Don't worry about it I lube it up every week it'll get a proper jet wash when I head back home for a weekend, Got the new wheels look amazing and fitted with michelin power race tyres so will be grippy, NGK iridium spark plugs came in this morning aswell, I don't have any of my tools at university so having a shop get the plugs fitted, fix the rear seat lock and generally check the fuel lines.

Will also get a full Renthal chain and sprocket this summer for the better weather conditions now they're still is some road salt on the road.

had the fuel tank problem sorted, rear seat lock fixed but the spark plugs i bought weren't the right ones but will get the proper ones fitted on wednesday, took her for a 63mile spin around the countryside of Oxfordshire perfect for the little revvy VFR.

agreed Honda did really make the older generation Viffers something else thats for sure last long ride I was chasing 14K revs for so much of the ride as thats when the engine truly sings.

Won't get my bike back until tomorrow now with two corroded front HT leads, Also just won a offer for a full ART exhaust system, she's abit dirty but since its stainless steel it'll clean up fine I have a spray at home specifically to remove the brownish tinge on stainless steel.

Love your bike.. My wife is currently looking at one of these for her first bike. She just isn't sure how the fit will be, she is 5'9". Any chance of a pic with you one the bike to see seating position.. Finding pics online with reference for the height of the rider is a no go so far. The bike we are looking at is very similar color scheme to yours. Grey market here in Ontario Canada but found a guy that is importing them and a bunch of others at decent coin..

Really wanting my bike back now will be 6 days come tomorrow having the carbs rebuilt as she's suffering a fuel flow problem with the cylinders being starved of fuel, new airfilter should arrive tomorrow, carb mod also being done at the same time. have now been advised what jet sizes I should fit when I get round to fitting my ART exhaust system.

Here's mine. One of my favourite bikes I've ever owned. I've put about 90,000 kms on mine, and it still runs like a Swiss watch. I take mine touring, for weeks at a time, and on a tight twisty road, there's not a bike out there that will get away from you. Until the speeds get over 100 m/hr anyway :)
Here she is in New Zealand

Can't see myself ever selling her

Got my bike back friday and been loving it but do need a new less restrictive air filter as I have a flat spot in the high end revs not too much of a issue, got a few other things fitted and picked up my ART exhaust system a nice 110mile blast to and back in total. Snakecharmr I haven't forgotten your request will have a picture taken tomorrow. will fit the exhaust come the summer list of other parts needed, 120 jets, RVF 520 chain and sprocket set, new exhaust gaskets, brembo brake pads and braided brake lines.




had to cable tie my speedo as when I change the speedo face the rear rubbers that kept it straight were very cracked so didn't hold it at a straight angle to the rider this works fine, abit of my motorsport and automotive engineering side coming out with the drift colour cable ties being used.
