Vmax for sale w/ many extra hard parts, South Texas, $4,800 OBO (was mine)

    Believe the current owner is more of a GoldWing man, as he has his eye on two of them! Sold this bike to him a few months back, told him I'd post it up to help him sell it. Currently has an early-model front wheel and late-model rear wheel, both painted graphite or black, with new Shenko tires...

    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?

    Extra port? WTH?

    OK, so I'm rebuilding a set of VMAX carbs. Actually, I have two sets, one that I'm rebuilding, and one I'm using for parts. Here's what's confusing me. One of the carb bodies has an "extra" port with the remnants of a rubber hose coming off the end of it, and I don't see this port on my 98...

    Extra fuel filter

    Can I put an extra fuel filter after my fuel pump and before the carb inlet? I think a tiny speck of something has blown out of my fuel pump and clogged my pilot jet in carb #1 (It makes no vacuum until about 2500 rpm). This is extremely frustrating, as I thought things were going to be ok when...

    anyone got any extra stock blinkers that gotta go?

    I know this is the wrong place to post this, but I figured it'd be answered quicker here. I just smashed a bird thru my left front turn signal and wondered if any of ya that have done mods want to get rid of your stock front left signal, or both to keep it simple. I'd be interested...

    Extra vacum port?

    I've got an extra vacum port on the left front carb, over the throttle cable plate, under the vacum chamber cover, points down and back about 45 degrees. No hose for it that I can see. Nothing said about it in the manual. 1985 model. Should I just cap it or what? :ummm: Thanks

    Extra? Part, What is it?

    I don't know where this goes. I've looked all through the manual and find no mention of it. It has no paint so I think it's an internal part but ?????:ummm:

    How much extra lighting can a V-max handle?

    I know there are some good Sparkies out there that can give me some clues on this topic. Input is greatly appreciated. I have decided to add some extra driving lights to the V-max. Small form factor projector beams are the way I want to go. Two Xenon Gas Discharge Projectors from Hella (55w) or...

    Why did I get extra diaphram springs?

    After not riding for about 15 years, I just bought a 2000 Vmax with a Stage One jet kit and a UFO 4-2 Canister exhaust setup. I was given the stock parts and with them I received 4 - 6" long springs that I determined are diaphram springs. Why would I get extras? Are these changed as part of a...
