Hey y'all! New here. Also very new owner of a 94 Vmax which I was told was in better shape than it really is. Just got done with front valve cover gasket a coolant leak fix, and wiring OEM turn signals.Next day I did went ahead with a 15 minute warm up to idle test on its own. After reaching temp horrible high pitched screaming noise came from the front right. Jumped to kill switch as fast as possible. Any ideas?

You said the former owner mis-represented its condition, perhaps he found something in his work on it, he buttoned it back-up, and found a gullible, new owner. Sorry. I think the only way that you might be able to solve this is with a disassembly/inspection. That's not what you want to hear, "I have to tear-down my new/used purchase," but it may be the only way that you fix it properly.

You could try turning it over with a wrench on the crankshaft bolt to see if you can replicate the point at-which the rub occurs, but I don't think you'll be able to pinpoint the source. A recent poster showed a broken piston pin, I suppose something like that could make a horrible high-pitched noise as it gouged-against the cyl wall, that, or a spit-out wristpin retaining ring.

You need to post this into a new thread under the forum sub heading of Technical Forum-Motor. There isn't enough typing room here to discuss this.

Google my name Scott Cantermen I am mentioned by two members. I sold PatMax parts as agreed, Woody I’ve never dealt with, I live in NJ not Montana. There are threats to my person on your forum . I am contacting you to correct this matter. Your forum is suppose to monitor for false content unless you feel the need communicate terroristic threats , and libel statements.
Bought my first vmax. 1988. Got new clutch plates installed. Tuning carbs. Should be riding soon!!
I'm sure I'm late to the party but do you still have those Gen 2 bags for sale ?

Sorry my friend, I sold them. I do have a set that are in need of repair I would let go for $200 USD. The zippers need repairing and there is a tear in the fabric. In my area, there is nobody who repairs them.
