Even though I am on the other side down under I bet you could turn up some great items with that.

Show us what that big boy can do !

I guess it depends how you use your bike, here in Oz our road surfaces are rough as compared to most ...

Re: Cutting out on long sweeping left bends

I had a similar problem that developed over time.

Replaced the diaphragm in the fuel tap ( It had a split in it ) and the problem was gone !

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...

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 !

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.

Re: Tank slapper

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