"BOLT-ON POWER- Maxair ... Delivers"- RoadBike Magazine

This kit is custom made for your Yamaha V Star 1100 to eliminate its restrictive stock air-box and allow increased air flow to the carburetors. The Maxair Kit for the V Star 1100 (also known as the DragStar 1100 overseas)
Yamaha will improve your entire power-band with up to a 20% increase in torque and horsepower (or more). Easy installation and our Award Winning Technical Support, guarantee that your Beast will be Unleashed in mere days!

  • Turn Key install (complete kit with full color detailed instructions)
  • Best tech support in the industry
  • Cross-Over Max-Tube (balances filters - increased volumetric efficiency)
  • Positive Crankcase Venting (pulls moisture & gasses: cleaner oil- creates negative pressure under pistons for more power)
  • Anti Reversion Adapters - (reduces reversion -increased volumetric efficiency)
  • High Flow K&N Lifetime Filters (same filters used by a major racer on a RoadStar Warrior)
  • Up to 20% (or more) increase in power over stock (with aftermarket exhaust)

Filter Crossover Max-Tube (picture below) link the two  filters balances them and increase flow and volumetric efficiency. This in turn gives you the benefits of individual filters with the balancing effect of stock system !!

Our unique Positive Crankcase Ventilation feature "pulls" harmful moisture and gases from your crankcase and burns them in the combustion chamber. This results in cleaner oil and longer engine life with no harm to the carburetors. This is also the cleanest running system for your bike as well as for the environment....This system also eliminates the smell of these gasses while riding.

Also includes our custom machined, high velocity, anti-reversion filter adapters. It is our opinion that these adapters help to reduce the effects of reversion and increase velocity.

Includes all the jets and everything you need. You can leave your stock round air box in place for looks.

 

 Installed kit side view (pictured below) - our filters are well protected nestled up under the gas tank.. They are not seen when the tank is installed. 

Maxair Engineering has been recognized as an industry expert on the Yamaha V Star 1100 - Our products (including the Predator Pro) are sold and installed by Yamaha dealerships around the country!

Products we highly recommend to go with the Predator

  • The MaxMix Thumb-Screws- This makes adjusting the hard to reach the idle mixture screws a breeze.
  • Max-CSR kit  - If your bike is 2006 and newer (California 2004 or newer) we highly recommend this addition for best performance.

Now with greater jetting range! This is the next generation with our new adjustable needles. Our needles allow for tighter jetting tolerances. We saw improved throttle response and a 4 HP increase over the standard kit !!!

Our Predator Pro jet kit now comes with an expanded jetting range. If you have modified your engine you can purchase an even more extended range here . Unless you have modified your engine you will not need this extra range.

 


 

INTERNET MYTH vs. FACT: I have read on another website that your product may not work on newer 1100s and may even cause engine damage. Is there any truth to this claim?

There is no truth to this claim whatsoever. Our products are installed and recommended by Yamaha Dealerships across the country on 2006 and newer 1100s.

This is an unfortunate a smear campaign by a small group of self proclaimed "internet forum experts".  The same "internet experts"/website make no mention whatsoever of the numerous engines damaged by overpowered engine mods, such as poorly designed cam & pistons. In fact those same vendors are continually recommended on these websites. Vendors that sell competing products.  

We are recognized experts in the industry who use proper testing techniques and clean data to develop and refine our products.  The Predator has been fully tested with the 2006 and newer bikes. Thousands of our customers run the Predator on the 2006 & newer bikes.

 There is not one case of a Maxair Predator doing any kind of damage to a motorcycle in any way shape or form.  In fact one of our Tech Support Forum moderators runs a 2006 V Star 1100 with the Predator Pro & the Max-CSR kit and has since he purchased it new.  

Since 99 % of our Predator sales are from "word of mouth", with most of them being 2006 & newer bikes, we think the proof is there and in the testimonials on the product page. http://www.maxairengineering.com/mm5/merchant.mvc?Screen=REVIEWS&Product_Code=MK-YVS1-P&Store_Code=ME   

Should you have any further concerns please contact us and we'll be happy to address them.  303-810-9656

We fully stand by and guarantee the Predator Pro & MAX-CSR products.

 

 

 

 


 


Maxair Predator Pro Kit for the Yamaha V Star 1100 - FAQ

 

  • What is the Maxair Predator Pro and why should I purchase it for my V Star 1100 : The Predator Pro is a filter system that eliminates the stock restrictive air chamber and snorkel under the tank, allowing for maximum airflow and power gains. This kit has become well known among V Star 1100 aficionados, as the must have for the best power, while retaining real world drivability.
     
  • Is the Predator kit is both an air filter system and a re-jetting system? Yes it is a complete system, with everything you need (minus tools) for install and tuning. Also included, are full color instructions and access to our technical support forum where we will "hold your" hand through the install process.
     
