Very sharp CRB100F!

I had a white tip on my 86 VFR too. One of the best noise makers EVER! Gear whine and Nascar bark.. lovely.

Yup. Easily diassembled via the allen bolts on the rear circumference of the can. I had had best results using glass wool intended for use with 2 strokes. It seems to take the shrill resonance away, and quiet the bark a little more than the typical muffler packing.

I owned an 88 1000f for 18 years. The only problem I had with it was that it ran hot if you did not keep it moving. Definitely not a city bike. It had a real kick at around 6,000 rpm so hold on.

Only pic I have handy is a detail day pic, but this is (rather, was) my '93.



I miss that bike.

Here is my 18 year old 88, the year I sold it, parked next to a new 96 Gixer.

Indeed sitting at traffic lights you have to do the hop side to side dance, especially when the fan kicks in. It blows out super heated air out the side vents right onto your thighs.

They don't overheat for those that are interested in one, they just run at a solid temperature and the plastic bodywork holds the heat in.

The big upside is your inner thighs will be roasting no matter the weather, the rest of you will be freezing

Though, a thread called CB100F isn't going to get hit that much, since it's the 1000F

I liked my '87 a lot, except for the rattle of the hydraulic cam chain tensioner at idle. I never replaced it because my buddy who did his said it was back in a few thousand miles!?!

I had a ZX600R that blew hot air right onto your shins when moving, or when stopped if the fan was running.

The more I look at bikes, the more I want more bikes, including a Hurricane. The two issues are, I'm running out of room to store them, and I can't find decent bikes that I want locally.
