    Wierd battery problem

    Had the weirdest problem yesterday on my 02 vmax I went to start my bike to go to work and it was about 40 degrees out and when I went to start it, it tried to turn over and then died and the click,click,click o f a dead battery followed. So I hopped in my jeep and left for work, I came home...

    Wierd carb issues.

    Left side carbs seem to run fine. Had issue of all four cabs not running as a "group". Started with a low rpm stumble, from a stop. During the "Shotgun" process, I found a bad and broken idle mixture screw in carb #3. Replaced it, syncd the carbs and it seemed fixed. Nice buttery smooth take...

    brakes-normal or wierd?

    When I changed my front pads, I loosened the reservoir cover to ease pushing calipers back in. When I tightened up the cover, I had no brakes at all(lever puller right to throttle, no pad movement). Then I loosened up the cover again and squeezed the lever and it worked fine. Tightened up the...

    wierd driveability concern

Last night on my way home which is about a 15 mile ride, I got about 14.5 miles and turned into my neighborhood and when I went to accelerate after the turn the bike had no power and started backfiring out the exhaust, I pulled over and the bike would...

    Exhaust pressure..something wierd.

    I'm still getting used to my bike (97 V-MAX). I've owned quite a few bikes and torn down (and usually put back together) quite a few as well. So I'm out fiddling with my bike. Tightening screws, etc. I started the bike and just for the hell of it I put my hands over the exhaust--Kerker...
