Nice one! A friend of mine had a 02 and that was the bike that sold me on the motor. He has since sold his (in fact he's the guy in the pics with the showroom looking 99 VFR)

Unless you are short, I'd restore that bike to stock configuration. Better springs/oil up front and there are a number of used sportbike shocks that will make the rear end feel much better for little money.
