    Shift light

    [/IMG]I just installed a Raptor shift light to my '92 and really like it. It's been said that Gen 1 1200's should have the tach and speedo locations switched around so you don't have to look down to see the RPM's.

    Nuetral Shift Improvement

    So has anyone actually gained any neutral shift improvement by performing the shift adjustment shown in the Venture Service Handbook? It says it helps to take a vise grips and bend the shifter shaft spring tab. Should I try this on the Max? I experience a tough time locating it once the engine...

    Couldn't Shift into Neutral When Hot

    So, I'm new to V-Maxes, and picked up my 02 about a month ago. I've gone on some short rides and it's been great, probably only put 100 miles on it so far though. Today, I met my wife for dinner in town, which was the longest ride I have had on it so far (20 miles each way). Everything seemed...

    Harlan shift light -SOLD-

    Harlan shift light with red LED's. $30, includes shipping in the US. Pulled it off of Archangel to use on the Beast, but the new Tach has a shift light with it. Works just fine and I've never had a problem with it. It doesn't have a bracket to go with it, sorry.

    Shift light and Infinity covers Gen 1

    I didn't get the 85 Vmax I was wanting (guy didn't really want to sell it), but, I have purchased an 2002 Vmax. I am wanting a shift light and wanting to locate some Infinity covers...(lighted tunnel appearance instead of clear). I have seen them years ago on a Max, just need some advice where...

    shift style

    my kz won't shift if there is pressure on lever before clutch is pulled. I read that a vmax needs a couple pounds of pressure, before pulling clutch ???

    Setting shift segment (bike thinks 1st is 3rd gear)

    Long story short, I made a few mistakes while putting in a new clutch (with DD mod) and upgrading the shift segment. The first mistake was I forgot to push the shift rod all the way to the left before tightening the nut on the shifter. I went for a test ride, shifted to 2nd, then shifted...

    Chinese Tach / Speedo / Shift Light $42

    What do y'all think about this? I know generally you get what you pay for. This unit has everything in a nice heads-up package, how our first gen V-Max should have been designed (in my opinion). Maybe a pain to install and set up, but it looks very practical. Even a gear indicator! Tach /...

    First time clutch job with shift segment on '98

    Clutch was slipping a little so I decided to replace disks. Ordered a Barnett Clutch Spring Conversion Kit and their friction and steel plates. Of course that was before I researched it and saw that that is not the way most folks go. Read this how to post...

    Shift Lever Ball Bearing Removal

    So I shamefully laid the bike down the other day. Only thing that got hurt was my pride, engine bars, and my shift lever. I don't have the tools to bend it back into place so I ordered another. Thought I'd start early and remove the bent one and found out it's never that easy. Lo and fucking...

    new boots too big for shift lever angle

    Hi, I just bought a new pair of boots that the toe area is too tall to accomodate getting under the shift arm to upshift. Has anyone else had this problem? If so I would like to know how you solved the issue. Can the shift lever be moved upwards? And if so would i need to adjust the linkage...
