YAMAHA VIRAGO XV250 BOBBER PROJECT

PIED PIPER

Well, lucky, lucky me.

I found some used drag pipes in the country, for very cheap.

Before:

I removed the stock exhaust.

Ready to wrap the pipes (wear gloves! I didn’t – sore hands).

The pipes all wrapped up.

I installed the new exhausts.

After:

Here is a video comparing the stock exhaust with the drag pipes.

SHOCKING STUFF

I ordered these Honda Rebel CMX250 Rear Shocks from ebay.

These ones are 10.5″ eye to eye, compared to the stock ones which are 12″.

Why not hardtail struts? Because my back is farked. I just can’t hack it.

They were easy as pie to install.

I just had to pop out the little eyelet shim on the new ones.

Dropped the ride height, and made for a much stiffer ride.

CRUISIN

We got out for a ride, now the CG is running again.

BOBBED

I bobbed the rear fender.

It was a simple affair, marked the line with masking tape, and took the angle grinder to it.

All done.

I remounted the turn signals right back.

SPEEDY

Haha I got a speed camera ticket, the first weekend I had my bike. FTP.
