I love the engine but the bodywork has always seemed a bit dated looking and "heavy" so some light customizing could help me get a VFR that looks like a more modern RC30. Or something like the Frankenviffers below.

Seen any other good ones? I feel like a little updating could go a long way on a 4th or 5th gen.

Well, there's always the RC45 look.

I love the bike and upgrades but that whole Japanese slash graphics thing looks like a clown threw up on the bike. I like the VFR because its got class. That paint - not so much.

Yeah, that paint scheme isn't my favorite either. Otherwise, it seems to be a very well done conversion, and I really like the RC45 look.

Oddly enough (odd because I don't smoke, and didn't grow up watching motorsport), I find the '99 Lucky Strike livery to be pretty attractive:


Joey Dunlop's '94 IOM TT livery is classy and simple. You could do something similar in red with some tasteful lettering and come out looking good without going full-on race-replica, I think:

Wow, there is a lot going on with this bike! Clearly some front end and rear carrier work, plus the aesthetic additions. Care to share a list? Those clear clutch covers are cool.

Cool, I thought so. Way back, I was one of (as far as we knew) the first four folks to get a VFR800 Wolf system. We called ourselves the "Wolfpack," and I was the keeper of the list. We got up to about 15 members before folks started either crashing, or selling. But it was a stunning system, and really transforms the bike. Yours looks great.
