Okay, I am posting this here because most of you know that there is something wrong with me when it comes to bikes. I am a committed husband to my wife, but when it comes to bikes I get bored with them easily. Usually after I have spent way too much money on mods and accessories. This time it is no exception. I am selling a 2007 VFR800 which has 7800km on the odometer and which is about 6months old. I bought it as a runout special so I paid $15000 on road for the bike which is a considerable saving on what they are normally (I think about 18 grand). I am selling my bike for $14500 however the bike owes me $20000 when you include the $5195 I have spent on mods in the last six months. Here they are Motad big bore catalytic converter-less header system $945 Laser deeptone quad mufflers $1800 Power commander $435 Dynojet o2 eliminators (Compulsory for PC install) $30 Zero Gravity tinted double bubble screen $100 Throttlemeister throttle lock heavy version $215 Ventura Rack $165 Suspension mods by Terry Hay Shock Treatment which incude: front: 1kg/mm racetech fork springs Racetech Gold Rebound AND Compression valve Back: Eibach 17.8kg/mm Shock spring Revalve by Terry Hay Installation of a Rebound Seperation Valve 6mm spacer under shock top mount increasing ride height at rear $1500 This is a bike for someone that wants something unique...something that handles like a dream and is comfortable...pumps out 107hp at the back wheel and most of all is an absolute bargain. This is a not negotiable price and I have reported truthfully on all elements of this bike and have receipts for everything....the bike is like brand new, only been subjected to a level of improvement that you generally only get on a bike that someone resolves to keep for years.... so why am I selling the bike? Good question. I initially sold my rather nicely modded SV1000S to get an R1, but around this time my right thumb which I injured back in 2004 started causing me a lot of grief on longer rides so I decided to forgo my life long dream of owning an R1 and get something practical and comfortable... and so I got the vfr800. I initially decided to not do anything to this bike and just ride the thing but after a couple of weeks of getting heckled by my sports bike riding friends about riding a 'commuter' as they called it began to irk me... so I decided to improve its sound, performance handling and looks and I have to say that I believe I have been totally successful. People pull up next to me at lights and compliment me on my bike, the way it sounds (Small block v8) and the way it looks. A couple of weeks ago I got my right thumb surgically corrected (I had a thing called 'skiers thumb' which is a torn ulner collateral ligament of the MCP joint of the hand. Because the injury was so old they had to reconstruct by taking a tendon out of my wrist (Palmaris longis tendon - which interestingly is a redundant tendon in the wrist that only about 15% have) and graft it into my mcp joint . I am still in a cast and cant ride at the moment and wont be back to normal riding self for about another 4 months but when I do I will no longer have the pain and inflammation from my thumb joint while riding caused by my unstable joint. Then I will be off to buy an R1. A lot of people will look at the asking price of this bike and say "But that is not that much cheaper than a new one when it is on runout. Some people do not put any value on modifications. This bike is not for those people. This bike is for the discerning biker who will ordinarily go out and buy a bike and then install an exhaust, install a power commander, get a custom map... get the suspension sorted, install a screen, rack etc etc. The beauty here is that the VFR800 is not a commonly modded bike so it has an originality about it. This bike has brand new tyres on it (Yes new...not used) It has had its oil and filter changed 4 times already in its short life and has just had a fresh dose of motul 5100 in it for the 1st time in its life (Ran the bike in on motul 1000 mineral) The sale is not negotiable sorry, I do really want to sell though as the bike is sitting unused at the moment.
