750Doug Aftermarket engine performance parts would be freakin sweet. Who's got some extra loot and time to get the ball rolling? LOL

Duck PUT THINGS ON???!!!

I'm more of the take it off kinda guy. If it doesn't need to be on it, ( for legal, safety, or performance) it has no business being there.
But thats just my thing not neccesarily any one elses.

as for the lack of aftermarket parts, I really noticed that in the engine and driveline departments. There seems to be a bunch of dress up doodads around but nothing decent, except maybe the rad covers ( i gotta get one of those). There are a few different exhausts available, but not many.

I'll make what parts I can, and adapt others to work.

I wonder if the dressing up of all the other bikes hasn't made them all start to look alike and we still stand out???
I agree 100%, I only put something on mine that I think will more or less have a useful function...
Have a good one...Old Dog...

liljd Thats the thing with these.. you can add a few little things to it and it will look just as nice as the big boys.

dev110 I totally agree with you, there. Granted, I have only owned mine for 2 weeks now, but I am already torn on whether I should customize a litte here and there, or keep all original.

750Doug I hear ya, and I remember Olie too-LOL

My last couple bikes have been like this, and I've been thinking next time I'm ready to buy one, I'm gonna find the online gathering place, learn the common problems, then surf the web for parts and accessories before I buy the bike.

So it goes owning something unique; even though there were a whole lot of them made, still it seems a bit unique.

We just need to be a little more creative is all, which could actually open the door for more stuff, on an individual basis.

liljd well it looks like someone got over looked LOL!

You ask a question that has no real definative answer to. The 750 is really just a beginners v-twin so it's the bigger bikes that will have the most custom parts for. The 500 was for the kids to have a cruiser to ride and look cool for their friends and some were made for it. Maw Kaw did make some for ours but felt is was to mundane (I think thats the word for it) to produce alot for it. They may have felt it was a dead end to keep up.

But Hey... you've still got your imagination don't ya??????
