  1. hey thanks for getting back at to me Im very curious about this bikes past. ok maybe saying a "two brothers slip on" was incorrect. It is definitely a carbon fiber two brothers racing "muffler" for lack of a better term. But its definitely on the left side. I will takes some pics when it gets light out. As for the color, the label on the sub frame, about the rear inner fender the code is for the blue matallic, but my bike is red. The gas tank, with honda decals. Fairings with VFR decals, the whole 9. So the original owner must have actually swapped fairings, tank, etc. with a 1991? 199
  2. Thanks for the advice guys. As for the question of the age of the shock, I'm not sure. If I had to guess I'd say 10 years old at least. The reasoning behind that is the person I bought the bike from owned it for 10 years and only put 10,000 miles on it.

    Hey I live in the Lebanon area. Keep an eye out for another red vfr doing about 100mph down I-89. Welcome to the best vfr forum on the web!
  5. First let me thank all that replied. It is greatly appreciated!! Ok so my bike is up and running again and unfortunately I have no one to blame but myself. I took the battery out a couple days ago to make some adjustments to the rear shock. Its a penske so the adjustments aren't in the same places as the factory shock. So anyway I struck out on adjusting the shock and put the battery and battery box back in. I must have pushed an important wire down too far because the exhaust header had melted a section of wire coming off the R/R. Luckily all I had to do was replace a 30 amp fuse and p

  7. On my way to work this morning my 1992 vfr750 was running just great...then as I'm coming to a stop light, slowing down, applying brakes and down shifting the engine just dies. Now I have no dash lights. A jumper pack on the battery wont even get any lights to come on. Also tried jump starting it with no luck. Any help would be greatly appriciated as my beloved bike is dead on the side of the road Thanks
