    oil weight for Vmax ?

    I have been using AMZOIL 10-40 in my 98 max. A few I have made a run to the big City,...it is 90 miles away and the highway is new & double lane with very few curves. You can really get smoking. Most traffic is zooming along at 75mph with others going faster. I have done this trip at 100 to 115...

    Front to Back weight

    I did a search and couldn't find anything, so I thought I'd post a thread instead. I do apologize if there is a thread already. I purchased a pick up the other day, a 2004 F150 FX4 with a 5.5' box, and I'd like to use it to haul my V-Max when we take our long trips. (With the wife, the dog...

    Engine weight

    does anybody know offhand what a stock complete motor weighs minus starter and vboost. I'm trying to calculate shipping and I'm afraid my fat butt and the Max's fat motor would break my wife's skinny butt scale.

    Gen 2 weight

    I am on the fence on purchasing a Gen 2 VMAX. I've watched several youtube videos of your average Joe taking them for a demo ride and listening to their reactions. Most seem to agree the power is amazing but the bike feels very heavy and is hard to turn at slow speeds. for the owners who have...

    Weight of Engine

    Weight Shaving

    I know removing the center-stand and swapping out the rear fender to one that doesn't use the metal bracket are a couple easy ways to shed some lbs, but are there some other easy ways of cutting weight (I'm not going to start eating at Subway)? I know the Carr wheels are a lot lighter, but...

    Power to Weight ratio questions.

    Given the same P:W ratio, will a light bike leave the line faster? Take a 700 pound bike/rider with 100 hp (7:1) vs a 450 pound bike/rider with 65 hp (7:1) ... which one leaves the line first? Given for the sake of argument that "power" is just that ... total power. Let's pretend the...

    Weight of parts/pieces

    It would be great if anyone knew the actual weight of some common parts and compiled them for a reference. For instance, everyone says you lose a ton of weight removing the stock exhaust. Anyone know how much it actually weighs? Stock wheels in full trim? Inner fender and tail light PER...

    Factory backrest/rack weight limit

    Hi Guys, Does anyone know the weight carrying capacity of the factory backrest/rack? I will be going on a road trip in a few weeks and I have a rather large tourmaster bag that loops over the backrest and rests on the rack. The bulk of the weight will obviously be on the rack. I'm sure I could...

    fork oil weight

    I'm going with Progressive springs and lowered 2", and I see a lot of guys use 15w oil. Is this a necessity to compensate for being lowered? I ask cause I don't want the ride to be real firm, and I weigh next to nothing, (about 155 lbs WITH gear) Should I stick with 10w? Any suggestions...
