  1. I bought this VF500F earlier this year as a project bike and my second ever motorcycle. I have been working on making it look better and work as it did in the '80s(while modernizing where I can). I thought I was buying a 1985 VF500F, but have since found out from the MTO history documents that it is an '84. Its got 56 thousand km on it, but it runs and it was cheap. I have been told that one of the previous owners restored it using a few donor bikes and based on the frame paint and what not I'd say it has. I have been taking it apart and learning how it works so that I can fix up anything is out of date or falling apart. It has been fairly straight forward so far using guides and chatting with people on this forum, but I have a few questions and am looking for general advice. I've been thinking about the exhaust on this bike for awhile. The bike has some sort of upgraded 4-1 exhaust on it and I think I've identified it as the Hindle 4-1 pipe. It shows it's age though. There is rust pitting and an odd cloudy texture on the metal. How do I resurface the pipe? Also, the can that was on the end was a SuperTrap, but its kinda broken and I'd like something lower profile too. I have been considering leaving the end open as a straight pipe, except the end of the pipe is messed up and has an adapter bolted straight through it. To fix this I want to remove the end bit of the pipe and fab my own stainless side exit. Would this be viable? Will it mess with the tuning too much? I am aware of the carb jetting I'd need to do in order to make it work and I can do it. All that I've been reading from GAZ's topic about building his own pipe has put me off though. I'd also like to know what having this pipe means compared to stock. Besides the exhaust I am open to advice for things to fix. So far my list of things to do looks like this: Tires Repainted wheels Lights Speedometer Redone seat Chain and sprockets Wobbly clutch lever(How do I fix this?) Carb sync and clean Carb jetting Mirrors I am going to link an album of pictures here for the pipe. http://imgur.com/a/RmqqA P.S. - I am not keeping the original look of this bike, but I am a huge fan of the engineering behind the VFR series and I've wanted one of these since I first got into bikes. If anyone in Ontario needs red plastics or stock parts I can hook you up. This is an ultra-low budget D.I.Y. build, since I'm 18 and in school(before anyone suggests super sonic builders who can do it for me). Why is mine red?
  2. Got myself one of these from good old ebay. The idea was to turn the parking light in to a daytime running light, and maybe a more effective parking light for the same power draw. Not that i've ever needed the parking light... (required in the UK when parking on a road with a speed limit of 40mph or more, but i'd just park off the road). I also bought one of this type of LED to try. Couldn't really get it back in to the headlight without dislodging it from the housing, and i had concerns about the top mounted LED causing heat problems as it'd be less than 5mm from a plastic part directly above the bulb. Next up: Brake light LEDs.
  3. I thought I'd share my modifications progress so far. It's been a busy few days as all my new parts arrived this week, and my ride has been feeling the love. My mods so far: Two Brothers S1R Slip-on. Ventura Pack-rack & Euro-Rally expandable tail-bag. Powerbronze dark-tint airflow windscreen. LED Indicators front and rear (with 50W 6ohm load resistors) Designing a tail-tidy/fender eliminator with integrated rear reflector so as to be street-legal. Happy BikeDay, just picked up the new ride. Traded in my black Gen-6 for a black Gen-8. TBR S1R pipe, and Ventura rack fitted. Load resistor, front LED indicator, and rear LED indicator - all sourced from eBay. Stock (left) vs. LED (right). The orange reflection from the globe has been removed. I mounted the load resistors under the grab-handle frame using pineapple tape, in the locations circled. I couldn't find room inside the mirror housings for the load resistors - especially not if they get hot which is very possible on a 40┬░ Celsius day stopped in traffic. Instead I ran wiring down the mirror stalk and mounted the resistors on the dash/windscreen frame using more pineapple tape.
  4. I like lists, i like sharing lists. I also like to get feedback on work or addons to do. Would love to get replacement mirrors with that 'memory click' position thing like modern bikes have - But would need to pretty much be bolt on and go. Even better if they have built-in indicators. I'm mostly restoring or improving bits around the bike right now; Older bolts are being replaced with OEM parts, some of the weird green-ish ones are being swapped out with stainless versions and/or being upgraded to a caphead.

  5. Hey guys, The season is going to be coming to a close for me in the next month or two and I want to start getting some ideas of what mods I should look into over the winter. So far all I have is a K&N air filter and Akra exhaust, I've managed to put on 15000km since May with these mods so I want to change things up a bit for next year. The mods can be cosmetic, performance or otherwise, I just want to see what everyone has done to their 8th gens.
  6. From the album 96 VFR 750

    I've had some people ask what parts came from where. Aside from farkles (throttle lock, lights, ets), it's basically a 96 VFR (1) with some VF500 plastic (2), a CBR front end (3) and a SRAD GSXR tail section (4). So, 4 bikes. . . and some small stuff from other bikes.
  7. i bought a '93 VFR 750, and is interested in Streetfighting it, and has no idea what is compatible with my bike. I am open for advice and recommendation. I wanted to upgrade the Engine, but not sure if it is a good idea. and also i was looking at a few mods done to some bike http://www.vfrdiscussion.com/forum/index.php/topic/62316-my-3rd-gen-frankenviffer/ & http://www.vfrdiscussion.com/forum/index.php/topic/66272-my-modified-vfr/ and I am impressed at what they did. I will appreciate any help i get. Thank you in advance.

  10. Figured I needed a place to capture the next few weeks of mods as I'm a total electrical noob and I'll be needing some help along the way. Got the bike in late Feb and so far I've completed: Signal Dynamics Wig Wag brake light modulator Signal Dynamics headlight modulator with new Silverstars Rim Wrap - silver rim tape (decided against the yellow) NEP Cruise control Fenderectomy with cool LED license plate light Grip Puppies grip covers (coming off for heated grips install) Started tankslapper install with tank protector strip only Hopefully, I'll get the mirror extenders shortly and finish the tankslapper install on the next warm weekend. Still waiting on the Chinese levers. Since it's going to be rainy for the next week or two, thought I'd get to the electrical stuff. On tap: Symtec heated grips with round toggle switch VFRNess with accessory bundle 3 switched, 1 unswitched Stebel Nautilus horn with wiring kit Lascar EMV1200 Voltmeter (think I want to paint the bezel black too) Any thoughts on the order of the mods? I was thinking: VFRNess - obviously Lascar - to be able to read the gauge as I do the others Symtec - same mounting location as Lascar (left black panel under clutch - must dremel/drill panel) http://www.vfrdiscussion.com/forum/index.php/gallery/image/39915-vfr-for-sale-photos-010jpg/ Stebel - seems the biggest pain depending on mounting location and can ride without it if I get frustrated. Can this be done in a weekend and still have time for a set of tennis and church on Sunday?
  11. I need to call on those that currently suffer from MBD and ask if there might be anyone with an F4(i) in their garage or at least at their disposal that would be willing to pull some measurements from the passenger peg assemblies. I am looking for the measurement between the mounting holes as well as the distance between each mounting hole and the exhaust hanger point on the right side. Ultimately, I'm looking for an alternative set of passenger peg brackets that will fit a VTEC that come from a bike with a standard mount exhaust. I'm running a side mount can with a custom hanger currently and would like to see if there are options to accommodate a passenger. If anyone knows of any that share measurements with the VTEC that would be awesome! Any assistance is greatly appreciated!
