    Trying to fix my speedo, and of course the wire key is broken in the end of the driveshaft. Had to get the drill out and work it carefully, but I'm not sure if I got it all. I can stick a drill bit in about a half inch into the end of the driveshaft before it hits something solid. It's still on...

    I blew a ski by hitting a rock going 120 in a field. I no longer have a left front ski and the right has some pretty gaping holes in it. I've been searching the web a bit lately but can't seem to find any skis/carbides/runners for that sled or any that say that they will fit that sled. I don't...

    it ran great last year except we had to disconnect the tors system halfway thru the season. this year when i go to start it it starts kindas and then dies after about 2 or 3 seconds. after dumping gas down the cylinders, it will idle for about 5 or 6 seconds then it'll die and wont start without...

    My VIN is 8CG-000752. The sled is a 2 up with electric start and reverse. I thought the LE was the electric start version but mine appears to be a DX? I’m trying to figure out which track I need but I can’t get a definitive on which model my sled is? Need some help from you savvy Vmax guys...

    Been riding my 95 vmax recently and it’s been running great. Got done riding today and I realized my front left shock is completely compressed while my right is at it’s normal position. Is there any way this can be fixed or is a whole new shock the route I need to take?

    I have a '99 Vmax 500 deluxe that I'm kind of bored with. I want it to be more capable, but without spending $800+ on a 121 to 136 extension. What popped this idea into my head was when I got an offer for a venture, same year, but obviously with the 136. Originally I planned on using it on my...

    A buddy of mine has the same 1999 Vmax 600 twin that I do, but his will lift the front end a foot or so off the ground when he dumps the throttle, but mine won't. We have the same 1 1/4 inch track, but mine is studded, so shouldn't it be easier for my sled? In a straight drag race the sleds are...

    About to replace my head gasket in the 95 vmax. While taking the head off i obviously lost a lot of coolant. When I get the new gasket and put it back together how should I go about adding coolant back in? How do you do this without creating airbubbles in the system?

    I have a 1999 Vmax 600 twin. It starts every time 1-2 pulls and runs great. It'll rip like a brand new sled for the first 30 minutes of riding. After that, I notice some power loss, maybe 10-15% less. Around 10-20 minutes later, it won't rev about 6k, and takes up to 20-30 seconds just to get to...

    My ‘95 vmax is burning all of my coolant up pretty quickly. Would this be remedied with a new head gasket? What could I do to stop the coolant leak into cylinders

    Just bought a 95 vmax 600 (my first sled). The idle after giving it throttle is very high. Is this too much of a lean mixture problem? How could I solve this issue?

    Just bought my first sled yesterday, it’s a 95 vmax 600 double. It’s got 3000 miles on it. How are the oil injection systems on them? Should I pre mix it or not?

    I recently picked up a 95 VMAX 500. When I got it the taillight worked but dash/headlights did not. I bought a replacement regulator and put it in, now the taillights won’t work either. Put the old one back in, still nothing. the harness into the regulator isn’t going in all the way so it...

    hey guys, I'm new here. I have 2 1990 indy 500's with full skid/track/front suspension. they don't work. I have a fully functional 1994 Vmax 500 dx. I'm starting to try to value the smaller things in life like personal comfort over high speed. I am trying to swap the front suspension...

    What's up guys? I'm new to the page. I'm looking to add an ice fishing sled to my collection that still has some speed and would make a good backup or loaner sled for buddies to use when we go out on the trails. I'm looking at 2 different sleds and would like your opinions on both. First, there...
