  1. For sale is a near new Delkevic 9" Oval stainless exhaust, Mid pipe and mufflers. I've had this on the bike for maybe 2 months and its had about 500 miles at most run thru it. There isnt even carbon buildup in the cans. it's in the process of a tail swap and the system wont work with it so I'm having a custom midpipe made. Still have the original box with the tube of exhaust sealant. There are zero blemishes on the system. I recently (last week) wrapped the midpipe with exhaust wrap but that will come off before shipping. Everything needed to mount this system will be included.
  2. Just a quick update. Sebastian and I nailed out the tail swap details. Well I fell on a tail section coursing thru the internet and Sebastian (who is a little weary of aesthetics due to its size) has agreed with me. The plan is a Honda RS125 race tail. After days of searching and looking at images of this swap on other bikes as well as on the 125 itself I am extremely excited about the possibility. I ordered a race tail from Hotbodies Friday. 2-3 weeks delivery and then I can start fitment. Everything about this tail changes the visual aspects of the bike. It's prett
  3. I have a build thread going in the 6th gen forum. Have been trying to add photos as stuff shows up
  4. Im in the process of doing an 05 R1 front end swap on my 02 VFR. I started off planning to go the SP2 route, just sourcing the factory parts to make it work. Ended up in a conversation with SebSpeed one day over availability of parts and the ins and outs of what I'd need to complete the setup and he threw the R1 idea at me. He had just got a deposit for a set of custom triples to make the R1 front end work without spacing the wheel or rotors. After about 30 seconds of googling R1 parts and realizing the availability and prices were hands down way better I quickly changed directions and shot hi
  5. Joseph, I am in the middle of swapping my front end on my 02 to an R1 setup. I'll have a complete front wheel with rotors for sale very soon. Just trying to recoup a little of the expense so I'd let it go for 150 +shipping. Wheel is straight with only slight blemishes to the black powder coat. To answer your questions from my research on finding a second set of wheels before I decided to swap front end setups entirely I found that 125-200 was about what you'd pay for a front wheel. Also you can use a 5th hen front wheel that may reduce the price a little but honestly not by m
  6. The R1 goodies started arriving today. Front calipers and master cylinder. Rear F4i master showed up today as well. Just waiting on the extended galfer steel braided line for the shocks reservoir to arrive so I can send it off to Jamie for a rebuild and spring upgrade. Ordered the front rotors (R1) and rear rotor (VFR) from Galfer today. Went with a wave style rotor with black center section as the fork tubes and caliper piston inserts are both gold and I didnt wanna over do it. Unfortunately because they're for different bikes front and rear the wave design is slightly different.
  7. Just a little update. I let Sebastian talk me in to an R1 front end instead of a SP2. Deposit was laid down on Saturday for a set of custom trees and I'll start sourcing 04-06 Yamaha R1 forks and other parts this week. Sebastian (who planned to do the same swap) has kindly sold me some of his excess parts he gathered for his swap along with some parts I need for the delink he had around the shop. I need to get a few things still including the actual forks. From the conversations we have had and the threads I've read for an R1 swap I think my only real iss
  8. Since I really wanna ride like right now I woke up this morning a man on a mission. 2 stores and a few random parts later and I had a solution. Went to home depot and grabbed the hardware I needed to mount the master to the rear set. Also grabbed an axle washer and a box of springs from the door hinge section. Axle washer needed a hole drilled to let it pass thru. I took the spring that fit and fitted it to get a point to cut it down. Since the spring was long enough to use both ends I cut a tad past half just to add tension. If it's too much I can use the other half.
  9. Figured I'd throw in a picture of Sebastian's (Sebspeed) adapter. This thing is beefy for sure. As far as adjustment goes I asked that he make all of my adjustment up and back from stock. I plan to track this bike and ride aggressively on canyons runs so I had no need for forward or down adjustments. I took a pic of the bike with the new rearset in the most forward and down position it had with the stock rear set still on the right side. This allowed me to get a visual of the new rearsets positioning against stock with no adjustment. I took 2 photos for reference. One from the rea
  10. Brake side was not so simple. The 929 brake pedal (on this particular brand of rear set) does not have a tab for the brake return spring. The factory pedal has a tab in the pull portion of the pedal to attach springs for both the return spring and brake light switch. Had to go to the internet to figure out how to work in a return spring. I'm ok with no brake light from the rear brake as I never use it by itself. Note* To do this swap or something similar you'll need the adapter (Sebspeed makes these and the price is very reasonable) Factory master cylinder will require
  11. Rear sets arrived yesterday and man oh man I couldnt get out of work fast enough. Got home and ripped open the package, put the bike up on stands and went to work. Shift side after a little adjusting went on clean. I decided on just 1 position up from stock. As I ride the bike and get use to the new foot placement I may take them back a bit on the adjusters. I set up the linkage for GP style shifting as it's what I've always run from early on. To be honest the last 3 months I've ridden the bike in standard shift has been really difficult. Lots of "shit wrong gear" moments. Here ar
  12. Few pics of SebSpeeds progress on the Rear sets these are 929 adjustable rear sets. Sebastian changed the mounting plate that attaches to the frame, then the rear set bolts to it as it came. Basically fabricated a new part to fit the VFR instead of just making an adapter. I'm choosing to run GP shifting so Sebastian had to work his magic on the linkage to make it all work. I will have to trim a little of the fairing to keep it from fouling but I'm perfectly ok with that!

  14. Guess its time I start one of these. I've already done so much so I'm going to have to get this caught up to the moment. What I started with was a 62k mile, multiple owner 2002. As I went thru it the 1st few days I was happy to see solid maintenance had been done. At the same time there were a few "why do that" moments. Like all visible aspects of the frame have been Plasti-dipped black. But it wasnt really taped off so there's overspray everywhere. Headlight lenses, turn signals and entire taillight had been "smoked" by spraying thin coats of black over. (Yes I said headlight len
