my old vfr is on craigslist

the guy i sold the vfr to is moving to portland, and a streetfighter is not welcome to move with him.
http://houston.craigslist.org/mcy/2961913048.html
someone buy this up and give it a good home.
i dropped it in a pothole last year and streetfightered it. it didnt run well for some time, so i didnt ride it while i figured the problem out. eventually i found out it needed a fuel filter. i blew it clean 2 hours before i was to meet the buyer.
one of the pipes on the filter got a little stretched and deformed as i was pulling it off to blow it out. i think the guy never replaced it after i recommended he do so. he's got a rear tire to put on. the one ride i went on after the streetfighter conversion was really great. bike ran lke a bat out of , and the shortened pipe on the back really sounds great.
anyway, this bike wont do you wrong. somebody give it some love. i wish i could buy it back, but thats not happening.

edit: i just saw that my old gps is still on the bike. it has a splash screen featuring my face, name, phone number, and a message: "please dont steal my !"

Sure does look like yours. Didn't you also have some matching hard bags?

Very nice bike at a good price. Those VFRs have great mid-range torque. I'd go check it out if I weren't still busy working on my current bike..

That rear cowl looks kind of weird on a streetfighter, imo. Would be interested to see what it looks like completely naked.

it was enough of a mess to get the front end the way it is. i didnt want to bother with the tail. you can kinda see it in one of the side views, there is a good sized black lump near the neck of the frame, where a bunch of wiring was wrapped up. Motorcycles Unlimited installed the headlight and wrapped/tucked the wiring. they also did a great job relocating the oil cooler to the side of the radiator. i thought that was pretty neat.
there are other same generation vfr's that have been reskinned with modern cbr bodywork. im sure with some effort you could get a smaller, new cbr tail.
i personally dont care for the everything-has-to-be-customized approach to streetfighters. maybe thats a more european take on the genre, but i prefer to lose the visual bulk on he front. it feels lighter, too.
i had also built up a great amount of worry to ride hard or really enjoy myself on the vfr. i didnt want to break the bodywork. 19 year old fairings were kinda costly to replace. the streetfighter setup gave it a much fresher feeling.
rolling burnouts through the gears was a really awesome feeling. some of you other guys might know that with your spiffy modern bikes, but i'm a poor old fart who hasnt ever had a supersport, nor do i plan to.
anyways, someone give the vfr a good home

Don't get me wrong.. That front end looks great, so does the can. Just been a while, and I wanna see what she looks like w/o the bottoms.

In case this was not a rhetorical question.....
Because its engine is classic smooth and torquey, its the first production bike with a single swing arm (years before Ducati), its about 100lb lighter than the monstrosity you ride, and unlike the Z1000 it does have a temperature gauge
Did I mention more fun to ride?

the z1000 is no looker IMO. styling is subjective.

aznconquerer, my name never made it on the title. i think it might have been written on the back of the title. i have the contact info for the owner previous to me, damon. his name is probably the one on the title. some guy named chris owned it before us, and then before that i think was the original owner, whose name i dont know.

as for mechanical issues, i didnt have to do much until i found the pothole and screwed up the fairings.

im sure you will like the bike. im still mad at myself for selling it. there was a lot of drama involved. not with me and the guy you bought it from. that took less than 30 minutes. take it easy on "madison". i'll send you a pm.
