    Battery? Won't run?

    I was riding home last night and about 1 mile from my house, the bike just died. When I attempted to restart it but the battery was flat. I know there is no problem with the charging system, as I have a voltmeter on the bike, which showed it was putting out at least 13+ V when running. I called...

    Hey brain trust, Same symptoms I've seen MANY times on the boards: can't idle below 1500 rpm without stalling, abrupt loss of power, left sided pops and less engine noise. I refuse to go back to the dealership and lose $500 and three weeks of summer riding. I swapped out the plugs on...

    My first Vmax, will not run.

    I figure this is a fuel issue, so I'll post here. Bought it a week ago, test ride went fine. 1990 max with 56k (should be Ca but I do not know). Owner told me that the fuel cap must be in the proper orientation or the bike will “vapor lock” and quit. Topped the fuel off, got on the...

    Bike doesn't run hot, but I do.

    I put Engine Ice in my cooling system to replace regular anti freeze coolant. Seems to have not made a bit of difference. Claim is 10 to 15 degrees cooler. Anyone have a success story about how to keep ones ass cooler?
