  1. Good to see us back on line, everyone was having withdrawal symptoms.
  2. If the carbs bolt up to the motor, maybe they bought and older set of carbs rather than rebuild the ones on the bike. Mike Eycamp may know he is heavy into carb rebuilding and swapping.
  3. There was a change to the Royal Star line in 1999 when they introduced the Venture. The carbs on the Venture are different than the carbs on the regular Royal Stars. The 1996 to 2000 NON Venture Royal Stars all had 28mm carbs. The 1999 to 2013 Ventures had 32mm carbs. Just be sure you are looking at the correct parts fiche.
  4. Go to someplace like Home Depot and get something like this, they may even have smaller diameter ducts for RVs and things. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Everbilt-4-in-x-8-ft-Flexible-Aluminum-Dryer-Vent-Duct-BTD48HD/203626496
  5. Had one run out in front of the group I was riding with on Saturday on the North side of Deland, crossed the road, ran along side of the road and then crossed back in front of the lead rider, just enough to get your attention.
  6. I noticed a huge slow down in packages going north of the border as soon as the Covid mess started, it was almost like they let it set to decomtaminate or something. Try shipping something to Australia, now that was painfully slow.
  7. Yeah toyed with that idea, but it was about 1/2 the cost of painting, what I did was 1/10th the cost of painting.
  8. I never was really happy with pulling my black Bushtec Roadstar behind my red Goldwing, but on my retired budget there was no way I could justify spending the money to have it painted, so I removed the chrome edge guard and replaced it with red edge guard. I think it it looks OK.
  9. Read this post from VGoose, it is quite good. https://www.venturerider.org/forum/showthread.php?37353-Some-Tips-on-Changing-the-2nd-Gen-Coolant
  10. I had very good luck with both of these methods. 1) Using a new allen in a socket set up , do not use a ball end allen. Use a hand impact tool and smack it hard. 2) Using a new allen in a socket up, do not use a ball end allen. Using a good sturdy breaker bar, apply force in loosening direction and smack the joint on the breaker bar so the shock wave goes straight down the axis of the allen.
  11. One small correction to VideoArizona’s post, I make a lot of different harnesses and will customize to suit the user, but I am not the member making the ignition bypass harness. That would be Dion DJH3 I think is his screen name. I am happy to help once you know what you want to do, I am also OK with giving out my sources for electrical hardware for those who want to do it themselves.
  12. I shamelessly stole this from the Goldwing forum I frequent, I have not tried tie tip yet, but thought I would pass it along in case it can help anyone in need. "If everyone else in the world knows this, then I apologize, but as a small way of repaying all the help I've gotten here, I offer this tip for stripped plastic threads: The 2018 has a rear side panel held fast by a screw into a plastic block. If you're ham-handed, it is easy to strip. Which I did. An easy, if inelegant, way to repair this is with steel wool. Tear off a chunk of SOS or Brillo pad, twirl one end into a long point,
  13. If you want to wire to the back side of that power port inside the fairing, I can set you up with neat little plug and play 2 pin break out adapter.
  14. Oh poop ,now you have to shock the pool to sanitize it
