    Cannot rev past 6500 RPM under load

    So, I'm a brand new European member but I've roamed around this forum and still I'm unable to fix my bike: I've bought an cursed 85 restricted French Vmax, site unseen, and worst of all, sent a buddy of mine to check and bring the bike (since he was a veteran rider and I've assumed he would...

    I am so happy that a member “Itgoes” connected me with Tim Nash (GURUEDGEAR). Anyone contemplating doing the reflash through Mr. Nash, DO IT. My VMAX now is like a new machine with gobs of power added. Starting October of 2018 we (my mechanic, shop owners and Tim) worked together modifying my...

    Lost power

    Hi guys, on my way home my max suddenly lost most of its power, where as it used to just blast and go on the throttle, it was gradually accelerating. On stopping at an intersection for about 3 seconds, I can smell fuel. On top of that the exhaust starting making a different noise indicating...

    (UK) 1997 Full Power VMax -SOLD-

    Much loved full-power 1997 Vmax 1200 – Selling to fund new project (another VMax!). It's a great looking bike and has been incredibly reliable. This bike is an absolute hoot to ride and, thanks to the chassis upgrades, handles very, very well. It has the greatest road-presence out of any...

    Power difference between 96 and 98 models

    So, what makes this so? Looking at the 1996 models, they came with 140 hp rating. That's a huge, I said huge, difference from the below 100 hp of the 1998 models. Where did they hide it? Airbox? Heads? Exhaust?

    split window VW van leaves forest nap of 40 years under its own power

    I think this is a cool video, about saving an abandoned VW van from the space it 'slept' for 40 years, between two trees in a forest. The parts I like are seeing the guys remove the engine, and carrying it away, slung off strapping looped-over a 2 x 4 they carry on their shoulders. Once they...

    Flow vs power question

    How would a too-open exhaust burn a valve? If a 4-1 pipe went from 2-> 2.25 inches to a huge, open chamber, would that cause any weird problems? Any thoughts on whether it could cause a dip in power when the vboost comes in? Just thinking about things and my frankenpipe.

    Losing power?

    I ran out of gas with my max yesterday (not too uncommon) but after I started it up again it seemed as though I didn't get much power past 5k rpm or half throttle, and when I go over I hear alot of popping but no power. With lower throttle and lower rpm I get the same amount of power and torque...

    5K cruising power loss

    When I cruise with my VMAX around 5k-5.5k RPM it seems like I need to give it more throttle than I should to continue to hold that speed. Also when I drop out of V-boost it feels like I lose far more power than I should coming out of it. At 60mph its fine its just around 75-95 in 5th gear that I...
