    Seat Mod questions and thoughts.

    I am a big guy. I keep seeing the mod to make the seats more comfy. Also seems like it would change (raise) peg position slightly. I would love to move the pegs down and back at least an inch or more to make it more comfortable with stock seat now. Does the seat mod make that huge a difference...

    V-Max #4 Purchased: Basic Maintenance / Mod List

    Like the title says, this is the fourth V-Max I've owned in my life. It's a 1993. I've nailed the throttle a few times and it feels much more stable than the 1999 I just sold. Strange.

    Worst Mod?

    I found this picture today. If this belongs to someone on the forum, I'm sorry for what I'm about to say. In MY opinion, this is the worst thing possible to do to a V-Max. I think a 1977 Honda Gold Wing would have been a better choice. :confused2:
