TOPIC: Aftermarket Exhaust & Small Gas Tank?

Aftermarket Exhaust & Small Gas Tank? 5 years 7 months ago #1

Has anyone heard of an aftermarket exhaust company looking to develop an exhaust for the new VMAX? Also, what kind of mileage range (on average) can we expect on a 4 gallon gas tank? That is my only concern about this bike. I'm used to a five gallon tank on a Triumph Sprint ST 1050 that gives me well above a 200 mile cruising range. Any input from current max owners would be appreciated. Thanks!

Get ready to change your fill up habit. The Vmax will be lucky to get you 160 miles down the road. Mine got me 100, and that's about it. I got used to filling it up regularly! B)

agreed, my 2003 max used to give me 100miles prior to the fuel light going on with maybe another twenty miles after that.

I believe that the new vmax has moved on +20 years in technology, fuel injection is much more efficient and the engine is advanced beyond recognition. Only a few road test's will tell the real story.

Don't worry about exhausts, every man and his dog will be falling over backwards to improve performance and reduce weight.

bring it on!!:woohoo:

Oh yeah, vendors are working on it. One I know is already designing an exhaust system. Another is already working on boring it out and turbo. Crazy.
