    The Vmax is often compared with various categories of bikes.... (Muscle bike, Cruisers, Naked Bikes, Sports Tourer)

    am considering a max as my next ride and have gone through the svog site as intial research.

    aside from the slightly dated technology,most machines in singapore are around 10 years old now i suppose, some problems that i think the bike may have are:-

    crappy braking (due to its weight and older 2/4pot calipers)
    slipping clutches (due to its power)
    over heating (our weather)
    overly soft suspension and dated tyre technology for malaysian roads (not the highway but the twisty trunk roads)
    maintainence (mechs who know how to fis the machine) and parts back up

    in the event i get one, it will be used for touring duties and not just for pottering around s'pore. i know there is a huge following overseas where cruisers are real big and the roads are extremely straight but for our purposes, hot weather, twisty trunk roads and i suppose the lack of local support from the dealership, i would like to get some idea of how the machine performs from riders.

    as i said the couple of points above are what i think you guys may face as problems, are my concerns true and are there any other issues with the bikes that i should be aware of, like worn shaft drives, bearings, etc?

    cheers

    Let me try to answer some of your doubts to the best of my ability.....

    crappy braking (due to its weight and older 2/4pot calipers)
    Not as good as the sportsbike brakes but adequate if you have the 4 pot calipers of 93' bikes and above. The trick is to use a good pads and steel braided hoses. You can also drop in R1 calipers for the ultimate result.

    slipping clutches (due to its power)
    Not an issue unless you are tempted to drag race at every stop light.....

    over heating (our weather)
    The engine runs hot but if your fan switch is working well, it should not overheat.
    Waterwetter and a simple Fan override switch will be able to overcome this...


    overly soft suspension and dated tyre technology for malaysian roads (not the highway but the twisty trunk roads)
    Stock dampers are weak and the tyres are not sticky but unless you are scraping pegs an twisties.......

    maintainence (mechs who know how to fis the machine) and parts back up
    As the technology is old, most mechanic can fix the Vmax. There are a also a few mechs who specialize on Vmax and you can always go back to Hong Leong as a last resort. Parts can be ordered from Yamaha Parts dealers like Autocycle or Automachinery


    The cruiser chassis is also weak and can be strengthen up by frame braces and solid engine mount.

    At the end, you have to ask yourself if you are willing to spend some money to do up and customise the max to your liking.

    The only things that you should worry about getting a Vmax is shortening your lifespan, getting too much attention on the road, too much power for your arms to handle & having a kick ass attitude look when riding your Vmax.. & wondering why the other motorists at the traffic light juctions are always so slow in moving off & you keep wondering if the lights had actually turned green...

    GET ONE........

    Congrats man. How many time did you Vboost on PIE?

    BTW, what's wrong with the CDI?

    You can call autocycle 62912515 or automachinery 62929452 to enquire.

    Yes... better be careful when having pillion w/o back rest. Pillion can fall off if she's not holding tight when Vboost kicks in.

    Looking at your signature, your last bike was a shadow. You'll probably need to change your riding behaviour as the V4 engine loves to be revved like a sportsbike. Fun starts after 6000rpm.

    WARNING: AND if the person who pillion you is 'heavy' & is holding tight to you, your Vmax will leave you behind literally if you full throttle!!

    Congrats to your purchase of a Vmax & welcome to the Vmax community....

    I guess you are referring to the Vboost?? From what I know, only the Vmax has it.. The boost kicks in at 6k rpms & all the 1200cc of raw power + boost is transferred to the rear wheel.. And the riding position on the Vmax really make you have to hang on to the handles which creates the 'going to fly' feel.. I would not say it's the fastest bike around but sure it's the most fun to ride in... But i must say the Vmax is a very dangerous bike if not taken seriously if not treated with respect because of the 'not up to date' handling.. If you ask around, most of the vmax owners have owned one or more before.. After trying other bikes they still miss the charateristics of the VMAX.. I am riding my 3rd Vmax...

    the kick about riding the max is for the vboost to kick in at 6000rpm. the kick in is very sudden, unlike vtec and ex-up where you dont really feel the increase in power. Once the vboost kick in, the thrill is to hold on to dear life and try to take control of the bike again...now that what riding a vmax is all about

    ...your last bike was a shadow. You'll probably need to change your riding behaviour as the V4 engine loves to be revved like a sportsbike
    You right man, was changing gear-up too fast.. Now I got much better taste. When no pillion ofcourse!

    WARNING: AND if the person who pillion you is 'heavy' & is holding tight to you, your Vmax will leave you behind literally if you full throttle!!

    Congrats to your purchase of a Vmax & welcome to the Vmax community....
    He he, my pillion is not 'too' heavy. But without back-rest its tiring for both of us to hold on...
    And thanks for yr welcome!

    Tried around 6k rpm (pls dont ask where and what the speed !!&#33 Its qute fun, but found some thing to look at:
    - front fork feel not stable when try swinging in that speed.
    - clicking (knocking) noise when engine braking...
    - front brake not really smooth
    Any similar expirience?
    Another task to do for next week to optimise this vmax.

    Check your front fork preload air pressure if they are balance on left and right.

    - clicking (knocking) noise when engine braking...

    Could be drive shaft free play
    did you change the shaft oil lately?


    - front brake not really smooth

    Check brake disk for warpage or check if brake pads are worn.


    Are there any mods or is the max bone stock?

    - Front fork: will check it soon (still have no time)
    - Clicking sound: its actually come from the engine, like valve, or probably spark timing?

    The Destroyer is Harley-Davidson’s first out-of-the-box drag racing bike and it’s not intended for road use. A heavily modified version of the popular V-Rod, the Destroyer was built by specialist manufacturer Custom Vehicle Operations, and it demolishes the quarter mile sprint in just over 10 seconds.

    Anyone interested to check out the Vrod Dragster at NTU tomorrow? Planning to go after lunch tomorrow.

    No doubts for VMax that had reaches its "Nirvana" way before we could ever thought but one thing that I don't understand is that why don't they incooperate with something overcome its weaknesses.
    Namely like; inverted forks, mono rear shock and radial brake masterpump. Rest can see they are pretty selective and good metal finishing.

    Some say this time is gonna be 2L engine. IMO ... is way overkilled ! This is not simply a V-Twin push rod ... is a V4. Whatever it is ... is gonna be crazy !
    I think they might want to give new buyers some chance to do some customisation that Vmax owners are so used to.
