  1. yeah they are stem up with the resistance accounted for different bulbs have different resistances. the lower the resistance the faster the flash. go to radio shack and get a poteintomerter. hook it up and turn the nob until you get the flash speed you like. then read that resistance and soder in a resister with the same value and you will have stock flasher speeds. but it won't affect anything by flashing faster. also check the other blikers sometimes when one goes out the other ones flash faster.
  2. i don't think it would run if the battery is completely dead. it breaks the circuit cause nothing in the battery is actually touching, and there needs to be some potential for electricity to flow. a permanent magnet alternator would not complete the circuit. it might be able to keep a running bike running, but i doubt it, cause its still only pumping 12vdc after its rectified.
  3. for sure, in my area a bunch of xs parts are worth 400 to 800. sometimes thats a parts bike sometimes thats a couple crates full of parts. i would pay 200-250 for that motor, but then again its hard to get xs650s here cause they get snatched up quick.
  4. hey dude sorry work has been crazy this last week. i'll get the bars out to you hopefully tommrow and thursday at the latest.

    cheers

  5. get the internal throttle assembly for a trail 50, and move all the switches to the electrics cover. most of the switches you don't need, (unless you use turn signals) and then all you will have are the two levers. if you go hydraluic you can run those lines in your bars. thats pretty clean.
  6. just a press in? i thought usually those are supposed to be mushroomed over so they don't slide out. i wouldn't use and oring master cause they are wider. also they will stretch more than the rest of the chain when the orings wear out, could cause some weird wear issues with the sprockets. spend the 5 bucks to get the right one, it will be worth it in the long run.
  7. sweet its a long time comming!!!! get rid of those rear turn signals, they are hideous. also i would just make a mount for that Pontiac emblem and run a headlight through it.
  8. are those the stock rear springs? i like those. like the picts too, it will be cool to see where this one goes. i remember there being a sweet one in the horse a couple years back. all i remember is that it had a white frame, and the guy drew it all in CAD before building it. anyways good luck can't wait to see how it turns out.
  9. that sissy bar needs more rake
  10. haha, yeah i like the idea but i would have chosen something besides a virago to chop. also compared to an actual vincent theres A LOT of differences. like i get where he was going, but if you took two pictures together and compared, they aren't too similar.
  11. i got cb contronls that i won't be using. if you are gonna go with the 7/8" bars let me know, and i'll get them to you for cheap. the speedo is a cable so any cable operated speedo with the same ratio should work, as for the oil and netural lights. they are electronic, so just plug the holes and take the sensors out.

  13. next time do a tech article!! i can never get enough body work articles.
  14. yeah i'd be interested to see how it turns out. i don't think that taking off the sissybar would matter unless you have a big pad that catches the wind or something. still i wouldn't think that it would matter. i'd double check the bearings in the swingarm and check to see if there is any endplay.
  15. So the biggest issue is getting the curve of the fender even, but it it definatly possible with limited tools, it will just take you a while. you can start but cutting a U shape into a piece of hadwood, like oak. the hammer away. keep hammering until all the lumps you initially hammered are smooth. thats basically how suits of armor were made back in the day.
