Hello everyone, I recently bought a 1986 VFR Interceptor, that was sat 8 years in sellers garage, and not really ridden. It's bone stock as far as I can tell, it did have a lot of surface rust and grease etc. but I've managed to get most of it polished and cleaned so the bike looks respectable, but not finished at all. It was originally imported from Germany -I'm in Denmark. I changed the oil, oil filter (hiflo), filled up coolant (reservoir was empty), changed the spark plugs, tanked premium gas (Shell V-power). I have some questions (it's also my first bike) that I hope someone might be able to answer: 1. I've only ridden it a couple of times (maybe 100km in all) and it rides well. But I was expecting a bit more performance wise, from 0-80 km/h it's pretty decent, but going from there it is a bit sluggish. Should I take out and clean the carburators? I put in some Liqui Moly Carb cleaner into the tank which is made for cleaning them, but I know it's not as effective as cleaning the carbs by taking them out, but I would rather avoid that. I am also suspecting the exhaust, as it does have two small holes (from rust) in the muffler. I was going to repair that with Gun-Gum. 2. Sometimes I get a rattle from the right muffler, but I can't locate the source. What could that be? It's mainly heard when idling. 3. I rode about 50km's yesterday, and when turning off the bike there was a "glugg-glugg" sound that was very noticeable -sounded like it came from under the seat. What could that be? 4. How important is it to change the wheels to get bigger wheels and tire selection? Being a new rider, would I notice much difference? It seems like a lot of work. 5. Is it possible to raise the steering, to bring it up a bit in order to increase comfort/rider position? Maybe some spacer or something similar? 6. Are there any replacement 4-2-1 exhaust/muffler systems? I can't really seem to find anything. Or maybe just a aftermarket 4-2-2 system? Or what do you recommend? I've attached some pics as it looks currently Thanks in advance for any input.
