Re: 1993 VX535 Supporting the bike for maintenance

The guy @ Cycle Therapy that replaced my tires did it with an overheard hoist raising the bike on the front tire and rigged the front titre to stay vertical and jacked up the rear of the bike with a floor jack under the drive shaft housing. Evidently not hurting anything.
Back to the drawing board!

Re: 1993 VX535 Supporting the bike for maintenance

Joe, That is not your average crankcase. For one thing, there is a place at the rear of the crankcase where a center stand can be mounted. Plus the center of that crankcase is extra heavy metal. And as far as the exhaust pipes goes, one would have to make a jig to prevent the lift from hitting them....

Re: 1994 XV535 Rear Fender Piece Wanted

Sorry Joe, I was referring to the color of the fender. Most years of XV535's would probably have the same type fender , but maybe they were painted a different color.

Re: 1983 XV 750 rear wheel conversion

I agree with Joe. And one other thing to remember when putting a bigger wheel and tire on is over loading the clutch and putting extra strain on the motor messing with gas mileage.

Re: 1993 XV535 FOR FIX & SALE

I had a 500 Kaw that acted similar after I purchased it. After checking everything I thought possible a mech said the cam chain was a link or two off. reset it properly and it ran like a raped Ape after that.

Welcome to the Forum. I'm just across the border in Birch Bay. My Virago XV535 fits my leg disadvantaged body just fine. Also Have a 1982 Honda Silverwing.

Re: PAINT SOURCE For Your Virago (ColorRite) DIY [INFO]

I ordered touch up paint from ColorRite and it was very close but way too light. And paint on a bike does not get darker over the years, it gets lighter. And the paint on my bike is a lot darker than the ColorRite touch up when I made a sample spray after it dried. I am going to send it back and see...
