    Not really a Tip as such but I noticed straight away when you activate the device (press the fire button) you get a Red Display and Blue light on the switch !! Looks very cool especially in the dark ;o)

    Curious as to whether you got the new version. Does yours default to 3v or 5v when changing batteries?

    Save your money for a BMW K1600 instead. Trust me, I've ridden both. Nothing on the planet sounds like that Beemer's 6cyl motor when it approaches redline. It wheelies off idle. Not that I condone such childish activities
    I currently ride a Honda VFR800.

    I can go higher but max out around the 4.2 - 4.4 range. This is when I personally find that the vapor production actually decreases and you start getting a hint of the carto burning (slightly rough/harsh TH and smell of something burning upon exhalation).

    I almost sold the unit thinking that something is wrong with it because I was getting these harsh TH at 4.8V - 5.0V which was what I used to vape at with the LT. But going against everything that I was used to on the LT, I dialed it back down to aroung 3.6 - 3.8 and it was spot on.

    So yeah, best advice for new owners, start and 3V and work your way up.
    You do not want to assume that it is the same as the LT (mentioning the LT because if you own a Provari, I'm not sure why would you be looking at a Vmax ).

    P.S. - I do hope to own a Provari one day like how I wish to be riding a Goldwing one day. Money for quality, branding and a class of its own.

    Ah. Original version then. Apparently new 'improved' versions are now shipping with better calibration and button improvements. These default to 3v it seems. Not to worry as ours will likely prove to be the collectors item with the factory turbo option

    The BMW K1600.... that is actually another option. Price not too far away from the GL1800 but all these is way in the future when either I get a higher paying job or strike the lottery.

    VFR800, with V-TEC right? I test rode the Honda Crossrunner which uses the same engine downtuned and when the V-TEC kicks in, wow!

    I'm now on a 10-year-old Pan European. Has about 100k miles on the clock but still runs day in, day out. It's my daily commute to and fro work. I have another Bandit 650 (oil/air cooled) running a Leo Vince without baffles which I run once in a while when the wife's not needing a ride.

    Nope. I hated the VTEC. I have a 5th generation non-vtech 2000 model with the gear cams. It's the only 'true' VFR if you ask the purists...hehe. Mine is in MINT condition and I looked long and hard for it. It's actually my 2nd 2000 VFR. I loved the bike so much that I had to find another and was lucky to get my hands on one with 19,000km's and babied all its life. I wore my last one out I've been on 50 other bikes since owning my VFR and would not trade it for any of them....with the exception of the K1600 of course which I came VERY close to buying.

    That Pan European, like most Hondas will run forever as I'm sure you're aware. The Bandit is a cool bike too. Very versatile. Now all we have to do is come up with a helmet mod for vaping while riding!

    Ya it's not surprising that we don't have the 1.1's yet. Likely they'll be distributed in EU and Asia first. By the time they get here perhaps they'll even have another color offering.

    You know I've been playing with this thing for a week now and for the life of me cannot think of any practical use for a newer version that put out less power at its indicated 3v. What it produces at this setting is the least I would ever wish to use I think, say for a 1.5 atty. Even then I usually select something higher.
