  1. 1995 VFR750 w/ 52k miles. Bike is flawless, and has been babied its entire life. Never down, raced, or abused -- adult owned. It's never spent a night outdoors and always washed after each trip. The pictures don't do the bike justice; you need to see it in person to really appreciate it! There are very few unmolested VFRs remaining on the road today - this is one of them! The last major service at 35,000 miles included a coolant flush, new plugs and wires, carburetor sync and adjustment, and a full valve inspection and adjustment. Bike has been run with a 50/50 synthetic blend it's entire life and has never had any mechanical issues -- it's a Honda! Bike has upgraded Corbin Gunfighter seat and backrest ($600+ for the pair!) in matching red along with the original rear seat cover that can be very difficult to find for these bikes. The bike also has a upgraded Honda VFR series regulators along with an integrated cooling fan to help prevent burnouts. The headlights have also been upgraded to McCulloch 5100k HID lamps with motorized hi/lo flappers for safety during day and night riding. Bike also currently has a set of Michelins Pilot Road twin compound tires front and rear that help this bike handle fabulously in all weather conditions. Also have a VFR750 custom cover, Lockhart Racing tank protector, original owner's manual, and the coveted Honda toolbag! As much as I hate to let this gorgeous bike go, I still have Jbow's ST1100 that I picked up a few years ago, and the VFR just keeps seeing less and less use. Time to trim down the toy list a little. Sad to see her go, but want to find her a home with someone that will appreciate and care for her as much as I have! $3,000 OBO -- call Jason @ 480-389-5501 High resolution pics at: http://www.flickr.com/photos/69474201@N06/ Note: Intercom System (Starcomm) has been removed from the bike.
  2. Not mine, but I can take a look at it for someone if need be... http://phoenix.craigslist.org/evl/mcy/2517805220.html

    Valve job.... signs?

    As others have said, it's the oil. Regular oil is thicker when cold and thus doesn't flow as freely through the engine which causes the metallic tick noise. Synthetic won't be as thick and thus flow better and minimize the noise. In the miata I put 20/50 in the summer and 10/30 in the winter to eliminate ticking it in. If I don't switch in the summer the 10/30 is thin enough that it ticks, but if I leave it in the winter it's perfect. Same thing for the 20/50, too thick in the cold winter weather but perfect in the 110 degree days in the summer. And it's really obvious when it's time to change back and forth - the engine starts ticking like a monster...
  6. ... so in otherwords perhaps we shall be riding again?
  7. Might know someone interested in the Wing, but where did all the pictures go Dave?

    Low-Fidelity Version

    Have you cleared your cookies and temp files? Works for me...
  10. Perhaps asking $3800 for a 11yr old bike with 40k+ miles on it is a bit high?
  11. I'll contact the seller and see if he would be willing to send a set out for us to review and then return. After all, we are the world's largest CBR1100XX owners organization!

    Bike surging -- out of town, please help!

    1. Battery terminals, check they are tight 2. Frame ground, check that it is tight 3. FI loom issue, might be a little more difficult to check..

    WTB: Mirror Internals for ST1100

    The family is currently moving, and I rode it up there to lend a hand. The movers came inside and told me that the "bike just fell over as we walked past it". Don't you hate it when bikes decide they want to sit down? In any case, it broke the right mirror cover and shattered the glass, and put a small scuff on the tip over cover. Not a mark on the bags or faring! Pretty lucky all things considered.... First incident with the bike, lets hope it stays that way!

    FS: Honda Elite 250cc Scooter $1900

    Sharp looking scooter!
  15. I figure the chances are low that someone here has the mirror internals for the right mirror on a 91 ST1100, but why not ask right? If you come across a set on another forum let me know! Thanks guys, Jason
