    Ignition Fuse (Just a Comment)

    I did a complete COPs conversion on my bike. I used a wire harness and COPs from a 2003 R6 and wired it all in myself. Worked all day on that and replacing a rear valve cover gasket. The gasket sprung a leak, so had to remove it again and re-seal and re-install it (that sucked). Other minor...

    Fuse for the headlight (15amp) blows

    Hi Please help me, I just bought this bike last week (1996 V-Max) and apparently the fuse for the headlight blows all the time. Initially there was a 10 amp fuse in the box, but I found out it should be 15 amp, anyways it still blows. The Bike has modified signal lights and headlights. I...

    Radiator fan motor short circuit

    Recently my max had been blowing fuses on the radiator fan circuit. I installed my own cheap hardware toggle switch to bypass the thermostat so I could kick on the fan whenever I felt like it. That was my first suspect. After going through the circuit, everything seemed to have solid...

    That damn fuse holder!!

    A few of the folks who attended Thunder may remember the minor problem I was having with my '85. Ian rode it in from Buffalo on Friday, and it ran perfectly. Saturday, he went to start it and it was dead. Seems the fuse holder that I recently installed to replace the original (corroded and...

    Dead on the water - PLS HELP!

    Hello everyone! Quasi new member (have been a member since 09, but never posted a question), used to have an '04 VMAX that gave me quite a bit of satisfaction, and almost no grief. I moved to Miami a few weeks ago, and bought my everyday vehicle; a 2006 VMAX. After riding it with no problems...

    No power whatsoever

    Hello all. First time posting on Vmaxforum. I recently removed the stock handlebars and installed a set of drag bars on my 2000 VMax. I fired it up with no trouble moments before slapping the new bars on, but after they were installed I had no power at all. I thought maybe I left the...

    No power after charging. Maybe fuse?

    So I had not taken my max out in a few weeks so I threw on my battery tender over night because I was going to ride the next day. I tried to start it up and nothing. No lights, no fuel pump, no starter, nothing. I checked the main fuse right under the seat and it was still good. I changed it...

    Horn blows turn signal fuse...

    Can anyone tell me why (more often than not) when I am cruising and have my turn signal on and hit the horn that my 10A fuse blows? I have led turn signals on the front and the cbr conversion on the back. Both have resistors wired inline. Also, when that blows, my tach and temp guage go...

    Fuse Blows when breaking

    Was just hoping somebody has encountered this exact thing before so I can stop unraveling parts of my wiring harness looking for a short. Whenever I use the break circuit, weather it's the hand break or the foot break... my headlight dims, no break lights, and if lever/pedal is held down...

    Main fuse keeps blowing

    I have an 89 Max that keeps blowing the main fuse. Started the other day while riding, I'd put the spare in and it would run for a minute, then POP. Now I can't even get the fuse fully seated before it blows. I've already bypassed the keyed ignition switch hoping it was there, no luck. I'm down...

    Blown Master Fuse

    My Vmax lost all electrical power while driving, I pulled the master fuse and it was blown, as soon as I put in a new 30 it blew even without the key on I believe! Any ideas... regulator, stator.... some other item? I know it could be a bad wire but it has only lost the battery a couple...
