To balance this commentary:
If you are intending to do an exhaust, the catalytic is of no concern.
If you are planning a front end swap, I doubt you will have much trouble delinking the remaining rear brakes.
Dmac -- would you hate me more if I told you the bike I bought was forsale in Chapel Hill, NC? I drove from Harrisburg, PA to get it.
I have a local friend also wanting one, so, I'll have to give him the nod on the first one I see for sale. He also has right of first refusal if I ever sell this one.
After he gets his, sure, I'll give you a heads-up on any I find.
My friend and I would both each like a CBR400RR (NC29) and/or a CBR250RR (MC19 or MC22) the 4-cylinder screamer.
These lightweight small-displacement bikes are so much fun to ride. I would say that the NC30 definitely as much, if not more entertaining to ride as my VFR750. Now, the VFR750 does provide all-day comfort that the NC30 does not.
hella cool VFR400 up there.
I'd pick that up over pretty much any bike right now! Looking good
Damn, it looks like the 100k mark is getting to be so common, nobody is paying any attention to the latest members. Alternatively, this may be just a case of poor timing, there have certainly been more high mileage 750/780 VFRs than VFR400s of any distance.
Welcome to the club Chris
Without hesitation, and twice on the weekend.
Yes. Absolutely. I'm three hours from there. Grr.
I suspect that this bike was sold by a shop in Raleigh that was loosely associated with TapeWorks. I saw one like that on the floor years ago. It was unclear how they proposed to get it registered. Want one bad. You're right about small bikes being fun. It doesn't hurt that I'm the right size for one.
This one was imported into California in 1995 by the person I bought it from. He & his wife moved to NC in 2007.
Well, that ain't the one I saw, then.
All the parts are like small jewelry. The spark plugs are the size of pencils. So neat.
I have a VFR750 but would love to add an NC30 or NC35 to the collection. I have an FZR400 and love it but it's certainly no V4. I have right of first refusal on an RC30 but don't have the little brother lined up yet.

ive had the fairing resprayed, fresh synth 9100 motul oil, motul ultamate coolant now mixed right, and motul 5.1 brake fluid all round, shes back together now, all ready for my licence to be returned to me in about 6 weeks, bike hasnt even hit 10,000km yet.
STORM SHADOW, I am envious of your nice rack(s)
Luggage solutions for 3rd Gen seem few and FAR between.
I run soft bags but not happily.
Great looking machine!!
ive got givi panniers too, they arnt on the bike right now.
i had all my soft luggage stolen once upon a time on tour, very annoying, and vowed i would invest in hard luggage on my next bike...
I spent some time yesterday doing a mockup and some CAD sketches for a good (factory looking) solution for my 93.
Made some good progress. Should have something by next month. Then to pick up some GIVI sides and maybe a top boxish option as well.
BTW the way SUBBED to the White Bike thread
no need to show you a picture of my panniers then lol
Hepco and Becker (German but there are US distributors) still make hard bags and mounts for 3rd gen VFR's (1990-1993). I have a brand new set in the box bieng shipped to me right now that I'll probably never use since I got a Ninja 1000 w/ bags 3 weeks ago. Sent you a PM.
I got a set of these last year for my 4th gen. I already had the bags from my other bikes, so all I needed to buy were the racks.
They look great, IMHO. The side bags pictured are the "Junior" bags. I have since replaced "Journey" top case with the better looking and functionally superior "Junior" 55L top case. I also have a Junior 40L top case for when I don't need to carry much.
