  1. 03 1600 Meanie handlebar riser questions

    Mean Streak Accessories
    I bought a pair of custom spacers for the stock handlebars on my 04' VZ1600 off of eBay, but it's been years and I don't see them sold anymore. They were I believe just 1.5" brushed aluminum spacers and they were perfectly as I had the same issue as a 5'8" rider. The bars were just too much of a...

  4. Drive shaft nut cover

    Mean Streak For Sale/Trade
    Well it sounds like I'm in good shape, so I went ahead and bought one! :dance: I'm a big fan of 'black & chrome'! I'll keep my eye out here for people scavenging for more deals. Thing is the Mean Streak and Marauder are 5 and 8 years out of production respectively. Those shops and dealers that...

    This site says it should be the 06-0965 for the VZ1600: Cobra Billet Driveshaft Bolt Cover - Fluted 06-0965 I wonder which one is correct?

    Now the eBay parts states it's for a VN1600 Vulcan. I'm not Kawi knowledge guy, so is that the same as a Meastreak and it still fits my VZ1600?

    Anyone know if that chrome cover from the OP fits a 04' Marauder 1600? I did a little looking, but could not tell.

  11. Gas mileage stinks... I think

    General Mean Streak
    Yes you are right about the GPS. What I should have said is very few probably have the mount and GPS configured on their bike to try this. If the offset for the trip odometer that comes stock on the bike is 20+ mpg then there is some serious issue with the calibration for the wheel circumference...
  12. Electrical Junction Box without Fuses

    General Mean Streak
    I may have found my own answer. These Beaver Power setups seem to be exactly what I need. They do have fuses, but I could just match the fuse value to the accessory and there might be 2 inline instead of just 1. 3 Circuit Still please feel free to post any other suggestions.

    General Mean Streak
    It's all relative in that case. So as long as everyone uses the same method, then its comparing apples to apples. I doubt but very few have a GPS configured to do this.
  14. Electrical Junction Box without Fuses

    General Mean Streak
    OK so I need some help here with a simple electrical question. On my bike I will eventually have (3) additional accessories needing power and ground: Alarm LEDs Battery Tender The problem is having 1 addtl. is not a big deal because you can slip the extra connections directly on the battery...
  15. Gas mileage stinks... I think

    General Mean Streak
    How are you calculating gas mileage? With the light coming on at typically in a similar range for most (115-125) and a 4.5 gallon tank, there is a huge discrepancy between 50+ mpg and 30ish mpg. From a full tank, reset the odometer. On next fill up, write down the odometer trip mileage and it's...
  16. Gas mileage stinks... I think

    General Mean Streak
    After replacing the plugs and filters and riding about the same I got like 32-33mpg on the last tank which is up a bit. I typically shift in the 2500-2700 range I was watching so it shows on normal riding I am not pushing it all that hard.
  17. Is the Marauder and Mean Streak Radiator the same?

    General Mean Streak
    Funny you mention this. I have a Scorpio alarm I need to install and need to splice into the front and rear turn signal wires on the VZ1600. Remember the color by chance?
  18. Is the Marauder and Mean Streak Radiator the same?

    General Mean Streak
    Is the Marauder 1600 and Mean Streak Radiator the same? I was looking at some chrome dudads for the 1500 and 1600 Mean Streak and I wondered if they fit. It looks to me as if they are the identical part and this was not some Suzuki specific part.
  19. Gas mileage stinks... I think

    General Mean Streak
    No, no Power Commander and last owner told me he never did any mapping. One interesting thing though, I just replaced the stock air filter with a K&N. The stock filter must have been the original and it's yellow seal was falling apart. The filter was a bit clogged with remnants of the seal and...
  20. Gas mileage stinks... I think

    General Mean Streak
    I finally got the bike out riding 2-up for a 150 mile trip last Friday. I got 42mpg and the light came on around mile 116. You know I can't get to greedy here. Yes it is a motorcycle, but it is 1600cc. My 250cc got 75mpg, my 800cc got 42mpg, my 1600cc gets 30mpg. I see the pattern here. Bigger...
