    What can you tell me about my VF500?

    They sometimes pop up here in the Netherlands. If you like I can ask if they speak English/want to deal with an Irishman.. I once drove 1 hour to look at one "in great shape" and the RHS picture seemed to confimr; only yo find it rotted a hole at the LHS bottom.
  2. Form follows function....... Even with the shorter rubber fitted, making them look less like sagging titties, With soft panniers, they'd still buckle/"be in the way" But thanks to @BluRoad's post, help was on the way with chinesium NC30/VFR400 indicators!
  3. Part 19: The set of Chinese knockoffs I got for my RC51 had no foam bits whatsoever. Comparing with my oem panel, I picked up a bit of dense packing foam and cut to size. The stuff used for instance if you buy an aftermarket lever :-) Wrapped with aluminium reflective tape and double sided sticky tape. For like 5 and 6 I used self expanding foam tape, the stuff builders use to fill minor clearances around window frames. you will get color difference, c'est la vie

    Raising fork legs in triple clamps of 2nd Gen

    10-12mm was about the max on a 4th gen. All you can do is ride a bit with high/low speed, braking hard, hands off the bars with your 7mm. set to 10 and -in a controlled fashion- repeat the ride... From what I recall, 2nd gens are no dumper trucks in the turning department to begin with...

    New ride

    The good news is that you got this behind you now. Because one day you will drop your bike. Most likely the brake pedal can be bent back.. Minor scratches will buff out and a litte rattlecan of black paint for the weight. I already thought I could hear a distant scream "MALAKKAS" earlier, now I know it was you The bad news is: I know your pain....
