    Odd line on battlax tyres

    I went to the isle of man TT last week. The max had a good few hard runs and defended her honour admirably against all manner of crotch rockets. But my mate then asked a question about his rear tyre (also on a gen one max, and both of us running 17 inch rears and battlax tyres, albeit different...

    Odd Electrical problem-need help.

    Hello all, I have a '96 Vmax that has an odd electrical issue. Bike fires up fine(new battery& plugs installed before issue). Bike has COP, V-boost switch, & fan switch-all work normally. Never had a problem until 3 weeks ago. Riding along it backfires then stalls. Pulled over, re-started...

    odd glitch.

    I installed the new regulator up under the seat a week ago. Voltage reads 14.0 to 14.1 at anything over 1500 rpm. It drops to 13.7 or so at idle. Voltmeter draws power from the trigger for the low beam relay. There is a slight voltage drop of about .5 volts at this point from voltage measured...

    Odd Problem

    Today I was checking the bike to see if I have a wrist pin problem by pulling the plug wires off the spark plugs while the bike is running. Didn't find a wrist pin problem but I did notice that when I pull the number 1 plug wire the bike idle did not change. If I pull the other three plug...

    LED taillight with an odd problem

    I bought this cheap little taillight off ebay and was pleasantly surprised at how it looks and works....originally buying it as just a plate light I now think it can function nicely as a brake/tail light also. It seems to function as it should with the ignition on....taillight on...

    Odd ball mod

    Okay I have an 04 Vmax. On the left side near the "scoop" there is a small metal toggle switch. I thought it might be for the tail light or headlight to cut off the power. That wasn't it. I thought it might be to disable the bike so if someone tried to steal it. Nope. Turns out it is a three...

    Odd engine rythm when not on the gas

    Ok, sort of hard to explain, but basically when i am rolling along any speed (eg 35mph for example), i am holding the throttle slightly open to maintain speed. Instead of giving an even Purrrrrrrrrrr sound, it almost sounds like it is missing, but you can give it boot and it does not miss at...

    Odd sync problem....need help!

    Working on trying to get my carbs sync'd and am seeing some odd behavior. I built a 4 port synchronizer using clear vinyl tubing and ATF (Like this one) What I am seeing is that after getting everything balanced (all carbs within about 1" of each other), I will run the RPMs up to about 4K...

    Ok, so my '86 Max has great spark on the front and will run on the front 2 cylinders. However, the rear cylinders have no spark when the starter is hit. Now whats really odd, is that they will spark ONLY when I shut off the key switch. I turn the motor over, nuthin. I shut the key off and...

    turn signals acting odd?

    Anyone else's turn signals go the normal pace for the first 10-15 blinks and then speed up a few times, slow back down and speed up again? The stockers are not on my bike but the new ones still use a regular bulb. Short somewhere in the wiring or?

    Odd clicking sound from the rear diff

    Sorry if I dropped this topic in the wrong spot, but I wasn't too sure. At any rate. Yesterday I noticed a odd clicking sound while I was backing up the Max. This is with the engine off, in neutral, clutch out. It was steady, it seems to make the noise, stop and come back again as the tire...
