    I thought I got away with mirror problems NOT !!

    I thought I got away with minor problems NOT !! Last spring when I dropped my bike in my garage I thought I replaced the few parts that got any damage at all. I was detailing my Vmax today I found something I missed. Cover 3 got scuffed on the edge, it isn't deep at all just the paint...

    1st And 2nd Gear Problems

    Took the the bike out for a ride on the intersate for about 13 miles, when i got to the off ramp it would not go into first gear only down to netural and then it would grind a little going into 2nd, but all other gears are fine. I was told it might be a bent shift fork? Any ideas? Thanks.

    Tranny problems?

    I have a 2005 max with a strange problem. I'll try to give my interpretation of the problem with my limited knowledge. If I go through the gears gently the problem doesn't show up. If I nail it hard, it appears like I am tapping the clutch. The rpm goes up quickly and then it starts pulling...
