Clear Old Frames
|Currently have 2015 Indian Scout. This is a CGI model bought at cgtrader.com, not perfect after 3DS conversion and reassembly into POV-Ray but very good resemblence.
My Scout had a fuel-related problem (original fuel/air ratio too lean?) that was fixed by reprogramming with a Dynojet PV-CX modified "tune". Other than that it is still all stock; no custom air intake or exhaust or anything else.
|Got this 1997 Yamaha Virago XV750 in September 2011, after going without a motorcycle for 16 years and that other one was also a Yamaha... 1981 SX400 Special II purchased used at a dealership back in 1987. Before that I had yet another Yamaha from 1975, a little RS100 street bike. And the very first, a 1965 Honda S90 when I was 14 years old.
What intrigued me about this Virago, when I was shopping around for a good running used motorcycle, was its V-Twin engine integrated into the frame; virtually suspended over the ground without downtubes or cradle. Somehow I hadn't noticed those 750's and 1100's (as well as 920's, 700's and 1000's) out on the roads during my lone rides of the 1980's and 1990's. And when I stopped riding I wasn't interested in looking for them. Of course, there's a good chance I saw some but I just wasn't paying attention or making notes.
