    I’m aware of the vibration issues with this model. Last two years they have fitted rubber mounts on the bars. Had a full days demo on one and only have ridden 200 miles on my current new bike due to winter weather and Christmas holidays but have not found it a problem as yet. One thing I have noticed it does throw out a lot of heat. Ok now not quite sure in the summer.

    The 3 year warranty was a major plus point and a local mechanic described seeing some Aprilla engines as if a grenade had gone off 😳. BM also 5k cheaper 😀
  3. Traded in the VFF last week Had some great times on this bike. Enjoyed the 3 years of ownership and it’s never missed a beat. Previous bike was a blade and I still miss the va va voom and the low weight. So was going to buy this But got a better deal on this Maybe in a year or two may return to the VFR when I’m fed up of the wind blast and points on my license 😄 What ever you ride enjoy yourself and thanks for some great advice over the past 3 years.👍
  4. It’s in motorcycle sport & leisure mag. It’s a 6 paged article on buying a used 800 vfr looking at models 2014 onwards.
  5. Read in a magazine today that Honda have extended the first valve check to 24000 miles. Anybody aware of this?
  6. Thanks for the reply. I can see a winter project starting to emerge!!
  7. Who wrapped his bike ? Any pics. Seen some cars wrapped and look dodgy.
  8. Red,white and blue best looking vfr l have seen. Another request for more pics and info. Is the red the original colour? just got to find a decent paint shop in England now. Red, white and blue 🇬🇧 Perfect colour for a UK bike.

    Tires!

    Metzeler Sportec M7 RR. A sporty road tyre that I've used on a cbr 600f, blade and now a vfr. Been around since 2014 so not a new tyre but cannot praise this tyres enough. Excellent stability over white lines, manhole covers etc and excellent on its side. Makes the vfr turn in more smooth and predictable. Confidence inspiring feels like you can really depend on the front. Great grip mid corner encourages big lean and early throttle. Great grip from cold. You trust them implicitly. On the exit hooks up and fooks off. Finds traction over bumps and never had any TC intervention. If you want improve the grip and turn in of your vfr buy the M7 RR. On the blade rear lasted about 4000 miles and front about 5500 miles. Should think the vfr should last somewhat longer. Don't ride through the winter but copes well in the rain and damp conditions. Ps Micheal Rutter took a road legal GSX-R around the TT course and averaged 122mph for one lap on these tyres. The owner took the bike home the next day on the ferry and a 200 mile trip home. Unofficial lap record for the fastest road bike round the Isle. Micheal Rutter on his superstock S1000RR with race tyres he averaged 125.3 mph.
  14. Sweet looking bike. I like the can you put on it much better than the stock one
