    83 Yenture Royal
  1. I replaced my coils with coil on plugs from a CBR 1000RR 06 07. You will need an aftermarket TCI to do this. Here's a thread on the conversion. http://www.venturerider.org/forum/showthread.php?t=84447&highlight=coil+plug
  2. I saw a 1st gen Venture on US 223 Between Adrian and Blissfield, Michigan. Belong to anyone here?
  3. I have Kenda Kruz on the rear of my 83 and I have been very happy with them. I also had them on my HD Sportster. http://www.kendatire.com/en/motorcycle/street/kruz/
  4. Are these going to still available in a month or two? I'm not quite ready right now Sent from my ASUS Transformer Pad TF700T using Tapatalk
  5. For those who use Tapatalk to view the forum on your Android devices the new version upgrade is on sale. "Tapatalk 4 - super launch sale!! $0.99. Was $4.99. Only one week. Upgrade Tapatalk 2 to Tapatalk 4 with HD tablet support for less than a dollar!"
  6. I do believe it was Porsche who assisted with development of the Vrod's Revolution engine with HD.
  7. The drawaback of DOT 5 is since it does not absorb water any moisture that gets into the system will settle in the lowest point (usually the capliper) and start rusting. If you change dot 3, 4 or 5.1 every year or 2 any moisture that it absorbs will not be an issue.
  8. All you need to do fo a tach on the sync gauge is to have the software count the vacume pulses on one of the cyclinders and caluclate the RPM. At least I think that would work. At the shop we have a digital vacume gauge that has an RPM option and it only connects to the vacume ports.
  9. Thanks for letting me/us the use of your code. I'm thinking of using this Arduino bord, as it has USB compatibility with Android. http://www.adafruit.com/products/563?gclid=CJzM0rqjhLgCFe3m7AoddFwABw I'm using this project as a learning setping stone for another project I have in mind. I want to make a replacement dashbord for my bike using an Android tablet as the display.
  10. The forks could also be low on fork oil. Probably would not hurt to go ahead and change the fork oil.
  11. I know this thread is a bit old. I came across someone who did a similar project using some of the same equipment http://www.instructables.com/id/Arduino-Throttle-Body-Syncronization-Shield I'm working on using a Arduino bord like the link above, but I want to use my Android tablet or phone do display 4 graphs. It's going to take me a bit to do this because I need to learn the programming.
  12. I think the 7/8" universal ISO grips will work. That's what I'm planing on getting for mine. For the antenna I have dual Firesticks, one for the radio and one for the CB.
  13. I need to add my thanks to freebird and all the others who help make the MD happen This was my first one and am looking forward to next years MD. Sent from my HTCEVOV4G using Tapatalk 4 Beta
  14. I'm one i of those people who love the old jeeps. A CJ7 is my dream car. Hope you make it home safe Sent from my HTCEVOV4G using Tapatalk 4 Beta
