Re: Project "Saki Bob"

Looking good greedy. I like those larosa seats. I've always preferred drag bars over apes. On mine i'm just going to cut up the stock bars and make a set of my own with the help of another member on here.

Re: Project "Saki Bob"

Here is a question for you VN800 experts. I plan to keep the stock rear fender and supports for those times when my bitter half wants to go for a ride with me. Since I will have a side mounted tail light and license plate, I want to fill in and smooth the holes in the fender where those things were mounted (eg, IMB4U ). Here's where the question comes in, I've noticed some rear fenders are set up differently. Below is a pic of Zero's 98 Classic when he first got it, notice the tail light mounted higher than the plate.




Now my 98 Classic had the tail mounted right in the middle with the plate just above it? whats with that?


Any how rather than just the 3 small holes to fill like Zero did, my fender has a rather large indent right behind where the tail light mounts. I'll put up a pic of my bare fender tonight

Re: Project "Saki Bob"

Here's the new drag bars, I love the new more aggressive grip position. My throttle and clutch cables seem a bit long now though, any suggestions? Shorten or re-route?

BEFORE



AFTER

Re: Project "Saki Bob"

Nice project, do the drag bars clear the tank when turned all the way?

Re: Project "Saki Bob"

Thanks, drag bars will probably be what I'll go with next.
