    Oil Leak - oil filter bottoming out?

    I have had my 2003 Vmax since 2009 with nary an issue. Last fall I was in the midst of moving and drove the motorbike to the new house/garage. I think I went over a speed bump a bit fast and it felt like it bottomed out. A few days later I checked on the bike and for the first time ever...

    best air filter system

    I have a 1985 Yamaha Vmax 1200 and wonder what others use for their air filter system. Is stock the best? Thank you

    replacement gas filter

    This one fits into the OEM space, w/a bit of diameter to spare. If you want to have it snug, use a bit of foam or cardboard to shim it. I was speaking w/my mechanic, and he said that even w/his shop discount, a OEM Yamaha filter for a VMax was $23. I figured I could find something comparable...

    K&N oil filter failure

    Just rebuilt the engine on my 94 a couple of weeks ago and opted to install a K&N oil filter cartridge. This morning was finally time for the break-in oil change. When I removed the filter cover, one of the metal ends was separated from the filter media. The glue seems to have split in 2 places...

    Anyone got these parts kicking around? I'd be happy to send you the original frame crossbar if you need it to replace the modified one. PM me with price, shipping, etc. Thanks.

    06 Vmax Delkevic exhaust, K&N Airbox and Filter, Stage 7 jets???

    First Dyno on this bike. I was curious as to why the HP was actually a bit less with the Tboost set at 3000 rpm than it was with it set at 6000 rpm across the board? Someone has the logical answer but fill me in if you could enlighten me. Also I was told that the main jets may be a little large...

    Y cover on airbox

    Per Sean, I dug out the Y section for the airbox and put in 1/4" spacers. Guess what? It runs BETTER! Before I converted to COPs, the bike would want to die at idle when it got hot, so I bumped the idle to 1250. (figured it was the carbs not being synced - hadn't gotten the sync tool...
