    Crankshaft internal thread stripped

    Cfb game thread

    I thought I would start a post for any and all college football fans. If it proves to be a active maybe we could get it to sticky status! So, let's hear from all those college football fans of the: FBS Conference Div 1-A ACC, Big 12, BIG 10, Conference USA, Independents, Mid-American...

    Windshield (yes, another thread but with a twist)

    Good morning / evening / afternoon... I'm looking for a windshield for my 99 max, for longer rides. I spent a fair amount of time whittling down my options and trying to find the right balance between one that offers enough protection (full body + head...not just chest) and one that doesn't...

    Movie/TV Show Thread

    My daughter was pretty sick this Labor Day weekend and unfortunately plans to enjoy the weather and the motorcycle were cancelled. So I did some catching up on shows. I thought why not get some recommendations from folks here on shows that might not be on my radar but are really good. If you...

    fuel needle thread pitch?

    I tried but could not find reference to the fuel/air needle adjustment screw thread pitch. I have come up with a size to (to the best of my ability) but I was hoping someone else here has found out by experience for sure what the thread pitch is. My plan is to chase the threads in the carbs I...

    Official VMAX Owners Recipe & Cooking Thread

    When I first joined here I told y'all that I was going to have some questions, mostly stupid ones :biglaugh: I also said that I know a thing or two about cooking. Barbecue/BBQ/Bar-B-Q or whatever you want to call it, in particular. After chatting with CaptainKyle a bit, I found out that he...

    Another rear-radial noob thread

    Greetings mentors, I've been lurking the forums a lot, finally starting to figure some basic stuff out, and I keep running into 1) praise of radial tires 2) the reality that radials don't fit on a 15" wheel, and 3) various questionably-still-viable ways to get a 17" or 18" rear wheel. As of...

    Need white plastic thread in needle retainers

    I had a friend misplace the threaded plugs and little springs that hold the needles in the slide. Not sure what happened. Think carbs were apart for a while. I sent him the ones out of my spare diaphragm assemblies. So now I need 4 springs and 4 screw plugs. I can get them I think in a needle...

    Another no spark after replacing starter clutch thread

    Greetings fellow Maxxers. I decided to start a new thread on this age old problem. I have a 2000 vmax that for the past month has vexed me starting with the carbs acting up and having issues starting and idle. I did the peashooter and cleaned the hell out of it and it did start and...

    Darkside thread

    Hello all, I have looked at several youtube videos and have done some reading on going to the darkside - and am curious about people's experience in doing this. Going "Darkside" means mounting a car tire on the back of a bike. I realize that this is a polarizing topic, but have yet to...

    Thread Closed??????????? Why

    It's difficult to figure out who moderates the threads anywhere here, so I'm making this an open request for reply. I posted a thread in the Burn Out Pit which is supposed to be an anything goes area for forum supporters. Title: Another One Bites The Dust. It was read by 42 and replied to by...

    Thread disappeared

    I had a thread in the Vboost Room concerning a starting issue I was having, and some discussion had gone on on the most likely culpurate, and the solution to the issue. The thread appears to be simply GONE, as in not moved or anything, just deleted. I wish to know what happened to it...

    How hot does the engine oil in vmax run?

    Hi, I'm wondering how hot the engine oil in vmax runs because i recently stripped a thread for a screw that is holding the oil pump while doing the HD oiler kit. The thread was only half stripped so i applied loctite to it. On loctite's webpage it states that a 5Nm torque gives about 24Nm...
