    UFO Quadzilla full exhaust system -SOLD-

    I bought a 2004 VMax with just over 2000 original miles. It had this UFO system on it and I was told this is the only bike it has ever been on. I did not notice any dents or dings. I did see some minor scratches. It is a sweet sounding system but I will warn you that it is plenty loud. If loud...

    Want a full system? Read this:

    If you have a stock gen 1, but want a full 4-2 system with Stage 7 jetting, let me know. My system is currently not identified but some think it may be a Holeshot or UFO. It has 2" headers and slip ons that sound downright mean. My bike sounds amazing and has incredible power but I take long...

    Coolant reservoir not resupplying system

    Howdy, I had to flush the cooling system/radiator etc. I went to refill and noticed that the reservoir was clear full and the coolant isn't being drawn back into the system. I expected a lower system coolant level to cause a drawback of coolant but that doesn't seem to be happening. What...

    Fuel System Cleaning

    I just sent my '04s carbs off for a professional cleaning, pretty sure sitting too long with ethanol was the culprit, bike's been a paperweight for a few years now. What is the best way to clean the rest of the fuel system to ensure I'm not going to re-gunk them as soon as I bolt 'em back on?
