  1. It is possible without taking the inner fairing loose. It's a tight fit, but it will go. I just did it a couple months ago.
  2. I've been wondering the same thing lately. I've had good luck with Dyna coils in the past, so that's the direction I'd be going if I knew they'd work. If they'll work properly, I can make them fit.
  3. I don't see anything in those pics that would scare me away, especially the freckling on the visors. They're removeable and not necessary, so there's no reason to even worry about them. The only piece(s) I'd be concerned about are the the fork shrouds, but some Nevr-Dull and a bit of #0000 steel wool would probably take care of most (if not all) of that.
  4. Is that an additional trunk/tour pack?
  5. I'd also be worried about the overall length of the bike compared to the width of the tow vehicle. My '06 RSV, for example, is significantly longer than the width of my 2012 Tundra.
  6. I would be looking at plug boots/caps before coils, but weak coils is a possibility. I've been experiencing a missing/stumbling under load, and I traced some of the problem back to bad factory plug caps. I replaced the ones in cylinders #1 & #2 with new NGK SD05F, and the situation improved drastically. Managed to replace #4 as well, but the factory plug wire on #3 is too short to do the swap. I had to order a bit of 7mm wire and a NGK J1 plug wire splicer. Hopefully I'll have a chance to install it this afternoon.
  7. How often do you intend to haul your bike? U-haul has some really nice little motorcycle trailers that they rent out for dirt cheap. You could haul your bike several times a year, for multiple years, before you got anywhere near the cost of owning a trailer. The only problem I've had with the U-haul motorcycle trailers is the fact that they're not available for one-way rentals and must be returned to the same location where you picked it up. I was told that this is because these particular trailers aren't owned by U-haul corporate, but by the independent locations actually renting them out.
  8. If I had to guess, I'd say he did it because it's already out of the frame so everything is easy to get to. I probably would've done it too.
  9. Let me start by saying, this is not a "for sale" post. I'm simply looking for info at this time. Is there any demand for the stock 2nd Gen Venture antennas? I have both off my '06 and won't be putting them back on, but I don't know if it's worth it to post them for sale or simply toss them into a corner of the basement and save them for the next owner.
  10. I guess, theoretically, you could mount your phone on the reservoir mount and your GPS on the handlebar... I just use my phone as my GPS. 🤷‍♂️
  11. I think it's an okay deal if you're going to keep it and have the time and desire to do the motor swap, but if you're looking to fix and flip, it may not be worth the time/money. Maybe write your offer and name/number on a piece of paper and let him think about it for a while. I don't really think people will be beating down his door to take this project off his hands.
  12. Would the RAM offset reservoir mount not work for you? Easy, cheap, and can be transferred to the next bike. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B003CMNXIO/ref=cm_sw_em_r_mt_dp_CCQ1945PCKB4J20Z7FAG?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1
  13. Not mine, but there's a little Coleman trailer for sale just NW of Atlanta. https://www.theoutdoorstrader.com/threads/fs-ft-1984-coleman-caboose-trailer.2477318/
  14. Realistically, you're likely to be in it for a little over $2k once you factor in misc supplies to get it fully functional (plugs, oil, filter(s), etc) Guess it boils down to how comfortable you are doing the work, your tool/workshop situation, and the amount of free time necessary to complete the task.
