Re: XV 1100 Bobber Project : QLD

Yeah tried that dude. The risers have too much of a sweep. Doesn't look right. I'm going to give different risers and bars a go. Will suit it to a tee! :D

Re: XV 1100 Bobber Project : QLD

I suppose I better do a bit of an update.. Painted the heads black. Slipped these tapered turbo mufflers on. Ran like crap, (unequal pipe lengths). Don't really like the look of them either. Whilst idling it had a bit of a "Poop" noise every 3 secs. (bars are not mounted, waiting for risers to arriv...

Re: XV 1100 Bobber Project : QLD

Go for it! You can make anything look the way you want if you can visualize how it "can" look from stock form.. But not all people do that. They just see whats in front of them and think.... Erghh, That's ugly.. etc. I'm pretty sure I'm going to get "What model/bike is that??" question.. I got the V...

Re: XV 1100 Bobber Project : QLD

After staring at it for a while... I decided to scrap the springs on the seat.. With some imagination.. I made it work. Made up a rolled pan that follows the frame rails with mounting brackets for the seat. Covers all the fuses between the frame rails. And also uses the old mount points from the sto...

Re: XV 1100 Bobber Project : QLD

Built some pipes. Rear cylinder pipe exits on the right now, rear pipe also has a baffle inserted to up the back pressure due to the front pipe being longer.

All wrapped up!

Re: XV 1100 Bobber Project : QLD

Rear fender done... Glad that part is over. I've never done one before. It turned out pretty damn good. 6mm round bar for ribs, I also cut little slots every 60mm for cable ties to slip under for tail light/indicator wiring. http://i1084.photobucket.com/albums/j410/St_Kleaver/Bobber%20Project%20%20Y...

Re: XV 1100 Bobber Project : QLD

Bit of busy day yesterday. That stock rear guard is all sorts of different now. All the holes shaved up. The old mounting dents/mould were cut out and new pieces welded in. Wheel arch re cut. All smoothed over. I kept 2, 8mm threaded holes there right at the base. Then welded some brackets to the sw...

Re: XV 1100 Bobber Project : QLD

Cheers Prof. I've decided to run with the stock tank for now, I've got a few things in mind. But yes if I were to do it, I'd cut it out and run a 1inch cross member top and bottom. Maybe get lazer cut gusset to run in between the two. I've got to get it somewhat ridable soon. Its going to be my dail...

Re: XV 1100 Bobber Project : QLD

Is it just me or is this one of the few bikes where you can raise the top mount of the rear shock (i.e. have a more vertical shock) to lower the rear? What a bonus to be able to improve the action of a shock & gain an appearance advantge! Sounds like a distinct advantage for the roads you've descri...

Re: XV 1100 Bobber Project : QLD

Lowering makes a big difference... If I am redoing rear suspension mounts I set them up for HD shockers as you can get them in 3 different lengths and they will always be available... I use sportyones for the lighter jap bikes. ... but how about the fornt end... heres' Dylan's with 5" stretch and 6...
