    Situational Awareness - Please Read

    The other day I rode the Max to work. On the way, I was on a 2-way main road going about 70 MPH. A car pulled out to pass, and was suddenly in MY LANE. I braked hard, and moved as far right as possible (no shoulder - only dirt). The driver stayed in my lane and went past - so we were THREE WIDE...

    Want a full system? Read this:

    If you have a stock gen 1, but want a full 4-2 system with Stage 7 jetting, let me know. My system is currently not identified but some think it may be a Holeshot or UFO. It has 2" headers and slip ons that sound downright mean. My bike sounds amazing and has incredible power but I take long...

    2001 VMAX: Pick-up Coil or Ignitor?? Need verification on Ohms read...

    A couple of days ago, I went out to my 2001 VMAX, it started, but then within a couple of minutes died. It's mostly all stock save for the SuperTrapp exhaust; it started great, got to the end of the driveway to let it warm a bit as usual. After running about a minute there was a significant...

    Gen 2 .....Short Interesting Read

    http://www.yamahapart.com/page/thenewvmax Touches a little bit on the development of the Gen 2. A lot of thought and trial an error went into producing the bike. For instance: I've heard people say before "Why didn't they put upside down forks on the bike"? It's actually mentioned in this...

    Read my plugs, please?

    Prior to doing the "Shotgun", I thought I would check the plug condition. The first photo shows the rear plugs, the next the fronts. You will notice that all the porcelain insulators are on the whitish side, only the right rear has signs of tan colouration. As well, both r.h.s. plugs have a...
