I know I know... virago is a bad word around the chopper guys but its what i got and its what im going to work with. I really want to make this thing simple and easy to work on.

I have some big plans if you guys are interested... i kind of got a sour taste in my mouth about posting about my bike because everywhere i post i just get shit about how i should "piss in the tank and set it on fire"

So the point of this post is to ask if there are any other virago owners that have adapted parts from the v star to work on the virago? I am mainly looking at the oil filter relocation kit.... The covers look kinda the same and i think uses the same bolt pattern but i cant afford to spend 300 dollars just to experiment right now. So if you can offer any insight i would really appreciate it.
