Hi VFR owners and enthusiasts, will you please help me with my dilemma? I saved up some money to put into my VFR (Fi 01) and I have bought a few upgrades for it (future birthday gifts, you know). I wanted bars and stuff that goes along with it so I got : -LSL superbike handlebars conversion kit (+some bar weights to go with them...I want to keep the stock ones in case I want to return to original form) -Fren Tubo custom braided brake line kit (longer to be able to route them "stock" way even with higher bars) -New steering head bearings ("tapered" set from Tourmax to rid me of old sticky "balls" I've got...No pun intended, when I first wrote this) -New (read longer) throttle cables (from 1100 PanEuropean) to keep the cable routing original -And finally new chain and sprockets I've got several questions for people who have done similar mods or just have more experience than me, please. I can do the handlebar conversion by myself BUT I cannot do the other "supporting" mods because I lack tools and experience with them (riveter for the chain and I definetely cannot bleed empty brake lines without tools or set the bearings properly without messing up) 1) In which order should I tackle the mods? All at once, or in small portions? 2) If I give this job to a mechanic, how much should I expect to pay? (maybe I could work with him and help him? ) 3) Clutch hose was promised by supplier of the LSL kit but none arrived, when I contacted him he said it is a mistake on his web (confirmed by LSL that they do not supply the lines)... I want to do the mods with the stock line which should be possible... If I have to change the line, I will go with braided line as it has to be cheaper than OEM Honda line which costs more than 100$ here. The question is: "Are there any differences between hydraulic clutch line and brake lines/ fittings? Which fluid is used? My guess is it is hydraulic but haven't checked the manual yet. 4) Should I watch out for some specific problems?/ Should the mechanic be prepared for something? He services my friends Varadero (also linked brakes, similar year of manufacture) which he rebuild after a nasty crash from bottom up and he knows his stuff so I trust him but still... VFRs have their specific needs 5) I own the bike for a short time so I don't know much about previous service history. Should I clean the calipers even though they work fine just because the brake lines will be apart? I will definetly remember something right after I post this so thank you in advance for your help and please have patience with me.
