Lowers AND matching upper, with is critical. Mini 1000R that doesn't weigh 600 lbs.
The only thing that made nose wrinkle is the possible VF750F forks. No real benefit there. 39mm, bleh. Odd caliper TRAC mounting...
As someone who got his street start on a VF500F, and currently own 4, look forward to reading and looking at shit.
Jesus, what a hack whoever was in there.
Let me get some good close-up pics of a complete set this weekend. And "return" spring is not the right...
We've ascertained that.
There might be some separator springs missing too. If carb guru left that one out, the other ones are more easily...
Don't bother. Won't help.
Engines are very strong... when they have oil. Transmission are pretty solid... when they haven't been thrashed...
This weekend I'll dig out some 86 carbs and we can document what needs to be there.
Not my favorites, but that one sure looks in good shape and is a nice period correct piece. Cool! Gonna sound good (hopefully) for sure.

The 4 are vent. I usually just connect the front together and the...

Dig that sucker out. Yeah, same 2 years for the US.
Had a Sudco 4-1 on it when I first built it. Because I bought the two LAST new systems...
Smash cut to the
"Well... I bought it."
You fucking didn't say you had VF500FII cowlings. Or at least I don't remember. Pretty cool score.
Agreed. But I'd rather spray the calipers out with a little Brake Kleen when I'm done.
With my aux master, I've popped a few calipers open I was sure were fucking toast. The pistons look new. Ultimately, it can depend on where the...
I have a 1100 Shadow master cylinder (that I keep "bled") mounted on a piece of pipe just for this reason. I mount it in the vice and hook up my...
And steering head bearings.
See, that's the problem. After potentially working on it all winter and still not have a bike to ride, even $500 would piss me off.
