Re: 1994 XV750 Mounting or Lowering rear fender frame

Weight for you and her, not an issue here. Depending on what type of torches you have. To bend thick heavy metal will take a lot of heat to d...

Re: 1994 XV750 Mounting or Lowering rear fender frame

Mozzer, What's your reason for wanting to do this?!! I have to totally agree with my friend geezyrider. Payload numbers aren't provided for bikes like they are for passenger cars and trucks. Most bike manufacturers don't provide payload numbers. At least, I haven't see any. If you have, let us know....

Re: 1988 XV400 Changing the seat

Putting on a late model fuel tank to allow for duel fuel (distances in Australia are insane) and also changing the seat to the late model 535 seat.

Re: 1988 XV400 Changing the seat

Hey everyone. I'm wondering if I can change the standard seat upon my Virago 400 (same as the 535) so it looks more like the split seat upon the Virago 250. My fuel tank is under my seat so it would still have to allow me access. I've put some pics below to show what I mean. The red bike is mine wi...

No. LED Bulbs are usually always less wattage wise compared to Incandescent Bulbs. Standard Headlamp Halogen Bulb is 60-55 Watts and get really HOT . If you touch the front glass with the palm of you hand. There is a good chance you will leave behind skin! LED replacement is 24-18 Watts. You get gre...

Re: 1993 XV1100 need more AMPS for led light bar

G'DAY Joe the only other power draw is the 60 watts headlight think about 5 watts for tail light. So say i used 120 watts LED light bar + the 60 watts head light =180 watts total. - 180 watts from the xv1100 280 watts out put leaves me a 100 watts to spare. but as the info in the link you put up sa...