  • I have heard about "POD kits". Is this a POD kit?  No our system is not a "POD kit". POD kits are put together "ad hock" using the stock needles and no Cross-Over tube. The Predator Pro kit is a proven system that has been Dyno and road tested to make sure all the components work together to achieve optimum performance. Don't be fooled by  imitations!!

    The heart of our system are the Predator Pro Needles, our Anti-Reversion Adapters, Cross-Over Max-Tube and our Positive Crankcase Vent System. The Predator Pro needle was specifically designed for the Predator system allowing for best performance, drivability and gas mileage. The stock needle was designed for a stock bike to satisfy EPA NOT for best performance when you eliminate the stock are system. 

    Our anti reversion adapters increase velocity and reduce reversion thereby increasing volumetric efficiency and power. There is simply no comparison to POD kits that use the stock needles and misc. parts.

    Our kit has also been made turn-key and we provide proper technical support. Our filters and adapters are designed to give the right flow and decrease reversion to provide the best performance.
     
  • How much of a power increase can I expect with the Predator Pro?  Please see the side by side Dyno charts on our website done by RoadBike Magazine. With a good aftermarket exhaust you should see a 20% increase over stock and often times better depending on the exhaust used.
     
  • I have a Maxair Predator purchased before 2006, is the Predator Pro a new version ?  Yes it is. The Predator Pro is the latest evolution of our legendary Predator kit providing even better power and throttle response.
     
  • How is the Predator Pro different:  The major difference is our new proprietary Predator Pro needle. The old style Predator used the stock needles which were designed to be used with the stock air system. We custom designed the Predator Pro needles especially for our air intake system, to offer better throttle response and general performance. Our test-bed V Star 1100 gained 4 hp over the old style Predator (results may vary).
     
  • Is there an upgrade for us Old Style Predator users:  Yes, for a limited time we are offering an upgrade to people who have purchased our old style Predator. You can find it here http://www.maxairengineering.com/mm5/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Product_Code=JETKIT-PRO  We must be able to verify your purchase of the old style Predator before filling this order.
     
  • Will the kit come with the exact size jets needed to be compatible with my exhaust system?:  Yes, the is very complete, with everything you need for ALL exhaust setups. Some major engine mods may require the Jet Bump Kit which gives you extra jetting. If your bike does not have major engine mods you will be good to go. If you have cams or HC pistons you may want to purchase the Predator Pro Jet Bump Pak for an expanded range of jetting http://www.maxairengineering.com/mm5/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Product_Code=JUC-1100PRO
     
  • Does the installation of the kit require any irreversible changes to the existing parts, especially the carburetors?  For example, to install the new jets, does any drilling need to be done that would prevent a return to the original equipment sometime in the future? : No, the only drilling that is done is to remove the plug the covers the idle mixture screw so you may adjust them. This can easily be adjusted back to stock and the plug is completely unnecessary.
     
  • Do the carburetors need to be re-calibrated when your system and aftermarket pipes are installed? : Yes, you do re-jet and we give you everything you need for a stock engine (extra jets can be purchased for bikes running aftermarket cams and/or High compression pistons)
     
  • Does the stock air filter cover remain on the V Star 1100 for aesthetic purposes once your new Predator system has been installed?: Yes, our filters are hidden under the tank so you can leave the stock doughnut cover in place for looks.
     
  • I would like to know if there is any power increase if I use the stock exhaust?  Yes you will see a noticeable gain in power. Not as much as you would see with a full system though.. We recommend a 2 into 1 exhaust for best performance. Slip-ons are a reasonable low cost option that will give you a tremendous power increase with the Predator Pro
     
  •  Will installing the Predator kit have a negative effect on my warranty:  No, This is a myth sometimes perpetuated by certain dealerships. See: Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act.  We have dealers that install our air kits before the bike has even been sold to increase its selling potential. Often times a customer will purchase a bike and the have the dealer install our air kit and a set of pipes off the showroom floor.
     
  • Does your kit use K&N filters, what is their life span and how often do the need to be cleaned: Yes, we use top of the line K&N filters that are guaranteed for a million miles. We recommend cleaning your filters at your 8000 miles valve adjustment, when you have your tank off anyway. If a filter should ever be damaged we will supply you a replacement, for a nominal cost. It would be very rare and unlikely to damage one however. Cleaner kits may be purchased here http://www.maxairengineering.com/mm5/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Product_Code=K99-5050
     
  • I have another air kit on my bike now. Can I leave this on for looks after installing your product?: Yes you may and this is a great way to go. "The Maxair for Go, the others for show!"  We also a nifty skull option http://www.maxairengineering.com/mm5/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Product_Code=Skull_Cover 
     
  • What are these Maxmix screws and why should I purchase them? The Maxmix screws found here http://www.maxairengineering.com/mm5/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Product_Code=MPS  are thumbscrews that eliminate the need for a screwdriver when making adjustments to your idle mixture. Yes we highly recommend these with the Predator Pro for ease of tuning.
     
