  1. My first gen toppled over the kick stand on a hill as I was stopped loaded with gear and a passenger. Nothing broke and I didn't notice any scratches (on sure there was something..,) Sent from my VS987 using Tapatalk
  2. Pvc pipe inside the pods Sent from my VS987 using Tapatalk
  3. I don't think air boxes are designed to create a restriction so much as to create dead air (a constant pressure) around a velocity stack which gets the proper air velocity past the jets. I put pic tubes inside my local pods on an old suzi with vm26 carbs and it helped immensely. I also partially shielded each pod with foil tape. Sent from my VS987 using Tapatalk
  4. Are c.v. carbs more sensitive then old slide carbs like a mikuni vm26 Sent from my VS987 using Tapatalk
  5. If he's buying the ignitec, he could leave the to in there if the mounting screws present a problem. Sent from my VS987 using Tapatalk
  6. Video was boring af. Suggest get the go running and the stop and rude it without a seat to see if it could be comfortable with a custom seat. After that if you want to get crazy, take off the tail section. (& fuel tank?)and it will look like a drag bike. Idk how it would be riding lime that but you could fab a seat and rear fender on that. Then maybe stacks on the carbs (yes everyone will say it won't run but I bet it could with jetting and change the muffs. Yep, then the handlebars and that mess up front with the fairing goes.

  7. Nope. And others will chime in. On my '84, I took out my tci to troubleshoot and definitely didn't remove main front fairings (although my front lowers and sides were already off). It was some work with a short Phillips head I think or maybe a right angle Phillips drive. I removed the airbox and got in from the carb side. But if you are just gonna install the ignitec ignition, you need only get the cabling off to connect to the to ignitec harness. The ignited mounts on too of your airbox and you will need to get a map sensor with it. Dingy was selling a kit with the ignited programmed with his map and included the harness and map sensor. All plug and play. I bought the connector so I could modify the ignition curve but never felt I needed to do it (the only thing I should do at minimum is make the rev limit higher, I think its at 7400 from dingy and I would go 8100, I think 8500 is safe but pushing it. Buy I,g direct from ignitec i don't know what curve you get Sent from my VS987 using Tapatalk
  8. Now I know if my 4 brush starter wears out, I can upgrade my cables and put the 2 brush back in!!! Sent from my VS987 using Tapatalk
  9. I bought heavy cable and lugs along with a 4 brush starter and after testing the starter alone found I didn't need to upgrade my cables. Bike starts hot or cold easily every time but this isn't to say that it wouldn't crank faster with heavier cables. That said, a 2 brush starter has no business in any of these bikes and its a wonder to me that Yamaha wasn't forced to do a recall (or is that only safety issues). I saved my 2 brush starter because people sell them on eBay but why would anyone buy one? Sent from my VS987 using Tapatalk
  10. And solder and crimp lugs. Never seen a cable corrode to a battery terminal. Sent from my VS987 using Tapatalk
  11. That last Vegas trip didn't look fun. You made a tough decision sound logical. I wonder the same sometimes but more if ill be hanging up my helmet because I'm dead or I can no longer ride. I had another accident last year and my neck is bothersome and it makes my throttle hand go numb while riding. Now even short rides its going numb and its stiff and I'm getting a little nervous riding within 30 miles of my home because its so traffic dense (& I hate to say it but seems the drivers are worse now then ever). good that you are staying connected to the group tho because its a good group and people need people.

  12. Does the bracket not have the pin in the same place?& Sent from my VS987 using Tapatalk
  13. I could have sworn that after delinking, my rear brake was touchy and would skid with moderate pedal force. Sent from my VS987 using Tapatalk
  14. I didn't think I made that up about our ventures. If its raining good and hard tomorrow, ill try to isolate caliper or line for the hard braking and overkill or return or caliper or line for the dragging. Sent from my VS987 using Tapatalk
  15. Fluid expands when hot and I thought we had a venture rider solved his dragging brakes with a spurt out the bleeder. And I can't see the sightglass in reservoir. And certainly the return hole will keep them dragging. But neither will make it harder to stop. I'll work on a caliper. Sent from my VS987 using Tapatalk
