    Making this old bike look new

    Hey all! I recently acquired an '88 Vmax 1200, which I had previously never heard of but fell in love with immediately. The previous owner had put pretty much as much money as possible into maintaining all the OEM moving parts and had paid a bit less attention to how the bike looked, so I've...

    Making sure Tapatalk is working for y'all.

    Closed the road here for a few days. Brought in a 300T crane. It took the crane company a day to set it up and install the jib. Reached up to the top of a 300' tower, barely. Couldn't get the crane any closer. It was nearly at the maximum radius. Lift capacity was reduced to less than 1T...

    Taking the most powerful production bike and making more power.....

    So today's technology is awesome. 2012 ZX14 Pipe and reflash only by Brock. 219 rwhp and 128 ft lbs of torque.... It awesome to see the horsepower wars back! Lets see Yamaha offer 250 rwhp for the gen 2 from the factory. How cool would that be? Its amazing that adding a pipe and flash only...

    Think Sean is making a mistake :)

    I sent Sean my Fazer 700 carbs hadn't been used in 15 years and it showed. He is sending back these almost new shinny carbs can't possibly be the same ones can they? :clapping::punk::eusa_dance:

    Testing the carbon fiber waters. Might start making it.

    A great guy who I fly with makes carbon fiber parts for airplanes, and he mentioned that he may be willing to help me make parts for my vmax. It will be expensive for me to get into, and it seems that the costly/timely part is making molds, SO, if I make molds for my own carbon fiber vmax parts...

    Making the vmax look "low profile"

    Didn't know where to post this, but....I'm wanting to lower my bike, which has stock suspension and tire height/width. My brother-in-law has a Mean streak and I love the way it looks, but I prefer the power the vmax has. I don't know if I really want to change the rear rim, so I think a ME880...

    Making transmission gears

    I thought I would post this just for interests sake, kinda off topic as these aren't Max gears but are basically similar. They are out of a racing Triumph and I just wanted to show the procedure in making them in detail as to give some insight as to what is involved and what to be aware of if...

    Making Max Mad Again !

    Hey Gang... 22 1/2 years later, and now I decide to do something with my Max. Bought the ArtFibras body kit, braced/double notched the SW, waiting on the HMF exhaust, and 5.5 x 17 wheel from COO, along with other goodies. Battery busted in storage years ago and killed the paint on the engine...
