Thanks for having me. I am from Long Island, NY. I started riding last year, learned from a Yamaha dirt bike and I bought a 2011 V Star 950. Very reliable and nice looking bike. I did a few mods on it. If anyone is from LI and looking to ride, let me know.
Welcome to the forum eh. Nice short intro and pic . Your about to be befriended by one of our members. He's going to say that your his newest BFF because of some history of the world thing . Another might ask you about hotdogs or burgers, another is fancy about bike colours and airbrushing and still another likes to do wheelies .
Its a kuryakyn Velociraptor Intake from a Harley and a custom metal adaptor and mount was made as per the "walkthrough" on 650ccnd.com. if you have questions about it please contact me as there are definitely some tuning/rideability considerations to be made when going for this style of intake on a 650.
