New to ME 2002 VL800 in Panama City, FL.

Postby michaeldinpc » April 8th, 2013, 10:02 am

Just picked up a DIRTY VL out of a barn for cheap, low miles, Good condition other than a few rusty bolt heads, a THICK layer of dust and leaves in EVERY nook and cranny Imaginable. It appears it was took apart so I went through it, rebuilt the carb, WD'd the shifter and a few other sticky levers and it runs good! Its a little slow compaired to my Z1000 but SO comfortable!!!

I'm still looking for a few parts that the local Suzuki Stealership doesn't have access too. Trim kit for the front fender (it has a small chip / crack where someone ran straight into something or strapped it down to tight on a trailer. Also looking for a vacuum hose that runs from petcock to the T behind it. I rigged it up with some electrical tape and some straight vacuum line I had laying around but its a sharp bend and so a 90 with the right size hose opening on the T would be nice!

Looking forward to the ride here!

Mike
