  1. Have been using the same VW bug fuel filter on my Yamaha's. 80 XS 1100 -83 venture -2002 venture -2007 venture. cost is about $4.00 now and never had a problem. The parts stores all carry them and I just throw a year at the counter person and they put it on the counter. Works good and is versatile and frugal.
  2. Did not look so see what bike you own. Sorry about that and no disrespect intended. I think the post of my 83 Venture pics are still in my VRGallery and I had a few thing on it but those parts would be kinda hard to find but they are out here. I just have not made it to Oregon yet but it is on my list.
  3. I thought we had a crash on the sight before "06" I could be wrong but we had some kind of thing happen. FREEBIRD would know for sure.
  4. LOL Thank you for the info now my burning desire has been fulfilled. This is why I love you guy's your full of great info.
  5. Here is some stuff to add. I have added more just have not taken new pics.
  6. I joined as soon as Freebird started the sight and have really never payed attention to what number I am. Their have been gaps because I forget to renew and have never thought of a member number. I figure FREEBIRD knows where I'm at and it's O.K. by me. I wouldn't even know were to look and if it was important he would let me know. I have gotten so much info here and met so many great people and rides I don't think it matters.
  7. After instaling I adjusted my headlight on low beam. Bike on flat sulrface 25 feet from a wall I measure from center of headlight to the ground. Then on the wall I measured the same height and used a 3 ft level and draw a straight line then adjusted my headlight to the middle of line. In comparison these daymakers on low beam are about the same as my Chevy truck and on bright are about the same. In my opinion the bike light is just fantastic. And truly light up the road without blinding on coming traffic.p]
  8. I will post pics of what I did and write out how I did it and if is worthy FREEBIRD can be posted in the Technical library. O.K. I got it done and hope this may help someone else. It is a job for sure but well worth it headlight and driving light set I bought on Amazon Prim. https://www.ebay.ca/…/7-inch-Headlight-Mounti…/163339540192… This is the replacement ring I had purchased for the new headlight. You cannot use the old ring or attempt to use old light housing because you need the locking tabs for the new light to mount. The driving lights more or less plug and play. When taking apart the original light housing first thing is to remove the plastic retainer on the top of light housing. DO NOT BREAK IT and be careful with it treat it like gold. To remove it mark the top with a marker then you have to put your thumb in behind the plastic and take a small screwdriver and push in on both sides while pushing with your thumb. Once off put it in a safe place. I broke the glass out of housing and I used a propane torch on the back side of light to heat up the rubber glue so I could scrape it away to get to the brackets to Dremel. I cut the light housing brackets off with a Dremel to remove old light housing off old headlight. Draw a center line down middle between the two mounting holes and the new housing to line up mounting bucket to clamp housing brackets before drilling and pop rivet. I also held the new headlight in place in the locking tabs mounting bucket to insure center of headlight and the center lines lined up. I had to cut the back side of the new housing out to accommodate the new light and bend the flange and put it on work bench and hammered it flat to be able to clamp the housing to the mounting bucket and make sure your lines line up as perfect as you can to drill 1/8 holes for pop rivets. While clamps are on drill holes and pop rivet housing and mounting bucket. After you have it pop riveted and it’s to your liking now you can put the plastic holder on the shaft and slide it into the bracket. Then put outer ring on and screw in place then mount on the bike. Trim the tabs down were the screws go in and bend them back so they do not touch the chrome headlight rim so you have room to adjust the headlight up and down. If any question ask.

  10. This is one of the best winter projects you can do for your VENTURE. I did this about 8 months ago and wanted to see how they held up these Daymakers are just that and then some. Well worth the time and money.
  11. Thanks for the help. I found 2 that fit.
  12. Doing really good at being retired. Retired in July and am loving it. Riding my 07 Venture trike and I keep adding bling. One of the best things I have done is replace the headlight and driving lights with Day makers. OH what a difference it was a little work but well worth it. I highly recommend the up grade.
  13. I own a 2007 Venture with a triwing conversion and a 4.5 degree Hannigan easy steer. 6 degree is to much I was told by the experts. I do love this Hannigan and it steers like it has power steering. I would really like to find a car tire to mount on the front. When I ordered from Hannigan they told me it was a 6 degree but the installer checked it and it is a 4.5 degree he called them and they said it must of been labeled wrong. This would be a useless post without pics so here are 2. I run 40 psi front and 25 psi rear and it is excellent. If your front tire gets low it will shake or wobble at low speeds. 2 wheeled bike will do the same if front tire gets low.
  14. I really don't need to put reverse on it for now. But will keep it in mind. One never knows.
