  1. For maintenance items I am adding the following: 1. Clutch and brake fluid flush 2. Coolant flush 3. Possibly new brake pads 4. Possibly new chain and 17/43 sprockets 5. At minimum I'll attach a multimeter just to see what the voltage is doing. 6. Inspect fork seals 7. Check valves Are there any other maintenance items I should add? Thanks.
  2. Yes Sir that was a good day when I brought the bike home! The coolant level was low so I topped that off while doing the oil change. I'll keep an eye on the temps to make sure the fan is coming on when it should. Thanks! The sticker on the right frame was a college parking pass for the previous owner. I took it off along with the factory stickers that were on the top of the fuel tank. Here's another question: Did all 5th gens come factory with a catalytic converter? My first one was a California bike so it had the cat plus the charcoal canister below the
  3. Hello fellow Vifferini! I recently picked up another 2001 VFR800 after a 15 year hiatus from riding. I posted a trip report in the ride reports section documenting the 1,000 mile journey to bring it home. With the bike now in my garage it's time to get it dialed in and "make her mine" so to speak. The goal is to loosely recreate the memory of my first 2001 that I bought new back in the day. Here is my first '01 the day I brought it home from the dealer. I was still living at home at the time so I told my mom it was her mother's day present. ; ) And after a f
  4. Me at Laguna Seca back in 2002. This is in turn 8a also known as "the cork screw".
  5. LOL! Glad someone got the reference! 😉 And I think I will frame that drawing. Great idea. Justin
  6. My fascination with V4 power started back in 1999. I was still new to riding back then. Having been influenced by an older co-worker as well as a good friend, I purchased my first bike, a 91 CBR600F2. I was having fun, gaining some experience and trying to stay out of trouble. Soon after, that same buddy of mine imported two bikes via the grey market: an NSR250 and an RVF400, the latter resembling a miniature RC45. He let me ride both before he sold them. The RVF with it’s tiny V4 had this unique sound and power band. I was immediately hooked. About a year later I sold the F2 and bought a 200
  7. Looking to purchase a Staintune Highmount for 98-01 VFR800. Cash in hand. Can also throw in a used Vance & Hines S4 low mount pipe as part of the deal if desired. Thanks, Justin jroberts427@gmail.com
  8. I have the VIN and I pulled a bike history report. It was not as detailed as a carfax but it showed registration dates from the past two years so it might still be on the road. Definitely a long shot to try and find it but I figured I would give it a try. Justin
  9. Hi guys- Posted this in the USA-West forum but it appears there hasn't been a post there in about a year. Thanks in advance, Justin
  10. Hi guys, I am looking for my old VFR, would love to speak with the current owner to see if I could purchase it back. I bought it new in 2001, put 26,000 miles on it riding all over NorCal. Sold it in 2006 when my daughter was born. The buyer was a gentleman who lived in the Bay Area IIRC. 2001 VFR800FI Red (of course) Mods: Genmar bar risers, Sargent saddle with red piping, Staintune hi-mount pipe LIC: 15V5656 VIN: JH2RC46171M300089 If anyone knows this bike I would be much obliged if you could pass on my contact info. I have attac
