TOPIC: Proposed Speed Governor Modification

Proposed Speed Governor Modification 5 years 10 months ago #1

Ok, so the bike has a speed governor - Big Deal.

As of late Yamaha's speedos are run off the last gear in the tranny. It is to be expected that it is the same for the 2009 VMax.

The proposed solution to eliminate or extend the top speed governor is a reverse speed correction.
Get something like the Speedohealer from www.healtech-electronics.com/
wire it in through a switch to bypass it by default.
Adjust the speedo healer to correct the speed to a lower setting. e.g. make 165mph look like 125mph. Whenever you feel the need to go racing or do a high speed run, just flip the switch and go into anti governor overdrive mode. B) :woohoo:

You can do it even cheaper if you don't care for your speedo to display any speed information. Just buy the switch and disable the signal when in need. Should run you less than $2 bucks at your local radio shack...

We will find out about the one wire and its color to splice in that setup early enough. I will post the details once we get there... :evil:

Let the mod wars begin! :evil: :woohoo:

Hello "Fxstein"..
Yer modding it before yer got it...is there something wrong with the performance of the "New V-Max"
to slow may be..not enuff "Horsepower"
What happen to the 210 hp..at the crank. Now down to 197hp
I don,t ride the crank. If it,s on that mother rear tirer
We are cooking..
Back to the drawing board Yamaha..More grunt please
and on the rear wheel the part that burns the road
not the crank.
The new "Max" has the look,s but not the grunt
I feel there is some thing missing between the engine "V"
May be a pretty chrome V style cover with "Vmax" on it
like the "MT01"..or some thing better than it is "Black X"

Hope to hear from you

Re:Proposed Speed Governor Modification 5 years 9 months ago #6

Being really honest about this, if I'd known the thing had a speed governor...I'd have saved my $$. 130mph or something is it? And, yeah...I'll be right in line when someone figures how to just delete the thing totally. If it's built into the YCCI/T and can't be deleted, I'll be looking for a buyer.
What reason does Yamaha give for building a bike to be bad and then restricting it? Anyone know?
Thanks

Re:Proposed Speed Governor Modification 5 years 9 months ago #7

sorry the kiwi did that Bob:ohmy:The issues re governor limits can and will be addressed . Once we see the relationship between the fly by wire throttle , ignition system ,speed pickup etc it will just be a matter of a short time before we understand the system enough to either re map or bypass certain limitations. If this bike isn’t fast enough for you out of the box , which for 90% it should be, Fear not there are dedicated people including me that will be solving these items. Disconnecting and switching systems works on some systems and can wind up throwing faults in others. So… we will wind up with a 2009 Vmax with more hp at the rear wheel than most of us can handle.. There will be a day when some are posting . My bike is now to powerful how do I return the computer to stock.

I think everyone pays too much attention to advertised numbers. This motor will put out more HP than advertised, and the governor is the least of your worries. That will be defeated B)

You might be right - insurance rates might play a big role here.
