  1. Rear-sets - looking for aftermarket CNC

    I have the stock ones at work. PM sent to SEBSPEED for address.
  2. Rear-sets - looking for aftermarket CNC

    I've got a set off I'll send you.
  3. Exhaust collector (balance) box

    The only difference COULD be the difference in the center stand location. The exhaust relationship between the engines is exactly the same... they share the same crankcase. There's a good chance the Magna center stand location took up more room and the collector could work just fine on the Interceptor, even with a center stand. The angle of the muffler attachment outlets could be an issue though. The VF1000R collector will mount on a VF1000F. It has more volume as it takes the space where the F center stand lives. But the angle of the outlets prevents using any 1000F mufflers.
  4. Rear-sets - looking for aftermarket CNC

    I've been looking at this shit for decades, and the mounting tabs from that era are unique. You can't even mix and match between 80's V4 models, they are all different (except for the 84 VF1000F and the VF700/750F). Not even the VF400F and the VF500F share the same mounting tab locations. Find some cheap CBR600 CNC rear sets (pretty much any year) and make some adapter plates. With some countersunk chamfered bolts for the plates, you can pretty much put them wherever you want and only be marginally wider than stock.
  5. What can you tell me about my VF500?

    It looks like that might be a real Dymag wheel. It's configuration without a cush drive would help adapting the custom belt pulley. It would be wider than stock and could take a wider, lower profile tire. Perhaps even a radial.
  6. What can you tell me about my VF500?

    Whatever they call 'em... I wish they did that around here. But there is NO WAY IN HELL that could happen here in the States, no matter how many waivers were signed.
  7. What can you tell me about my VF500?

    This is a "track"?!!!! I can't believe they allow people to stand right at the end of the straights. Don't get me wrong, I would run it in an instant, but HOLY SHIT! Seems really un safe.
  8. What can you tell me about my VF500?

    Please follow this advice. He is absolutely right. I have gotten away with some 42 pilots on some of my bikes depending on mods, but 40 is the sweet spot for the 500.
  9. RS850 Replica

    It will be a bolt-on for the VF750 frame and the steering stops look nearly identical, both on the frames and lower clamps. So, same calipers you had, with some new custom brackets? Gold Valve Cartridge Emulators and eliminate the TRAC?

    Thank you so much! I try to build a lot of my bikes as if Honda could have done it. This one with the home made "graphics" not so much. But the bodywork, yes. Very happy. The RC26.
  11. RS850 Replica

    Sure looks like it. Bolt pattern for taillight (LED!!!) matches. So cool!!!!!

    When Honda was developing the 900RR (which started out as a 750), test riders found that corner transitions from fully leaned over one side to the other side felt faster and easier, allowing the air flow thru the extremes from the center of rotation, versus the same fairing without. There are holes down near the leading edge of the lowers as well.

    Got it outside for a couple shots right when it started raining.
