  1. That looks very familiar! Good work! BaileyRock
  2. That's right, you finally got a Real bike to play on!
  3. Underoath87 Did you ever get this swap completed?
  4. Just messing with you anyway, so details are not that important. Where you been man???
  5. David, I think your bike did it from all the Dragon rash on it!
  6. That won't buff out? Glad it wasn't you on the VFR against a dump truck!
  7. There was this one time when I went to look at a 99 VFR. Kind of crapy pictures in the ad and it was way out in the boonies. Once I found the property in question I was instructed to pull up behind and old bard out in the middle of a field several hundred yards from the dirt road :-0 I was a little nervous, but all fear departed when i spotted the VFR behind that said barn. All good and that bike has been my brothers 5th gen for about a decade. BR
  8. That extra length won't hurt and will actually quicken the steering some. Search rear shock change out and slap that XX in there. Might take an hour and you can always go back if you don't like it for some reason. BR
  9. Kris, The XX shock would be an improvement over stock as it's got a 16.9 kg spring if I remember correctly, BUT at your weight if you were to set up the bike properly something in the range of 22-24 KG and at least 1.1kg fork springs would be in the ball park. I think the XX shock is slightly longer then the 6th gen shock as well, so for starters I would slap it in the bike and set sag as best as you can and it would be an improvement over stock, but not the same as setting it up for your weight. Sounds like your not a ripper, so the XX shock would be an improvement over stock. BR
  10. At your weight I wouldn't think a revalve would be needed, but be sure that 99 shock doesn't need to be rebuilt.Pretty sure the F4 Shock had a 14kg spring where the VFR has a 15.3kg Spring. If the VFR spring will fit I would install it. Have you or do you plan on any fork work?
  11. Maybe that explains why i received a box with 20 plus Tee's, headsets & BRC's from these guys! Not sure why they all came here? J/K I haven't seen a thing either. BR
  12. Stock fork springs are .744 like mentioned, not .85. Personally at 135 lbs I would test and measure rider & free sag before any spring change from stock on either end first. I wouldn't think you would need too much of a spring rate increase except maybe the rear at a stock 15.3. Seems like a 17kg or abouts should in the ball park. If you are de-linking the brakes and removing all associated items especially removing the mini rear subframe from the rear of the frame that supports the brake lines and blocks then the 929 shock will work nicely and has the same spring rate as the VFR's 15.3 kg. The F4/F4i forks are shorter, I think on my bike ther was only an inch or so above the top triple clamp. I ran stock F4i clip-ons, but they hit the top of the side fairings at full lock. BR
