☆This time I personally need your help....☆
This was a tough decision to decide on. I generally stay behind the scenes keeping this site chugging along. Joe, is the one that gives out the amazing wealth of knowledge he has. I've put an amazing amount of time into the bringing together this website and not to mention have footed the bills a few times. I've kept us hacker free for a damn long time. I never ask much of you guy/gals. Only if we get in crunch time and the site needs a little help. Ive never asked for the ridiculous thousands I have seen another site ask for.. ridiculous is the perfect word. I even removed ads for those that log in, severely cutting revenue. Sites been about helping people, not making money. I feel bad actually doing this.. but I need help. I have gastroparesis brought on from diabetes(20+ years). I've been struggling with this nightmare for over 3 years. Finally diagnosed beginning this year. Look it up. Look up worst cases... that's me. Ive lost 60 lbs since January. 28 days ago the company I've worked for for many years found their dirty lil way to fire me. I was approved for up to 3 days off a week for fmla.. that really pissed them off. So illegally fired, savings drained from medical bills, bad diabetic now with no insurance. I'm in deep shit. That is politely saying it unfortunately. If any of you guys cant help please at least keep me in your thoughts. If this was wrong, me asking for help, my apologies. I'm declining in health fast, and unemployment hasn't came through yet and that in itself is a nightmare. Anyone who can, please donate to the website. This time it goes to help me. Thank you everyone. Again, my apologies for asking. I honestly don't know what to do or where to turn.

UPDATE: THERE HAS ALREADY BEEN A FEW OF YOU DONATING. THANK YOU SO MUCH, I'M LITERALLY IN TEARS AS I TYPE THIS. EVERY PENNY COUNTS. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR BEING THE HEROES RIGHT NOW.

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. The original headlight is terrible, barely able to reach the ground with some hint of light, so upgrading would make sense anyway. ...

Let us know how things go. The 1100 wheel should bolt right on, but will require a brake change.

Re: 1981 XV750J Wiring Harness Issue (West Yorkshire, UK)

They use the same stator, pickups, ignition coils and TCI-unit, which are the important bits. So as long as only the engine has been changed from 750 to 920, it should be plug and play.

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. It would be nice if we could increase the engagement here as well, because the foundation is here what with your...

Re: What alternative wheels can fit [INFO.]

That is what has been pictured and explained online. All was documented on the now apparently defunct viragotechforum. But I must reiterate that I do not have first hand experience.

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.

Welcome! Wiring harness should work with the 920 engine also.
