New project bike

Now for those that have followed my 919 i just want to say this is not MY bike but it is a very good freinds bike and I will be helping him out with EVERY step but i get to use HIS wallet this time the best kinda of project

what is it you ask? 1992 (not too old) VFR750F here and its even in good shape.
so far we pulled it in, made sure it was safe to drive, then drove it, not bad but its kinda boggy- no throttle responce on the bottom. so back in it comes and I did a carb sync.... wicked improvement... today will test drive again to make sure its good.
will update that later, but for what everybody wants.....






and yes that is a 8 spoke wheel and no you cant have it


minor plastic damage

paint color still in the air, but we are thinking white, with a very light blue pearl to give it a "ice" look

Have the carbs been rejetted by PO? With that can, that'd be the fiirst order of business.

My 599 have those same brakes from the looks of things. They don't look like much, but I'm pretty sure I can do a 2 finger stoppie on the 599 now that it has SS lines.

It looks really good from your pics. Great base to build on. Congrats.

I am not sure about the jeting of the bike, the carbs do not LOOK like they have been off before, so that is something that we will be doing, not right off as the spark plugs do not show that it is running lean, a little on the rich side really. but after doing the carb sync it has a nice crisp throttle, way better than before. and i hope that i can get him to spring for a race tech front end rebuild. maybe a shock and SS all around

If it runs as good as you say it does, I wouldn't mess with it.

I love those ol Interceptors. I'm always looking at them on EBay.

started to tear down last night, i got him to see the way and buy a sato gp can that fits, put mine on for a quick bit and sounds sooooo nice even with a big 6.0mm gap on the inlet still sounded good. still working out the colors. and fixing the tail, this plastic was/is very brittle and breaks too easy

Great update. You have lots of shit. I like lots of shit. I have shit like yours. I can't tell you how much I use my shit. I don't like anyone touching my shit but I have two fairly respectable boys (so far)

I can't wait to see the next updates. The bike is a very nice starting point. I would say that this is far superior to ANY reality show, but I have never seen a single one.

I said I never had much use for one.

Gorgeous. Just hope he makes the effort it will take to keep that white tire looking sharp. Afraid I'd be too lazy and it'd end up as a drab gray after a month or two.

it should not be tooooooooo bad to keep clean it is really really glossy and most stuff should wipe off if not wd40 will take anything off it, we can just roll it on the lift when we lube the chain and clean the wheel every 500 miles
