  1. the was a guy doing a crazy detailed 4th gen to rvf replica on facebook.. then it just stops 2 years ago... https://www.facebook.com/The-RVF-Project-149364815117109/ anyone have a clue if there is another page or site or ....??
  2. I'm don't mean just a parts bin bike, new from the ground up. We've got 50 million to burn. then at 450 pounds , youre 100 overweight. magnesium for the swingarm ,triple trees and all unstressed fasteners . titainum for stressed fasteners. and exhaust carbon wheels, body work , subframe and engine case covers.
  3. you need less than 10 grand for that.. 15 for full ohlins.. kinda a 750 with a supercharger and youre stomping everyone.
  4. read the link , all of it . I did and my 83 had the myth . And it also had the unbreakable fiber fuel the tubes that BROKE !!! Still loved'er anyway ! yeah. neither of which were NOT FROM OILING PROBLEMS!!!!!! thats the myth.. oil problems .. the true cause has been known since 1985!!! 30 damned years and people are still saying oil problems!!
  5. STOP SPREADING THIS MYTH!!! for gods sake!! http://www.motorcycleproject.com/text/v4_cams_what.html
  6. Where does that mount? Shape wise it looks like it fits in the front of the engine "V" which is conventional... hard to tell without size scale, is that underseat? all up front
  7. well when living in AZ , i got a second thermosate from a junk yard for a whole 25 cents.. so i cut out the thermo switch and drilled the hole larger , dropped it back in. no worries about over heating due to a stuck plunger ever again in that start and stop traffic !!! . coolant starts flowing from the second you hit the starter.. but we 750 owners have no FI to worry about
  8. Have you done this? What diameter cooper tubing and how many feet of coiled tubing gives an effective cooling loop since there are no fins? yep, on more than a few used 1/4 inch tubing to fit in the cut oil line and used a hose clamp. long story short i did this on a crashed bike just to get it home.. but the guy said it ran cooler than stock .so he brought it back and i made it pretty for him..aka hid the lines . then did it on a few other bikes mainly for steam punk looks. no idea how many feet. i just made it fit the areas i had to work with.
  9. oh for gods sake. just run the oil lines back to the tail and have a copper coiled tube in a shroud with 2 computer fans. you could ride in the sahara with this set up.
  10. leave it alone. it doesnt suck anything.. its a air pressure differential tube. one of them anyway.. if your bike is still idling rough you need to make sure the pilot jets are clean again..
  11. 64 downloads

    Clymer_VF500f service manual 84 and 85..
  12. dude.. you drilled a hole in a pressured system and used silicone to hold it??? how long has it been on there? i really thought you trimmed that shafter and epoxied the sucker or something .. never guessed you drilled a hole.
  13. i think i speak for most of the board when i say.. i hate you!!! just messin!! have fun!
  14. I hope you didn't do it exactly like you've drawn up there ^. If you did, you limited yourself to the current that poor little light bulb can handle when the switch is on for manual operation... and that probably isn't enough to run the fan. Also, if the light bulb burns out your fan will not be working when the switch is thrown. Probably best to continue the conversation. You are indeed right.. i had a switch with a built in light.. my pal used my the above drawing with an led light.. his fan went full speed.
  15. i am sure there are enough down under to use up your stash of delrin
  16. post pic??You mean the ones in the tread arnt enough for you???? I now own that bike:)
  17. -oh for gods sake!! i did this crap on my 86 IN 86.. sheesh!! its simple and not worth 4 pages the thermo opens a connection to the ground.. thats it.
  18. my pal threw away the drive shaft. installed a chain. that simple
  19. here is one idea from a pal in school.. mind you this done on VMAX.. my roomie made a 2000 cc vmax. be bored the cylinder until it was gone!!!!! then he ran sleeves running directly in the coolant!! yep he modded the cams and other stuff. when you have your machine shop you can do what you want.
  20. i\thats right!! and when i finally meet her i will die with a grin on my face
  21. he had the swingarm ON the bike and RIDING IT!! he didnt post more pix after that beacuse he got busy with work not sure if he has completed the front of his bike . but the back was DONE! if i remember correctly .shaved the left side of the frame where the pivot bolt goes as the right side has a screw..he chopped the screw too!
  22. . electricity loves to flow in the path of least resistance. i add more grounds right to the frame as its the biggest negative wire on the bike. when the r/r blows it sometimes allows the r/r to really over charge.. and that will pop the main fuse. the other way the r/r pops is sending too much current to the ground. adding a a neg wire to the battery will help the r/r but not necessarily help the over all flow on the rest of the bike. there are SO many ground wires that are crimped together. or put in a block of connecters like the 5th and 6th gens. those connecter blocks have melted or caught fire on more than a few bikes! . so. i play it safe .. and when i build a harley.. i use this .. i know i know.. makes you wish a honda did the same..
