  1. Did a "Britney" this morning... Oops I did it again Riding on a motorway, thinking I could make it to the next petrol station... Contacted the ANWB and like 10 minutes later, the directorate of public works had my spot secured Followed shortly a flatbed to take me to a petrol station near the next exit
  2. Yes, another VFR750F came my way.... Stood idle for some 5 years., so it needed some love and money.... I posted the progress on prevoius pages
  3. A "creative" restauration. The "registro storico" would refuse to register it. Only 3 "mistakes" versus OEM are allowed, but with the work done, it is a nice 150. But getting it plated in the US may pose some challenges...
  4. 😇 duhhhh.... My VF recenty developped a very small but steady oil drip. So 1st a thorough cleanse was (over)due to see if I could spot the culprit. The usual suspects (oil plug, clutch rod seal) proved innocent. Thinking back, I remembered the last thing done was changing the collector box, so inspected "down below"... Ah! The clamps for the front headers had manky bolts, so I'd grabbed some from the "oldbitsandbobs" box... it transpired these were longer AND I'd rotated the clamps too much "in"... So (both left and right) I had been merily clamping, but pushing into the oil pan as well 🙈... The gasket then no longer was well pressured, causing the "sweat", culminating in drops. I rotated the clamps, cleaned the area put a sheet of cardboard underneath last night. Rode to the office and back today with no more oil leak.... phew! Live & Learn....
  5. I will be in Santander, Spain that weekend (the whole following week for that matter).... Have a good one guys and girls!!
  6. Grabbing life/a chance by the balls and doing it, respect
  7. Removing the starter motor from a VF and VFR750 is quite easy. Especially when combined with an oil filter change. (The filter is in the way). see middle of page 50 🙂
  8. The riding PRECEDES the drinking..... Fair enough, some of us appear drunk while stone cold sober......
  9. I helped a fellow VF owner in the UK out and shipped a rusted, damaged (but salvageable) collector box to the UK.... A week since this appeared online in the tracker but he is yet to receive the letter.... No wonder the Scots want their independance.....
