Re: 1993 XV1100 Broken idle mixture boss

The only safe long term fix is replacement. Several here have made a single carb conversion and nay be able to help you with a good body at a normal price. I would not expect to pay more than 150 for a complete set unless overhauled and perfect. The 700, 750, 1000 and 1100 from 84 on use the same ba...

Re: XV920 UK MOT and Headlight

You MAY get away with a piece of black tape on the sector throwing light further ahead on the right, but most likely you will need a new headlight in order to pass MOT.

Re: What alternative wheels can fit [INFO.]

What a pity that they did not grab that opportunity! That forum had members contributing noticeably more. Not necessarily more or better information overall, but definitely more activity.

Re: What alternative wheels can fit [INFO.]

The harness of the 1982 920 would be different due to the instruments, but the 750 harness should work fine with the 920 engine AFAIK.
