Re: 1994 XV750 Where to buy parts & Clutch Cable Issue

OOP's I misread your post. I found one by just entering Key word Aftermarket Headlight. Just forgot what the URL is.

Re: MOTORCYCLE TIRES - How They're Made and More [INFO]

Don't know if it was mentioned or not but if you change your own tires be sure too align the yellow dot next to the tire valve for proper balancing. And make sure the arrows are pointed in the direction of rotation for proper dispelling of water out to the side that helps against hydroplaning. Note:...

Re: 1999 XV535 -- Weird reserve fuel problem [CLOSED]

Jayspring, I fought that problem just like you. And decided to keep track of mileage just like you. I don't let it get over 120 miles before gassing up. (my 535 will usually get to 145-150 miles before running out). Re: the reserve switch. it is at the bottom of the sub tank and is a Snollygoster to...

Re: 1991 XV535 New and introducing my Virago

Ditto Joe, But one has to be leg disadvantaged like me to ride that XV535. But yes, it has definitely lots of muscle for only being a 535cc. And it's a darn good cruiser for it's size. At 88 years old this will probably be my last bike, and they will probably have to pry my Cold dead fingers from th...

Re: 1994 XV535 Petrol Valve

Joe. I clamped off the hose going from the tank back to the sub tank, not knowing that both hoses fed the sub tank. Got gas all over the place before getting the hose back on the fitting. Decided that it wasn't worth the trouble and will just monitor mileage like I have been doing. Again, thanks for...

Re: 1994 XV535 Petrol Valve

Joe, Thanks for that info. And yes, that reserve switch is in a nasty position to get to. I can see it without having to use a mirror, but getting to it is going to be another thing. That one time that it ran out it was at 160 some miles, so I will just keep track of my mileage and not go over 100-1...

Re: 1994 XV535 Petrol Valve

okay, I will do that. And yes come to think of it, that tank wasn't really all that heavy. And BTW, thanks for the tip about the reserve switch over valve.
