I posted in the new members section a while, probably around December but since then I've been hard at it with the vstar and also by adding the basics to my mission, like passing my bike test :-)
So far I have rejetted to mikuni 117.5 main jets because the previous owner had added 1.5" gutless pipes without doing a single thing to the carbs or air flow and was never running right from the start, hence why he sold it to me
While I was rejetting I thought I'd add a k&n airfilter too and complete the RAK modification from 650ccnd how to guide. Just gotta sync my carbs and adjust the valves now and job is a good un
2008 Yamaha vstar 650
Conversion progress :-
Fabricated the frame to accept a builtwell solo seat hinge
Fabricated thin pan solo seat and that is now complete and installed onto the bike.
Fabricated the rear fender to hug the rear wheel and attached to under side of the swing arm using a mig welder in 4 sections. Strong as an ox
Added 4 bullet indicators
Added a miller tail light & side mount number plate
Currently in the middle of painting the rear fender, tank & side panels
Will be adding white wall tyre paint to cut the cost of the budget bobber build , until I can afford some real white walls
Will also be adding new handlebars at some point.
UK MOT Certificate
Hoping that in 2 weeks I'll have my first road bike legal.
I'll add some pictures soon guys
Peace & ride safe
