Budget Bobber Build #34

Unleash extra throttle response, acceleration and performance in a Virago XV 250 for FREE. Its worth it! 😈
The bike revs harder, revs up quicker, decels quicker and accelerates quicker! The downer it needs to be reved slightly harder to get off the line!

Sorry for the long video! In this episode we remove and drill the carb slide and clip the carb slide spring on Gilby the Yamaha XV250, Virago 250, V-star 250 or Route 66.

You may have to re-jet or re-tune to run richer due to more air flow. Be slow and meticulous and its on you. If your bike doesn’t get the same results its not my fault. Do this modification at your own risk!

In this episode we install an eBay or aliexpress flyscreen windshield or wind screen on Gilby the Yamaha XV250, Virago 250, V-star 250 or Route 66. I have applied patina or fauxtina to the plastic by painting several layers of paint then sanding randomly through them.

In this episode gut the exhaust or drill out the baffles on Gilby the Yamaha XV250, Virago 250, V-star 250 or Route 66. To give it a much deeper rumble. We also make and install some lollipops to create a little back pressure to help it run!

In this episode we install adjustable brake and clutch levers from ebay on Gilby the Yamaha XV250, Virago 250, V-star 250 or Route 66.

These are excellent levers! I am very happy with the quality, price, ease of install, adjustability and function. I can reccomend them highly for your xv250 bobber build. They come in about 12 different colours so take your pick!

In this episode we make a DIY Seal Mate or fork seal cleaner and clean the fork seals on Gilby the Yamaha XV250, Virago 250, V-star 250 or Route 66 for free. Instead of replacing them, using a piece cut from a milk carton or juice bottle. This technique can be used for cleaning any motorcycle fork seal.
