7 HP sounds good,but more HP always sounds good!! Weather is cold here now but I'm going to ride today anyway,cabin fever is killing me.Saturday I plunked down money on a new red and white R1 so cold or not I'm going riding.I think I'll ride by Al Gore's house and add to global warming,nothing like a good exhaust howl to make me feel all warm and fuzzy!!

HEY CHIP if you have a dyno in your area take the max down and give it a go before you do any mods . did you order the race ecu ?? that should give you the top end rush to match or surpass the B KING . and pop that air cleaner out for a pull on the DYNO

Mr MAX will be going to the dyno as soon as I get some miles on him.Weather has been terrible here in TN this year,worst winter in years,but as soon as I get 600-800 miles on MAX I be testing him.Have not ordered the race ecu because of conflicting info.If it just opens up the top end restriction not very interested,if there is more hp i'm there.Have not dynoed the B-king yet but it is a great street bike ,if Suzuki had styled it diffrently it would have sold out quick.Hope your friend gets his dyno run this week with the new ecu.

That is beautiful......I am thinking about jumping the fence myself in couple of years. I wanted something more
cruiser like but still had some handling in it. Is this thing comfortable for two up riding? i also want something
to accommodate my wife. How is the bike on gas? Sweet pipe setup.

How is the max in terms of comfort? I am 6-04 and when I sat on one it felt a bit cramped. Sitting and riding are two different things so I thought I'd ask.

Tim and Bob are both big guys .. at 275 pounds plus and they love the size of the Vmax .. I'm small and i really like the size ... to me it's like my lazy boy at home ... Some of the bigger guys knees hit the side scoops ? I could be wrong on that .. I didn't have any problem with that at 5'11" ..
