  1. 1984 VF1000F for sale in Chesapeake VA. The bike is complete but largely disassembled. I bought this bike a few years ago with the intent of restoring it to near original but life got in the way (back on sea duty). Before it came apart I got it running then broke it down because the frame needed refinishing. As it stands now, the engine was re-installed in the refinished frame. I rebuild the front forks which are back on the bike. The rest of the parts are in boxes. Garage kept since I acquired it. Along the way, I picked up some replacement parts, mostly from eBay. Plastics and tank are all there but someone painted them all orange. Why orange?? Some plastics have previously repaired damage. OEM shock is toast but I have a DMr shock. Title is clear but unknown mileage as it had an aftermarket dash when I bought it but I do have an OEM dash that I had intended to install. Attached pics show it before it was disassembled. $600 takes it all. I'll consider parting it out in a couple of weeks if interest in all of it is low. Can coordinate delivery within a reasonable distance from Chesapeake VA, 23322 Paul
  2. Question for those that are using this. When correct the speed display, does it affect the Odometer reading? In other words, does it throw the ODO off. I ask because my speedo (6th gen stock sprockets) appears 10 percent fast but the ODO seems near perfect. Thoughts?
  3. Silly question - What is that black spot/hole on the fuse cover panel? I see it on both sides. If it is a hole, what is the purpose, if any? OBTW, fabulous look!

  5. It's stock color (R-157 I think). Photo was taken late in the day when the sun was below the ridge line.
  6. Call this number (1-866-784-1870) and have your VIN ready. They should have on file what recalls are required and which have been done.

    On my bike, I've gotten pulled over twice. The first time was back in college when I only had a learners permit. It was late Saturday night and I was headed home from work. I was speeding. Also, riding at night and without a helmet was illegal for learners permit types like myself. Strikes 2 and 3 for me. He quized me at length and eventually let me go. He was on drunk patrol that night and I didn't fit the bill and he didn't want to deal with the paperwork. 10 years ago I pulled over on my CBR in San Diego doing 125 on I-15. I thought I was going to get a ride in the back of his cruiser wearing handcuffs. Nope, he read me the riot act and told me the paperwork wasn't worth his time because guys like me end up dead. I am older and wiser now but that beautiful VFR makes an attractive target for cops. I have been pulled over more times than I can count in my cage. The most recent was 4 years ago as age has made me fatter but also wiser. With all that I have only gotten one ticket. I have found that being polite and honest goes a long way. When asked, I have always fessed up to my speed. I suppose no warrents helps too.
