    Removed fork cover on top, found some oil

    I removed the cap on top to check air pressure and noticed about 6-8 drops of oil pooled at bottom. 2006 V max. Anything to worry about? IF so, suggested repair. Have not changed fork oil since I owned bike (5 yrs). Is there a good thread (video for dummies would be nice) for doing this...

    97 vmax top cover / faux gas tank correct emblem size ??

    Top End Rebuild Question

    After numerous attempts to get the carbs clean so my 1989 would run without the choke, I finally did a compression check. The compression ranged from 60 to 120. I guess it wasn't the carbs after all. Now the engine is out and the rear head is off. Every exhaust valve so far has a couple of...

    Rear top shock Mount

    Does anyone know how deep the top rear shock mount is? I guess because my rear setup was widened the actual mounting point cracked. I guess I'll get it welded but was curious how far the threads go into the frame or is it just the tit that sticks out? Anyone's advice is appreciated. Thanks

    Vintage Top Speed Test Video

    Cool video. If you jump to around 16:00 you get the riders view. Takes some balls to ride those speeds on a banked track near that killer guard rail......on those bikes. :worthy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HCxMf-Z5AJQ

    Givi top case

    Anyone with a Givi top case on their Vmax? I read that nobody makes mounting brackets, but I'm thinking if I'm willing to sacrifice the rear seat it shouldn't be too hard to fab something up to work?
