  1. Working great for around 2 years and thousands of miles. Thanks, and I will keep my eye on it.
  2. Replaced the rear brake master cylinder and reservoir with a more modern set up. I think it came off a Royal Star Venture from the 2000’s?
  3. I would loosen all 4 air filter box clamps and remove the airbox. Then loosen all 4 air intake clamps and pop the carbs out. Silicone grease the o- rings on the top and bottom of all 4 carbs. Maybe a light coating on the inside of the intakes. Try and seat the carbs back into the intakes with downward pressure in a cross pattern, like tightening lug nuts. Good luck!
  4. Added angle braces to package tray to support extra weight in mounted box.
  5. Try cutting a slot in the center of the bolt with a hacksaw or cutting wheel on a die grinder. Get a flat tip bit on an impact drill in the slot and go easy on the trigger. Good luck!
  6. Center stand mod. I cut around 2 inches off the bottom of the center stand and welded some cross tube on the feet to make a “ride off” stand. It is very easy to pop on the stand (even in flip- flops) and rear wheel is on the ground when on the stand. I carry 2 small chunks of 2x4 to tip the center stand on to lift the rear wheel off the ground or stabilize on soft ground.

  8. Replaced squeeling speedo with this Trailtech digital unit. Has a magnet gorilla glued to the rotor. Removed the old cable/ housing and capped off the drive at the wheel
  9. Added expanded metal and window screen over the radiator guard for extra protection from road debris and bugs.
  10. Spray on truck bed liner for top case, fenders, radiator guard and wind scoop.
  11. These are the baja designs ‘wide cornering’ driving lights. Tons of light!
  12. Added a brace on each side of the front crash bars. Braces cut from the rear crash bars I took off awhile ago. I have dropped the bike a few times, and the stock bars fold right up. They are very strong now, as I can stand on them with no movement. Hope this helps!
  13. After much riding and camping on the old venture, I decided to put some BMW luggage on for better storage. BMW mounting hardware modified to fit the Venture
