  1. What's important is important, no? Sent from my HTC_PN071 using Tapatalk
  2. A friend of mine had the VF400 in South Africa, really quick, was always curious about the inboard discs..... On the 750's the 'V' is different between the Magna, front bank further forward, shaft drive, motor turns reverse to the chain drive, forward, front bank more upright.... Is this so with the 400 motor too? Sent from my HTC_PN071 using Tapatalk
  3. My thoughts, but hey he's proven he can do what he wants... Sent from my HTC_PN071 using Tapatalk
  4. Hope it's not a case of brain dead joke... Guys trying to sell his high mileage car unsuccessfully, his mate tells him he needs to give it a 'haircut'....he does so, but said friend see's him with the same car weeks later and enquires if he still couldn't sell it? Said brain dead friend reply's "no it's got low mileage I decided to keep it" [emoji24] Sent from my HTC_PN071 using Tapatalk
  5. Seems like forever since last post, withdrawal symptoms of note.... Sent from my HTC_PN071 using Tapatalk
  6. Ok, time flies, suppose that's why projects take so long....after getting a hi-tenstile bar to my newfound machinist, he's made one swingarm bolt so far, I've ordered two for next project. Not fully complete but I'm happy there's some progress. Went around yesterday and made the infill plate for the frame where I cut into it and clarified some details so he can complete all bushes and lock bolt. As you'll see in the picture the new bolt uses the existing thread on the left of the frame. It seems a small part of the build but it's probably the most important, everything else will piggyback of this. Sent from my HTC_PN071 using Tapatalk
  7. Welcome, Anything is worth fixing if it has value in your eyes, seems you're halfway there anyway. Good find, if you haven't had a V four before, careful, they're addictive.... Following with interest! Sent from my HTC_PN071 using Tapatalk
  8. Life's a journey, you've enjoyed it so far.....keep safe! Sent from my HTC_PN071 using Tapatalk
  9. A world wide problem! Here down under....crims repeatedly getting slaps on the wrist, but if ordinary Joe slips up, gone...lose everything. Infuriates me! Was a cop in South Africa years ago, seen the inside dealings of justice.... Sent from my HTC_PN071 using Tapatalk
  10. What VFR4Lee said, good socket flat sides internally, hexagonal, not multi fit that rides on the edges, or you'll have to get one of those with the rounds on them that lock on the middle of flat section of the bolt. Seen them undoing even partially rounded bolts.. Sent from my HTC_PN071 using Tapatalk
  11. I had an SL125 at 13, baught with my own pocket money. It's where it all started... Sent from my HTC_PN071 using Tapatalk
  12. Sfdownhill, you in South Africa? Cause that's pretty much how Zuma counts, worse actually... I'm 49 at present, was off bikes for too long, VF750 project, but might have to get something in the interim...VFR[emoji106] Sent from my HTC_PN071 using Tapatalk
  13. I would hazard that that's more of a servo than an actual spinning motor, so yes, probably got hot and fried....or just dry joints internally? Sent from my HTC_PN071 using Tapatalk
  14. And a wife who wants to ride it as much as you! You chose well... Great job, enjoy the machine and the memory. Sent from my HTC_PN071 using Tapatalk
  15. Welcome Doc, wow, a find and a steal. Think I'll have to start looking for something like that, my project vf is taking it's time... Sent from my HTC_PN071 using Tapatalk
