    Vmax (2nd gen)

    I built this bike two years ago, the beast is stock at 197hp and mine is about 210hp at the tire. After building it i took it to the local annual spring bike show and it took 1st place, i think the judges were tired of all the cookie cutter Harley customs. I am at the drag strip all the time with my drag car but i took the day off and put the car in the trailer and tried my hand at running it down the track. 4th pass with my fat butt on it was 9.98 et on street tires.

    wow that thing looks like a handful.

    Didn't even know they made a new Vmaxx. Pretty cool, a lot of people loved the original ones.

    That's some serious horsepower. Are you saying that stock out of the box it's 197hp?

    Nice looking bike.

    I had a buddy right out of high school build a bike and started going to the drag strip on Friday nights for or local test and tune session. He was on the edge of breaking into the 9s. He could have accomplished it with no problems, but the track had all sorts of additional safety requirements for the rider and the bike itself once you got below 10s on a bike. One night he was pulled over heading home from the track. There was a slight chase that involved the officer that clocked him at 156 calling ahead and having the exits lined with cops, haha. Before that he had been pulled over for wheelies. After a "free vaction" provided by the county, he decided he was best suited for 4 wheels.

    Yep box stock from Yamaha out of the box is 197hp and 166tq (crankshaft). Mine is 209 at the tire on a dyno jet dyno with just bolt on's and custom ecu tuning.

    Not sure if you seen this link on my new guy thread but here is a good vid. I was doing some initial testing with a slightly different set up with the blower turned down to 9lbs for a cold slick track.

    Yhea it is a beast, production on the 2nd generation bikes began in 2009 and the only thing that has been changed thru 2014 has been a different color each model year. It is not for an inexperienced rider by any means, i spent almost 20 years in the motorcycle industry before changing careers, you have to ride it with respect but it leaves grin on your face after every ride.

    I feel the same way when I ride the Vrod in the mountains. It's such a powerful machine when you get the engine over 5krpm. I like to ride 'briskly' thru the mountains. Yellow lines are more a caution than a hard and fast rule.
