Hello:

There is a web site in The Netherlands, CMS, which has the on-line parts-fiche listed for most, but not all, VFRs (including U.S. models):

http://www.cmsnl.com/

CMS has a particularly nice feature. If you already have a part number from another source, or, if you acquire a part number from a parts-fiche on CMS, you have the option to click on the underlined part number, and this handy little cross reference window opens up, which is entitled, "Suited for models." So, that "Suited for models" cross reference will show you EVERY Honda, which ever used that part. This, therefore, often can answer those frequently-asked questions such as, "Will a widget from an '86 fit the '87?"

Ron Ayres also has a "Reverse Part Number Lookup." This too is a nice feature. If you already have a part number, load the part number into that field, and the system pulls-up a list of the bikes using that part AND the parts-fiche parts list, drawing (click on "view" to see the drawing). Very cool:

http://fiche.ronayers.com/Index.cfm

Not ALL VFRs are listed on CMS; not ALL VFRs are listed on Ron Ayres, but between the two resouces, you can usually get the information you want.

Steering stem (head race) bearings:

This company, CBR Bearings, has a TAPERED bearing kit for the '86 thru '89 VFRs (this kit MAY fit other models too, but I do not know for sure). It is their kit part number CBR903RK. This is a very nice set of bearings (complete with dust seals), made in Japan. http://www.cbrbearing.com/

Hello:

I, for one, had never seen that one before. I just checked-it-out. It has some nice features: nice, clear drawings, the ability to zoom in for a closer look. For the VFRs, however, it jumps over the '88 FJ and the '89 FK models. But, hey, another resource. Thanks.

Ever noticed VFRD has a links section just for this purpose? As topics gets pruned after about 120(?) days of inactivity it is not a bad idea to add new links posted in this thread to that page.

I am aware of the links pages but It gets real time consuming looking for a certain subject thru hundreds of links. The idea is to keep this specific to the older VFRs to make it more user friendly and convenient to find the obscure websites. As this is the case, I may eventually prune a few of the more general links if need be.

Here are a couple of european links:

www.wilbers.de (suspension - a german company, but with english as a language option I believe

I got a Wilbers rear shock in my RC15 - great stuff!

If you order from them, you tell them your weight with gear, the weight of your passenger (with gear), how often you ride with your passenger, how often you ride with luggage, what roads you ride normally, ....

Then, they will manufacture this rear shock to your specification without additional cost, .... but it will take some time - usually 2 weeks, ....

I also think this thread should be pinned. I have every intention to ride my fifth gen for as long as I can swing a leg over it (at 69 yrs. old it gets harder every year). So I can imagine the day when parts for it are hard to find. And these links could be invaluable in chasing down suppliers for later generations.

 

Excellent suggestion Crepitus!
