Recommended uchanges for new models

1. Include a Center stand.

2. Change the transmission gearing; 1st gear should be a stump puller, second could be lowered a little to use for normal starts; keep 3-5 the same and make 6th a taller overdrive.

3. Install a taller, better windscreen.

4. Improve the seat to provide more than 60 miles of comfort.

5. smooth out the throttle operation, a little more stiffness/resitance to reduce rapid rpm changes, especially while single tracking.

6. Install an accurate speedometer.

7. Install better more progressive front springs.

8. Install or make available power points for accessories.

9. Keep building and improving the V!!

Friends, this world is not your home, so donít make yourselves cozy in it. Donít indulge your ego at the expense of your soul. Live an exemplary life among the natives so that your actions will refute their prejudices. Then theyíll be won over to Godís side and be there to join in the celebration when He arrives.

I think it is a good time to start to revisit you well they did hit the OP's list with the 2012

I would say # 1 and # 6

#8 is the one I hope for IF this includes a bigger output of power for electrics

Make the seat on the Vee even lower.

Power hook ups would be great.

The Vee is dead guys get over it and move on with life.

Rather than suggest improvements to a dinosaur maybe it's time to contemplate life after a Vee.
