  1. Congrats! I know you didn't find your old bike but I know that you'll enjoy making this one yours.
  2. 2002 Honda VFR 800 Interceptor Non-ABS 6th GEN Red 18,791k miles Clean title in hand Bone stock except Corbin seat Located in the San Francisco Bay Area, California. Contact me via forum PM or email Email: jelorian@yahoo.com Cell Phone: 408-242-6448 (text please) $3400 Some info on the bike: I bought this bike in April 2020 with 18,200. She now has 18,791. Around the same time I also purchased a 2001 VFR 800 (5th Gen) and decided to keep the 5th GEN as I don't have room for both. Currently registered Non-Op Bike is pretty much stock except for a Corbin seat. The seat has some piping that is starting to crack but does not affect it at all. Pirelli Angel GT's with plenty of life. Front and rear brake pads have plenty of life Bike was cleaned up and garaged stored the whole time I have owned her The bike has been gone through from stem to stern and is ready for the riding season. Bike will come with 2 keys, a heavy duty Dowco bike cover and Honda service manual She turn 19 this year but still looks great and has many miles to go. Good: Work completed between 5/2020 and 11/20. In addition to the price of the bike, I've put $2000 in parts and labor in getting her back to her former glory. -new oil -new oil filter -new clutch -new clutch springs -new K&N air filter -new spark plugs -new radiator cap -new thermostat -new fork oil -new fork seals -newly painted fork tubes -new brake pads -valves adjusted <- this is the big expensive job -front and rear linked brakes flushed and bled -new FH020AA Regulator/Rectifier from roadstercycle.com -whole cooling system cleaned and flushed -panniers are in great shape but have been repainted (2 keys) Bad: I want to be as up front and honest as possible. Bike has been down on the right hand side by previous owner -scratches on lower fairings -repair and paint on upper fairings (not noticeable from 3 feet away) -scratches on the right hand mirror and bar end -bike was stored outside for part of its life as evident of some metal bits having ocean air corrosion -cracks on the bolt holes on the front fender. They have been reinforced and hold but just wanted to let you know -2 small chips on the gas tank -powder coating on the right mirror base is coming off and starting to rust underneath Test rides at your own risk with cash in my hand and a copy of your M1 endorsed license. You drop the bike you own it. Covid protocols will be observed at all times. Happy to send more detailed pics or answer any questions.
  3. They seem like they are stainless as they are very resistant to corrosion. The stock exhaust on my 02 are in great shape.

    I was about to say the same. Zion?
  5. So 13 years after this recall was made, can one still bring in an affected bike to have the recall work done? I have yet to check if mine falls in the range but I do have a 2002 non ABS model. EDIT: Entered my VIN and there is no active recall for my bike.
  6. expvet, thanks for your reply. It was not the from the radiator overflow tank. Thanks! It was the over flow for the tank. What confused me most was that it was laying along the side of the airbox similar to how it is in my photo. I saw a few diagrams in the owner's manual but it did not show me how it was connected. I found this online and it helped me track down where it connects. http://members.home.nl/jfknippels/tank_removal.html 9th pic down. Reconnected and all is well. Cheers!
  7. Thanks for the info. I downloaded the manual and will take a look. I thought that as well that it came off the tank, but I can't find any place on the underside where it could have come off. I appreciate your reply! Cheers!
  8. So I finally got around to check and see if the flapper/snorkel/PAIR mod was done on my recently acquired 6th gen (it was). I also took out the air filter and cleaned it up. However, I found this tube just laying there and I don't know where it goes. It is a vent tube however I cannot find where it went originally. Any pointers? I'm still waiting for the owner's manual so if there is one online, that would b great as well. Thanks!
  9. Indeed I did. Actually I purchased them 4 days apart! LOL! While I am a firm believer that suspension is one of the most important things to be addressed, I still want to get the best bang for the buck. I am sure that spending $1300 with Jamie on his new BD product will get me one of the better setups as far as suspension, I also need to realize that $1300 is more than 1/3rd the total cost of the motorcycle. With Ohlins even more. I know I can't go wrong with either. I guess it all boils down to what I really want to invest in both bikes. I will always deal with getting suspension setup correctly before doing any engine or cosmetic mods.
  10. Aside from the suspension bits from Jamie Daugherty, what else is out there? Obiously if money were no object I could go Ohlins but I hear Racetech springs are an option as well? While I'm already leaning in Jamie's direction I also want to do my due diligence and make sure I'm making a good investment.
  11. I had long conversation with Jamie today. Good guy for sure. I was debating the F4i front end conversion but decided I wanted to keep things mostly stock. I will most likely do the new BD series on my 01 and the revalve/spring and rework the rear on the 02. He gave me a ballpark figure of $1300 for the BD solution for my 01 and $650 for the 02.
  12. Sorry to revive and old thread but I want to do the same for my 01 for the twistys and my 02 for 2 up riding. Do you mind sharing how much this set you back? I know there are many options like having Jamie rework a rear from a different model (929 seems to be the go to, but Blackbird as well?). Cheers!
