  1. Reduce the weight, smooth out the transmission, and this could have been the "new" 6th or 7th generation. Beautiful bike with it's white wheels.

    Great photo of these beautiful RC30s. I had one and loved it. In my opinion this photo really shows how much nicer looking the white wheels are. I may have to get my '98 VFR wheels painted white one of these days.

    RC30 RHF 1024

    Like a super fool I had one and sold it. Duh A minor problem is that it was really designed for the track and not the road. First gear is tall and it overheats easily in stop and go traffic. I changed the front sprocket and that helped. Never did get the heating problem resolved. But .... it's the kind of bike that when you come home from a ride and park it in the garage, wipe it down, and then just stare and adnure it for quite a while. So.....why can't Honda build beautiful bikes like this today. Most new sport bikes, IMHO, are ugly and hurt my eyes. The RC30 colors on a 5th generation VFR would look great. I should do it ~

    VFR800 RC30 Paint 033

    Best looking 6th generation I ever saw! Now, you need to exchange the stock fairing fasteners to dzus fasteners like the ones on real RC30 bikes. You can get them here . . . http://kurveygirl.com/shop/index.php When I had my RC30 I sooooo appreciated the dzus fasteners. I wish the hell Honda would put them on all their bikes!

    My dream-wish is for Honda to give us a VFR1000cc bike with this style (maybe a little more upright riding position), with a RC30 paint scheme. This bike is soooooo much better looking than the silly new bikes with their wasp tails.
  6. I am in the early stages of restoring a 2002 model and I think this is going to be a great help. Thanks for your effort.
  7. I used the original "lever skins" for several years sport-touring on my Suzy Katana 1100. They were pretty easy to install, using an air-gun. If you don't have an air-gun you might try water. I thought they were great and I might try them again on my VFR.
  8. Does anyone else think the headlight resembles the head of a Praying Mantis? When I saw it in person that's the first thing that came to mind ~
  9. KENDALL, best crude oil in the US. Have used it for years in everything. Change it and OEM filter every 3,000 miles. Only problem is it is getting harder to find.
