    Pinion Video - Too Loose?

    I have a 2007 with 3500 miles. And I'm not sure if its gotten worse but after putting on my windshield some drive line noise has become very apparent. It's worse at higher speed for sure, in both 4th and 5th gears. So after reading I decided I'd pull the wheel and rear diff and check the...

    Clutch feels dead...broke? loose?

    Hey guys. Getting my bike out after keeping it warm all winter. Tried starting it couple weeks ago, gas was spewing out the exhaust and also leaking from the carbs, it was a mess. It was turning over, tried to start it til battery died then did research, float stuck maybe, etc... I knocked on...

    Rear brake pedal loose

    Hello, I noticed the rear brake pedal on my bike is kind of loose and too close to the crankcase cover. Is this normal? I followed the instructions on this periodic maintenance document but everything seems well adjusted. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IwbRx67CL-g&feature=youtu.be Cheers...

    Left rear header is loose?

    Installed some Supertrapps this weekend without much trouble but I noticed that the left rear header had some "play" in it. It'd move about 1/2" front to back like it's loose. Ran out of time to pull the exhaust covers to see whats going on. Is this normal? Or something to be concerned about? To...

    Rear Fender Seems loose

    Just as it says, my rear fender shakes like crazy when i'm riding down a typical road with bumps and small pot holes. I thought it was just a few loose bolts, but gut under and tightened the only 2 I could see. It made a small improvement but still shakes and makes a bit of noise when doing so...

    88 Stock Coil - Plug Wire Loose

    Ok, newbie question here. Background first: I removed the battery on the VMX I bought a month ago to get a good look at it and charge it. In the process I "loosened" the one of the plug wires as it goes into the coil - passenger side - ha ha! I am getting random backfiring and a discolored...

    Cleaning Up Loose Ends Around The Carbs

    I'm finally pretty satisfied that my carb adjustments are about as close as I can make them. Since there are no covers for the Air / Fuel Screw Holes, I wanted to do something to seal them against moisture entering or Fuel / Air leaking. I keep everything that is left over from any job so I...

    Loose front end?

    I've noticed recently that my front end feels a lot looser than it used to. Going slow speeds and hitting bumps in the road it just feels like it wobbles around way too much. Anyone experience this? known cause/fix? Thanks

    I knew I had a screw loose

    ok I have been riding my bike for 3 years thinking that a carb tune is coming very soon. I've had a problem under full throttle from 6000 where it like coughs then continues to accelerate but never seemed to have the power my first vmax had. Ok I am blaming this on old age and the fact I just...

    Exhaust flange nuts coming loose?

    So this past weekend, my rear left header came loose and came out of the Y connector (walker pipes). Tightened everything back up but the nuts seem to be loosening each time i check now. Is it OK to put locktite on these? Or maybe some sort of lockwasher? Some guys I see putting anti-seize...

    Loose at the exhaust pipe gaskets...

    Hey guys! I've got an 85 with 28k and Kerker 4-2. Lately it's been making some odd noises that I've narrowed down to exhaust leaks. I bought new gaskets that go to the heads, but they seemed fine once I started disassembly. I did find that the rear pipes are very loose where they're clamped...

    Loose swingarm bolts

    A quick note. My '85 had a 170/80 15 Mettzler rear, and a pronounced speed wobble at 110mph. When I changed the tyre yesterday, I went back to stock size, also noticing that although there was no side movement in the swingarm I could detect, the RH swingarm bolt was quite loose. So I torqued...

    Front pegs loose

    My front pegs on my '96 are so loose & sloppy that they make my clutch lever look like a finely machined piece of art. I'm not that worried about it, I figure I can always remove the pin, drill the hole bigger & install a grade 8 bolt, I'm just wondering if this is a common VMAX thing or a lot...
