  1. Must pack an egg or two . One other thing I have done is cover the tank and rear fairing in paint protection film / helicopter tape to stop the tank bag / luggage scratching the paintwork. Its a bit fiddly to do, but not impossible, and I have found that doing it in sections is best. Everything is done, I am literally waiting for the weather to improve then im off............
  2. Yes, thats what I was after. Thanks, i will keep looking.
  3. Thats a yes please..............drop me a line, thanks.
  4. Are the 8 th generation tail tidies still available ? I saw a thread on here , where the tail tidy had a vfr reflector plate. Any ideas where I can get one please ? Thanks Regards, Nat.
  5. No you can't . Discontinued. Are you worried about breaking/cracking your fairings or just scratches/general damage. If its the latter get some clear protective film put on . I have done mine but for different reasons. Touring and didn't want the luggage/tank bag scratching my paintwork. All you can do is buy second hand .
  6. Thank you for that. I have accepted the Spanish offer . I need to see if they actually turn up. If they don't then I will be in touch . Thanks very much for taking the time to reply. Regards, Nat.
  7. Panniers are discontinued. Trying to find a dealer who might have a nos set lying around, Found one in Spain of all places for Eur500 which is a very good price. Im trying to order them but think they are having a siesta again . Now the VFR is discontinued here , some dealers are selling off all their accessories/extras , clearing inventory and I have picked up many parts @ less than half price. There is 1 dealer over here that has 5 sets of red panniers but he wants £845 , so he can keep them . Thanks for the good wishes and heres hoping the sunshine comes early.
  8. My Center stand is in rather poor condition . I am considering replacing it. I am a YEAR 2000 , 5 th gen VFR . My question is this . Will a 6 th gen center stand fit a 5 th gen bike . They certainly look very alike. 5 th gen part No 50500 MBG 000 6 th gen part No 50500 MCWD 000 Thanks, Regards, Nat.
  9. I had to haggle very hard to get it, the main issue is I wanted RED. There are still some silver ones left but not so many red ones. I think I will try and find a set of paniers for it but Im not paying full price for those . With regards to getting another bike past the bike police ( Wife ........do you need another bike ? ) , I have never forgotten this advert that I saw many years ago . I think Steve got many phone calls. 2006 Suzuki GSXR1000. This bike is perfect! It has 1000 miles and has had its 500 mile dealer service. (Expensive) It's been adult r
  10. Douse it in penetrating oil. Give it a chance to work then use a Large hammer and a punch.
  11. You are right. It shall be ridden like it was stolen !
  12. Well Mr Club Racer from Scotland, this is your fault. I went for the " buy now, explain later " approach. Given they are discontinued ( confirmed ) and Honda will not make any more , certainly not for us , I bought today the last Red one I could find for £8,995.00 Brand new although pre registered , zero miles still in its crate. There are still 2 silver ones left at this price , but I had to have red. Managed to get a Titanium Akrapovic, quick shifter , rear hugger and bar risers in the deal although not for free but at a very heavy discount .
  13. Yes I was referring to the black switch mounted on the lhs bar riser.
  14. My Centre stand is in rather poor condition . I am considering replacing it. I am a YEAR 2000 , 5 th gen VFR . My question is this . Will a 6 th gen centre stand fit a 5 th gen bike . They certainly look very alike. 5 th gen part No 50500 MBG 000 6 th gen part No 50500 MCWD 000 Thanks, Regards, Nat.
