It’s time to go back to my channel’s roots and re-introduce the audience to my Yamaha 1100 Drag Star Class bobber conversion.
Join me as I somewhat re-restore my KITT. Over the winter of 2020 / 2021 I gathered a few parts I knew I’d have to replace at some point in the future. When I recently discovered a few oil and coolant leaks, I thought I might as well do everyhting in one go. I was shocked at how many original parts I still hadn’t changed on this car: springs, transmission mount, power steering mount, steering rack, water pump, power steering pump, the spark control module as well as a number of other parts I changed off camera (see below for parts list).
Here’s a quick unboxing video of the ideegeniali 1st / 2nd season KITT dashboard electronics I will be putting together for a friend of mine’s KITT dashboard. That’s right, this one is not for my KITT, but I shall still document the process. Stay tuned for the next steps!
This is a very short introduction of my KITT project, which original intention was to be included in the Planet KITT replica project. Check out the series of videos I’ve made on my KITT Firebird Trans Am in my video library.
Hier präsentiere ich euch meine Yamaha XVS 1100 Drag Star Classic mit Bobber-Umbau, Modelljahr 2000. Nach 6 einhalb Jahren und knapp 9’000 km ist es Zeit Ade zu sagen und sie zu verkaufen.
Ich habe dieses Motorrad 2014 im Originalzustand gekauft und sogleich zum Bobber umgebaut. Der Bobber Bausatz ist von Blue Collar Bobbers, USA. Des Weiteren sind Lenker, Riser, Griffe, sowie die Blinker & Rückleuchten umgebaut.
Alles ist eingetragen und hat am 15. März 2021 die Motorfahrzeugkontrolle bestanden.
Here I present you my Yamaha XVS 1100 Drag Star Classic with a bobber conversion, model year 2000. After 6 and a half years and almost 9,000 km it is time to say goodbye and sell it.
I bought this motorcycle in its original condition in 2014 and immediately converted it into a bobber. The Bobber kit is from Blue Collar Bobbers, USA. Furthermore, the handlebars, risers, grips, as well as the indicators and taillights have been changed as well.
Everything is registered and passed the motor vehicle inspection on March 15, 2021.
In this video I’m showing how to install new turn signal return springs on my 1990 Pontiac Firebird. This applies to many GM cars from the 70’s to early 90’s. Earlier models obviously won’t have airbags, therefore will needs less work to swap out.
In this video I’m showing how to install hush panels courtesy lights on third generation F-Bodies Firebird or Camaro. It’s a fairly simple upgrade that really adds a touch of luxury to the interior.
In this video I’m showing you how I used my Firebird’s steering wheel cover to wrap and stitch its leather onto the steering wheel.
