Taking Suggestions for Website Improvements

Post by Rob » Fri Apr 09, 2021 4:22 am

Watch for changes to the website......

Thanks to everyone! Joe is correct most I do is work and sleep. I do however make time to keep this place greased and oiled:) I am currently working on moving all the articles from the wordpress side of the site onto this forum side. Ive wanted to do this for awhile. I estimate 60 hours or so of work plus many more buttoning things up after its is live. I have a decent start on it. This will greatly improve the site plus im hoping reduce the resource load slightly so this hosting upgrade holds us for the future. I hate hackers, bots, and ads, I'll do my best to keep all 3 off the site as much as I can. Have a great spring and ride safe everyone!

If anyone has any suggestions please feel free to let me know. Anything at all. Something you think that can be improved. A change you would like to see... anything! I would really appreciate any input and involvement from the community.

Rob

I am also a member of the Triumph Trophy 2012 on forum and they have a gallery page where members bikes, upgrades modifications etc can be viewed. As I spend a lot of time viewing internet image pages for Viragos and freeze framing youtube videos for inspiration, I was just wondering????

Maybe somewhere people/mods can post what tools are needed for a specific repair?
just so we can look at say how to change a starter motor and get our tools ready instead of wasting time and trying to look for what we need.

Vendetta,

Some Information is already here. You just have to look for it.

Cam Timing Marks

As for starter systems. A lot of things have changed from 1981 to 1999 regarding starters for various models of Virago's. Engine sizes being a big factor!

Would you do one for your 1987 XV700 starter replacement or any other work that you have done on your Virago. I know other XV700 owners would love to have that information, and appreciate the time you spent in developing the article. Thanks in advance.

We (Rob and I) try to provide information like the above. This information is time consuming to create and we appreciate any help of having members posting information to help us all in the Virago community. Then Rob can place that information in "Member Submitted Help Articles" in the left side panel on this website.

We look forward to whatever you and/or other members may provide.

Take a look at all the articles that have been provided thus far in the Member Submitted Help Articles.

Rob was basically asking how he can improve on how the website works. He really doesn't need any additional work to do how to's, nor do I. Just say'n.
