Re: 82 750 Starter fix questions

I have an 83 920 and had the same issue's. I first added a clip on the starter tension spring deal. That helped. I then bought a 4 brush starter and that made a world of difference. Never had the grinding problem after I did that. I have since changed the 1st generation starter to the 2nd generation...

Re: xv700 or xv1100 special wire wheels

Thought I would ask here as I am striking out online. I have a 95 XV 1100 & I am looking for wire wheels for the old girl. (I mean the bike! lol) I once thought that most V riders wanted to ditch the spokes and convert to the gold mags. But those wires are rarer than hens teeth. Hope you all can he...

Re: xv700 or xv1100 special wire wheels

I just bought a 700 for the wire wheels, cobra exhaust and a stock wind shield. Best way to get what I wanted and not have to spend a ton of money. I can part the rest out if I choose and save more.

Re: rear drive comparison

Re: Heel shifter

Wondering if you could help me with a measurement. Could you let me know the distance from the center of the foot peg back to the center of the shifter shaft. I do not have access to a 535 model and this will help me final design a heel shifter. thanks a bunch Rich
