    max running problems

    Long time story here. I bought max from guy who was trying to repair it and have had enought :ummm:. Problem was that max won't run correctly. It did not rev as it should and backfired. Making things not easy, sometimes it did run quite good. First I tried to use shotgun method to clean carbs...

    Star rider performance aka max flow exhaust?

    Hi I’m just reading up on a ton of exhaust systems dreaming of a full system someday. I’ve posted before about exhausts but now I’m wondering about the max flow systems. The street system mostly. 4 into 2. I’ve heard they are basically a ufo exhaust. I’m trying to get as much power out of a full...

    So, the Max got a stablemate on Saturday

    I'm not sure if you'd call it a little brother or a big brother, but their intended design is very much the same. I haven't had much of a chance to ride it anywhere but my storage facility parking lot, but this thing is STUPID. A quarter throttle at 3k rpm in the first 3 gears sets...

    Any Max guys own a Rocket3

    So it's been probably 5-6 years now since I owned my Max, since then I've been on a 03 Z1000, then a 15 Z1000, and now a Scout. The Z's were a lot of fun, but I was just out of control on them. Too fast, too tempting. Put myself back on a sporty-ish cruiser to try and slow down, and my focus...

    Half a Max?

    First time owner 89 70k very nice condition. That being said here's the discovery at idle he's only firing on the left side, confirmed that right plugs are sparking. When riding he is fine and vboost is working, OH MY GOSH! So planning on shotgunning the right carbs, sound like a plan? Just...

    Not Max parts, but maybe someone needs them?

    I've got a set of stock Yamaha side plates to mount a backrest on a 2002 Roadstar. No backrest, just the side plates. The chrome is 99.9 perfect. No scratches or other defects. They sell new for $200.00... eBay has them for around $100.00. $70.00, I'll pay shipping.

    Plugs from my 93 Max

    Well I had some time today after a lil ride :biglaugh: to see what the plugs looked like from the previous owner. Here they are. I know this isn't a throttle chop...but it looks a lil lean to me. As far as I know, it's completely stock. Exhaust everything. Thoughts?
