One place that may have all of this info is a dealer or repair center that works on this model here.If this is not an option for you or was already attempted let me know so we can continue.

Hi my name is ***** ***** for the bad experience prior, not sure that I will give you the answer that you will like but for me to move forward I would need to know the year of the VMAX that you are questioning if those parts will work in your 99 Virago, it might be a few days but I should be able to give you an idea if it will even be close, you also have to remember that there are other variable's that come into the equation that you have not thought about, but if you would like me to research this I will give it a shot.

Also just so you know, most of us experts don't really get into the mixing and matching of parts for the reason of making everything fix, sometimes its an easy bolt up, but not usually the case. If you don't mind can you explain what happened to your part on your Virago ? Don't rate me or this question until we figure out hat you can do, and if you are not happy I will let customer service know and they will be glad to refund your money.

Thanks Kenny

There is nothing wrong with the hub on my virago. I read on a yamaha forum that some of the rear hubs from the V-Max and Venture will fit my bike if i want to have higher gears for lower RPM on the highway. Trying to find out if this is true and which years will work and the gear ratio of them.

OK,I get what you are looking for, I will be honest, likely you will not find anyone on this site (expert) that has performed this swap, we are here for our knowledge of repairs and diagnosing problems. You would be better to get someone on a forum that has physically did one of these swaps to insure that it will actually work, then if you are going to perform the repair yourself and have questions, then I would urge you to come back to JA because that is our specialty, the mixing and matching of parts is way to much unless we actually perform it on our own units.

The amount if time to that it would require to just figure out if the parts would even match up would be tremendous and then as I said unless we physically tried it ourselves it might be a big waste of time. Probably not the answer you were looking for but rather you spending your money and a lot of time on our part, I think I offered you the best solution to what you are looking for. I will opt out and let customer service know that they should refund your money.

Thanks again

Kenny
