    I thought I'd show you guys how we got a Memphis Shades windshield to play nice with a Cobra Angled light bar. I moved the windshield's bottom mount up to the top one, and drill a new bold hole above that to secure the windshield. Big thanks to Justin Austin for his help.

    • We both did it and neither had any problems what so ever...so have a load of others off the vtr.org forum.Easy enough,can't be seen or tell to know it's done. Takes Dave around 45 mins..Pm him and we'll sort it out and have a run out afterwards :-)

    • high test fuel has less impurities there for it causes less heat when it burns and it does burn faster as well, the impurities when compressed cause friction and can cause pre detonation witch is bad for any motor

    • mi Rebel esta original en un 90 % y lo del guardabarro delantero es un tema...es muy posible que lo saque y lo guarde, en su lugar pondre un chino estilo classic que cubren como los de los 50'...fue consejo de un amigo..no se si servira..pero al menos no salpicara al resto de la moto...mi ropa y botas no importa, son reemplazables..

    • no worries, just try and get the lines and diaphram with the tank...can be $xy otherwise genuine.... you can make the old lines fit at a stretch the problem/slightly short one is left as you sit on the bike...

    • I'm lucky, mine has a 19ltr tank on it being the last model before the SP1..So we'll see how good on miles it is as I had the standard 16ltr on previous one...

    • Does this hold true for all years of the magnas or just the early years? Mine is an 03

    • Great photo - sharp looking bike!

      Wiki page for the Hatton Ferry in Scottsville VA, supports that its the "last poled ferry"... it has guys poking it around with poles. It appears that the 3 remaining Willamette river ferries in Oregon are all "cable ferries". (Looked it up because I had never heard of a pole ferry before, and was intrigued... thought I would share what I found.)

    I have a problem with my -97 VTR F. I was accellerating in 2. gear when the engine suddenly stopped, maybe around 100km/t, and i had to clutch to not lock the backwheel. I started with the button again and kept on going for a little while when it happened again. I just fired it up and kept on riding, but now there was a bad noise from the engine from around 4000rpm and up, and less power. It sounds like the whole engine is dry, empty for oil, or something. But it isn't. I also feel som extra vibrations in the handles. I can't find any leaks or visible fail outside the engine. Anyone who's got an idea? :D

    • Stopper mod get my vote,works a treat and we did both our bikes and a mates with it! I think the manuals look ugly and you can see them! Tony is right...

    • There is a guy on the vtr1000.org site, called Bazza, he's here in the uk and he does a manual conversion to the honda auto ones that dont look to bad. Have a look at my profile Ive posted a photo of Bazza's conversion. On another note, if you do fitt manuals or do the stopper mod, don't go by the Haynes manual, if you do your time it up 180 degrees out and it wont run properly, have a look on vtr1000.org and these a procedure for doing it on there.

    • I had something like that happen to my vtr,turned out to be the diaphragm(spelling?) under the tank was cracked and only allowed a bit of fuel to go through. accelerate and the bike stopped,go slow and it ran ok.....

    • bugger that. grind it off and throw it away 30 second job. You probably will need to replace sprockets too though

    • Put on paddock stand - Take off the front left foot-peg hanger and you'll be able to take the old chain off in one go, and put a new endless chain on along with new sprockets. Remember to correctly torque up the swing arm afterwards ;-)

    • I used it to haul from ct to va no problems and didnt hardly notice it there

    • Why not? Is the shaft drive incompatible?

    • It has to do with the lubricating gear.. if bike is not running it is not lubricating. So... your technically running part of your engine dry even out of gear. I took the chain off the cm400 for good measure.. but a long trip like that could in theory hurt a bike.. shaft drives are a pain to take off too so I would have been tempted to chance it with the aero.

    • Thanks. I painted the handles black, then plasty dipped them in blue. I also thought about doing it all blue/white too. But I think the red brakes it up. Plus I couldn't bring myself to paint over a cherry 350x headlight. Check under images of Honda 200x. Or youtube. There is a video if a 200x all blue and white on there. Pretty damn sweet looking!

    • buy a fiberglass headlight shroud and paint that

    • My handlebar grips are actually biilet aluminum grips blue anodized, with chrome bullet ends on them. They are motorcycle grips but fit my handlebars perfectly.

    • So dopey question time here - if the OEM fit an automatic tensioner why not just replace with another one - what's the advantage of going with the manual version, and how do you know if you've adjusted the tension correctly ?

    • the automatic ones are un-reliable. and snap the spring

      and manul ones wont cause no slack in the chain and jump teeth.

      if you buy a kit of the internet it will come with fitting instruction and how to get the tension.

    • I found a set of pipes off of an Ace I guess, but they fit, except for the brackets in the rear. It gave it a much rounder sound if that makes sense?...lol The dual set up sounds richer than the 2 into 1 set up. I drilled a few holes to get the desired volume, and am really liking them. The bike has more mid range power, and runs better in general, and sounds better Plus, I like the look of the dual set up way better. . All around improvement.
