  1. https://www.marktplaats.nl/plaats/m1448933598/view?c=be2da871b0d84f75c3056cc6db858f31&previousPage=lr VFRD members get a discount!
  2. PC's are 5 volt no? Versus 12 volt on our bikes....
  3. Send both keys as it "proves" you didnot just give the key to the tea leaves.... Take note of the numbers on the key as this will allow getting new ones methink. Or buy a set of locks with the key number of your new bike.
  4. Fitted the dent free tank, checked the cams on the rear bank while I was at it. Surface of the lobes looking good The chrome pipe in th coolant system was painted over (to hide corrosion?), so I fitted a better looking one...
  5. This one is for sale.... I make u special price!!! "for old times' sake" 50,000km, so this one did not go BOOM when new.....
  6. Welcome to VFRD from across the pond! And indeed, w/o a picture of your bike you are nothing but a mirage...
  7. That sucks big time; brings me back to 1989....... If not done already READ through your insurance policy details to make sure you donot make ANY statement that can make the insurers not pay out...
  8. Cheap? Either use tape on the outside to push the cracked halves together or affix the crack with a tiny drop of superglue. Dremel a wee V-groove on the inside along the crack, drill a tiny tiny tiny hole at the end of the crack. sprinkle in a little trail of baking soda, draw a line of super glue over it, sprinkle baking soda over it right away. Solid! I have a sneaky suspicion that the "special" powder (in whatever color) is baking soda/natrium carbonate sold at a premium...
  9. Lucky purple heather!!!! Due to the warm weather and unexpected heavy rains, the heather decided to come out to bloom en masse. So I set out for another spin (some 200kms) on the 37 yr old.... Dutchy loves birds, bees and flowers..... Next thing I swear I can hear Billy Joel in my head with Goodnight Saigon?? Huh??? Ah!!! My tax dollars @play!!! And hot damn, them jets fly really low!!!! Filled up at what used to be Gadaffi's money maker.... (note that since this place is in the centre of our bible belt, this unmanned petrol station is CLOSED on sundays....) Lastly, no Dutchy report w/o a windmill eh?
  10. Hope you get it sorted soon, give things a good Tank breather hose clear? If you still suspect the fuel pump, just unhook it electrically and connect the hose from the fuel tank straight to the fuel filter. Keep at least a 1/4 in the tnak and she will run fine.
  11. 280KMH (on GPS not tacho) on German Authobahn; a section that is STILL has no limitation. More and more section are.... 😞 The RWB in the back stays just shy of 200KMH...
  12. A next owner may do so.... I've put her up for sale
  13. Good to have a stash of spares...... the "ring" that was on the bike was grotty/oxidised...
  14. It is part of the pump assembly (on top; in the drawing above to the right). AFAIK, the way it works is that as the plunger rises if will eventually push the contacts towards each other. This causes a "short"(hence a spark) which will cause the plunger to fall back. And repeat. I once posted a small video of this in action but it is lost forever... Your bike WILL run OK w/o the fuel pump, just re-route the hoses. I'd make sure (jist guueessing) that I'd not let the fuel level in the tank drop below 1/4. The fuel relay ensures that if the engine stalls, so will the pump. To avoid that (in case of a crash for instance) the engine is off but ignition still on, fule will continue to be pumped.
  15. The owner is Jeroen Versteeg, he organises trackdays; here his FB https://www.facebook.com/trackdays.forall No doubt he will understand your english Maybe wait a little with contacting him; last week a participant died at the Assen track. Rider crashed in light rain, was hit by one of the 2 bikes that crashed shortly after him. Funeral is tomorrow.
  16. New set: I filed the old contact point somewhat, but you can see the effects of sparking By design, there will always be a spark. This can be diminished by adding a diode in the path. These pictures were lost when Photobucket ransomed the stored pictuers..... but if you google you will find similar how-to's
  17. Do inspect the "contact points" inside/top of the fuel pump. A replacement kit is available when these are eol/starting to "weld" together. I will dig out some pictures tomorrow. Close to midnight here...
  18. In the Netherlands, once I register my bike ( any number) I must insure it (at least liability). But then I can let anyone ride it occasionally. Road tax is Eur 10 per month Vehicles >40 yrs are exempt from road tax,. >25yrs only pay 25% of the annual fee, but may not be used December-February. Suspending a plate is Eur 24. reactivating free. Liability insurance for my VF500F2 for instance is like Eur 60 per annum.
