    1989 vmax epa sticker location

    Hi guys: I just restored an 89 vmax, and took it to Ca DMV to get registered. I had to have the numbers verified, they were good. But there is supposed to be a sticker on it that shows something about whether it is a 49 or 50 state bike, and neither I nor the verifier could find one...

    R1 regulator location

    Last year I put in an R1 voltage regulator and stuck it under the passenger seat. The regulator went bad and was distroying batteries. I replaced it today and after a short ride I took the seat off and the regulator was already way too hot to handle. Got to find a better place to put it but...

    VIN plate location question

    Is there a reason for different locations of VIN plate sticker? On most VMaxes I have seen it's on the steering head tube, but on mine it is on the lower frame tube on the right side of the bike. Next to it is a CMVSS sticker. Is the placement a feature on Canadian models?

The good news is I didn't loose the spring but the bad news is that I couldn't see where it came from and...

    HID Ballast location advice

    Hi guys, I wanted to know where should I install the ballast ? It's not a slim one. I tried the air scope, but it looks impossible. Since I have a small headlight cowl, I just put it for the meantime behind the speedometer. But I would prefer to hide it, to avoid anybody to get a free ballast...
