    late model wire harness

    I need a 1990+ wire harness, the newer, the better. I don't want one that's been modified. If it had the stator wires soldered, that's OK, but would prefer one stock. Thanks.

    Cdi icu unit confusion for late gen 1

    I've blown the unit, moisture inside it. Bur when I removed it it is the yellow sticker 85-89 Now I'm confused as the bike is a 1998 so it should be the newer icu in. It looks like it's a spare. My question is should the old Cdi run in a 1998 bike but make it run a bit rough? Or is my...

    Clutch slip + late engagement

    Noticed my clutch slipping recently when I really get on it. It's intermittent...which seems odd. Bike only has 6,500 miles on it. Also, the clutch doesn't engage until the lever is almost completely released. Not sure if these issues are related...or if I just need a new clutch. Anyone seen...

    Late clutch bite

    Hi all put a new clutch in the max, now the clutch bites very late, going to replace the fluid as it's very old, the clutch doesn't seem to be slipping, do you think old fluid/air could cause this?

    WTB Late model (43mm) fork cap bolts/plugs

    The hex heads on both my fork cap bolts were rounded off and a socket would just spin. I had to drill and hacksaw them out! What a PIA! The shrader valves are ok but the cap bolt/plugs are shot. Does anyone have a pair of these for sale?

    Late winter ride

    Took the Max out last Sunday when it got up to a balmy 38 degrees and the roads were (mostly) dry. Took my new Hero HD camera along, mounted to the airbox lid to give an "over the handlebars" point of view. Unfortunately due to size limits on photobucket, I can't really upload a HD version, it...

    Here are some pics of Hayabusa calipers, R1 rotors, and Sean Morley adapters on a 85 Vmax. It sucks that one of the rotors I got is warped though. Now I have to take everything back off and get some more rotors.:bang head:
