    My Latest Project Is Complete - '86 VFR750F

    I’m super happy with my abba stand. A bit more money than a pitbull stand but much more capable. I’m usng it on my rc36 but very likely they have fittings for an rc24.

    Congrats, Joe! The twin Supertrapps are THE BEST SOUNDING EXHAUST on a RC24. kevin

    Rebuilding 94 VFR carb tips ?

    You're focusing on clogged jets, but don't forget about other possibly clogged passages, including air bleeds. You might want some expert advice (or let an expert do it) to clean the whole carbs properly. (note: I am not an expert!)
  4. Jamie says I put the shock in backwards. Crap.

    Vfr 750 - 92

    OMG. I probably shouldn't admit I was working on my 90 when I wrote that.

    Vfr 750 - 92

    Might want to grab a spare subframe with pegs while you can. :)
  7. Hey y’all— I just put a Daugherty 929 shock on my 1990 RC36 and the reservoir is in the way of the starter relay. I’ve seen a little talk about this on newer VFRs but not RC36s. Has anyone else found this? What did you do about it, specifically? I figure I need to move the relay to the right side of the battery. How did you secure it? How did you insulate the terminals? Did you lengthen or shorten wires? Thanks! kevin
  8. Joe, I think you did the math backwards. $1 Canadian is $0.77 US.
  9. On the other hand, I recently bought a used Hindle on eBay for $275, but to compare it to a new one, it needs to be shined up a lot, the 2 bottom pipes un-crushed, a new can and a new pipe between the collector and the can! In the end it'll cost as much as new (maybe more!), plus take me a lot of effort. The good news for me is, mine's a 4-into-1, while this new one is a 4-2-1, and I think the 4-into-1 sounds a lot better (comparing another 4-1 Hindle I used to have to the HRC pipe my friend had).
  10. Evl_twin-- Do you know anything about the VFR in your pics? What's up with the second radiator?? Extrapolating from the other exhaust prices on their web page, I don't think I'll be feeling silly about what I paid for the fixer-upper Hindle I recently bought....
  11. I don't think we'll have to worry about that. Unlike the originals, it's a 4-2-1. The front pipes Y right after they pass the rear pipes, and I gather the rear pipes Y right after turning rearward, right below the front Y. They're beautiful though. Looking forward to a sound clip and a price!
