    XB12Scg about to getweir'd project thread

    Hey all,

    Intro: My name is Aaron. I work at Vibrant Performance and love all things grass roots DIY, especially fabrication. This is going to be a thread for my 2008 XB12scg and all the projects/upgrades, experiments I build for it. (Previously owned a 2004 XB9S) I enjoy sharing my experience with the community of which I am an enthusiast of. I also openly welcome and am grateful for other member's experience, expertise and opinion.

    Bought in 2020 from the original owner:

    First summer upgrades: K&N filter, lighting upgrades from LightningLED and some bar end mirrors. Was focused on enjoying riding with my girlfriend:

    THAT explains it! I was wondering how TIG welding bungs and AN fittings was easy for you, lol. I got a lot of stuff from Vibrant in the last couple years for the Buggy

    Try re-uploading the links.
    I've found adding pics through the uploader on this site too fast breaks the links for some reason. Better to paste the {IMG} link from a hosting site like Flikr.

    Its too late now, but a better way would have been to pick up some later model Sportster valve covers and modify them. They are just blank over that spot as they still breathe through the carb/TB mounting bolts. The XB ones are a bit harder to come across and some people like to replace the stock setup on their earlier bikes (or Sportster) with these valve covers to use the XB "turret" PCV valves.

    Oh well....

    And all along I thought you were just into small dams and affecting river levels and flow rates. Who knew?



    weir

    noun
    a low dam built across a river to raise the level of water upstream or regulate its flow
