    Finally started working mine.

    So I ditched the subframe modification and gas tank swap. Going to make a fiberglass dummy tank, new seat, and a new tail.

    Vboost not working... how to troubleshoot?

    I recently rescued a 1986 Vmax from some young air force fellow who was moving overseas and more or less dumped it due to "engine problems." The "engine problems" were dirty carbs that were fixed using the shotgun approach listed in these forums (thank you very much), but I think the Vboost...

    Signals Stopped Working

    The other day I started up the bike and noticed none of the signals worked. Just the signals, all other electrics worked. I checked the bulbs and fuses, they were fine. What am I missing? And what needs replaced/fixed. I have a 98 V Max.
