Ok, well this is my 7th Vmax. I honestly don't know what I am going to do with this one. One thought is to give it to my son after I do a mild build on it. Another is to build this one different than I have my other 6.
I am thinking bright and colorful on this build and the factory paint is good for that.
I am thinking clear covers, and as I sit here typing this I have a waterpump cover in my hand and about 2 hours of free time tonight.... LOL
I am not sure about the clutch cover.... I have a Michigan Vmax Hooligan, the last insert I machined and last one I will machine , left and I was thinking of installing that on the bike possibly.
I am not 100% sure if I am doing to do the double d clutch mod or not. I am debating on whether this bike will ever see any track use. I might make a few runs just for old time sake. But there really isn't much sense. It'll run high 10's low 11's like all the rest did. So I am thinking strictly a street machine most likely.
I believe I will either try my hand at chroming another set of Vmax scoops, or I might powder coat them. I said I would never plate Vmax Scoops again LOL, as its a pain with my plating setup currently.
The front wheel.... I have something in mind for that also
I am debating, I ve never done USD front ends on any of my Vmax's and maybe its time.... If I do that, there is really no sense in machining the stock front wheel. But maybe I ll machine the wheel so I have something different until I have the decision down for USD or not.
I think I might machine a set of case guards. Most likely if I do, I will just use the current design ones and copy them for the sake of ease ability.
Handle bars, I am not sure if I am going to go with drag bars again, and of course if I do USD I ll go with clip ons.
Exhaust, I believe I might go with Voodoo exhaust 4-2 or UFO 4-2 megaphone style this time. Though I might go back to marks if I can get a better deal this time on the exhaust. The last one set I had the quality just wasn't there really. But I really liked the sound.
Carbs.... I ll just run them as is for now. Stage 7 setups never really impressed me that much more, but we'll see.
Maybe I ll do radials on the bike this time... Not sure.
I am kind of undecided what I want to do and where I am heading with this one. So right now as it sits.... next to my 14.
I dont think I ll do much distance riding on this bike, since Vmax's aren't the most touring setup bike. My 14 will probably maintain its primary role and the Vmax will be for screwing around town with my girl and stuff like that.
