    Hi all, I use a LED headlight since nearly two years. It is definately better than any H4 bulb. I've installed a complete headlight insert - what needs the headlight housing to be modified. Some photos you can find here...

    Heya Alan, as you have seen from past threads, this forum had a tight small community of Voggers. Craig used to participate quite a bit before his accident, he really brought some magic, being the man himself. We also had some key...

    I've ran an automotive bulb in my XS650 for 10 years and haven't had any issues. I considered another one for my Vetter but figured I'd look into a true motorcycle lens for comparison.

    The LED bulbs for H4 filament type bulb replacement don't produce the correct light pattern. It's like putting a square plug in a round hole. They fit the hole on the bulb housing but stick out the back a lot more due to the required...

    I replaced all the locks on my Vetter gear on my bike. Some had already been drilled out and none of the others had Key's so I had to drill those out myself. All my locks on the Vetter gear is keyed alike as a result. I still get nice...

    With that info in the manual you can get a new lock to fit in Tractor Supply. It's located in the hardware isle. If I remember correctly it's for 1/2 inch thick wood drawer facing. That 1/2 inch denotes how thick the wood is but...

    I've got two. Suzuki GS750 and a GS550, both 1978. The 750 I have had for about 20 years. The 550 I just finished rebuilding. Other than not pulling the engine apart, I took the bike down to every nut, bolt, and screw and...
