    Double Vision

    Great photos! Was the 840 conversion worth the effort and cost?

    Heading Home. Old pacific Hwy

    I have that helmet (Shark Spartan carbon), best helmet I've ever owned.
  3. I can't speak for the 5th Gen, but I'm pretty sure I read that when HRC went to a 6" rear wheel on the RC45 it was offset to the front wheel (because of swingarm clearance issues) and apparently it made no difference whatsoever to how the bike tracked.

    RC36.2 (4th Gen) Fuel Injection discussion

    A member here was looking into doing this some years back, pretty sure they were trying to fit GSX-R throttle bodies to a 4th Gen. IIRC the topic petered out without the motor ever firing up.

    RS850 Replica

    That's terrific!!!
  6. It's not what you've got, it's what you do with it, Chris... My trick is to fit smaller bodywork, which makes it look bigger
  7. Hi John I have a Triumph eccentric in my 4th Gen swingarm, with an 848 Marchesini. I had the axle shortened and re-threaded as it was around 30mm too long for the Duc wheel. The original Triumph two-piece nut/collar fits, and so does the aftermarket alloy Ducati one-piece nut/collar I bought for about $50 off ebay. They are the same thread.

    I still reckon you need that chain of mine... it matches the wheels!

    4th gen Coil on Plug mod (split thread)

    No thanks, I'll wait till you tell me which ones actually work and then buy those

    Vfr 750 - 92

    CBR900RR up to 1996 or so fit, as do 2007-2008 Yamaha R1. Nice bike, enjoy!

    So I might have done a thing......

    Great choice Rob! One of those rare motorcycles where form really does follow function.
  12. Nice score - it has some good stuff on it. And nice work with Photoshop too, what you've envisaged is realistic and you're already well on your way. WackenSS mentioned some performance mod ideas - the reality is that those ideas are almost all you can do unless money is no object. But he also did throw 'weight' into the equation and the very nature of a SF VFR means that a lot of weight is ditched - and that's where you get your additional performance.

    OMFG

    That's crap. A mate's VFR fell over years ago and the footpeg on his XR400 punched clean through the VFRs tank too. It'll look grouse with a 6th Gen tank though
