  • Anyone here own a Gen 1 Vmax?

    Really wanting a Gen 1 Vmax... Would love an all stock one 85-89 for vintage bike stuff.... But also found a modded 98 with hot rod parts on it (supposedly 147 hp to the tire... Stock is about 110) gonna look at this weekend. Nice thing is all Gen 1 (1985-2007) are pretty much cosmetically and mechanically identical... Very subtle small changes over the 22 year production run.

    Been researching them and asking questions on vmax forums... But wanted to see if any E on here had one and had more info/experience with them

      Well I'm pretty sure I'll get this 98 ifntitle/VIN checks out and it's as nice as owner said. I would love documentation of what was done but not complete necessary if I get it for the price I'm shooting for. Even if it has just the stage jet kit and full exhaust it will be fast enough.

      Have you done any performance mods... Clutch... What fluids did you use... Upgraded brake pads.... Etc?

      Any "must have" mods? Here are shitty pics of what I'm looking at... Owner painted a medium blue and some custom embroidery vmax on seat in blue stitching.... Not thrilled... Would rather have black/stock

ID:	112202 I've got an '85 that I bought new back in the day. As of now, it's got over 135,000 miles on the odometer. Never been apart farther than a couple stators and a clutch. Swapped the old style regulator (which was a really poor unit) for a modern Series type unit from a modern bike, now it charges 14.4 volts, and the electrical system works great. The carbs are in need of overhaul, but it's a long winter here in NY, so looks like I've got time to get it done.

            I've been searching the internet a LOT for any gen 1's within 500 miles of me... Came a cross a 2005 anniversary model all stock except super Trapp exhaust with 20k miles in good shape clear title... He needs $ and will take $2500...and found a 2006 with 10k miles bone stock perfect shape and I offered $3k and waiting for him to decide. So I've got 3nto look at/choose from.... These are a lot of bike for not a lot of $ if you do your research and shoot low on price!
