Did your bike come with it, or did you buy it somewhere? If it's working so well for you, I'm really eager to find the same thing.
It came with the bike when I purchased it. As far as I know, he was the only owner and it all came from the Dealers showroom. Even the saddle bags.

Re: Flyscreens [SOLVED]

Yarek, Do an internet search for: Fork mounted wind Baffles or Deflectors. Folks have used these to elevate wind turbulence issues. My windshield has protrusions that go down far enough where they work as Baffles / Deflectors and eliminates that issue. Take a look at this topic: Windshields There's ...

Re: The 1982 Yamaha virago 750 project thread (Florida)

timebomb, As you will notice in the above topic and link. Some folks like (reuben) don't respond back on what we told them. To confirm, if it worked or not. We just assume it did, for if it didn't, folks would be back to say it didn't and would want to know what's next. Always good to have feedback ...

Re: The 1982 Yamaha virago 750 project thread (Florida)

Re: The 1982 Yamaha virago 750 project thread (Florida)

timebomb, Your above videos have been viewed. Your Virago needs a lot of TLC which you are going to find to be a challenging endeavor. Due to parts availability for a 40 year old bike and its current condition. We'll assume this was a non running bike when you obtained it based upon its condition in...

Re: Identify my Bike, Suppose to be a 1987 XV535 (Malta)

Ahhhh ViragoJoe thanks so much for your help! I am sorry for the mess about the VIN, they really looked like "O" (letters), they look different with the first 2 "O" (numbers) so I supposed they were numbers and letters. Anyway, I am not so worried about the papers, if the DMV guys are happy with th...
