the clicking u hear is the fuel pump and the vboost cycling when u turn the

Hi,

I was reading the V-Max owners manual and it says you can hear the V-boost
when you turn on the key to verify it is workingis that true?  Also can
anyone tell me how you know for sure the V-boost is working...

The best indication of a working vboost can be felt in your shoulders and
the seat of your pants when you nail the throttle and the rpm sweep past
~6000 rpm.

When I got my Vmax, it had that wonderful rush at 6k.  Then, when I had the
carbs off, I noticed a lot of slack in the cable, so I tightened it
properly.  After that, it had a much-more wonderful rush at 6k:) 

I'm not sure how often the cable requires adjustment, but it made a very
nice difference on my bike.

as the other guys said--- the v.boost should be audable when you turn on the ignition/kill switch, and you should notice how slipprey the seet becomes at 6000rpm...
 UNLESS,,, your max is a UK model registered beetween 91 and 96 thease bikes are ristricted to 100 horse power and dont have v.boost fitted.
if your in the UK this maybe your problemb, if not go back to the manual and checkout the section about adjustment of the v.boost.

When I turn the key on the Vboost opens but will not close . It
stays
open no matter what . If I manually apply power it will open 
close .
The pot. test in the book is a little confusing . I do continuity

through 1-2  2-3 can't figure out where is no. 4 . Supposed to
be a
test of 1-4 . Any thoughts ?
Eric H.

eric,
it sounds to me, like you are not getting enough juice to the
v-boost
system.  The reason I say this is from playing with the variable
v-boost
gadget.  In an attempt to slow down the servo action, i put a
resistor in parrallel
with the servo motor. this did what i wanted, and that was to
split the 12volts
between the resistor and the servo motor which split the speed of
the servo going
from full closed to full open in just a couple seconds.  Now when
i put TOO MUCH
resistor across the motor, it took most of the power away from
the servo motor
AND THE MOTOR  JUST SAT THERE AND TWITCHED...

The whole point here is to meter your voltage going to the
v-boost, if you have a
slightly bad connection, 'too much resistance'  then you will
have a servo motor
that will be working eratically, either not doing its full
initialization or just twitching
half way thru the routine which is what i experienced.

now, as for the measurement instructions in the book, assuming
page 7-66...
I STRONGLY SUSPECT THAT  1-4 IS A TYPO AND SHOULD BE 1-3,
infact, i would bet on it..   WARNING: this typo may cause you or
anyone to
merge the 2 pictures together and connect your ohmmeter to the
battery which
is labeled as "4" in the first picture.  YOU CAN DAMAGE YOUR
OHMMETER
IF YOU CONNECT IT TO POWER.  o.k.  yak yak yak.

what the little box means with the measurements is that your
total resistance should be between
5.25k--9.75k (7.5k +-30%) when measured between 1-3(typo of 4).
AND the values you get
when meauring between 1-2 and 2-3 added together should be equal
to the measurement of 1-3.

now after all of this, I can tell you that i 'think' your
potientometer is fine. the POT tells the control box
where the servo motor is in its travel. You said that when you
connect alternate power to the v-boost,
it performs correctly, this means that the potentiometer is
telling the control box the correct position of
the servo.  Based on my 2c's worth, I hope that your power loss
is in your connectors and not in the
control box.

Re: V boost

2000-07-13 Thread Rick52

I took my max out last week to check the running with the supertrapps and 
full time vboost.   At 105mph the bike ran very smooth,  at 115 there was a 
little wobble, and at 125 the wobble was SCARY.  I went back to my dealer and 
shared my great concern!  The dealer rep had me air my front and back tires 
to 40 psi.  I took the bike back out to run today with rechecked tire psi at 
40.  What a difference.  My bike had no wobble or even a hint of a wobble at 
125 mph.  I ran out of decent road space and did not push it any more.  I am 
amazed at what difference the higher tire pressure made.  When I find a more 
suitable road I am going to try it up to 135 I think.  My max is a 2000 with 
about 1200 miles on it.  

Just a note,

Re: v-boost

2000-07-11 Thread TC

Kraig,
It appears that everything else being equal that the open Vboost does
cause a richer mixture on the low end than a normal Vboost. However,
this is not necessarily a bad thing. I think some of the stage 7 guys
might have had to put the bigger PAJ2 in to lean it out a little but
to some it may be a welcome and needed, (I am sure this is the case
for the people that have reported that this has worked well for them).
Of course if you did this and you thought it made the bike too rich ..
then you could simply jet around it like the stage 7 guys and put a
little bigger pilot air jet in there.

 much difference one way or the other.
 
 To do it, remove the left scoop.  You'll find a round connector (the only
 round one in there).  Unplug it and then lightly plug it back together.
 Turn the key on while watching the vboost mechanism cycle (down under the
 carbs).  Unplug the round plug when the vboost is wide open.  It may take
 you a couple of tries to get it just right.  The servo pauses for about a
 half a second when it's fully open.  It helps if you have someone else turn
 the key on for you so you can concentrate on watching the mechanism, etc.
 
