Default New Toy

I have a new (to me) toy. '96 VFR750



Also included was a parts bike (left). 125 cruiser is probably going soon enough (Right)


Needs one very minor leak fixing, and I'll hopefully MOT it on friday. Moon mileage, but I know it's been well looked after, and it's a VFR, so I'm not worried about it.

It was an absolute steal. He needed the space, and I needed a bike, I offered what I had.

Why don't opportunities like that happen to me?

Well, there's a downside - reg/rec is fucked, typical Honda.

We'll replace it with something decent. Might whack a MOSFET jobbie in there, cost dependant. Bodged it with a SH640D from the 125 for now.

Even more VFR. Ive had mine just over a year and was my first job when i got it. The original ones dont have cooling fins and heat is supposed to dissipate through the frame. Unfortunately because of the rear cylinders the frame gets very hot in that area. Get one with fins. Other vifer owners have re sited them further forward and in the airstream or added a small fan from a computer or as in my case run a piece of hose to carry some cooling air from the front of the bike.
