Re: 1991 XV1100 Handle Bar end weights (COMPLETED)

I have mounted a camera on the steering bar, but boy does that vibrate.... not cool for the end result video, but surely no es bueno for the electronics in the camera....

Re: 1996 XV1100 Yuasa Battery Life Span - Update

OT OH!! Another Update. Well Boys and Girls, After all my excitement with the 12.9 volts reading. It was inevitable, my 13 year old battery in the Virago gave up the ghost yesterday.
