    XV920R - Fat and Low

    Been a while since I allowed some interneting time. I’ve actually posted the bike on Craigslist, but I imagine it will take a while to find the right buyer (everyone seems to like black or red bikes around here) I just don’t ride as much as I would like, and I really would enjoy putting some...

    XV920R - Fat and Low

    Winter is coming tomorrow and I needed an excuse to keep a nice charge on the battery. Also, anyone have any particular battery chargers/tenders they like specifically for li-ion?

    It’s from cognito moto. Wonderfully well machined piece. I went with their 1 1/8” bar clamps as well if you are looking for real bars and not clip ons.

    She definitely can take a turn or two.

    Thanks - it rides fantastic. Torquey, really tight feeling, and surprisingly flickable.

    XV920R - Fat and Low

    After mounting everything, I went with 17/36. There isn't quite enough clearance for the 34 in the rear. I already shaved the swingarm enclosed drive mount tabs and the front sprocket housing, and while the chain could fit, any deflection would put it into the case and the swingarm. 17/36 is...

    All that said - build it however the hell you want to.

    From what I remember about two bros, that is going to be loud. I prefer the 920 engine with a bit of muffling as when it's too open, you lose all of its very limited musical quality and it try's too hard to imitate a Harley without the lumpy character. I also think you have a great opportunity...

    Is that a weathered garage door? Hot damn, I better park my recently completed bike next to it and take a picture immediately.

    The panels are looking great. I was curious to see where you were going with that skeleton. Some bead rolling to match the tank could be interesting. From putting a few miles on mine now I find what really woke this motor up is losing nearly 100lbs off the bike. I really like a low end motor...

    This is also one of my favorite garages built by a friend. In a corporate development you take a back alley between a pizza place and an office building, go through the service alley and there is this hidden driveway. Three double doors lead to a full bathroom/shower and kitchen/coffee bar and a...

    It had a bit of a stumble on heavy acceleration last night. New AP63's gapped at 0.028 and eliminated all vacuum lines to the mixture controller. Still some very slight hesitation, but it's almost all gone. Also a couple of the other pictures from last night.

    I hope this one didn't fade into obscurity. I have been liking where it's going.

    Absolutely fantastic. The interior work you have done and the amount of light coming in is what does it for me.

    It's raining. I have a freshly completed Virago cafe bike. Let's ride! (Said no one ever...)

    XV920R - Fat and Low

    Took 'er around the block and filled up the tank. I'll probably back out the preload on the rear and still have a few finishing touches, but oh man... that is a satisfying feeling. Doesn't feel fat in the slightest anymore. And... there has been considerable effort in making it not low (like...

    Removed some paint on the rear wheel to match the front. I think I made the right choice over all black. Chain rivet tool arrives today so should be rideable tonight...

    XV920R - Fat and Low

    I had picked up a set of cobalt drill bits - found a kit of 6mm - 1.5mm on amazon or something. They actually don't show really any wear after, and I had to use multiple steps. The first hole the machinist tried and broke a bit so I had a pilot to start and that one cut through fairly easily...
