84 VX1000 Parts help

PostAuthor: Milk » Wed Jul 11, 2018 3:51 pm

Hey everyone, I'm new to these forums and this bike. Just got an 84 XV1000 the other day and can't wait to start fixing it up. I've been searching the internet for parts and oil and such. But I trust your guys judgement on whats best for the bike. I'm going to do a budget rebuild so whatever is the best I can get for not too much money that'd be great. I'm having a hard time finding the turn over/killswitch controls because mines busted. What oil do you recommend for the final drive and engine? Also what battery do you recommend. Thanks guys

Howdy Milk.

Welcome to VTF.

probly least expensive to find one 'salvage' or a "tested survivor" -
new XV1000 not still available OEM, but Gen-II XV1100 is adaptable (but pricey) ---> https://www.mrcycles.com/oemparts/a/yam ... itch-lever

XVS? :con: prolly adaptable

Oil? what's yer favorite?
mine: Mobile-1 synthetic

final drive: hypoid 80-90 wt. IMO synthetic.
seems most are multi-weight now... GL-4 or GL-5
