  1. I did this mod as well. Like halfrider, I'm going naked, and I didn't want to mess anything up by having half of my coils exposed to the elements, since I ride in pretty much whatever weather. It was not a difficult mod, and it did drop a slight bit of weight from the bike. About as much as a good poop...
  2. Yeah, I'm just messing with you, Seb. Your work is top notch, btw. Lol I'm not sure my budget will ever allow for nice custom made parts from you, but I'll sure drool over the pics. I just got the bike running again. It was the dang bank angle sensor. There's one less concern in my world! Whew!
  3. Lol says the guy who makes custom parts for people :D
  4. Lol I'd love to be able to afford someone to cleanly chop up my harness. I did that once, on a 92 vfrI had... I took it to a nice shop I know, and it wound up costing $800 to mount a dual sport style headlight and wrap some wires up in a big way of electrical tape. :/
  5. What did you do with all the extra cables and stuff? Shove them in the airbox? Stuff them under the tank?
  6. Sounds good. I was considering and acewell or vapor, but leaning towards the vapor because of cost.
  7. hey keef, i am ready to start my own naked vfr project. from looking at the front end without the fairing on it, i'm going to have to remove the dash in order to fit a headlight. what gauges did you go with, and how did you mount them? my budget is not real big. i'm trying to be fairly cheap, with ebay and amazon. i have been wanting to shed some pounds off the bike for a while, but didnt feel terribly motivated until today. i paid like $40 last week for some headlight bulbs, to replace the burnt out ones on my bike. today was the first day i had with rideable weather. before i even got off my road, i hit a pothole and both low beams died. i had high's, but no low's. i got home and took the front fairing off and started looking at my options. i found some chinese grom style gauges for cheap, but idk about the quality.
  8. i like how my vfr looks stock, but i would really like to put the bike on a diet. i just recently acquired the bike in a trade for a 2001 sv650. i would really like to have a tail like the sv's, with a rear seat that opens easily for storage. in my workplace cell phones are not allowed, so i have always kept the phone under the sv's seat. with the vfr this is more of a pain in the ass, and i feel like the bending of the seat isnt doing the seat any good either. for a while i was considering building a pair of ammo box panniers, but then realized that my exhaust would fry the right side can. i then decided on doing a top box, but i cant figure a good way to mount the thing without damaging the seat or cutting any fairings. my current plan is to redo the tail with a different subframe and seat. if it is something very minimalist, like the ducati monster, where the seat is the whole tail, other than a little bit of exposed subframe, i might be able to tuck a small lockable box under the seat to store my phone and mp3 player in while im at work. or i could possibly get a setup similar to that of my sv. i think i'd rather have the monster tail though. as for the leftover exposed tabs on the tank, i'm thinking of swapping tanks with something else. i hear that the vtr can accept a vfr tank, and i think i have read of a few hawk gt's with vfr tanks. if i can manage to pull this off, it will be in a fairly drawn out time span, but it will be awesome! i have a 1992 vfr 750f btw
