    brake calipers upgrade

    Has anyone used the 4 piston Harrison brake calipers for the early 85-92 V max, front and back? Just wondering the difference compared to oem stock. I'm interested in the Harrison because you can use the stock rotors and brackets. Thanks

    Rear Shock Upgrades

    Howdie All VMAXers, I did a lot of reading on this forum to see who is content with Stock Rear Shocks, and how much do you need to upgrade to get nice, nice? I tried the Progressive 412s, better, but not life changing. Then, I researched the next Progressive Model up the 440/444 AIS. I...

    Front Suspension Upgrades

    Okay, I've read a bunch of threads on what front suspension upgrades best work on the V-Max. I've seen many threads on Progressive springs and Ricor Intiminators and those who use Race Tech springs along with the Gold Valve emulators. My brother has a 2007 V-Max and is leaning towards Ricor...

  13. RV TECH

    Did a few small popular upgrades today.

    Changed the rear brake pads to the EBC HH pads. My stock pads started making noise at about 1200 miles with a whistle/howl sound. I was disappointed at first, but these new pads are already a great improvement so now I am glad they started acting up. Switched from the Yamalube engine oil to...

    Caliper upgrades

    What do you folks think is the most cost and time efficient caliper upgrade for the later years Max (2001 in my case)? Is there anything that will bolt right up without an adapter? I don't care for the underpowered front brakes, but I don't want to break the bank either.