  • I ride in the rain quite often. Will rain be an issue with the Predator Pro?: No, rain will not be a problem at all. We have never had a complaint or issue due to rain with the thousands of bikes that this kit has been installed on. We have ridden our own test bike daily through torrential downpours with no problems at all.
     
  • What gas mileage can I expect with the Predator Pro : The average is  42 to 48 mpg. 
     
  • Are these filters large enough for this application? : Yes . These are the size as the filters commonly used on the 1700cc Warrior. They provide more CFM than you will ever need. Remember too big of a filter can cause a decrease in overall performance and torque. Also our filter s designed for optimal flow while preserving proper filtration and together with our adapters reducing reversion for better torque in the lower rpm range.
     
  • Can I install this myself? :  Yes, most certainly. If you can change your oil and can follow instructions, you can do this in about 4 hrs. If any issues come up we are available around the clock on our technical support forum to "hold your hand" through the install process.
     
  • What tools will I need for this project. : You will need a basic set of screwdrivers, sockets and wrenches. Also a clean work area. You will need a way to adjust the float level which can be done with a metric caliper or you can use our Float level tool.  http://www.maxairengineering.com/mm5/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Product_Code=Float_Gauge  . After the install you should synchronize your carburetors. You can purchase the motion pro carb sync http://www.maxairengineering.com/mm5/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Product_Code=SyncPRO or you can make your own very cheaply with instructions found on our technical support forum. Synchronizing your carburetors is a regular maintenance item that should be done periodically on and bike with multiple carburetors so this is a good tool for future use.
     
  • I am concerned about adjusting my float level. Should I be and is this necessary? Adjusting your float level is a very simple job. We have full color instructions on our technical support forum on how to do this simple procedure. We have gone to great lengths to make this a very simple task. As a result t is the easiest part of the install process and should not take more than 10 minutes.
     
  • My bike has already been rejetted with another kit will I need to re-jet again? Yes,  you need to rejet using the jets we provide to accommodate the Maxair Predator Pro needle and the huge increase in air flow and power.
     
  • Can my local dealer install this for me. Yes - Anyone who can read and follow instructions can install the Predator Pro kit.
     
  • Are there any customer reviews I can read on the Predator Pro - Yes:   http://www.maxairengineering.com/mm5/merchant.mvc?Store_Code=ME&Screen=REVIEWS&Product_Code=MK-YVS1-P

5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Unbelievable bolt on power, 3.13.2014
Customer: L Wilson (Spanish Fort, AL)

I cruised the Maxair website for 6 or so months before purchasing the predator pro kit. A handful of folks I ride with have other versions of intakes and mods from other manufacturers installed on their rides. Some look sharp, some actually improved performance, others not so much. Well I wanted "my bike" not a carbon copy of a friends. I read the testimonials about the predator pro and decided to give it a shot. I ordered the predator pro kit, pro idle mixture thumbscrews, MAX-CSR, Barnett clutch spring conversion kit, and the Barnett clutch plates. I also ordered, from an external distributor, the Hard-Krome sideburner, 2 into 1 exhaust. Once all of the parts arrived the install commenced. The instructions provided with each part are very thorough and detailed, making the install incredibly easy. Okay, enough of the boring stuff. When I finished the install, the bike came to life the 2nd time I hit the switch. When I say came to life, I really mean CAME TO LIFE! If I didn't do the install myself I would not believe it was the same motor. Who knew there was so much power in the 1100. The bike has quicker throttle response, a hell of a lot more power, sounds unbelievable, looks fantastic with the factory air cleaner removed. These guys really have their $h!t together! If you are looking for some serious bolt on power, stop looking. You found it.

 

5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Best upgrade you can do to your 1100, 7.3.2013
Customer: Junior (Sedgewick, Alberta)

We are a 2 Vstar 1100 family, the typical his & hers. I did the Predator Pro on my bike first and loved it right away, had to do hers as well. The unfortunate thing, her bike a just a bit quicker and stronger than mine now :(. Hands down the best upgrade you can do. I have left my dog dish off which gets everyone asking questions right away. Great product, great service, all round great company. Thanks Maxair!

 

5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Oh, Yeah!, 2.28.2013
Customer: Mark (Woodland Hills, CA)

What a difference! My V-star 1100 ran hot, had a horrible stumble right off idle, and backfired like crazy. Spent 3.5 hours installing the Predator Pro with my brother-in-law and I just can't believe it's the same bike! Starts instantly, idles perfectly, runs cooler, and pulls like crazy right off idle. Haven't even synced the carbs yet! I am a believer! Left the air cleaner off so other MaxAir riders will know what's what. Those without the Predator Pro will have to catch me first...
