I like your site very much. I found it almost by chance and was interested because in 1981 I traded in my Honda CX500 for a brand new TR1! This was because I wanted something more suitable for continental touring. I fitted it out with a nose fairing/screen, Krauser panniers and a massive top-box. Fully laden it still handled impeccably. We travelled extensively in the UK, France and Northern Spain. The bike never let me down and was always fun to ride. I only got rid of it when my first son was born. I sold the TR1 and bought a much cheaper, second hand BMW R80GS. I have fond memories of the TR1. Promotional pictures of it still adorn the wall of my dining room 23 years later! I will try to dig out some photographs for you if you are interested. Keep up the good work and best wishes to all of you who like TR1s...I thought I was the only one left!!!

Misfires on deceleration under 3000rpm so if anyone has any ideas on what that could, be, i'd be more than interested! Lovely sounding machine. Really looking forward to many years of fun.

Hello, Hey dor, guten tag, fello tr1 enthusiasts. If only I'd known of this site a few years back when I and my bike were in Europe. She and I did London traffic for two years and visited Amsterdam, Hamburg,Copenhagen, Prague, Stockholm, Berlin,Amsterdam, Paris, down the rhine, Amsterdam etc. She finally did a big end on the freeway to oxford but I bought her back to Australia in a box and she is back. I will look forward to getting tech info as I have a set of near new cases and would like to put together a "hot" motor. CHEERS FROM OZ

Having owned eveything from Hondas to Harleys I purchased a TR1 from it's third owner to be my everyday transport,after six months I find it the most easy to live with machine I've ever had. Just recently I brought another TR1 complete but partly disassembled so I'll have plenty of parts to recondition and keep me going for years. Your site has been an excellent source of information and advice to help keep these unique bikes on the road.

I found this site after deciding to try and find another XV1000 after a 20 year separation. I use to own a 1981 silver XV1000 and had fitted supertrapp mufflers to upset the neighbours and also to enjoy the music especially while riding through valleys where you could really smile. This web site was a bit of a surprise as XVs never were very popular in NZ and I thought I was the only sick puppy to be into them. Haray for this site and all you fellow XV/TR1 lovers. Cheers from NZ and pray for another XV to be found by me.

I wolud be interested in hearing from other owners about this bike, especially any maintenance tips, etc. I rode my first XV920R in 1982 and remembered how well it fit me, so I decided to try and find one several years ago and when I gotone it still really fit me and I alternate it with my Virage 1100 depending on how comfortable I want to be on the Alaskan highways.

TR1 in Mexiko hassen und lieben gelernt oder wie lange kann man eine TR1 anschieben?
bin in den späten 80ern mit einer amerikanischen TR1 die highway1 von frisco bis acapulco gefahren. werd euch bei gelegenheit bilder schicken, falls ihr für sowas eine rubrik habt. die TR1 hab ich damals in elpaso in topzustand für 1000 dollar (war dort nicht die gefragteste maschine) gekauft und bin sie in mexicocuidad fürn selben preis wieder los geworden (defekt und runtergeritten, wg. der luxussteuer aber ein schnäpchen für den käufer). die maschine ist durchs death valey ohne schaden und in ixtapa völlig vom fluß überspült worden, und lief und lief und lief. allerdings der anlasser war früh nach der mexikanischen grenze im arsch, mechanisch und elektrisch. ich glaube du und deine freunde wissen, was es heißt täglich mehrmals eine TR1 anzuschieben. hab wärend der 3 monate die maschine lieben und hassen gelernt; trotzdem für einen solchen trip sicherlich eine geeignete maschine; ich kam durch; wollten eigentlich bis jucatan, aber zeit und maschine waren wie gesagt verbraucht. herzliche grüsse und lob für page vom ferdo aus schwarzwald

I bought my V-twin in 2001 and have put about 5000 miles on it. I had to sort out the brakes, gas tank and carbs. I had the front exhaust pipe re-chromed and had Sargeant rebuild the original seat. Other that that it is as it came from the show room, with some normal wear and tear. I have a couple of other bikes, but I like to ride this one most of the time, as it's a lot of fun. Does anyone know of a similar owners club for XV920 non-Viragos? -LarryR

Hallo . Tolle Homepage. Habe vor 4 Wochen eine total zerlegte XV 920 erstanden. 54000 Meilen. Einziger Defekt am Motor, Kette von der Ölpumpe defekt. Sie schnurrt schon wieder wie ein Kätzchen. Suche allerdings noch einen rechten Seitendeckel. wer sowas noch besitzt kann sich ja mal melden. Aber das mich nochmal nach 15 Jahren der Mopedvirus befallen, würde hätte ich niemals mehr gedacht. Ist eben ein geiles Motorrad. gruss an alle Biker

I have 1982 Virago XV920 bike, still in excellent shape but had a compression problem so I'm in the process of rebuilding to top half of the engine. Yamaha has most of the parts but does not sell the piston rings anymore. It’s been such a excellent bike and because it’s been garage keep with low mileage I want to keep it going. Thanks Rick

Hallo, die Seite gefällt mir. Vieleicht schaffe ich es dieses Jahr mal zum Treffen zu kommen. Problem ist nur der Vergaser will nicht so wie ich will, sprich ich brauch Ersatz! Kann mir da jemand günstig was anbieten? Ach ja, da war noch was unglaublich aber wahr, meine TR1 hat erst 6800km drauf. Nach einem kleinen Unfall war sie über 15 Jahre in der Garage gastanden. Jetzt läuft sie wieder, aber wie gesagt der Vergaser macht nicht gut mit. Bis bald!

Mit Wehmut seh ich mir diese Seite an.... Seit einem Unfall meines Bruders mit unserer TR1 im Jahre 1986, habe ich mich nicht mehr dazu entschlossen ein Motorrad zu kaufen. Anfänglich hatte ich mir noch hin und wieder mal eine ausgeliehen, aber mit der Familie wurde es hierbei in den letzten Jahren ruhiger. Ich finde es toll das ich diese Seite entdeckt habe, so kann ich doch wieder mal von den "alten Zeiten" schwärmen und träumen. Und mir "mein" Moped nochmal angucken.

Hallo, die Seite ist schon Kult. Ich war damals 2 x bei den Treffen in Schotten, aber das geht wohl nicht mehr. Schade war günstig für alle hinzukommen. Ich suche eine Auspuffanlage für meine Gute. Vielleicht weiß ja jemand, wo eine rumliegt oder wo man günstig was bekommt.
