  1. Hey Everyone. Names Nour & I Love Motorbikes.
    Ive wanted a motorbike since I was I was 14 but due to a host of reasons, couldn't get one.
    Im 21 now and have just bought myself a 2009 Yamaha XVS650. took a while but got there in the end.
    Im currently in the middle of shopping for Aftermarket parts for it .
    if anyone wants to chat or has any help, tips or tricks to offer thatd be awesome

  2. A lot of xvs650 owners joining here lately lol.

    If you haven't already, change the grips. I have the Kuryakyn ISO grips and they took a heap of vibration out of the bars. Well worth the money.

  3. haha ive noticed.
    Yea im definitely looking into doing that. my only qualm is whether I want to buy the chrome grips with black inserts or full black grips (I also want to stick the stiletto end cap on it in matching colour)
    where'd you buy yours from out of curiosity
  4. Got em cheap off someone on a facebook page who bought them but never used them.

    Mine are the chrome with black inserts.
  5. Just saw your bike. It's what mine was when new. Looks good.

  9. Yeah I like it. I can't take credit for it though, I bought it like that.
    I've only changed the rear blinkers, grips, and added crash bars.
    Don't think I've taken a pic since doing the last two.
