  1. You sound like one of the Harley faggots over here hating on all "Jap" bikes just because they're not Harleys. If you don't have something constructive to say - either for or against - then just shut the hell up.
  2. I just bought an older '93 XV 535 myself and love it. It is a smaller bike than I'm used to (I'm 6'2"), but with a small budget this lightly used bike (only 10k miles) fit the bill. I was worried that it wouldn't be comfortable or fast enough for me, but It's turned out not to be a problem at all. It'll do highway speeds just fine, run mine around 80 mph on the way to work at 6:00 am on the freeway. Gas mileage is good and from everything I've seen these bikes just run and run. It is a bit small for my frame, but you'll find it perfect. It is pretty light and handles well. I think you'll be pleased.
  3. Thank you Karen for the suggestion. While I had looked at pics of both bikes, really couldn't tell much. However, after reading your post I thought to look at the part listings of both bikes. The tanks on the listings look identical except for the 93 has Yamaha on the side and the 94 has Virago. I actually like the Virago one better! Rob
  4. Hi guys, I'm a new owner of a 93 Virago XV535. Didn't have much money and really needed another bike (had to sell old one after lost job, gotta eat!). I has 10k miles and runs great so far, mileage a little low but just prob needs a good tune. Anyway, there is only 1 big dent on it in the top gas tank. There is a '94 tank available for a reasonable price but I can't seem to find information as to whether it will fit the '93 or not. So - will a '94 top fuel tank fit a '93? Other than that, love riding the bike. Very nice to get back on the road.
