  1. He was doing some commentary on WSB in 2019, not heard of him since
  2. As the title suggests does anyone know what the paint code is for the white paint on the wheels?
  3. The ones fitted to pre 17 ones have a removal baffle This one has no baffle with it anyway £290 https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Honda-VFR800-F-X-Akrapovic-Exhaust-Slip-on-2014-on/114733003512?hash=item1ab69eb2f8:g:cI0AAOSw9hBgVKZo
  4. 1 mm thick ABS sheet makes a good skeleton to build on, I replaced a chunk of fairing with that as a working base .....ABS pipe cement for the win
  5. Before you go spending money have you tried the changing seat the seat height ....front on low, rear high and vice versa? I had my seat reupholstered and the seat padding raised by 1” which is much more comfortable Thurn motorsport do lowered pegs by LSL
  6. I’ve had stachions replated and they’ve been fine, significantly cheaper too Not sure where this in relation to you but they offer the service http://framestraightsystem.com/Motorcycle Fork Repair.htm
  7. Brooks Barn have rebuilt a shock for my CBR @£160 Given the age I’d go for a Hagon or YSS unit @£300
  8. Are these the end cans the ones you’re after https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Terminals-Exhaust-Silencers-Approved-Marving-Honda-VFR-750-F-RC24-J-1988-89/294031945991?epid=5014484539&hash=item4475ab7107:g:JO8AAOSw9DNgNxg~
  9. The stuff to effortlessly remove corrosion and discolouration on stainless steel is Autosol Blue Remover Its phosphoric acid in a gel, wipe it on, wipe it off ....just don’t get it on your skin Takes all the effort out and only works on the corrosion
  10. No problem removing the clutch pushrod, you might want to put a compressible sleeve on it to reduce the rust and consequent damage to the seal ... the rubber boots from brake calliper slide pins work a treat filled with grease
  11. Have a look here https://www.airtech-streamlining.com/honda-fairings-seats-fenders-parts/VFR7501994-97.htm
  12. There’s so much VFR750F stuff on eBay and not a lot of it sells, I’ve been sourcing stuff for my 89 RC24, only made for 2 years but I’ve bought everything I needed and some I didn’t .. like a fuel tank with tap for £10 The smaller the lumps the longer they don’t sell, plus of course you have to break it up and waste more time packaging it up, eBay fees, etc Put it on Craigslist as a project
  13. That was to have the seat reshaped to my specifications, after 20k miles the foam had compacted, so they spent about 3 hours on it Check their website and see how much what you want is going to cost International shipping is not as expensive as it used to be, there may be a seat on eBay.co.uk that you could get sent to Sussex Motorcycles and then you’d only have one way shipping
  14. Look for a custom motorcycle seat upholsterer, like this https://saddlemen.com/ I had my 8th gen recovered with non slip vinyl and also had the shape changed with denser foam inserts by these people http://www.sussexmotorcycles.com/elite-comfort-motorcycle-seats.html I didn’t go there, we sorted it out on the phone and it’s perfect .....£140 including insured shipping both ways
