    Retainer ring bolts

    Are two of the clutch retainer ring bolts special shear bolts? I just snapped two of them off approaching 70 in./lb and I'm super frustrated. Then I looked at Lvlhead's page and his bolts look totally different. Mine look like factory bolts but were all 10mm. The two that snapped are obviously...

    Rear Exhaust stopper ring

    Does anyone know if the rear exhaust stopper ring is supposed to be a tight fit on the pipe and hold the pipe in? It is #6 on bikebandits schematic for a 95 Vmax. Mine slips on and off easily and I just installed a new gasket (#5). I tighten the muffler band really tight and I can pull the...

    Ring & Pinion Help!!

    The Max started to whine and vibrate on deceleration so I took it in to the mechanic. He said that I broke the pinion shaft and to get it fixed I need to get the whole package ring and pinion. I don't know any thing about it. Does that sound right to you guys? Mike

    Dreaded "0" ring facts

    I, like many others, would like to put this to rest once and for all. Speculation, hear-say and 21 years of hearing this supposedly problem over and over, it's time to deal with the facts and reality. I'll start out by saying there never was or is an oiling problem, period. I want to be...
