I know I seen someone else post this but now I cant find it, but I was wondering how much is involved in changing a VN800B into a VN800A?? Is it just the fenders, taillight, and forks or am i missing more?? Just curious. Thanks.
Yes the A model has two degrees more rake than the B model, according to the specifications. Comparing them side by side you see that the A model leans more backward, probably because of the bigger front wheel. I don't know if the extra rake comes from this fact, or if the frames are actually different.
Most of it has already been mentioned, but if you want an 100% authentic VN800B:
Front wheel + wheel axle
Fenders (front + rear)
Lights (front + tail)
Fork (well some of the parts here are the same)
I think they have different sprockets?
I think that's it?
But hey you don't have to change *everything*
I've read somewhere that the engine on the A model is set to be quicker than the B model, but that might just be because of the different sprocket ratios? Seem to be identical in the spec though as far as I can see?
thanks for all the info. yea buyin an A would be much simpler but they are alot harder to find, so i was just basically weighin my options. plus all the non kawasaki people i could tell em i started with this and ended with this and look like a professional bike builder lol.
