I'm new to the V max and their issues and quirks. I picked up a 1989 v max with 22,000 miles on the clock. It set for an unknown amount of years in a barn. The red paint was light brown when I got it home. I have replaced many O rings and hydraulic parts. Fuel has been treated and bike runs normal. However, I just got back from a ride and bike turned over very slow to restart when at running temp to put in garage. Battery shows 12.30 volts. It is hard to start suddenly when it's hot, but less than 50 % on temp gauge.Also I noticed the headlight flickers when idling. any advice appreciated.The only things different from the first 300 plus miles is, LED head light and battery tender hook up wiring.
