Changed the paint scheme now, managed to get my compressor, spray gun and airbrush working so let me know your thoughts. The colours are metallic and a bit more subtle.

Default S&S Air filter

I've had a question about how the air filter is mounted.

I bought this and just modified it as I don't think they make them for the VN? I removed the original and all the airbox etc from above to fit the new tank. The S&S didn't fit directly but was a very easy fix.

I pressed it up against the original rubber seal on the carb, marked where the original filter fixed and drilled for fixings.



it pulled in flush to the motor without touching anywhere which was perfect.

Default S&S Filter

I made some spacers to level the filter up and ensure it had the right pressure on the rubber seal so it wouldn't pull any air in and also covered any additional holes on the filter body for the same reason.

I then fitted the filter element and put the housing on, I think this makes a real difference to the style of the bike, I didn't like the big round filter. Plus now people really have no idea what this bike is anymore!

Exclamation Seat

Hi.

It's a really cool project you made with your VN800, I also have one and Im crazy what you made with your seat !!

I know it's been a while since you made it on your bike, but it's possible you still have dimension of the plate you made that covers the battery?

Can you take a picture of where you have placed the relay which is also located under the seat?

Sorry for my bad english but I'm from Denmark

you are a great inspiration for my bobber project...

Hi Romeo,

Thank you for your comments:

I don't have the dimensions for the battery cover, but I just used a cardboard cut out then fabricated the part. The picture below (not very good sorry) shows the lip I cut to allow the battery terminals to stick out, as I wanted the cover to be as close to the frame as possible.



I'm using a shorter battery now so this can be flush with the frame and no cutout required.

I don't have a photo of the side panels, but that's what I did with the CDI and Fuse box, all electrics are hidden each side including the coils. Hope this helps.

Thanks for your answer :-)

It was smart with a smaller battery, it makes no trouble starting?

Do you remember what brand and model it is, I will also have it flush with the frame and no cutout required, it is much nicer, hope you can help me with model and part number of the battery.

Here is a picture of my VN800 :

Romeo, nice looking bike. Great apes too, I'm working on a Harley Project now so My VN will be for Sale now.

As for the battery it was off my 2005 CBR1000RR Fireblade, so I don't know the model number but if you search for that it will help you?

Cool, i will look forward to see it when you post a pic of it :-)

If you have an extra front wheel in 19 "or 21" or want to sell what you have on your bike, so I am very interested in it, know you probably would rather sell it to your bike, but I could be lucky :-)

I'll be selling mine as it is, the Harley has Fat Boy solid wheels on at the moment. In time I will replace them with wire wheels, I much prefer spokes.

Good luck with the rest of your build and feel free to ask anything you want

Very very nice! Personally I preferred the black n white paint to the red, but that's just me.

Thank you both for your comments, I liked the black and white too, it was bold and stood out. I think I changed it just to change the bike as I was getting bored. But both look good I think.

Its on swaps forsale now and I think I will be advertising it on here soon too. Need the money for my wedding and I can't keep this and the Harley project. So unfortunately this one has to go
