Hey everyone this is my first post. Im in south Florida and I just picked up an 89 Vmax that is a little rough. The bike is complete and starts right up and runs but not on all the cylinders. The odometer says 6000 miles but I seriously doubt it, although it does looks like it sat outside neglected for a while. The guy I bought it off of I'm sure just flipped it for a profit and didn't have a have any real information. I rode the bike home which felt like I was riding a 250cc and immediately began getting into it. At first look the tires are newer and the battery is brand new. The carbs definitely showed signs of having been gone through, (mismatched screws, messed up heads). The exhaust is aftermarket ( unknown which one) with one side muffler. The airbox is gone and has individual K&N pod filters. I drained the oil and it stunk of gas. I tested the coils and found that two were bad. Also the spark plug wires barely in the coils at all. I've been reading a lot of posts and decided instead of getting factory coils I would go with COPS. I have a set coming and also ordered a Ignitech from Sean Morley. I figured this would be a safe way to guarantee the ignition system was up to speed. I pulled the carbs off and so far only opened up one. Once disassembled I noticed the main jet was replaced with a 170. This carb has (2) 170 jets, (1) 90 and (1) 37.5. Seems a little big to me, but with the bike being of unknown origin just curious what everyone thinks of the jetting with the exhaust and K&N pods. Thanks guys.
