hellindustries posted a topic in Fifth Generation VFR'sEvening all. My header pipes are hole-free, but look like rusted ass. All surface stuff. Just wondering what the recommended method is for removing it without having to do more than taking the bodywork off for access. I'll be taking the panels off, cleaning the pipes and then coating them with VHT and i don't want to risk stripping a bolt and all the hassle and cost associated with it. I also have limited time to do the job (maybe 6-8 hours at most, for bench access). If it's just a case of flossing with sand paper? Can do. Simple, just requires some elbow-grease, but if there's a better/quicker method which doesn't cost much? I'm all ears. From there: Masking off and painting the pipes with black VHT Might spend a little and get some satin black Simoniz, rather than the flat black i have access to.
I just bought a 1992 VFR750 on the weekend. In fact it is featured in the 2012 VFRworld calendar for October. It is totally stock with the exception of a K&N air filter. It's in good working order and really doesn't need anything, which is good because I don't have much money to throw at it. Being new to VFRs, are there any inexpensive mods or aftermarket parts that are worth doing? So far I'm thinking: - swap out the red rear turn signals for amber ones, or I was even considering going clear all around (any ideas where to get them cheap?) - maybe find some frame sliders to protect the mint body work (any ideas who makes some for this year?) - new battery (what type would you suggest?) - I heard about the wiring upgrade (VFRness) thing. So I will be checking to see if it has been done yet. Eventually maybe upgrade the suspension and exhaust, but I don't think I can afford that right now. I'm sure I'll be spending some time on this forum. Seems like a great resource so far.