 It's a quick, easy thing to do.  If you don't like it, just plug it back in.
 One note, you will have to adjust the idle speed (left side between the
 carbs).  Just remember to plug it back in before synching the carbs.

I have to agree with Vern at least in the "feeling" department.  I have
Dale's switch and did dyno runs both with v-boost open and with it stock.
It actually pulls alittle more hp's down low in the stock configuration.
Anytime I am just crusing and want to pass or get on it I always thumb the
switch,  It just feels better to me.  Also especially with the Tourmaster
motor, when the wife is onboard I like to have the switch on when I am going
to be getting a handfull of throttle from a stop.  The power is smoother,
without it when the boost hits it is just alittle unpredicatble for me. (no
backrest either).

With the "Trapps" the best thing is to add a #4 brass washer under your

To do it, remove the left scoop.  You'll find a round connector (the only
round one in there).  Unplug it and then lightly plug it back together.
Turn the key on while watching the vboost mechanism cycle (down under the
carbs).  Unplug the round plug when the vboost is wide open.  It may take
you a couple of tries to get it just right.  The servo pauses for about a
half a second when it's fully open.  It helps if you have someone else turn
the key on for you so you can concentrate on watching the mechanism, etc.

It's a quick, easy thing to do.  If you don't like it, just plug it back in.
One note, you will have to adjust the idle speed (left side between the
carbs).  Just remember to plug it back in before synching the carbs.

Less low end power, it serves no purpose, unless you have a Dynojet Stage 7 or similar.

C'mon Mario of course you belong here and you know it.. I agreed with your statements 
regarding the mag, even though I am not a VMOA member, since I believe everyone has to 
do their duty and for  the unlucky ones who cannot connect to the net it is the only 
source of information they've got.

Still you have the needed Latin blood that all appreciate, so keep-up the good work 
and don't talk nonsense.

PS. Even though I am British (born in Spain), I do not like the Cybermax fairing, even 
if it fitted like a glove and same way I do not like the boxes for the Max, so what!

By the way, TC, be sure to talk with TBR about the difference in the C2, C4,

comes in C2.

My Sentiments Exactly Mario, I don't think you should get Flamed about

 I attended the Car Show on Brunswick today, and had the pleasure to meet
 with a few V-Max owners, unfortunately most of them were quite
 disappointed due to the delay of our V-Boost magazine, 4 of them are
 thinking about canceling their VMOA membership, (something we cannot
 afford or allow to happen!!)
 These members don't have access to the Lists on the Internet, so their
 only means to get updates, tips and product evaluations, come from our
 magazine.
 I imagine there are hundreds of members out there, who are on the same
 situation, and probably thinking about leaving the VMOA as well.
 Now, I don't know what the situation is, and to tell you the truth, I
 don't care!!!, when Clint, Don and I started this Association, we
 promised a quarterly magazine delivered ON TIME to each member of our
 beloved VMOA, well.. IT ISN'T HAPPENING ANYMORE!
 Excuses like, "I don't have enough material", "nobody sends pictures" or
 "I have no articles to print" don't fool nobody anymore, you can get
 enough material and pictures from the Lists, or from the Tech Archives
 if necessary, to get the mag going, but NEVER!! let it go this late.
 I know the editing and printing process is a pain in the ass, and I wish
 I could have more time, so I would do it myself. BUT, if somebody
 volunteers to do the job, PLEASE!!! don't make 1500 members pay for your
 lack of responsibility.
 I don't know if those 4 guys I talked to, are going to quit the VMOA or
 not, I hope I did convince them to hold on a little longer, but I'm
 concerned for those out there, that already made up their minds, and is
 already too late, to get them back..

 I expect a lot of flames, stones and cursing coming my way, but this is
 the way I feel about this situation.

re v-boost

2000-05-26 Thread Ross Lowery

the v-boost is very noticable on my 97 especially at quarter to part
throttle. Just hold the throttle steady and when the tach hits about 6500 it
just starts to rip. Things happen so fast @  wide open ,sometimes  I don't
notice the v-boost. I'm to busy keep'n it straight,on the ground, and
hitting all the gears :'), Ross

Re: V-boost wiring harness on a non V-boost European 99 Max Again.

2000-04-04 Thread TC

Charles,
Remember ... I slid the gray connector out of my connector, (releases
with a toothpick), and I still got the open, close and short
adjustment movements ... so connecting the gray to the yellow, (RPM
monitor), should not be an issue for "key on" initialization. (bad
rheostat .. bad rheostat ... $5 on bad rheostat .. ;)

Again.


 snip 
 So if I connect the brown cable on the three spade connector
 from the control box to a 12 V DC source (a battery I have at home)
 and the black to the negative of that same battery I should be
 able to produce the same effect as if the whole thing was wired
 on the bike..
 Well it does the first "BZZZ" but not the second and the butterflies
 stay put at 3/4 of totally open. Am I missing something? Maybe
 the remaining grey line connecting to the yellow from the rev
 counter signal should also be wired, but I don't want to cut the
 bike's harness open till I know that the system I purchased
 second hand is working properly.
