    Where does the white oil level sensor wire go?

    Hi I have rebuilt a Vmax from 1986 and everything works great now, except the start switch won't work. All of the electrical are connected where it belongs except for the white oil level wire, I can't figure out where it's supposed to go. And I can't find my Haynes book either, so any...

    Does the Gen 2 have a headlight sensor

    Does the Gen 2 have a headlight relay When I started it up yesterday I noticed that the small light above the headlight was on buy the headlight wasn't. I believe all motorcycles have the headlights always on for safety, I must have a burnt out lightbulb. I hope it isn't something in the wiring.

    O2 Sensor

    I was wondering why there is a heated O2 sensor in the crossover section of my stock 06 Max pipe. There seems to be no where to plug it in.:ummm:

    Temperature sensor.

    Godzilla's temp gauge is acting up. It only moves a tiny bit until the motor gets hot, then jumps up to what I think is the correct reading. As soon as I get the bike moving to cool it off just a bit, it drops back to cold. I pulled the single wire coming out of the sensor, and grounded it. The...

    Temperature sensor / sending unit

    Hi, I'm having some issue with my sending unit. Tested the gauge by grounding it to the copper base of the sensor and it maxed out. So i know It's the sensor. Can anyone recommend a replacement unit or maybe tell me what the threads are called? Cheers!

    Reserve sensor not working

    a couple of days ago I forgot to keep track of my miles and ran out of gas. That's when I realized the reserve never kicked in. I had the switch in the right place and the sensor worked a couple of weeks back. I couple of weeks back I had to fix a burnt connector in my ignition switch, could...

    supertrapp sensor mount

    I have a set of supertrapp slip on mufflers to fit to a 96 max. One of them appears to have a boss for a sensor in the part of the pipe that slips on. Is there a slot on the oe pipe to take this? Asking this before I take the oe pipes off as they are a pain to get back on lol. Thanks for your help

    speed sensor

    Ok, need to pick a few peoples minds. The speedometer has a speed sensor in it that tells the turn signal relay a distance traveled so it cancels the turn signals. What kind of signal is it sending. A low voltage pulse? I put one of the cheapy Chinese speedometers on my vmax and now the turn...

    Fuel reserve sensor

    Can the fuel reserve sensor in the tank get loose or out of placement? Reason I ask is that last time the reserve kicked in (or rather bike started to die), I switched to reserve and stopped for gas. But only able to pump in 7-8 liters. Meaning the tank was still half full. Reserve should kick...

    1998 yamaha vmax Throttle Position Sensor

    I bought my 98 vmax 10 days ago and have put 250 miles on it and she ran good. Today when I took the bike for a ride when I came to an intersection the idle would go up to 3000 rpm's. If I would rev it a couple times it might come down a little. Any ideas what would make it do this. Was...

    Fuel Gauge Sensor Mount/ Sealing

    I have a fuel gauge sensor installed into my 5 gal tank and one of the screws that hold it down is stripped. It is screwed through top of the tank which is not very thick. Should I install nutserts (for all the screws) or will that cause a gap? I could make up a thick gasket to help seal that...

    Weld in O2 sensor bung location

    Can and O2 sensor be welded in near the end of an exhaust system or does it have to be right on a primary near the engine where it is hottest? I've always had the impression that O2 sensor need to be very hot to operate correctly but my exhaust is ceramic coated. The "muffler" at the end isn't...

    How to test fuel tank sensor

    I pulled the sensor out of my rust fuel tank this afternoon. The sensor sure looks like it has seen better days. Is there a way to test it out before reinstalling it? I don't want to put it in if it don't work obviously. If I do reinstall it and it doesn't work, can I jump t out somehow...

    O2/lambda sensor position

    Hi all Im considering installing an A/F monitor with a O2/lambda sensor on one of my bikes. This is for easier tuning of the flatslides i want to install on a different configuration rather than PCW or VGas. My question is where is the best position to place the sensor in order to get the best...

    Temperature gauge sensor?

    Anyone know what the thread size is on the temp gauge sensor? I am guessing its M10 x 1.0. I need to figure out a way to install a M6 sensor in place of the original M10 sensor. I was looking for adaptors that go from M10 x 1.0 to M6 x 1.0 but don't see them anywhere. My next idea would...
