VF500F2 Aka MBD Incubation Period At Least 52 Years

Recommended Posts

I also find FR cylinder 4 is a real PITA to get to.  I have the proper Honda adjusting tool too but even with that it is really difficult to get onto the nut. If they are out it does make the bike much nicer to ride when they are all synced up though

kph don't forget. Be interesting if it was mph now...

My F2 is about the same. Seems a realistic top end for a well looked after VF500. At those speeds you are well above 9K rpm too.

Yeah, after 14,000km commuting that Metzeler Lasertec rear is as square as a square sausage!!!  (miss that Scottish cuisine...  :tongue:)

With the rear cover beginning to "sweat" a bit, I dropped by my dealer. Long and behold, he actually HAD a gasket in stock for my 33 year old!

They could no longer order it through Honda (NLA) so went to CMSNL for another one. When they are gone tgey are gone....

Yes, gonna get harder to keep them going. Then again, the way we are accelerating to an electric only future we might not need to.

SP's have one gremlin....... If the sun is shining from behind while parked up, the screen's inside will act like a parabolic mirror and melt the cockpit...

Mine came with that mark and I camouflaged it with a wee sticker.

 

But, jolo and all that.... :tongue:

Your Vessels look hardly used.  Admit it, you're just fishing for "Wow, those are some really nice screwdrivers you've got there, Leon" comments, aren't you?  :happy:

 

Ciao,

Yep, pretty much nailed it.

 

Did the same thing when I got my JIS screwdrivers about 6 years ago.

 

I even had the one that was an impact screwdriver.

 

I can still hear the crickets chirping after my proud post. 😉
