  1. Hi, Looking for a used Zumo 660 if anyone is upgrading. Thanks Kelly
  2. Are the fronts and rears the same size? My rears have blown and not interested in upgrading them so looking for another stock set.
  3. Just to let people know that are thinking of upgrading to IE 9 a lot of web sites are not compatible with it yet so I would wait a little while until they catch up before upgrading. Tom
  4. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=260367822392&viewitem=&sspagename=STRK%3AMEWAX%3AIT Basically is this a even better version of the upgraded stator or is that all marketing hype and I should get the one from one of the sources listed here? I'm spoiling the bike now that I have a new job. I figure that if I have it apart, I might as well upgrade the stator as I am upgrading the Voltage Reg so I dont have to worry about it on the road this spring and summer...
  5. I tore down my first gen (87) to do some overdue maintenence, and finally took her out for a quick shakedown, and I must say, since I put in the new clutches and doubled up on the spring, this bike has no problem pulling the front wheel off the ground. WOW does she run! In any case I changed the clutches, changed the fork seals, upgrading to progressive springs, pulled and cleaned the starter, replaced the fuseblock, upgrading to atc fuses, added auxilliary driving lights, installed "highway" floorboards way up front, stripped, polished and clearcoated the engine covers, replaced front brakes, yanked the cheesy am fm cassette and cb that the last owner had installed, (don't plan on using them) Installed a pretty cool GPS with MP3 capability, installed a OEM trunk luggage rack, (it's a standard, so it didn't have one), and repaired the broken tabs on the bodywork. So now, with the riding season more than half over, I'm ready to start riding again, and I'm excited. I do HVAC work, so I'm usually pretty busy from May until about now, so I usually don't have much time to ride in the best part of Summer anyway, but I'll try to make up for it over the next month or two. I'm really pleased with how this bike runs. I only bought it this time last year, after researching the older "heavy" bikes, and decided that the Venture was the bike for me because it was generally accepted that it had more power and better handling than the GW, and I think I made a wise choice. I'm not into all the fancy schmancy stuff anyway, I just wanted a bike that the wife would be comfortable on the back of.....she never liked riding on the back of my Nighthawk, but now I think I'll like riding this more than my beloved 85 Nighthawk cb700sc. Just wanted to share my excitement, thanks for your attention.
  6. Thought I'd throw out pix of the carrier Gary made. Works like a gem. We bought the box from Fleet Farm and he did a little upgrading. Sure get a lot of comments when we use it! [attach]19422[/attach] [attach]19423[/attach] [attach]19424[/attach]
  7. My new to me 90 Venture seems to have fairly weak front brakes. The rear aren’t to bad but the front could really use some help. In reading some old posts it looks like the fix is to replace the front with calipers from a R1 or R6 and/or upgrade to stainless brake lines. And de-linking the brakes. For a novice like me, swapping the calipers looks like it would be a straight forward task. Replacing the brake lines would be a bigger job and de-linking the brakes bigger still. So my question, would just replacing the calipers make much of a difference? Will any year R1 or R6 calipers work? Do the rotors need to be replaced along with the calipers? Do the brakes need to be de-linked when upgrading? I’m thinking of upgrading in stages and seeing what helps. Thanks, Al
