Here's and update on the 99 VFR I bought for $2600. I put 600 miles on it this week so its at 50,700 miles. It looks showroom new and has an impressive folder full of maintenance records, but I think I understand why the seller let it go cheap. Worn steering bearings take all the joy out of sporting riding. A bad thermostat keeps the ECU on the warm-up map and it only gets 32 mpg. The battery keeps going down due to a bad regulator. So I have all three things that tend to go bad on high milage VFRs. No problem! I'm gonna fix em all and put another 50K on this great machine.
Oh, and thanks for the tip Kbasa.
