RS850 Replica

Recommended Posts

Just note that the RC30 sprockets are narrower than the modern VFR sprockets (not sure about your model), for 525 chains rather than 530 (apparently also called "chain 50" sometimes).  And there may be other OEM sprockets out there (that's my graphic, btw); those were just the ones I found in the JT sprockets catalog, I think.  

 

Ciao,

Well thank you for your efforts, I saw it after Seb mentioned the RC30 sprocket for my VF project, I always save things of interest and value....brain is not what it used to be....if it ever was.....haha

How have you found the YSS shock, I've not had much dealings with them, but they have good reports.

I've been very pleased with it (put in RaceTech srintgs and emulators upfront).

I dealt with a man who is an highly regarded suspension guru and works as a consultant for YSS too, visiting the factory in Thailand regularly.  The OEM unit is thoroughly shagged...

He had the compoments inhouse so he built mine. But I am confident that what comes from the factory is as good as.

The other brands (he sells those as well) like Hyperpro, Wilbers (I had one on redslut) were dearer for what I perceive as no better quality.

Thx @trooper1999 for the details about your frame modification.

 

And thx @JZH and @Forbes for the graphic very helpful.

 

About the rear shock I gone for a wilbers stage 3 fully adjustable and it works like a charm, great improvement compare to the stock one. For the front a VTR1000 SP1 year 2000 ø41 fork with wheel and brakes.

I think I'm starting to make some progress with the exhaust, I've had a good afternoon. the upper one just needs some spring hooks welding on and the lower needs the left header altering and then on to the silencers.

Finally managed to get a little work done on the RS today, made a ruff cut out for the lower silencer bracket, seat mount made just got to make a couple of lugs for the front of the seat.

Started on the rear caliper torque arm  (more parts ordered). I've attached a couple of photos with and without the seat fitted.

Sorry all, I've not had much chance to get on line for a few weeks, but I've been pottering with the bike!

Started with the fairing bracket/clock mount, managed to get hold of a set of 125 Honda clocks (not sure what from but they look right), so I've swapped the VFR internals for the 125 ones so all should work OK, New caliper brackets made and fitted along with hoses and front brakes bled. Been on with the wiring alterations and sorting out where and how to mount various bits, ie ECU, fuel pump, starter solenoid etc, trying to cut out all the redundant wiring from the loom.

I've made some good progress with a RS850 fairing hopefully should have a answer on it by the end of May (not easy dealing with somebody who doesn't speak great English).

I'll try and get some up to date photo's posted soon.

Hey Troop, what sort of rear master cylinder is that?

Any info would be much appreciated.

Hi VFROZ, Sorry but I'm not sure of the make, I bought it last year at Stafford Classic bike show for £10.00, I think it's a copy of may be Brembo, I just liked the look of it.

I like it, might have to search around.

Keep up the good work, starting to look good.

Hi all, I think I need help! with the bike not my mental health😀 this I think applies to all the RC24 owners does the fuel pump run all the time when the ignition key is turned on, mine seems a bit intermittent it  runs some times and not others when the engine is not running, I've not had a lot of experience with these bikes so am learning on the fly, but my FZ750 pump runs for a few moments and then cuts out until the engine starts.

So I'm not sure if I've got a faulty pump or it's normal.

The "Fuel Cut Relay" should prevent the pump from working unless it is being cranked for starting or running.  It would have to be faulty or jumped to allow the pump to operate when just turning the key on and not cranking.  But I have never heard of one going bad in that way.  They usually just fail and not allow the pump to run.  Many people just bypass them, but I wire in a parallel switch so I can control when it pumps (like after storage when the carbs have been drained) or get home when it fails.  It was designed as a safety feature so the pump just wouldn't continue to operate when not wanted.

 

Sounds like yours has been bypassed.

The fuel pump on my 1990 ST1100 runs for 5 seconds when the ignition is switched on, then continuously when the engine is turning.

Just a little update, Friday was my day off so had a couple of hours on the RS, after a few false starts ( sorting oil leaks out that the engine didn't have last time it ran) & with a home made fuel tank we had some life, it ran for a while but I couldn't run it too long as I didn't have the radiators fitted, just got them back today from having the mounting brackets altered so just a test fitting. I have been on with altering the wiring loom mounting ECU fuse box, starter solenoid and trying to find where to put the battery etc.

just a few photo's

VFR400 (NC30) radiators with mounting brackets altered, one of the next jobs is the oil cooler, either re mount the standard or sort new one, it should look like this though.
