As it turns to fall/winter here in Alaska, I'll probably be riding less (yesterday's 42* F and ocean fog layer were really cold) and tinkering more.  I'm hoping to get some wisdom on ways to fancy up the 2007 Nevada I've got. My thoughts were....


*replace front plastic fender with shiny chrome     It looks like the V7 front mudguard should fit....

*replace stock timing cover with a chrome one     someone must make an aftermarket chrome timing cover....it's just screaming to be replaced.

*K&N Filters??    Liked that look on an old CB750 honda I had, are they even an option for a Nevada???


Would greatly appreciate any suggestions or wisdom from the crowd.  Thanks in advance!

if timing cover is alloy, polish it then wax it ...if plastic .... there is a process of painting it chrome no idea how good tho'
Check tyre sizes of V7 if the same the mudguard ought to fit
Not sure re small blocks but on the bigger engine to fit K&N filters on carb bike you have to upjet by 10% some FI systems alter themselves others need re mapping the breather systems on big blocks need re routing for k&n ...not sure how the small blocks deal with that either ....Apart from here the "This old tractor-moto-guzzi" has free to download manuals and brilliant advice

Thanks for the reply. MotoInternational in Seattle confirmed the V series front mudguard would work, so I'm getting ready to search for a used one.

Sounds like too much technical work to mess with switching to K&N's. bike runs great now so I'd hate to monkey that up, plus there's just a lot of plastic molding tying everything together and I'm not sure it end up even looking better.

The timing cover is a painted alloy....might mess around with that this coming winter. Long off season up here.

Thanks
