    Kink in fuel line

    Anyone have success in using a normal (nonOEM) fuel line for part from tank to fuel filter? My bike would start and then die straight away. I noticed a kink in the hose, since I am not using the stock that has the u shaped bend. It has lasted a little over a year, but not sure how the kink...

    3rd off the line?

    A friend of mine has been looking at an '85 Vmax which is in exceptional 'showroom' quality. He knew I had an '86, so was asking for my opinion. He has checked the bikes numbers and the serial/frame number ends with 000003. would this make the bike the 3rd Vmax ever made??

    Ok - so what am I dealing with before I am fed a line of BS

    So I made the mistake of loaning my Max out to a friend and another rider went down and slid into my max causing damage to the exhaust. I don't know anything about exhaust work but I do know that I want it fixed properly. A guy in our riding group as offered to take care of the work but I fear...

    Odd line on battlax tyres

    I went to the isle of man TT last week. The max had a good few hard runs and defended her honour admirably against all manner of crotch rockets. But my mate then asked a question about his rear tyre (also on a gen one max, and both of us running 17 inch rears and battlax tyres, albeit different...

    Handle bars seem to out of line?

    I have notice that when I riding the handle bar seems to be pulled back more on the right side, when I have the bike on a rear stand if I move the bars straight the front tire slightly turns to the left:bang head: Is it possible for the handle bar risers to have moved and need to be adjusted...

    Clutch line stock length.

    I need to know the stock length for the clutch line. I want to upgrade my brake and clutch lines, and I can easily measure the brake lines, but the clutch line is routed behind a ton of stuff. Gonna have the shop I go to make up the lines, because the stock straight banjo bolts are a pain when...

    Riding the center line.

    This is just some thing that's been bugging me and felt like discussing it. (this may ramble a bit lol) First off, it seems like a fair amount of bike accidents and deaths are happening around mid Michigan lately. When the stories instantly hit social media (like FB) the comments all seem to be...

    Temp red line

    Got caught in stop and extremely slow traffic for about 30 min and temp needle was creeping up to touching redline. How safe is it to drive at this juncture? Should you pull over and allowing cooling or is it only a problem if it goes into the red zone for an extended/short period of time...

    Todays the dead line

    Todays the deadline for registering your "Assault weapon" in NYS. The State is keeping the number of weapons registered private. The speculation is that the number is so small compared to the amount of weapons in the state, That it would be an embarresment to Cuomo. I hope it doesn't hit the fan...

    Two Line Front Brake

    I'm about to upgrade to braided brake lines. It will be cheaper to run a two line instead of three to the front calipers. Do I just run two identical fittings to the master cylinder? Crush washer between them? Will a need a different banjo bolt?
