    Won't start after sitting for the winter

    Hmm, where do I start. This is my first spring with a Vmax. It doesn't even appear to want to start. I got it to hit a time or two and one backfire, but nothing after that. I didn't put any stabilizer in, just filled the tank with premium before putting it up for the winter. I tried...

    Winter Riding

    Rode my V-Max to work this morning (again). Clear weather, good roads. Just very cold at 19 degrees F. The guys at work think I'm crazy... maybe I am. I just really enjoy riding the V-Max. I always reply, "No rain, no snow, no ice... I'm riding." Just some quick tips: 1. Be careful...

    Winter Projects?

    Ok, so I'm there with all of you who are sadly putting your VMaxes to bed for the winter. We all see the cold coming, and have heavy hearts about the many months that we must now wait until we can ride again. And yes, those of us stuck in the Northern parts of the country are completely...

    Winter Riding Questions

I keep it in the garage, have changed all the fluids, add...

    Winter plans..

    So, for a lot of us, the season's over.. Bikes stored, how's the time to think about winter projects. I'd like to get steering head bearings changed, and maybe a set of Delkevic slipons installed, money permitting... I have no plans to do anything to the Roadstar over winter. Adding the...

    Weird Carb Noise

    Hi, I noticed when I start my bike there is a spritzing noise coming from what appears to be the right-rear carb, just below the round metal disk. It became less evident as the bike warmed up but it still happened periodically, especially as I bumped the throttle. It sounds like someone is in...

    Took advantage of some rare warm winter riding today

    And I ran into this guy! My dad and I met up with Traumahawk earlier today and spent the afternoon riding around one of the local state parks and wildlife refuges. We had a pretty good time and I definitely enjoyed riding with another Max. Eric has a pretty mean bike!
