    neck bearings & grease

    I went for a ride through the twisties 2 days ago and noticed my steering felt "heavy". I also noticed my slow stops were getting a bit sloppy & very slow ridding was getting harder to stay straight. So I jacked up the bike and got into the upper & lower neck bearings. I found the grease was...

    Duplicate neck sticker

    Ok my little wheels are already spinning about restoring # 217. I plan on powder coating the frame but want the stock sticker back on the neck. Does any one know if I can get a duplicate sticker from Yamaha or any where else that makes them.

    Perko Modded fuel neck

    Well I just recently noticed that the gas cap I have isn't the stock one that came on Vmaxes. I guess when previous owner bought the corbin seat they modified it with a rubber 2" reducer down to a 1 1/2" that accepted a Perko filler neck, I guess so it was higher in the seat. I never noticed it...

So I loosened up the 1 1/8'' nut on the upper triple clamp, loosened the lower clamp bolts for the fork tubes, and then I tightened the pair of crown nuts with a hammer/punch until this passed the...

    Gas Filler Neck

    Has anyone seen directions on how to extend to gas cap filler neck on a Max? I know I've seen it somewhere. I have a Corbin seat with the damn trap door and it's really hard to top off the tank when you can't see the top.
