I'm only a half ass parts replacer but this would be a good place to startI am in the "setting the carbs" mode now with my "new to me XS650". Please point me to the Tech Section thread that will give me the best guidance.
Risers; kinda, the lower bolts are just a tich short, (not enough room for the little hairpin safety) a bit of locktite prolly enough but I got all fancy with some coupling nuts on the lathe for a bomber set up. I think any year 250-500-750 mebbie 920-1100? that uses 7/8 bars are the same. You can use partzilla to do an interchange check. (a very useful tool to learn)I like the risers, are they direct bolt on? I see some on E Bay for $18-$40 or so. Any year that doesn;t fit? V Star mirrors? Do the work well? What I mean is do you get a rear view or an arm view?
Your Victory seems like such a great bike, you absolutely nailed the sound capture with that microphone set up
I threw it up on the big screen with the sound system. It looks good, sounds great!
I happened to notice either a deer or an antelope ( do you have those there? ) running away from you in the first video.
Great ride down Main St, 2M. It's longer than I thought and some big truck traffic as well.
I revved the engine at 5K RPM and started climbing up. At 5500 RPM something awesome happened; Buzzy came alive unlike he has since I've been riding him. I felt a solid surge in power and as I hit 6K RPM, he was pulling really well and it felt great.
