The only exception is the occasional directions (or cop alerts) from the navigation app. I tried listening to music while riding but it's not for me. I prefer the V2 rattle :) ============ Hey js...

Re: Problems with a '94 535 (front cylinder, electric)

Thank's for the reply Joe. Ok so started the engine fired first time - from what I can tell is working fine on both cylinders. I wait for the 3mm clear tube to arrive to measure the carbs fuel level.

It is current. Would you like non-virago models removed? Thanks. =========== ECApproved, Yup, that would clear things up a bit. See what happens when you turn 30!
