Re: Greetings from St. Petersburg, Russia

I have had over 40 bikes and the VTR is truely a great bike. The beauty of them is that you can ride and mod at the same time. Every mod provides a measurable improvement. Not all good I'm afraid however, You can always put it back to how it was . Unlike other bikes the VTR handles changes at all le...

Re: a bit of spondoness.

Find a suitable rear wheel and get that swinger back in.

Your bike is pure porn and deserves the spondon touch.

There must be loads of rear wheels out there that will fit, just need to find one and as Barry White said "Get it on" :thumbup:

Re: Fork brace wanted. For standard VTR forksCoerce

coerce is the go !

Had one for years before I went USD.

Worked well and stopped the forks from flexing under hard brakes.

Well worth the money.

Re: new to 4 stroke v twins heeelllooooo

Welcome and enjoy the ride.

These engines perform best between 3500 - 7000 Rpm. Don't lug the engine as it can cause premature wear to the crank.

Get rid of the preload on the back shock if you have a shim fitted.

Re: Popped my v twin cherry !!!!

Since I fitted my full race system I sometimes get that. I did a full sync and idle drop and still occasionally I get a loud backfire.

I am thinking that I may have worn emulsion tubes ?

I can put up with it as the bike performs flawlessly otherwise. :thumbup:

Re: What's up with the bike? - take two

In the video at the start as you give the bike a few revs it appears that your throttle housing is rotating on the clip on ! Is the housing loose ? Tighten it up and stop it rotating as this causes the cables to work against each other . Also check that the cables are locked in place at the carbs. A...

Re: Hi all

Welcome to the forum,

When you look at the bike again check the rear suspension for any squeaky noises by sitting on it and bouncing up and down on the seat.

The rear suspension bearings are an often overlooked maintenance item and if run dry can be expensive to replace.

Good luck :wave:

Re: Happy Hatch Day Big Jim

Hey Jim,

Get out there and throw a leg over the VTR.

When you've done that have a couple of drinks .

That's what I did on my last birthday !

Have a great day. :thumbup:
