Though the files herein are shot through with lavish praise for Daugherty Motorsports VFR suspension stuff, I want to reiterate what a transformative effect his suspension components have had on my 5th Gen. There is no doubt that stock suspension quality is the Achilles' heel of most generations of VFRs, though they were not bad for their day. But, suspension quality has moved on significantly over the last 15 to 25 years. Fresh Daugherty suspension will go a very long way toward modernizing the feel of your bike; color me impressed. For roughly $1100 for new fork inserts and springs, and a custom rear shock, your VFR will thank you, and you will thank Jamie.
