I just picked mine up three weeks ago and have had it stripped down in the living room ever since replacing/adding parts and cleaning it up. Here is the before pic, I should have the after pics available within the next week or two once all of parts get in and it will look mcuh better imo. First thing I did was pull the giant tank and replaced with an Clarke 4.3.... and of course removed all of the stickers. Not to mention the other $600+ worth of toys I have bought for it!
I sold my 02 VFR800 over the weekend and as soon as the buyer mails the tag back I can transfer the title for the BRP from South Carolina to NC. Hopefully it all goes smoothly!

comment on oil

check some of the sport bike forums, many thrashers are useing C rated oils such as rotella mainly because they have little or no additives and the polimer structure of C rated oils is round and ball like not long and cylinder, the thought is that the cylinders get chopped up by the gears in the transmission, the feeling is that the Automotive oil gets fractured and thus the friction fighting capability reduces
here is some info on the latest CJ-4 rateing
