vfr project

its a 2002, every thing is there..... somewhere its getting a paint job staying with the oem red but going to dress it up a bit. going through it nothing has been done to it...EVER once i figure out how to post cell phone pics i will post up the picture from before i took it apart.

its going to be a easy project its going to be set up for tour duty with hard bags that are quick diconnect for more aggressive riding.

though they do just fine with the bags on.

I think he sold the 9er, got a chicken, and sold that, too. Way to stick with Hondas.

Are you just doing cosmetic and touring mod work or are you also doing mechanical work? What is the mileage on it?

I look forward to seeing more pics.

You went from a 919 to a VFR, I went from a VFR to a 919 lol. The 919 was much more nimble, but the VFR suspension was AWESOME

Bags are excellent quality and have a great amount of space. Let me know if you want them, $60 shipped, practically new condition. Only reason I'm getting rid of them is because they are too big for my f4i and run into my side mount exhaust.

I also went to a VFR but I'm glad i kept my 919.
919 is better in town and in the heat. VFR is great on the hwy. If I had to choose only one i'd pick the 919.

Nah, I tossed the bracket when I sold the VFR. I made it to fit my bike so it hooked onto a bracket I had made for my fender eliminator.

and for a few picture up dates
got it all painted and going back together, race tech front end (just springs for now)
it will have to get painted again next year, it came out way to orange for me(does not show in pics) and i dont have enough money to paint again this year.
im starting to powder coat a few things here and there.


mounted a voltage meter to keep an eye on stator. damn thing will not charge over 14.0 volts but that was common on the 02s hopfully it will be fine. i hate to buy a $300 stator anytime soon.



my new exhaust





mine is on the right

Those bags will fit lots, tons of room. Of course hard bags are always to be desired. I don't think I'll ever get hard bags until I find a career.
