  1. Like I said, why outsource having tinkering fun?? It helps having the missus away for a week... Looking good inside; needs a good flush now...
  2. Front end needs new rotors and pads soon... Picked up an OEM set of rotors recentely, so my outlay is ok...
  3. aaah. I'd do a murder fro a proper one......
  4. These *were* the days..... When it was still safe to grab a Corona.....
  5. Well, the PC shyte has hit Dutch shores as well...... 🤢
  6. There have been various theories on the early VF cam issues, even guys selling kits to add oil lines and reroute some of the flow. I own and run an 86 (with the "half moons" yes) and have no issues. Choose which theory tou beleive or dismiss as "fake news" on the internet. https://www.motorcycleproject.com/text/v4_cams_what.html https://www.math.uwaterloo.ca/~rblander/V4_cams.html One guy crashed his VF400f, kept riding it despite the oil light coming on. Beleiving (you see? one can choose what he beleives is right or wrong). Hhhhm, I wonder what this could have done to the oil pressure.... That is untill the engine seized... His loss was my luck in getting a free engine to play with The oil pump mounting points were snapped of, hence the pump was rattling around This must have reduced/blocked oil flow OOPSIE.... Scrapyard 2.0
  7. Random pics from today's mc show.. XV550 engine (butt ugly bike btw...)
  8. How DARE they?!?!? Selling mc accessoires like wheel chocks and hydraulic tables....
  9. Hi Chris, I sampled various bolt/clamp-on (on my 4th gen/RC36-2) and found them ineffective and more importantly, butt ugly.... https://www.nr1motor.nl/catalogsearch/result/?q=spoiler I bought a double-bubble screen (dead cheap from China) and was happy with it; albeit it will never be effective as the barn door om my brother's Pan European/ST1100... https://www.nr1motor.nl/honda/2017/vfr-800-onderdelen/windschermen-en-kuipruiten.html (these are Dutch retailers) You could try making dummy and affixing it with painters masking tape (that leaves no residue). Do post pictures if you do!
  10. Need new ears.... I donot know, let alone own, how to use a welder. But as long as you know a man that can.... So time to take stuff apart... And here too, you donot HAVE to own all equipment yourself.... Parked up again
  11. Any tips on opening/drilling this one (it came w/o a key)? Prior to resorting to Youtube, I rather read it here..................
  12. "I tinker, therefor I am" -Descartes I own a Pagani, I really do!!!
  13. You clearly know a lot more than me.... Which is no surprise because I'm a 6V virgin..... A lot to learn....
  14. I want a full fairing though - Never understood the lack of wind protection on the Multi. Form over function......
  15. Say it isn't so!!!!! They stopped making these as well eventually..... (it says MV on the package but to all intents and purposes, the engine is a Gilera design......)
  16. Welcome to VFRD from across the pond
  17. I will start off with 6V on this engine yes. Mechanical voltage regulator. The headlight has a switch between generator and battery to bypass the battery should it go belly up The (race)engine that is currently in the frame has no generator and runs on a 12V battery and 12V coil. But lacks the kickstarter...
