It was also the original up-grade option. It and the XV Venturer were the two that were actually a plug-n-play with no mount hole having to be elonggated.

Ah! Dirty hands. A kitchen sink full of bits. Pans (of parts) gently simmering on the stove. The sounds of the BBC World Service in the early hours. Just like old times!

V Max adjuster

I've only just fitted a V.Max adjuster myself this week. Can't wait to test it, my carbs are apart on the kitchen table at the moment but will be cleaned and refitted this afternoon.
Just make note of the fact that you will need to extend one of the adjuster mounting holes a fraction in order to fit the new adjuster.
