    Tire Replacement on '87 ZX750R

    My father needs new tires for his MINT '87ZX750R needless to say he is very particular about having work done on it. Can anyone recommend a reputable place to bring the bike and the new tires and wait while they are installed?

    Hi I'm Rob... And I've decided 2018 is the year I'm getting into Bikes... I got my temps last Friday and enrolled in Ohio Basic Riders Course for 3/21. I've never even ridden a moped let alone a motorcycle. I thought I wanted to get a sport bike....and then I sat on one and being a fat kid, I wasn't comfortable. I then sat on a BOLT and a Vulcan S and I really loved how the Vulcan S felt.

    Newbie Rider looking for Riding Partners

    I too just started riding and also nervous about getting on the freeway. The responses in this thread about freeway riding being safer make a great case for it.

    I also messed with the turn signal...went from Amber lense/Clear bulb to Clear lense/Amber bulb....I used stealth bulbs that appear silver and light up Amber.

    Honestly i didn’t know or think about that. But makes sense. I manly did it to clean up the look and make it a little different here are before and after pics

    Lifting the tank allows you to tuck the main wire harnes up under the tank. It also provides more airflow around the engine, and giving it that old school flavor. You can see the plastic wire cover on the box behind the bike. It hung down between the “backbone” and engine. Exhaust does not sit on the peg.

    Just a quick update here.... I passed my basic riders course and now have my endorsement. I bought a 2016 Sportster 48 with 50miles on it. So far--- I've installed V&H Short Shots, V&H FP3, 2in tank lift, coil and ignition relocation and LED headlight. The bike now has 82 miles. LOL
  9. So I think I've found a great deal... 2015 Vulcan S with 402mi.....$3500 but the guy has a loan balance. He wasn't to take my money and give me the bike and then send me the title later one. Thoughts on this transaction for protecting myself?

    I'd like to buy a Vulcan S and figure out a way to bolt on another 50hp....but it doesn't seem like that's a reality.

    Yes! I've budgeted for a pair of gloves, helmet and some riding boots/shoes for over my ankle.

    Cool I'll check those out. My budget for my first bike is $3500-$4000... I'm hoping to find something fuel injected and with under 10k miles. I've found a few Vulcan S bikes in my range...I'm just worried about it being under powered for my size 330lbs.

    A couple friends have discouraged me from the Bolt and Vulcan S due to their lack of power 60hp 41tq... A friend strongly suggested getting a Harley 1200 sportster/nightster...so I'm in the market for one. I really like customizing things... Guns/Trucks/Mustangs ETC.
