Thanks caveman, with the weather warming up, and the virago stuck in the basement until the yard stops being a swamp, i can't wait for the new bike! Ive done riding on a frieds 98 marauder, and loved the bike, beats both the '82 virago 750 and the '86 virago 920 both in styling, feel and comfort, and man is the marauder light too!
I think i might look into some spacers to raise the bars, have to see. I've also seen a lot of people pull off the pair valve between the cylinders. This might seem like a dumb question, i have heard of people putting on a 16 or 17 tooth sprocket, but how, would that lower the rpm you want, when it is bigger, as far as i know the smaller the sprocket the less the engine speed, for example think of a bicycle, you go to the small sprockets, (high gears) and your legs do less rpm... ? so a 17 tooth spocket will actually make the engine work at a lower rpm in 5th, cruising, than a 15 tooth?? im mystified...
thanks a lot, can;t wait to get the new bike in, oh and plus the just painted side covers look good i think, better than chromed plastic trying to pass itself off as steel.
