    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...

    Won't Rev to Redline???

    Hey guys, it's been a while since on the forum. Last season, shortly before winter storage I noticed that my bike won't rev past 8500 - 8700 rpm when running through the gears. Feels like the bike is not getting enough air, and sputters almost like it has a rev limiter. Seems like it's getting...

    '88 Vmax Rev Limiter Recommendations?

    Hi, I've been researching rev limiters and from what I can tell my options are very slim since my bike is pre-1990. So far my plan is to look for an old Dyna 3000 on ebay. All I'm really looking for is something to keep me from over-revving while accelerating hard or accidentally missing a...

    Bike wont rev past 4k, and other weird issues.

    Hi fellas, wondering if someone is able to help me solve the issue I'm having with my problem. The bike just came back from the vales adjusted. Was sitting in the garage waiting to get the scoops and relays back in place. Recently changed fuel filter, spark plugs. Took my fuel pump apart and...

    Won't rev

    Been working on a 90 model, it's got a Stage 7 on it, Vboost eliminated completely, 4 new K&N individual filters. Anyhoo, just did a shotgun treatment on them, had replaced the fuel tank and thought I had some garbage in them, actually they weren't that dirty. The darn thing just won't rev, it...

    Rev limiter

    So I see, for an 85, they had a dyna ignition at one time and now the other one here I see. Is it TCI or something like that. What I am curious is there anything that can just give me an rpm limiter and that's it. Just curious if there is a cheaper option just to use as a safety precaution until...

    Rev Limiter Ideas

    Alright I had an idea to use a adjustable RPM switch as a rev limiter. Now the idea is at a set rpm is to cut the power to the TCI or the coils. Now the question is what would be safer on the electronics. Cutting power to the TCI or to the coils? I'm thinking cutting power to the coils would be...

    My Dyna 3000 and Rev Limiter??????

    Late model Dyna 3000. I've got my rev limiter set at 9,000. Last night was the first time I've pushed my 94 to that. It's been mainly the bike I take when my Wife can go along. Seemed to me that it cut the available power at 9,000 RPM but kept climbing. I thought the Dyna was a more positive...

    Mythbusters: OE Rev limiter and overrev dangers

    So, I am new to the Vmax, but not at all new to street bikes, and wringing their guts out. As I am sure most of you have experienced its real easy to miss that 1-2 shift when you're leaning into a wheelie and struggling to watch the tach out of the bottom of your eye. I've read the service...

    Anybody Have a Design for a Rev Limiter

    I just can't bring myself to spend $300.00 to have an adjustable rev limiter without asking first. Does anybody have a workable / buildable design for an adjustable rev limiter? Something that would do incriments of 500 rpm or so. One that will shut down the boost, or? Thanx in advance to...

    sorta slow rev, and slow return to idle

    Here's my story. Put max heads/cams etc. on Venture 1300. Rebuilt the carbs. Stayed with all the stock max carb setup, but used the coasting enrichener diaphragms from the venture. Motor fires and runs, but it doesn't want to stay at one idle speed and when I rev it from idle to about 3-5k...
