Greetings I'm Matt live on the east coast work the entire lower 48 found a bike i couldnt pass on due to condition an mileage hopefully i can pick some of your brains for knowledge on thes giant Yamamonsters
just picked up a 84 venture royale only 9,000 miles the bike is a 8.5 out of 10 garage queen just a blemish here or there ....so i ride it home today and stop look down an there is fluid on the bottom of the left front fork its not the fork seals it looks like the anti dive system ?
being an 84 i am sure there is lots of things waiting to give me a fit ...I will apologize ahead of time for my tons of questions as i am sure there will be many . I also i am notorious for run on sentences sorry . .....
things I am curious about
1 swapping the forks out for an updated version and also replacing the rear shock possibly dropping the air ride system
2 what kinds of exhaust will fit the Venture
3 solutions for the heat on your legs ( holy moly i got cooked )
4 adding lights fog , marker , swapping radio , losing the air ride
5 curios about the single carb swap maybe try a webber 40mm
and I am sure tons more ...pic is of my bike today when i bought it
