Cool Hi all

I've been following and soaking up great tips from everyone. I sold my Shadow 600 and bought aVN750. What a difference in power, the shaft drive is so different on takeoff. I love it. Thanks, Knifemaker. You have great pics of projects! I made a light bar that turned out awesome. Found wiring and switch from site in Japan. I will post pics and site later. Please don't stop your posts. I'll keep following here in St Louis.

Welcome to all the fun. I am new here too, and taken full advantage of the knowledge here. Check them Splines, I did mine a couple days ago and was a little disappointed in what I found. Not all was lost though, not by far. I would say now that I know whats down there and I know the bike will be taken care of personally, I would say I still have many years with this one left before I have to replace the splines and shaft. Anyway, have fun and be safe.
