my mods

I have a 04 vn750 that has about 8000 miles on it. Decided this winter to do some changes to it. Modified the air boxes by cutting bigger openings then mess screening the cover and added KN filters. I've put stage 3 factory pro jets in and bought new mufflers made for an 85 KZ750 with removable baffles. Also have a seat from a vn900 on its way. I put a link here for pictures and there's a short video of the sound.

Thanks, just some cutting and 3 bucks for the mesh. I did all this to the bike last week and the weather is so low (15 and below) now I can not even take it for a test run. Probably have to wait nearly 3 months till its warm enough.

Looks nice. Just a thought though...since you cut a big hole in the air filter housing you might need to adjust your carbs. Those are going to let in way more air than stock.

I installed factory pro jets stage 3 to accommodate more air flow coming in the intake and going out of the exhaust. When it's warm enough outside I'll be able to make the fine tuning adjustments.

First time for me using drag bars. I figured it would b similar to riding a quad or dirtbike. A little bit leaning forward is fine for me. Gives a little space between the passenger and myself. Hopefully no more helmet banging from riding over bumps. Fingers crossed.

I still need to make a proper bracket for the seat I got and remove the back rest and maybe slide it back further. And I have two spark plugs that have never been removed because they are stuck. Socket can't get around the nut on the plug because it would seem the previous owner tightened them so much and so far down the hole, also I think they aren't the correct plugs but it's only an aassumption. Little things, oh little things, why do you show up on everything.

you need a thin wall 18mm? socket. Craftsman makes one that will fit down in the tube and over the plug. Several people on here know the number # for the socket.
