I don't think those tints are very dark so you should be ok. Why don't you PM CrystalPistol and ask him if he knows. He is familiar with the laws in VA.
Thanks for the advice, I also PM'd Crystal.

Re: fuel, ignition or worse peoblem?

Easy enough to rule out fuel. Pull the fuel line off the filter exit side and use a jumper wire from battery to the fuel pump postive point. That will make the pump run, point it into a bucket lol. If you search there is also a way to measure output volume with a measuring cup to make sure pump is n...

About 45psi in the rear shocks, set while on the centerstand, seems to be what most of us are using.

Mine stays this way at all times.

Another "my radio is dying" thread

So my radio is dying. Right after I bought new front speakers, moved the old partly blown fronts to the rear, and added the fader wiring harness for the rear. My radio mutes itself randomly, on fm which is all I use. It is not the handle bar mounted switch. If I tap, and beat hard on the main unit i...

Because there's no "adjustments" for the clutch lever...if the operation seems off..do check the clutch lever pivot pin.That little part that pushes the master cylinder piston in...Seems I recall that's it's a common wear part.Either the pin outer shell is worn,the lever is worn or the contact divo...

Re: Questions about our clutch, is mine working right?

When I squeeze it, and let it out, it starts to grab about 3/4 of the way out and does not fully engage until about 90% released. Ya know...this sounds a bit far.. My88 is quite different. Mine starts to grab a bit less than half way and fully engaged at 3/4... Your pressure return port on the clut...

Check the "Clutch Lever Adjustment" section of the Owner's Manual also, to ensure you have the clutch lever travel set the way you want. It's on page 139 in my copy.
That is interesting thank you.

I will look into this for more details.

Thank you.

Re: Questions about our clutch, is mine working right?

I bought a vacuum pump at Harbor Freight for $20 and it works good for bleeding clutch and brakes. When I got my bike the PO just put brakes on it and the foot pedal had too much travel. Used the vacuum pump on it and it’s solid and high. Flushed both brake systems and the clutch in an afternoon. D...

Re: Question about our clutch

If it just started acting different, you need to be sure the slave cylinder is not leaking. If it’s leaking, it goes into the engine and will contaminate your oil and if the engine is run too long, it will get to the bearings which is not good. Dave Thanks Rockport, It has not changed behavior sinc...

Re: Question about our clutch

It reads as if it's normal. Is it consistant and does it feel same after holding in for a minute or two? I know you are just guess-timating travel, etc. If in doubt , it's fairly easy to bleed using squeeze & hold method with one left hand, and opening / shutting bleeder with right. Check level eve...

I don't know but I doubt it or there would be information on this site about how to do it lol.

I do know the stock mufflers are stupid expensive.

Mine look like crap but that's one part I'm not replacing until they are rotting off lol.
